Had a wonderful one day experience in Kinsale. The property was fantastic and our hosts were more than accommodating. I wish we could have stayed longer... And did I mention the breakfast was amazing!
I really enjoyed my stay here. Martina and Richard were so welcoming and friendly. The house and room are exactly as pictured. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the room was spotless. Would definitely recommend.
We enjoyed one night with Martina & Richard. The room was very comfortable & the bed great with lovely linens and ensuite is large.The location on the hill give fabulous views ..they are very lucky to live in this picturesque town of Kinsale ,the local pub is handy to walk to for a good meal. All round after a good sleep we felt refreshed for further travels to Dublin.
We travel widely. This is our first time using AIRBNB and we will continue to use them following this experience. My wife and I stayed 3 nights over a weekend with Richard and Martina; who were very welcoming and gracious hosts. Their stone-built home is really beautifully finished throughout. Our bedroom and en-suite bathroom were spotlessly clean and nicely furnished. The views over the bay are stunning from the veranda and Kinsale town is a nice easy amble away. The breakfasts were prepared to our choice and were really excellent. Overall we would give a 10/10 rating. Thank you Richard and Martina.
Amazing b&b, great view over the harbour, great walks around and one of the most famous pub&restaurant in Kinsale the Bulman pub at your step door, top class food!
The previous reviews were all spot on. Place and couple living there are lovely. Glamourous b&b en par with a hotel. Great breakfast too! Can't complain.

About the Host, Martina
I was born and raised in Summercove and so am a true native of the area. I met my husband Richard, when he came over for the Kinsale Jazz Fringe Festival and he 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.
