Fodor's Review

A restaurant, bar, and small hotel occupy this attractive, yellow-stucco, blue-trim town house, with its landmark wall clock and welcoming flags. It's a popular spot for casual dining, and you can sit near the open fire, outside on the patio, in a booth in the buzzing bistro section, or at a quieter table in Aperitif Wine and Tapas Bar. The bistro menu is a well-judged mix of old favorites, includeing Caesar salad, sirloin steak, Thai red curry of vegetables with fragrant rice, and beer-battered fish-and-chips, while Aperitif serves a medley of tapas-style small plates. The bar has live music nightly from May through September, and on Saturday year-round. This is a good place to meet the locals, who can be hard to find in cosmopolitan Kinsale, and it's a fun place to stay, if you don't mind smallish rooms and the possibility of late-night noise.
