We thought the room was ok. We thought the breakfast was wonderful, it was the most creative we found in any B&B in Ireland. We were annoyed the WiFi did not work in the room or the lobby. It was really the only place we've encountered that wasn't set up properly. The location was great, right on the main street.

We thought the rooms were okay and were annoyed there was no Wi-Fi in the rooms or lobby but the staff (owner especially) were really nice and the breakfast that was included in the price was the best we had in Ireland. They really make an effort to make it great.

Kenmare is a great spot to call home for driving the Ring of Kerry and visiting the National Park. Very clean room, off street parking (could pose a challenge if you drive anything larger than the tiny little rental that we had), can easily walk the whole town from here. Great breakfast options with fresh fruit and granola at the...

We stayed at this very lovely little hotel for nine nights and enjoyed the best service, the nicest room, the most extraordinary breakfast ever. Mary, the lady of the house, helped us with good advice what to do, which places to visit, with renting a car, getting on the internet on her own computer when ours didn't work and using...

Had a great night as part of a touring holiday and this hotel stood out from the others as a great location, with a welcoming atmosphere, helpful staff and top service - if I go back to Kenmare I won't be looking anywhere else!

A fantastic hotel for accommodation, food and fantastic friendly service. The small frontage hides the fact that the rooms are very large and beautifully decorated. Only a few rooms (8-12) so don't miss out. Great bar service, even if you're a group of smelly cyclists arriving a couple of hours early after the feats of taking in the Gap of...

This B&B is in Kenmare on a street lined with lovely shops, pubs, and restaurants. The rooms are bright, clean, nicely decorated. They have free wifi you just need to ask for the password. It didn't work in my room but there is a nice seating area where it worked and it also works in the restaurant below. The bathrooms...

Kenmare is a gorgeous village - a must for anyone travelling around Ireland! We stayed for 1 night and had an amazing time, the pub opposite (which was recommended by the hotel) had live local music and a lovely fire to warm us up!
