“Great base for sightseeing Kilarney, Ring of Kerry, Beara Peninsula”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2009

Kenmare is a small, easy-to-navigate town close to the Ring of Kerry, the Beara Peninsula, and Kilarney National Park (and Muckross House). Stay here and avoid the touristy atmosphere and crowds of Kilarney town. We especially enjoyed the Water's Edge B&B just outside Kenmare. The hostess is delightful and the facilities bright, cheery, clean, and comfortable. Did I mention reasonably priced? Especially nice here is the breakfast - with healthier options than most we found. Perched along the water, but in the trees, it's a beautiful, quiet location. We found a super bakery in Kenmare, for picking up picnic lunch items. The business district in Kenmare is small and convenient, and without the difficult parking found in many towns in Ireland.

Waters Edge is a nice B&B. Being purpose-built, there is plenty of room for guests and hosts. Our room was very spacious, with a comfortable ensuite; we also had a nice view of the bay from it, which was lovely. The service was nice and friendly, just like in most B&Bs around this part of Ireland. Breakfast was -again- good but nothing above what can be expected for this kind of accommodation. Tea and coffee were available to guests throughout the day, and so a selection of books and dvds. The location is very nice: tucked away on top of the Mucksna hill, the house has great views. It is not the most straightforward place to walk to in the dark, however. So if you are staying there in the Autumn/winter, i would recommend driving or calling a taxi into kenmare town, as the lane gets very dark. The B&B is about 2 km outside of Kenmare town. Overall, a good option.

The little details were everywhere at the Watersedge in Kenmare. The rooms and public areas are very nicely decorated. The B&B is at the end of a lane. The B&B is not in town but it's very close. An easy 3 minute drive or 10 minute walk. It's just a lovely location.
Noreen was a very gracious hostess who made us feel very welcome and took the time to answer our questions and give a great recommendation for dinner. Breakfast was wonderful with many choices.
Clean, great value, quiet and beautiful location. What else do you want?
