Café & Terrace

Perfectly situated on the ground floor of the Townhouse is our Café & Terrace overlooking the bustling centre of Kinsale town and the harbour. Start your day in the right way with our delicious breakfast where we serve up a delightful mix of savoury and sweet options. 

Our brunch/lunch menu is extensive and exemplifies the talent and precision of our chefs and kitchens which use only seasonal and fresh ingredients sourced from local suppliers! We offer gluten-free and healthy options that don’t compromise on flavour. 

The cafe has become an institution for coffee lovers and locals who come to enjoy the relaxed and homely atmosphere. We source exceptionally high-quality single roast beans from the finest Brazilian and Mexican arabicas. Our blend has a creamy rich body and exhibits flavours of milk, chocolate, cherry and hazelnut. Pair one of our smooth coffees with a pastry, croissant, or cake, all lovingly made in-house. 

Being environmentally aware is central to our business model and we offer compostable cups for our takeaway service in order to offset some of our carbon footprint.

Our Story

Our Story

Our reputation for excellent, friendly, personal service and meticulous attention to detail will ensure your visit to The Old Bank Townhouse Kinsale is a special one.


Until the late 18th century the property sat on the edge of a waterway, used by sailing ships when they berthed in the quays. Steeped in history, the Old Bank Townhouse was originally the Munster & Leinster Bank. The heritage of the building dates back to the 1700s and preserves many of the original features with a beautiful Georgian facade, impressive high ceilings, sash windows, and stone fireplaces. 


The Townhouse is a proud winner of the Georgina Campbell ‘Guest House of the Year' and a member of the Historic Hotels of Europe. The property has also been recommended by food and hospitality critics Lucinda O'Sullivan and Georgina Campbell and featured in McKenna's Guide. 


The Old Bank Townhouse is part of the Blue Haven Collection, providing boutique luxury accommodation in the centre of Kinsale.
