My wife and I enjoyed our two nights there. Central location, nice pub, two nights of really great music too. Room was clean and neat. Good value. We were on the third floor (or second floor depending on what you call the ground floor) and it was quiet - even with the pub below. We would stay there again. The... More

The room was spacious but cold. Heaters were off and no way to control them. The bathroom fan stayed on long after the light was switched off which was LOUD and annoying. Staff was ok. The pub was lively and had decent food...but somehow felt a little staged for the tourists.

What a great place! The room was spacious and quit. We made a short notice reservation and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The B&B is right in the heart of the town and within walking distance of other nice Pubs.

We stayed for one night in a double ensuite room. I had visited the bar a couple of weeks previously when walking the Kerry Way and had enjoyed it so thought this would be a good accommodation option on the subsequent visit. The room was reasonably spacious and comfortable though not as comfortably furnished as many B&Bs at a similar... More

The town of Kenmare is adorable and O'Donnabhain's epitomizes the spirit of Kerry. Tucked right in the center of town the B&B couldn't be more accessible. My room was in the back and very quiet with comfortable beds. Other family members were right up front on the street side and with all the pubs hosting live bands it was a... More

Stayed here at end of September. Kenmare is great location for visiting Ring of Kerry and Ring of Beara as well as Killarney National Park. Comfortable rooms and good breakfast. Even though on top of pub, rooms were quiet except for neighbor's barking dog (open windows).

Loved the town, the location, the apartment, the food, .... It was all a good experience. Kenmare was a perfect location for exploring both peninsulas and was also a small enough town that you could feel comfortable walking and yet have a variety of restaurants, etc.

O'donnabhains was easy to spot on the main street of town. The room was large with 3 beds- one double and two twins. We were a couple so we had lots of room to put our suitcases. The young ladies serving breakfast were lovely and friendly and the breakfast was good. The bar had a good vibe. Though the B&B... More

Our room here was very spacious and had recently been updated. The bathroom was huge with modern fixtures (although there weren't any shelves or places to store toiletries). There were coffee and tea setups available to be taken to your room in the breakfast room. Even though our room was just above the pub, the noise level was reasonable. Our... More

Very central, parking difficult to find but lovely clean rooms. Breakfast excellent and made to order which we loved, lovely staff couldn't be more helpful. Nice bar down stairs but we didn't go there as we didn't have much time.
