I called Claire on Friday morning for a room that same night. She said "Sure, no problem." I asked her if she took B&B vouchers and she said "Sure, no problem. What time can I expect you?" She didn't ask for a credit card deposit or make me go through any of that hassle. When we arrived we found out...

In Ireland for 10 days, we were looking forward to a day away from the hustle and bustle of things. After much research we decided on Rivermount House. We were greeted straight away by Martin and made the perfect breakfast by Claire. Our room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The views are spectacularly breathtaking and the inside of the home...

We were greeted at the door with "an I'm sorry we only have single beds available". Tiny room. No light bulb in main lamp. Pretentious decoration with bad craftsmanship (chipped tile and grout). Our room overlooked owners private yet dingy yard. Not close to town--about 5km. I'm really shocked about the other good reviews. This is no where as welcoming...

It took me a while to write this review because we came home and got back into the busy routine of life. But every once in a while when I stop and remember our trip, it is the view from the sitting area of this beautiful B&B that I remember most fondly. Everything we had ever heard about Ireland was...

We decided to stay at this location because of all of the positive reviews and were not disappointed. Only staying one night, we felt very welcomed (even though the proprietor forgot we were arriving that night). The room was spacious and very clean. I did have some trouble with getting hot water in the shower, but it may have been...

We stayed here one night. The room was roomy, clean and modern. The breakfast very nice. The rooms were full and seemed to be people everywhere.

A delightful surprise as we drove up to a spacious, gracious, contemporary home overlooking breathtaking scenery. We were greeted warmly and our party was shown to large, comfortable, beautifully decorated rooms. One would have thought we were in a posh hotel! And yet our hostess, Claire, sat and chatted with us, introduced us to her family, and helped us make...

This was a great place to stay near Kinsale. The view from the Rivermount is amazing. We received a warm welcome when we checked-in and some ideas for where to eat dinner. It was all very nicely decorated. The rooms were nice, great showers and comfy beds. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. Only downfall is that there isn't anything withing...

This is an exceptional 5 star B&B. The ensuite rooms are clean, roomy, with very comfortable beds. Lots of little personal touches abound at this B&B. The living area and drawing room are absolutely gorgeous and a great place to relax. Breakfast was a real treat with an abundant of home cooked choices. The owners were so friendly and very...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Overlooking the scenic river, Rivermount House completed a total upgrade and refurbishment in 2008. It offers four-star quality at affordable rates. We feature classic mahogany furniture, heavily embossed wall coverings and exquisite soft furnishings, which have all resulted in creating an ambiance of luxury comfort and style. With a classy polished marble foyer, this accommodation feels more like a boutique hotel but with the personal attention and traditional warmth of a B&B. ... more   less
