We had a lovely stay. The room had everything we required as well as a little balcony to admire the view. John was a very pleasant host. Breakfast was beautiful; a delicious fruit salad and smoked salmon with scrambled eggs set me up for sightseeing in this beautiful area. We would be happy to stay again if we were in the area.

John was so helpful with giving us directions to different areas to visit. He served a great breakfast and made us feel very welcome. The grounds were beautiful with nice views of the river and we were always comfortable.

John is such a wonderful host for the Rocklands house. The house (and rooms) have a wonderful view of the Kinsale area and overlooking the River Bandon. The breakfast was delicious and the stories John shared were a wonderful bonus, as well. We cannot recommend it highly enough!

John was a perfect host who made sure our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. He took the time to show us around Kinsale town, and made excellent recommendations for dinner. The breakfast was excellent, especially the salmon which was the best we have had anywhere! It was our first time in Ireland, and we would definitely stay at Rocklands.
