We were 2 couples and had booked a long time before for 2 nights. The allocated rooms were at the front of the street and were adjacent, and shared a common and private lounge that was terrific and very convenient. The facilities were clean, however housekeeping does not "make up" the room during the stay other than change towels. Didn't...

We recommend this - had an excellent dinner - good music in the pub - delicious breakfast - comfortable room - terrific location in a charming town. We stayed two nights - stay longer if you can. Also had a great meal at nearby Horseshoe inn.

The bath smells very bad. The room was not very warm. The room and the bed was big and the breakfast was good. The employees are nice and friendly. The B&B is situated in the city center. In the end it was okay but not more.

Cycle the Ring of Beara. Don't miss Healy Pass and Caha Pass. Food is great in Kenmare. Packies. No 35. The Guinness is great in Crowleys, o'Donnabhns, Foleys. Lovely pub grub in The Wander Inn. Good tunes in the last drop

Everything you could ask for: friendly staff, clean rooms, great breakfast, and there's a pub downstairs to have a pint. We didn't have a chance to try the food but it definitely smelled good. I would definitely stay here again if I make it back to Kenmare.

The room was extremely cold. There was no one to speak to about this other than the bartender. We eventually got extra blankets out of the empty rooms nearby. We asked 3 times if the heat could be turned on and were told it was on a timer....we learned that when the heat went off in the bathroom.

We really liked this stay. It was an old historic building with all of the newest amenities. It was above a pub and you park in the back of the facility, which could make you a little nervous, but the rooms were clean, nicely furnished, comfortable. The people were extremely accommodating and friendly. The breakfast was wonderful. Highly recommend for...

3 nights KeNmare were planned to enable our tour of the Wild Atlantic Way, or at least part of it. We wanted some variety, and were delighted with our room which was remarkably quiet. Staff were without exception, extremely pleasant, relaxed and helpful, and we dined twice on gastrupub fare. This was excellent, especially the beef and Guinness stew. Main...
