Perryville House, Kinsale

Perryville House

The 200-year-old Perryville House, located overlooking the bay on the edge of vibrant Kinsale, continues to feel like a home rather than a hotel. This characterful 22 room, family-run guesthouse has a welcoming, casual ambience. There are two formal yet snug lounges adorned with large portraits, patterned curtains, vibrant floor rugs and wooden fireplaces.

The tastefully decorated guest rooms are all individually furnished with a blend of traditional elements and modern amenities.

The owners’ passion and commitment to restoring Perryville House to its former old-world glory is evident in everything they do. They take pride in producing their own honey and serving a delicious breakfast buffet of homemade delicacies freshly made with locally sourced ingredients.
