Accommodations were okay. Would have like to have known we were staying so far out of town -- write-up referred to "a short walk" into town of Kenmare. Probably half-hour walk on road w/o sidewalks and barely room enough for the two-way traffic. Sam and Sheila were very nice and gave us a very good recommendation for touring Beara Penn... More

Fantastic room, for 3 of us, with beautiful single and enormous double bed. Sheila and Sam were Very friendly hosts. A little outside of town but drove us in to our restaurant, which was a lovely gesture. The breakfast was top class. Loved our visit.

My wife and I stayed at Forgefield house for four nights in May 2015. Sheila and Sam are very kind and helpful hosts with a lot of good advice about where to go and what to do around Kenmare. Breakfast was delicious every morning. The room was huge and comfortable with a modern bathroom - better than a hotel! Highly... More

Just visited. Second time to Kenmare. Love this town. Great location for Beara Pen, Kilarney Nat. Park, or Ring of Kerry. First time at Forgefield House. Excellent stay. Modern clean room. Large bath and nice shower. View from the breakfast room of a beautiful field. Food was delicious each day. Quiet area of town. Windows open at night. Dead silence.... More

We stayed here with our elderly parents and we were all made to feel very welcome! Sheila and Sam were so kind and chatty. We felt quite at home! The house was immaculate and breakfast, bountiful. Many thanks for your hospitality! Sam recommended various good places to eat in the town which helped our choice.

We had a fabulous 2 night stay at this beautiful B&B. The room was very spacious and light and the hosts Sheila and Sam were really friendly and helpful. We felt like it was a home away from home and we would have loved to have stayed longer. The location was quiet and the views from our room were idyllic.... More
