    Spend a night in History


    From the moment I walked in the door, I could sense the history of the home. Sovereign house is a Queen Anne style residence built in 1706. James is absolutely the most charming of hosts.

    The bedrooms are over the top! I had a four poster canopied bed in my room that made me feel like a princess. The shower was deliciously pounding and plentifully hot.

    There is a game room upstairs where a short while was spent at the billiards table.

    Sovereign house truly is a feast for the eyes. It is filled with Jacobean style furnishings and artworks, original fireplaces and its secret garden.

    James took great care wth breakfast to make sure that nary a mushroom or any type of seafood accosted my plate.

    Unique Quality: A period stairway leads to a secret terraced garden

    Unique B&B


    The property was once home to two of Kinsale's most famous Sovereigns, Anthony Stallwell and William Newman who was Kinsale's longest serving Sovereign. Hence the name of the B&B.

    James the owner is very charming. He was out when we arrived but had left a note on the door that he was nearby at the Greyhound.

    Unique Quality: This wonderful Queen Anne house dating from 1706 oozes charm and character and must be visited to appreciate it's exquisite qualities. The superb Jacobean Hallway leads to Drawing Room, Kitchen/Breakfast Room, Dining Room, Reading Room and Study. A period stairway leads to a secret terraced garden at the first return of the stairs.

    Upstairs there is a full Games Room and 6 wonderful Bedrooms 5 of which have en-suite Victorian Bathrooms.

    James served one of the best breakfasts we had the entire trip - with gourmet cheeses and other goodies.

    Directions: Take the first turn to your right after the Blue ?Haven Hotel, pass Kinsale micro brewery on your left hand side, take the first turn to the left after the brewery. The house is located at the end of the street on the right hand side.
