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.
