Fodor's Expert Review Friar's Lodge

Friar's St., Kinsale, Co. Cork, Ireland Fodor's Choice

A large Georgian town house has been tastefully converted into this cheerful guesthouse, with an array of amenities that would do a hotel proud. The quiet residential location is only a short walk from the town center and adjacent to the town's three churches, the bells of which merrily ring the hours. Guest rooms are large, pleasantly decorated in Georgian style, with cheerful spreads and drapes, wing chairs, and good-size bathrooms. The warm welcome and friendly touring advice from owner-manager Maureen Tierney and her team, good parking in a town where spaces can be hard to find, and excellent value make this a popular spot with regular visitors, many of whom are golfers.
