We were fortunate to be directed to Mrs O Shea by the information in town. We arrived early and were allowed to leave our luggage. Although busy we were served coffee and cake and a lovely welcome. The ensuite was clean and comfy with huge windows some of which opened which was a big plus in the warm weather,although as... More

I had been trying to find a nice b & b for a small break away and through the jigs and the reels we found this gem. We were greeted with tea and biscuits which is the kind of personal touch that is lost in hotels and instantly makes you feel right at home. We were given great advice on... More

My mom, sister, and I stayed one night at O'Shea's in Kenmare last week, and ideally would have booked more time there. We were greeted with tea and chocolates, and sent away in the morning with a full Irish breakfast. The location was perfect, as it was on our route through the Ring of Kerry. It's a walkable distance from... More

We stayed with the O'Shea family for three nights in June with our two children and mother-in-law. It is very conveniently located just outside Kenmare on the Ring of Kerry and provided a great base for touring the Beara Peninsula and Killarney National Park. We stayed in the family room with our children which was very spacious and comfortable. The... More

Lovely B&B with scenic views. The owner was very friendly and very helpful pointing out the local points of interest. The breakfast was great and lasted us for most of the day. The accommodations were also very clean.

O'Shea's Ceol Na Habhann is the best B&B we stayed in while traveling Ireland. The B&B we stayed in the night before arriving at O'Shea's was a big disappointment so we were a little leary. That went away as soon as we were greeted by Therese and quickly served tea and scones on lovely china. Therese's scones and homemade jams... More

As part of a driving tour of rural Ireland, the Ceol Na Habhann was a grand experience. The freshly baked scones win the "Best of Ireland" award and the welcoming attitude of the hostess was memorable. It's a bit of a walk down the hill to town, but that's a good way to walk off the obligatory Guinness sampling in... More

I just love Kenmare and on a recent trip with my fiancé and mother, we decided to make a week end of it and stay over. We booked in with Therese who was warm and welcoming. We stayed in rooms 2 and 3, which were both newly and tastefully refurbished. The rooms were directly across the hallway from each other... More

I loved Kenmare! Such a beautiful, quaint town. And so colorful! But Mrs O'Shea was so gracious and offered us tea/coffee upon our arrival. I love Irish tea! Breakfast was fantastic! My husband had the full Irish while I had beans on toast and the scones!! My favorite thing : ) It's true it's not a far walk into town... More
