My wife and I were here using Kenmare as a base to tour the area. The proprietors were a super nice couple and their home was perfect. The room we were in was huge and comfortable. We had nice breakfasts before traveling. Make sure to go out to the right and over the little bridge and around to town at... More

Sorry for the late review, but better late than never. I really liked Forgefield House. Sam and Sheila run a great BnB in the wonderful town of Kenmare. Both were very friendly and were helpful with traveling tips. My teenage daughter and I stayed here for two nights in the latter part of July. Our ground floor room was very... More

Staying with Sam and Sheila at Forgefield House was excellent in every aspect. They were kind and caring in absolutely everything. Lovely extremely spacious rooms, comfortable beds, beautifully modern bathrooms and very thoughtful attention to detail, such as providing nice slippers to their guests. Their breakfast is excellent and delicious, cooked to order and done with a lovely view out... More

My girlfriend and I stayed there for 2 nights and it was perfect. Warm welcome with tea and biscuits, a lovely room en suite with king size bed and a big breakfast with a nice chat in the morning. Perfect 'base camp' to discover the southwest like ring of kerry and ring of beara or kilarney national park.

We have stayed a few days in Forgefield House in July 2015 and were pleasantly surprised by the warm and personal welcome of the owners, Sheila and Sam, who served great breakfasts, had numerous tips and information about the surroundings and even offered to bring us to the very nearby village or pick us up. We felt very much at... More

Forgefield House is a gem of a place to stay and enjoy the glorious scenery of Kerry. Sheila and Sam are so welcoming and did everything in their power to make our few days in their very comfortable house an absolute joy. Our bedrooms and bathrooms were substantial and well-equipped allowing a superb night's rest and the breakfast in the... More

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
