Stayed in Foleys on Saturday and Sunday 20th and 21st May. The first words out of the gentlemans mouth when we arrived was €198 and he took the money up front and not even a welcome.The location of this guesthouse is right in the middle of great pubs like the Coachmans and the Wander Inn.

I stayed 2 nights at Foley's. My room was small, as was the shower, but fine for a lady travelling alone. Everything spotless. Every staff member I met was excellent at their job, & professional. I was unwell on my first morning, & a staff member came to find out if I wanted to come down for breakfast. I enjoyed...

On our recent family trip to Ireland, we stayed at Foley's guesthouse. Honestly, it was the best place we stayed at during our 10 day trip. All the people that work there are awesome, the gentleman at the front desk (who gave us terrific trips on where to go), Ryan the bartender and the gentleman who served our breakfast...everyone was...

The staff was very friendly, like all Irish people! I booked a twin room and got a room with 3 seperate beds. The room was so small there was no space between the beds and no room for bedside tables, no sockets near the beds to plug your mobile. The bathroom door stuck, almost impossible to close. The heating was...

We spent one night in Foley's, located right in the heart of Kenmare. Our room was comfortable and attractive. Our breakfast the next morning was tasty, and the guy cooking and serving it could not have been friendlier. The wifi signal was strong in our room, something I always appreciate. I would be delighted to stay here again.

We visited Kenmare at the start of the season (April) with a large (12 people overall, 6 kids) and demanding group of friends and family. For three days in a row, Foley's accommodated the - usually ravenous - group after a long day of hiking, seal watching, etc., meeting our peregrine requests around seating arrangements, pets, and so on. That...

What a wonderful surprise! The rooms were decorated in a modern vintage style, but with a lot of clean and crisp amenities. We also love windows and opening them, and our room had two. It was a great place to stop in.

We stayed for 3 nights whilst on a busy trip of business and pleasure. Room was comfortable and warm, ensuite bathroom was fine and we had all the facilities we needed. Breakfast was superb each day and we were asked each evening what time would suit us as we had to be away early each morning. We ate each evening...

We spent a week one of the Ard mullen holiday homes: a very comfortable house. Walking distance to Kenmare, childrens playground, pubs and shops and perfect starting point for trips on Iveragh and Beara! We had a friendly welcome and the house was clean. Some minor maintenance points were not taken care of (light bulbs, broken tile, blocked roof gutter),...
