This purpose-built B&B has four rooms. Quietly overlooking the inlet, comfortable and cozy. This is a perfect spot for a restful night. A nice choice for breakfast. We would stop here again. Handy to downtown Kenmare.

This past June, my wife and I spent two weeks in Ireland. We had only one night in Kenmare and hope to return in the future, in which case we would certainly try to book a few more nights at this lovely spot.

It was our 5th time in this B&B and as every year, we had lovely nights thanks to Noreen's hospitality. Nice bedroom and breakfast, very pleasant place and closed to Kenmare downtown, fine to visit Beara peninsula but also Muckross house, Ring of Kerry, Dingle,.... Noreen recommended good walks. We are looking forward to go again to this B&B and... More

Our 4 nights at Watersedge gave us an excellent introduction to Ireland and Irish hospitality. Our large room was upstairs with a beautiful view and a very comfy bed. Great after a day's walking in this lovely area. The day begins with Noreen's super breakfast which offers a range of choices and is cooked to order. Tea and coffee are... More

We stayed here two nights, and really enjoyed ourselves. The hostess was lovely, very helpful with places to go and restaurants. Delicious breakfasts and a nice lounge with a view of the beautiful bay. Drove all around the peninsula, this was a perfect base for seeing the whole area in 2 days, we liked it better than Ring of Kerry.... More

We had lost our directions, so had a bit of trouble finding it, as we thought it would be just on the river. It's near the river, but up through a neighborhood. Once you follow... More
