We arrived in Kenmare looking for B&B and were guided to the Brass Lantern as a recommend. It was a very short walk from the town centre approx 4 minutes. This B&B is well priced and is clean and cozy. The staff are also friendly and will accommodate your needs. Highly recommended!!

Forgot to book breakfast but that was no problem and we could have them in the mornings. Also staying an extra night was negotiable. Some trip information is available like Ring of Beara and Ring of Kerry and a helping hand for booking a boat trip to see some seals. Ps. Chocolates makes Siobhan happy, staying in The Brass Lantern... More

We stayed for 3 nights recently and were delighted with our stay. The location was perfect, close to the center, private parking and beautiful , clean guest accommodation. Breakfast was superb, choices of French toast with maple syrup, scrambled eggs and smoked Kenmare salmon being my favourites. Perfect wifi although we barely used it. Both the lady who checked us...

Spent 2 nights at this B&B when attending a wedding in Kenmare - the location of the B & B is excellent - quiet and just a short walk to Kenmare town and the church. The staff could not have been more helpful both prior to and during our stay, and were happy to provide recommendations for hairdressers/beauticians/carparking & other... More

We had some troubles in contacting the owner the day of our arrival, but the stay was really good: the room was nice and large , very clean. The breakfast was also good . The location is easy to find and close to restaurants and pubs, also quiet in a room with windows on the street. Thank you!

This is a small home that was converted into an 11 guestroom inn. There is no front desk, just a small living room and dining room. You are given a key for the front door of the home and another key for your room. The rooms are quite comfortable and clean. The property is located near, not in, the main... More

This B&B is attached to a pub in town-Kenmare. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was fine but the B&B lacked the personal touch of a Bean an Tí (woman of the house). However the house was clean and well presented and had ample parking at the rear of the house.
