Fantastic location
The Carlton Kinsale is situated at the end of a wooded drive overlooking Oysterhaven Bay.Many of the bedrooms overlook the water as does the restaurant and pool.Large impressive lobby with efficient receptionists on duty.Bar food good and reasonably priced but the bar is very quiet if in search of a lively atmosphere.

Beautiful Location - Great Value for Money.
Stayed in the Carlton, Kinsale for one night with my husband on the 26th February. We had a very relaxing stay, the staff were very helpful, the food good and the location/scenery fantastic. Would recommend to anyone who would like a relaxing break.

Very impressed!
I was very impressed by the hotel, the location is amazing and every thing was comfortable, the food was great and the price I got for a 1 night deal was excellent. The bar missed out on the fabulous ... views but I didn't actually spend time there, I ate in the restaurant which was excellent. My only fault with the room was a safe wasn't provided, I could have requested one I'm sure but I was surprised it wasn't provided as standard. ---

Great fun weekend
The staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. One of the waiters in the restaurant was very witty and chatty. The holiday homes were EXCELLENT and very tasteful. The only fault was the bar was small for the size of the hotel however the music and atmosphere on the night could not be faulted. We had a ball! I will definitely take the family back again!

Heaven in a haven with great views......
Having arrived a little hassled and late for my treatment, the spa were just ringing reception as I checked in. Reception were very professional in allowing me to drop everything and go straight to my ... treatment which was excellent. Everyone should experience a treatment at the start of their stay. It set the overnight stay off to a great start for me. Food was excellent and I really like the idea of a complimentary bus to Kinsale. Only wish I had another night there to experience it. My only complaint was France beat Ireland in the rugby which I watched from my bedroom (out of your control I know). Flat screen tv's would look better in the rooms, otherwise, keep doing what you're doing cause you do it well. ---

Excellent Trip
Myself and my boyfriend took our second trip here for valentines after falling in love with the hotel on our first stay. We had a gorgeous view of the lakes and mountains from our room. We had our ... evening meal in the restaurant and the food was fab! The service is great too!! We also had a massage in the C spa which was just wonderful! I would recommend it to anyone! The pool, sauna, steam room, are just so well kept! ---

Spur of the moment getaway!
My boyfriend and I decided one Tuesday to take the next day off work and college for a bit of catch up time on the Wednesday! Spur of the moment things can be 50:50 but this one definitely worked out for ... us!! The offer we got was unbelievable and we have informed almost everyone we know about it!! We stayed in Kinsale and the surrounding areas were beautiful, we even suggested it to my boyfriend's sister who got engaged at Christmas to have her wedding reception there! Our meal in the hotel restaurant was fabulous followed by many drinks at the bar! The bar man was so friendly and helpful, he spent the night trying to make a cocktail to suit my tastes and had a brilliant laugh with him! The next morning we had breakfast, followed buy one of the most powerful showers iv ever had in my life! Had a stroll around the grounds, took some photos and off home to reality! It was a thoroughly enjoyable stay! ---
