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...

Friendly, attentive staff. Great location. Quiet. Clean. Huge rooms. Big, comfortable beds. Plenty of parking. Fresh, tasty breakfast. I really can't fault this place. And now I have to write these extra words to fulfill the 200 characters.... when I've already said it all.

Stayed for 2 nights whilst in kenmare. In terms of B&Bs this was definitely of a much higher class. Rooms are fairly spacious, clean and each in their own style. Staff were all friendly, chatty & helpful. My only complaint would be ghost the room we stopped in (Heather) was very very dark due to the dark floral wallpaper, meaning...

This B & B was incredible beautiful with period furniture, not only in the living room space but in each room as well. The rooms were named after flowers and they were all very large and comfortable. the bed was so comfortable in my room and it was easy to use the electric plugs. the owner definitely thought of convenience...

Kenmare, in general, for a first time traveler was quite the surprise. This BnB is right across the street from a golf course (if that's your thing) and really has no faults. The rooms are spacious and clean, the bathrooms fitted for comfort, and the staff is lovely. Rosemary (I believe) is a delightful hostess (in addition to the rest...

First time visit to Ireland and the County Kerry. We had a very nice stay, and excellent breakfast. There were only minor issues, like lights that didn't work and the wifi was out, but overall the staff was very very courteous and helpful. Rosemary gave us great tips on where to visit and what to do. Rooms were spacious and...
