Our stay was excellent. Richard is one of the nicest and most welcoming people we met on our trip. The views from here are just amazing. The room was cosy, and everything was neat and tidy. If you are visiting Kinsale and have a chance to stay here, definitely do.

Richard and Martina were fabulous hosts! Greated us when we arrived with coffee and had many suggestions for dinner. The description of the location was perfect and the town was beautiful! We had such a lovely stay and would love to go back and visit.

Our stay at the Anchor Lodge was absolutely wonderful! Richard and Martina were very kind hosts and made sure that we had everything we needed. The room was clean, neat, and had a view of Kinsale that was stunning! Breakfast in the morning was delicious, with a range of things for any diet. The Anchor Lodge is a little outside of the main part of town, but very close to Charles Fort and a lovely little pub, the Bulman. If we could have stayed longer, we certainly would have!! Also, extra thanks go to Richard for providing us handwritten directions to the next town on our journey...he certainly went out of the way to make sure we knew where we were going!

Richard and Martina are wonderful hosts. The morning breakfast is an amazing spread. The house offers breathtaking views and is a short distance from the picture perfect town of Kinsale. Would stay here again no question .

My spouse and I had a beautiful stay at the Anchor Lodge B&B. It is very near Charles Fort and a beautiful 2km walk to town. Breakfast was great and Richard and Martina were very nice. Very quite relaxing B&B. Would highly recommend.

First, I called once I got into Kinsale, Richard said from my location best to wait for him to come show me the way, as it was rush hour. Great service, perfect place to recuperate after driving from Dingle. Excellent scrambled eggs and smoked salmon breakfast, stimulating conversation.

Not only was the city of Kinsale one of the most beautiful towns we have seen, but our stay with Richard and Martina made it truly unforgettable! Delectable breakfast, gorgeous room and the sweetest hosts! If you don't stay here, it will be your loss.

Richard & Martina User ProfileRichard & Martina is a superhost.

I am English and my wife Martina is Summercove born and bred. We met when I came over for the Kinsale Jazz Fringe Festival, October 2002, and ended up moving over just over 2 years later.
We have both traveled extensively and enjoy other cultures, cuisines, music and meeting local people. Our favourite way to travel is to book a flight and a vehicle and then see where it leads us. Now we've found airbnb, future trips should be even better.
