Our History

Actons of Kinsale is the oldest hotel in Kinsale celebrating over 67 years in the hospitality industry.

The hotel was the original home of the Acton family who had settled in Kinsale in 1860 and soon developed a number of businesses in the town. In subsequent years the family bought the adjoining buildings in which Sidney Acton opened a family hotel in 1946.

In 1962 Trusthouse Forte purchased and developed a leisure complex in 1986,they added the conference centre accommodating up to 300 delegates in 1988.

The hotel was subsequently bought and managed by the Stafford Group in 1995 who then sold it to a local family in 2007.
