Stayed one night to attend a family funeral. Staff were nothing less than helpful and accommodating in every way, the room was lovely, peaceful and clean. Breakfast was delicious. I'd highly recommend this accommodation.

WHAT CAN BE BETTER THAN THAT as we tour Ireland with our family! The staff was friendly and helpful! I had to email hotel directly because I couldn't seem to reserve 3 rooms online. Jer promptly emailed me back. Thanks! The eight of us had 3 rooms. We all had tasty meals in the Pub including the kids. As the... More

This guesthouse deserves 5 stars. It is located right on the main street in Kenmare where all the pubs, shopping and restaurants are located. The rooms are very nice. Bigger than I expected and very clean. If you are looking for a nice place to stay and a convenient location you need to book your holiday at O'Donnabhain's.

Bnb with gastro pub underneath. It's not really cosy but it works it's way as a pub. Rooms are not really clean, no lookout at the windows, really old and damaged windows and noisy because of the aircon of the kitchen, beds are just standard, breakfast is not really a high standard. Pub & meals are ok but really little... More

Overpriced for the actual quality of the room. Would look elsewhere next time. Parking is on the street. Was expecting more based on the reviews I read but it was only one night. Clean for sure, but super-dated.

We loved our stay at O'Donnabhain's Guesthouse. It is situated right in the heart of Kenmare so you can walk out the door and start your shopping. Kenmare is a lovely town and there are many shopping and dining opportunities. O'Donnabhain's B&B has beautifully appointed rooms with all the amenities. Our group had 3 rooms and all were large and... More

My husband and myself stayed in O'Donnabhain's B/B and would have no hesitation in recommending it. The room was very comfortable, spotless and located in a very quiet part of the premises. The lady serving breakfast was so friendly and welcoming and looked after everyone so well. Reasonably priced too!

We spent 2 nights here. The room was decent but not particularly nice. The hallway smelled vaguely of mildew. We ate dinner in the attached pub on the first night, neither my wife or I liked our meals at all. Because of that, we decided to skip the breakfasts. But the price was low and the service reflected that.

Lovely comfortable room. Great breakfast. Well placed in the centre of town. The main bar also serves excellent food at reasonable prices. And music too. An all round relaxing, informal place to stay.

We stayed one night in Kenmare and enjoyed our stay at O'Donnabhain's. It is a great value. We got a room over the bar and it was quiet and clean. It is right in the downtown area. It is a great location and the parking was easy. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are in Kenmare and need... More
