“Home away from home”
Reviewed 10 October 2011

We stayed a week and enjoyed our trip immensely. Great base of operations for the region. Our hosts were very welcoming and took care of our needs. Breakfasts were good and the tea was excellent (we need her brewing secret). Kenmare is a charming town and Annagry is a very nice B&B from which to explore this wonderful town and county. Listen to Danny and Fionnuala about things not to miss; they didn't lead us astray. We would stay again and hopefully will stay again.

We stayed here three nights and it was a great location and price. Our bed was very comfortable with great linens. The overall feel of the decorum reminded us a bit of a Nursing home turned into a B&B. Not exactly cozy in the public areas and dining room, but clean and efficient. Maybe it was just our experience, but the wife Fionnuala seemed "peopled", as in a little burned out on hosting and it felt like it was a business versus enjoyable for her. Helpful when you asked, but not what you would say friendly. Again, maybe just our impression. Danny however was who greeted us and was a good first impression. Hence we would rate it a 4 out of 5 for these reasons.

We stayed one night before driving around the Ring of Kerry. Our twin room and bath were small but very clean and comfortable. Our room faced the main street but it was quiet for sleeping. Parking was plentiful and easy. Downtown Kenmare was a short 10 minute walk from Annagry House, along a lovely footpath. We ate a delicious dinner at Davitts Restaurant (Kenmare) while listening to live Irish music. Breakfast at Annagry House delicious and plentiful. Half way around the Ring of Kerry I realized I left my cell phone behind. I called Fionnula and she graciously forwarded it on to our hotel in Dublin. It arrived on the promised day and in perfect condition. I am very very grateful! Fionnula was sooooo helpful - above and beyond!!! She sent the phone and trusted me to reimburse her.

We were traveling Ireland without a detailed agenda, so were booked B&Bs as we went along. While the Annagry B&B was full for the nights we were to stay, Danny and Fionnuala, made "the Cottage" (generally available by the week) available to us for a two night stay (at the B&B price). We were soooo fortunate.

It's not in town, but within an easy stroll (less than 10 mins). The cottage was very nice and the cozy with plenty of room to be together separately, when we wanted some alone time (these were days 4 and 5 on our 14 day Irish adventure). The breafast menu was varied and the meal was well prepared.

A computer for guests (in the breakfast dining area) to use came in handy.

When we asked Danny for suggestions as to how best enjoy a day on the Beara Peninsula, he suggested "a nice walk around the Gleninchaquin Park and provided us with a hand drawn map. It was a wonderful experience for this mid-50's couple. To get there we had to drive down the world's longest driveway (about 4 KMs)...a single lane road that required us to honk the horn around every turn (and someone backup and divert off the road when two cars met, which only happened once). And the walk, well the walk was really a mountain hike ... LOL. BUT THE SCENERY...THE SCENERY WAS PRICELESS. Views of the lakes, hills, the glacier carved valleys, sheep that traversed to the top of hills that mad one wonder as to WHY on earth would they do such a thing??? Danny was spot on; a great day on the Bera P.

We ate a dinner at the Coachman's Inn. And if Michael O'Brien is playing, be sure to get a late dinner reservation and stay for the show. It was a packed crowd; with many locals in attendance. He was the most soulful Irish muscian and singer that we heard on our two week adventure. It was truly an unexpected treat and a real pleasure.

Kenmare and Annagry is what we call a "do-over". And we will within the next few years.

This was our favorite B&B on our recent trip. Our room was spacious, clean, light and bright, quiet, with a gorgeous bathroom, double sinks and tub, great shower. The dining room is comfortable, and the breakfast perfect. Nice modern furnishings and artwork. Our hosts were helpful and available. Loved the lighted walking trail to town, and the easy parking at the B&B.
