5 Star Irish Tourist Board approved bed and breakfast & Self-Catering Apartments
for the discerning guest in the heart of Kinsale

The Old Presbytery has long been established as one of the premium providers of accommodation in Kinsale and has been run by the McEvoy family for over 20 years. The original Georgian house dates back to 1750 and this historic house has been elegantly restored, with each room having its individual personality. Enjoy free private parking, free wifi, superb breakfasts, stylish unique rooms and great personal service in an excellent location. 

The self-catering apartments are located in the newer annexe and are a popular choice for travellers seeking a "home from home", a more laid-back experience and perhaps a longer stay.   They offer space and privacy, free parking and WiFi in this great town centre location.

Kinsale is a very picturesque town, which is steeped in history and has much to offer.   Enjoy wonderful walks, water sports, golf and many other activities.  Explore the many artisan shops, galleries and historical sites that Kinsale has to offer before dining in one of its many renowned restaurants.

Your hosts, Philip and Noreen, are always on hand to offer advice and suggestions.

We strive to reach the highest standards in every area and we look forward to meeting you and making your stay special
