Virginia's Guesthouse Kenmare
Ranked #23 of 61 Kenmare B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 November 2016 via mobile

Stayed here for two nights. Good location in the town, lovely restaurant underneath for breakfast. However, paintwork, curtains and windows in room grubby. More akin to a hostel than a guest house.
Most likely wont be back.

Stayed: October 2016, travelled as a couple

Neil your host is an amazing guy. His hospitality is way beyond the level you normally find. Such a helpful gentleman and he runs a guesthouse that is perfectly located on the Main Street in Kenmare. Rooms were clean and well kept. Breakfast downstairs at Mick and Jimmy's is awesome and the dinner at The Mews in the alley next door was incredible. Throw in fantastic music in the pubs and fun locals and Kenmare is a cool spot.

Returned, in 2016 to Virginias after fabulous stay 2 days in 2014. Used to be family run (Noreen and Neil) B&B but now just a guesthouse with two floors of upstairs rooms. Noreen works in travel business and is no longer involved, but Neil is just as helpful as before. Location is superb as choice of good restaurants, pubs, and music venues just on or across this main street. Free public parking lot is available a few blocks away, across from church. Neil works in morning check out, but check in with him is after 3:30 pm. New outsourced web booking requires small charge. Many stairs.

Room Tip: Room size varies. Select larger room.

This is a great guesthouse on one of the main streets of Kenmare's village centre but on a quiet end. This facilities in the rooms are fabulous and the rooms are spacious with a heating rack on the bathroom which is great for drying clothes in the rainy weather. The owner is extremely helpful and the guesthouse has a lovely common room/breakfast room which is a cosy place to curl up with a coffee and book. Kenmare itself is a beautiful village with amazing choice of dining and cafes.

Neil couldn't have been more helpful. I stayed with a friend to do the rok cycle and we booked a double bed by accident. We arrived too late on first night for anything to be done. While we were cycling the following day Neil.had all of our stuff moved to a new room so that we'd have our own beds after the cycle. I also forgot my hair dryer when checking out and he had no problem posting it forward to me. Also, the shower was amazing!! Great stay :)
