It was a beautiful drive from Kinsale to Killarney today. It was sad to leave Kinsale...such a charming town, lovely marina and lots of boutique shops and restaurants. We drove south along the coastal road through Skibberdeen and then up to Bantry. We tried to find Coakley's Pub but it has turned into a Decor Shop! Bantry is a resort town with …
... out in the garden when we arrived, and it was hard to believe that he was 100 years old. He was funny, knowledgeable and well spoken on so many topics.
He also had such a zest for life. He is the president of the local fishing club, still plays bridge and works his own ...
... Cork: a nice town but really just a city with no tourist appeal. Off to Kinsale, a town that IS a tourist town. Very cute old port city (well, used to be a port town). We walked through the town, stopped at St. Multose Church and Desmonds Castle which is hardly a castle as it is rather small and square and was once the prison among many other things. (Oh, yes, it once held American Revolutionary War Prisoners that were caught at sea). We ...
... all the Christmas lights,but as soon as I opened the camera, down it came again. The boys think if I leave it packed, we won't have rain again.
We decided to try out the Laurel restaurant. It had a nice old fashioned interior, with a warm fire. Our waitress was great, but it felt like a real local place, and no one else wanted to talk to us. Interesting phenomenon here is that there is no tipping. This is really hard to get ...
I got up and was feeling a little better. I was hungry, but I still didn't feel like eating anything! I decided to try some toast to get something in me. It just didn’t taste good.
I was awake and it was a good thing that I wasn’t sleeping today. This was the most scenic drive we had done so far. We could see the highest mountain in Ireland. The sites outside the window were impressive! It was a little foggy, ...

Comment: beautifully decorated!
Impossible to fault. The food, service, decor, furnishings all second to none. Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Liked it so much we stayed an extra night. Will definately return!
The exterior of the building is unassuming and not particularly impressive, but inside you find a lovely sitting room, beautiful art on all the walls, wonderfully appointed bedrooms, and the best breakfast in town. Warm, friendly owners too. We loved it.
Delightful in all respects
My wife and I based our decision to stay here on what other people had written in these reviews. I'm pleased to say we were'nt disappointed. I work for an airline and travel abroad several times a month staying in top quality hotels. In terms of value for money and outstanding service I have stayed in few better. The rooms were spotlessly clean, breakfast was delicious and nothing was too much trouble for the owners. I can thoroughly recommend it.
Charming family-run hotel
I chose to stay at this hotel, having read the reviews on this site. I booked the room using their easy to use website reservation system. This is, without doubt, the best privately-run small hotel I have ever stayed in. It has a very inviting family home atmosphere. The building is decorated with a wide range of antiques and family heirlooms. Our room was very spacious, with excellent facilities and a large, disabled-person-accessible bathroom. The staff were very friendly, polite and helpful. The hotel is located in a peaceful inner suburb. It would only take the average person around 15 - 20 minutes to walk into the town centre. Taxis are cheap and readily available.
Great Place, Nice People
Add our names to the list of folks who love this place. My wife and I stayed several nights in May 2004 and found Earls Court to be exceptional. Beautiful antiques (a museum quality piece of Killarney furniture is in the lounge), spotless and beautifully furnished rooms. Emer and all of the staff are kind and helpful. The breakfast is wonderful!
We were impressed from the first moment we arrived. We traveled via Kinsale and Blarney and arrived around 2 PM without having had lunch. We asked the owner for recommendations for a quick lunch spot and she offered to make us sandwiches within 10 minutes (only cost 4 Euro per sandwich). Also had wonderful tea and sweet breads. ELegant accomodations in a quiet area within a 10-15 minute walk to center of town, outstanding breakfast, best beds, Huge bathroom, warm and caring owners that were MOST helpful with any needs. We would definitely recommend this guesthouse and would stay there again and again.
I stayed at Earls Court last August (2002) and it was absolutely wonderful. The owner is very gracious and helpful. He welcomed us with tea and a snack when we arrived. The room was lovely, spotless, with beautiful furniture and a fabulous view of the mountains. The hotel is full of antiques. It's a small hotel with a B&B feel. The breakfast is traditionally Irish and delicious. Highly recommended.
Gracious & Convenient
Spent a night at Earls Court in May2003. It is immaculate, convenient to all shopping and restaurants (walking distance) and run by very lovely people. Don't miss the apple surprise pancakes. We will surely return!
Excellent B & B
Beautiful, small ( 11 rooms) quiet B & B just a few minutes walk from town center. Wonderful hospitality. Great Irish breakfast....all at reasonable price. Highly recommend.
