Stayed here just one night. Location is great only 5-6 min walk to downtown area. Room was spacious and breakfast was great. My only complaint was the bathroom. It was a handicap bathroom so not sure if this was standard in every room. Not a big deal however the toilet seat was raised almost for someone with a recent hip...

Kenmare is a lovely town, the perfect location for visiting the Ring of Kerry. The room, staff and breakfast were excellent! It is a nice quiet location, with a short walk into town. Would come back again! The staff were friendly and very accommodating.

Rosemary, the lady of the house was a pleasure to deal with. Lovely large rooms, breakfast was delicious. Great B and B to accommodate a large group, plenty of rooms. Very close to the village so nice to be able to leave the car at the lodge and walk into town for a drink and not worry about taxi's.

Stayed just after Xmas 2015. We were a big boisterous group and we were very nicely looked after. We changed our plans a few times, and that was accommodated very graciously. We were also given lovely, helpful advice about the area by our host. A pleasure all around.

My room was about 50 degrees. I tried to get management to address the arctic temperature in my room 3 times to no avail. I had to wear my down vest and down jacket at all times. Slept in all my jackets plus thermal shirt and hat. Absolutely awful. Like camping. The common rooms of the B&B were also cold...
