"Favorite hotel we stayed at in 10 days!"
This is a gem of a beautiful hotel in a charming town. Kinsale has everything you want in a small fishing town in Ireland--beauty, charm, friendly people and gorgeous views. Perryville is THE place to stay. Walking distance to all restaurants, shops, pubs, and the views of the harbour and town are perfect from Perryville House.
The breakfast was the best with Andrew's bees' honey, the scones were the flakiest and most delicious we had during our vacation. I loved the charm of the breakfast room. My two teenagers loved the portions, the ability to get exactly what they wanted--one of them is dairy-free. My husband liked that we were all happy for once :)
The rooms were spotless and really decorated well. I am an interior designer, so I am a bit critical of rooms that are too chintzy/overdone, but all areas of the hotel struck the right balance between charming and yet fresh, clean, luxurious. The little bar room was a nice relaxing area where you can have a drink, sit for a bit before heading out, browse menus for dinner.
While were were there I noticed a whole group of people who were getting ready to golf and I had a bit of jealousy that we had not brought our clubs to golf the Old Head of Kinsale which I hear is a terrific course. But we were not there for Couple's Golf, just a family trip! Now I have a reason to come back and stay at Perryville again (with golf clubs!).
