We stayed here for 1 night during our travels thru Ireland and found this B&B to be very quiet and comfortable but it could use some TLC in terms of overall cleanliness. The host John is very welcoming, pleasant, and helpful. There is lots of free parking and the Wifi worked well in our room. Our room with ensuite was cozy and fully functional. Breakfast was varied, delicious and plentiful and served in a bright, comforting room. This B&B is about a 15-minute walk to the downtown which is very convenient but the return walk is primarily uphill so go prepared. Our stay here was very enjoyable and their friendly animals were the icing on the cake.

We enjoyed our stay very much. Our room was beautifully furnished with a lovely view. Breakfast was delicious with all choices you could wish for. Our host was very accommodating and had lots of information to tell about the surroundings and Ireland in general. We had a great stay here.

Rocklands House was so much better than the photos. Our room, was lovely with a view of the river and countryside. John was a very accommodating host, giving us a ride to town our first night, and suggesting several restaurants. Our choice was wonderful. We spent two days, and felt so at home. Breakfasts were perfect, made to order. The mile drive up the local road was narrow, but we made it fine.

Our host, John, was very gracious, accommodating and funny! He recommended places we should visit while in Kinsale and even gave us a lift into town our first day there. The room was immaculate, the view was spectacular, and the breakfast was outstanding! We wouldn't hesitate to stay at Rocklands House when in Kinsale in the future.
