Beautiful hotel, idyllic location
A really lovely hotel set in the most idyllic setting. My family and I spent a really lovely midweek break in your gorgeous hotel, our room was beautifully located overlooked the Oysterhaven Bay, was ... spotlessly clean, with lovely decor and warm, most relaxing and comfortable surroundings. We also enjoyed the delicious and large breakfasts each morning. The swimming pool was also lovely and the staff throughout the hotel were so friendly and most helpful. On one of the mornings we took a smashing walk around the grounds from the rock garden and bridges to the vast beauty of the bay. The hotel was only a short drive from Kinsale another little gem. All in all we spent a most enjoyable stay in the Carlton Kinsale Hotel & C Spa. Thank you sincerely to one and all. ---
Great Wedding Venue
I was proud to be Best man for a recent wedding held in the Carlton. Nice location, Lovely ambiance, outstanding food and a very professional service. Everything was catered for so well (including my own nerves). We'll definitely be back for the next wedding !!!

Carlton Kinsale
We had a pleasant stay in the Carlton, having had difficulty with the rooms on the first night we were moved to a garden suite on the second. The leisure centre is lovely, we felt there was no atmosphere in the Bar area. The grounds could do with some maintenance.

Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent visit to the Carlton Hotel Kinsale. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. I am glad to see that the problems you had with your room were dealt with in a timely manner and did not detract from your stay with us. I take on board your comments on our bar area and we have looked at the background music and lighting in this area with the view to improving the atmosphere. We have a property maintenance company now on board also in order to keep the grounds tidy and manicured. Once again, thank you for your feedback. Kind Regards John McGrath General Manager
Couples Retreat
went away with 3 couples, would definitely recommend it, we enjoyed a meal before going into town for few hours, had the use of the residents bar on return, rooms were very nice with fab view,option of watching a movie, use of the pool which was very relaxing with various jets in the different corners of the pool. Overall very enjoyable stay

Wonderful Apartments
10 of us stayed in 2 apartments and they were absolutely fantastic. Only down size to night was the make-shift bar as the main bar was closed due to renovations but the replacement was sadly lacking in atmosphere. Otherwise great hotel, great food, superb location
Excellent Value for money..A1 hotel
I had the opportunity to stay in this beautiful hotel just after the new year, the hotel and grounds were immaculate and beautiful even at that time of the year. Overall i had a relaxing and peaceful time and have recommended this hotel to many friends and family.

Like an oasis hidden away but near enough to Kinsale too
My sisters and I were planning a night out in Cork but then decided to stay at the Carlton and have a night away which was a nice treat. We had a lovely tasty 3 course meal included in a special offer ... that was on and this 1-night stay with such delicious food was really value for money. We ate in the bar which didn't have the best ambiance but the restaurant upstairs was being refurbished so I guess we'll have to return to sample dinner there next time!!! We availed of the taxi service to Kinsale in the evening and the taxi drivers were so friendly and helpful so praise to them too. Hope to return again. ---

Lovely Stay
I stayed here in January and had a lovely night. The room was really clean and comfortable as was the bathroom. Only downside was the bar which at the time was located downstairs which I think was a temporary location. It wasn't nice to sit in at all.
Find love again
A truly breath taking, luxurious hotel and surroundings. Haven't felt so pampered and relaxed in a long time. The food and service was truly taste budingly tingling. It was nice to fall in love in this romantic lovable setting all over again. Well worth the break away, many tanks to all x
