Terrific experience staying with Michael in Kinsale, he was so knowledgeable, helpful and great fun to talk to. Breakfast was amazing also.
Michael was an amazing host and the Desmond B&B is one of those rare finds that you're almost reluctant to tell other people about -- amazing history, picturesque location, great food, wonderful host. Michael helped us with reservations, knew the history of the entire town and could even tell us where every part of out traditional Irish breakfast came from -- eggs from here, sausages from there, pudding from here. The room was quiet and clean, the bathroom was modern, and the whole place looked like an advertisement for the perfect Irish getaway.
Michael was an excellent host! Gave great recommendation on where to eat and what to do while in town! Great place to stay, best village in Ireland! Rooms were huge and well kept and en suite bathroom was really nice. Great old house with lots of character and very central! Would highly recommend it!!
It was so nice to be staying in this beautiful, spacious, beautiful and CLEAN place. The room is gorgeous, with lots of stunning details. Bedroom is quite large and the bathroom is very spacious. Michael is an amazing host with his witty sense of humor. And I had the BEST Irish breakfast served with care and love from Michael. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
The Desmond House is a beautiful place to stay and in a perfect location. Michael is a wonderful host and very helpful. He is amazingly nice and makes a wonderful breakfast! He helped plan our day in Kinsale and had a great route for our trip to Dingle. I would stay here again and would recommend The Desmond House to anyone visiting Kinsale.
Michael is an absolutely super host. Very available but not intrusive. Very attentive. And a delight to converse with. Great location, uniquely special accomodation. A true B&B, so a delicious breakfast in high style.
My husband tom and myself absolutely loved the Desmond House. The room was one of the best of our trip, lots of room to move around with a king bed! It is perfectly situated.
