This B&B is lovely and had all we needed for the three nights we stayed, including a "delightful owner" who was knowledgable, helpful, charming, funny and, above-all, friendly. The beds were very comfortable and the pillows were good (our two most important criteria). Shampoo and shower gel were provided in a really nice en suite bathroom. There was a hair...

The Driftwood has to be one of the most outstanding B&Bs in Ireland. It is spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. Peter and Mignonne made us feel extremely welcome and offered wonderful advice about touring the area. Their breakfasts were superb. Although our 16 year old daughter is not easy to please, she raved about her room and the B&B, protesting...

A really wonderful B&B: clean, luminous, tastefully decorated. The owners (Peter and Mignone) are really kind people and the different options for breakfast are delicious. If you go to Kenmare, this is your place.
