We were made very welcome. The property is in a good location just a couple of minutes walk into town.
Our stay at the Desmond House was magical. Michael is the perfect host: very welcoming, full of information, and bakes his own scones!
Our room was spotless, spacious and very comfortable.
Everything is provided, and the breakfast is just perfect, with everything you could imagine, even more!
The location is very central, there is a lovely restaurant nearby called the Crackpot.
We look forward to coming back to Kinsale.
Amazing place to stay! Right in the centre, close to amenities and restaurants, this B&B will welcome you in its spacious and elegant rooms. Bonus: the massive bath tub, that was greatly appreciated! Breakfast is huge and the full irish one is made with top quality products. Michael is thoughtful and helpful and will suggest you what to do in Kinsale and where to go for dinner. Thanks Michael :)
We had an absolutely lovely stay at Desmond House in Kinsale. Gorgeous, large room in an adorable part of town. Michael was the perfect host; attentive and available, friendly and accommodating. I would recommend Desmond House and Michael to anyone and we hope to have the chance to stay there again!
The Desmond House is wonderful; we stayed in a clean and lovely spacious bedroom with en suite. Breakfast menu is wonderful with numerous choices. Michael is very kind and gracious host with great knowledge of Kinsale and the southern coast, He is very helpful with "must see" suggestions and restaurant recommendations too. We will recommend the Desmond House to friends and family, and hope to stay at the Desmond House the next time we visit Kinsale. Thank you Michael!!
