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.

This establishment was clean and very comfortable. The most outstanding part was the brilliant staff that were on the ball with a magnificent breakfast. It is also connected to the Coachmans Inn in town which offered great music and fantastic food. They couldn't have done anything else to make out stay more comfortable. Definitely would return.

It would be unfair to review the actual hotel as we never got to stay there, so this is based wholly on the customer service. When we arrived at the hotel for our one nights booking, there was a note pinned to the door explaining that they had had a problem with the boiler and we had been relocated to... More

I stayed in the Brass Lantern last weekend with a group of friends. It was a fantastic weekend made even better by the rooms and service in the Brass Lantern. On arrival I was given a very spacious room upstairs with a most comfortable bed. The bedroom and the bathroom was spotless. Breakfast was delicious both mornings. The centre of... More
