Rooms large and clean but the place has seen better days which shouldn't stop you staying here; keep reading. Lovely living room for chatting. Has pictures and other memorabilia from the area. Easy walk to downtown, but needs an outside light in the entrance. We walked from town after dark and would have missed the hotel save a car's lights...

My wife and I stayed here 22 years ago and were stunned. Still very good but competition has upped their game inIreland. Facility now a bit long in the tooth. Rosemarie and Annie were very gracious indeed. Breakfast set up with fine linens etc was superb. Location could not be better

Beautiful B&B in a great location...easy walk to the lovely small town center with great pubs. The bathroom was on the small side but very modern, clean and sparkling (stunning...marble ...I think). The included breakfast was delicious. Rosemarie, the gracious host/owner, is a lovely and very friendly woman. Parking was free, easy and very conveniently located. We would love to...

Really great place, very friendly. We stayed in the primrose room with our disabled son. Room was better than a lot of hotels I have stayed in. Our son is on a special diet and the staff were happy to accommodate this. Will definitely be back!

My partner and I hiked through the beautiful west coast of Ireland in July 2013. The first day we were there was typical Irish weather - cool and wet -- perfect for hiking. All the subsequent days we were treated to a humid heat wave where the temperatures were in the 30s C (90s F) -- thank you global climate...

We had a wonderful two night stay at The Lodge. It was decorated beautifully, the rooms and the sitting room. The breakfast was great and I highly recommend the omelet. It is very close to town and there are some great shops in Kenmare. It is an ideal base for visiting the Ring of Kerry and the Muckross House. This...

The Lodge is fairly new construction, so you have every modern convenience, but they successfully managed to provide a classic feel due to furnishings and decor. Breakfast was delicious, staff accomodating and the walk to town was perfect.

We spent the night here in a family room (queen and two single beds) with 2 adults and 2 teens. It is located just outside Kenmare and was very convenient place to hang before or in our case after doing ring of kerry. It is family run by lovely people who pay attention to every detail and show they care...
