Location is great but property is old and need of work. No tea and coffee facilities, no TV, no guest lounge, wallpaper peeling from roof and walls, however beds clean and comfortable. There are a lot of options in this town so look further.

While it is awfully tempting to give this lovely little b & b a higher rating based on it's outside appearance or the lovely owner's friendliness, our actual experience just won't allow it. We came into Kenmare without accommodation and after surprising the owner by ringing her doorbell and asking if she had a room she showed us to room...

We happened upon this B&B and found Maura to be a lovely and accommodating host. She cooked a special vegetarian meal for us, brewed hot water for us late at night, and couldn't have been sweeter. The beds were comfy, & the house was quiet and quaint. We thoroughly enjoyed her company and humor. If you are looking for an...

Very nice B&B. Great value for money. We stayed for 2 nights in a large ensuite room and got a great price. It's right in the center of the town, close to pubs, restaurants, etc. Maura is really really nice and very welcoming. Having met Maura the personal remarks about her from some other guests below make me sad, she's...

This nice cottage and the lady that owns it reminded us of old fairy tales :) Location is great (near city center but quite enough), place itself is very nice, clean and authentic, the breakfast is really good as well. Would definitely recommend it to anyone :)

We stumbled on the town of Kenmare on our travels in Ireland. We knocked on the door to see if there was a room and Maura, the owner, was the sweetest woman. She was so friendly and accommodating and cooked a full Irish breakfast, and it was delicious. We will go back again to visit her! The room was clean...

The lady who cares for the b and b was lovely and very helpful. The rooms are very b and b style (old and beautiful). We had a nice and cozy stay. It is also a beautiful rock on the outside of the b and b.

Well what can I say. A lovely lady owns this house, which apparently used to be a Nunnery .. but no way does it have the Clover Leaf B&B approval as is lodged between the bricks outside. There was no TV in the room, and no tea/coffee making facilities. The whole place needs a good hoover, a mattress was in...
