We cannot say enough good things about Sea Shore Farm Guesthouse and our wonderful hosts, Mary Patricia and Owen. This was by far our favorite stay in the many B&Bs and hotels we used during our two-week Ireland trip from Dublin and around the Southern half of Ireland to Galway. We were in room #3, a corner room with windows... More

This place has so much charm. The location is excellent, just on the edge of town with the possibility of a country road walk or drive in. The breakfast room is lovely with a pretty view of the yard reaching out into the bay and the hosts are totally familiar with the geography and history of this fabulous area. The... More

The weather was poor during our visit which meant the views from the room were not quite as spectacular as they could have been. The hosts were welcoming and the rooms very spacious and comfortable. In comparison to other places we stayed we found this to be on the expensive side for the standard of accommodation.

We stayed two nights but regretted not staying at least four or five. There is much to do and see nearby and the lovely, gracious hosts, Owen and Mary Patricia O'Sullivan, will advise you but also provide a wealth of maps and guides. We enjoyed an outing to the village of Glengarriff and the nearby Garinish Island, with an historic... More

What luck to have booked this guest house for 2 nights. The room was spacious and spotless, and the views were stunning. Patricia and Owen were gracious hosts, with great suggestions without being overbearing. The morning breakfasts were high quality and filling. Kenmare is the perfect location for touring, and it was so restful to escape the bustle of tourism... More

What a little gem, lovely rooms, breakfast was delicious and the hosts extremely warm, friendly and helpful, and to that a fabulous view the water to the mountains. If we are in the area again would definitely want to stay here again.

This B&B is in a lovely location overlooking water. However, it is located out of town down a very narrow road. The room we had was very spacious and comfortable. A plentiful breakfast buffet. We only spent one night here but our hosts Owen and Patricia were very hospitable. Be forewarned, rooms are located on 2nd floor (no elevator).

Beautiful views from this lovely B&B with great hosts Owen and Patricia. Enjoyed watching the cows in the field and the bay in the distance. The walk to town was about 20 minutes along a narrow country road but was very dark at night... totally doable during the day however.. The room was spacious with a very large modern bathroom...
