Poor1.0 / 5
Dirty and poor service
At first we thought the staff was rude but later determined that they were not trained. The hotel is in a beautiful setting but lacks good service. It was brisk and the outside heaters did not work. The chairs in the restaurant and room had caked on food on them. It was impossible to get a drink without going to the bar and the bar was empty.

Best hotel experience of my life
5/5 stars!! I am tempted to give this hotel a 1 star rating instead of 5 stars. -My spouse and I stayed at the MacDonald on our 3rd night in Ireland, and it ruined us for hotels for possibly the rest of our lives. It exceeded our expectations so much, the room was so beautiful, and the view so amazing, that I fear we will never be satisfied with another hotel again. For the the next two weeks every new 4 or 5 star hotel we checked into on our roadtrip got the same reaction from us- "It's nice... but not the MacDonald." The wall facing the bay was made entirely of windows, and when you first open your eyes in the morning you are overwhelmed with the beautiful view of the ocean and Irish countryside. We could easily fly back to Ireland just to spend a week in this one location! Beautiful hotel, lovely town, amazing experience.

Beautiful Hideaway Grand Views Upscale
This place is beautiful. Please keep in mind that it is off the main road and about a 15 minute drive to Kinsale as well as about a 20 minute drive to Cork. Nicr accommodations, a place to rest, revive and enjoy your beautiful surroundings between excursions into Kinsale (not to be missed) and Cork (amazing shopping, pubs & the huge, open market)& other travels about Ireland. you can drive back to this green, beautiful hideaway overlooking the inlet of oyster bay, enjoy your drinks, good food if you wish, and large comfy room. This is a hotel spa, with free parking and wonderful staff. A shout out to wonderful Lynn from the bar, who went out of her way to ask about our day and adventures. Her kindness and attentiveness will not be forgotten. staff is friendly, bar food good. Do not miss enjoying local sea food in this region or if they have it for the day in the bar. Enjoy the grounds and beautiful walking trails of this property. Great shower and bathtub! The pool and fitness center downstairs is nice. Bring a swim cap! Otherwise you will be charged 3 euros. Remember that this is not in town. But is close to Kinsale, Charles Fort, but for relaxation. Lovely!

Great hotel overall!
Great experience! Beautiful location and the territory of the hotel. Lovely walk to the harbor. You will love your harbour view room. If you choose to stay at the garden view room you'll have a lovely fountain and beautiful garden just in front of your window. Restaurant and bar are great. Friendly and helpful staff.
