Love this Hotel!
This hotel is in a very quiet location, the suites are fabulous!! Have had dinner in both the bar and restaurant, you have to try the mushrooms with blue cheese!! The chef makes fab biscuits to go with your tea or coffee. Have stayed her a number of times and will be back again!

Very Family Friendly
We had a lovely 3 night stay this week in your hotel. We had a fantastic break with our 2 year old, nothing was too much for your staff, they were very understanding towards children and nothing was too ... much for them. Rooms were perfect, great size and pool was lovely. Food fantastic, only one small negative thing, service was a bit slow in the restaurant/bar, when you have kids, time is of the essence but the quality of the food did make up for it. Thank you again for a lovely stay ---

Wedding at the Carlton
My sister recently had her wedding at the Carlton and the staff were amazing. Anything we asked for (even 20 safety pins) they got for us. They were very helpful and the food was amazing. Really enjoyed it - would recommend.
Erica Murphy
Excellent Quality & Service
During our stay my daughter was unwell. Your staff were very accommodating and helped us in every way possible. Kinsale is our favourite place in Ireland and, hopefully, we will be returning soon.

Really enjoyed our stay. Very relaxing .Staff very helpful and friendly. Taxi service was a great asset when going into town. We had the best of both worlds- relaxation and night life!!! Thank you!!

Wonderful break
Just had a three night stay. We needed wheelchair accessibility for my husband and it was second to none. All staff members were friendly, helpful and observant. The food and service were excellent.
Brilliant Hotel
Stayed here for a night awhile back. Beautiful room, excellent service from reception to dining room. Exquisite food, lovely comfort, breathtaking scenery. Overall would recommend this to any age.

Fantastic location
Unfortunately when we arrived the bar was under refurbishment which meant all were in the one restaurant area for eating, would love to go back again as we enjoyed the food and service.

nice hotel, pity about timing!
I stayed for one night in January with my boyfriend for his birthday, the room was lovely and the staff were great. one big complaint! lots of renovating being done at the time. was met by a wheelbarrow ... full of rubble in the hall way after checking in! also just things like chipped paint and missing skirting, that kind of ruined it for me, made the trip feel less special for a four star hotel! food was delicious and the entire break was incredibly reasonable. ---

Thank you for your email and feedback regarding your recent stay with us. May I apologise if our renovation work detracted from your stay with us, we did make every effort to ensure disturbance was kept to a minimum. I would hope that this would not put you off returning to the Carlton Hotel Kinsale again and would be delighted to welcome you back so that you may experience the finished product of our renovation work as well as our new menu offering in the Rockpool bar 7 restaurant. Once again, thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. Kind Regards John McGrath General Manager
