My family of four and I stayed at O'Sheas during a recent visit to the Kenmare area. We were able to arrange our visit with Therese beforehand and were able to stay in a room that easily held our family. The room was extremely accommodating in terms of size and overall square footage. The accommodations were spotlessly clean, spacious and... More

Even though I made my reservation months in advance AND confirmed via email prior to my trip, I was informed I had no room and was set up with another establishment. Thankfully, the other B&B was a great stay.

What a great place to stay while visiting Kenmare and the Ring Of Kerry. Therese is a wonderful hostess and made us feel right at home. We had a king room which was very well appointed. Therese takes pride in her home and it shows in the cleanliness and neatness all around. We would definitely recommend O'Shea's and hope to... More

We were so excited to return to O'Shea's Ceol Na Habhann and were not disappointed! From our welcoming hugs from Therese upon our arrival to more hugs and a special parting gift of the best scones I've ever had as we sadly left for our next destination, our stay in Kenmare and with Therese was wonderful! Therese keeps a lovely,... More

This was a lovely B&B, cosy and clean and the lady who owns it is so nice & welcoming! Only 1 minute drive from Kenmare town..perfect location to avoid expensive accomodation in the town itself. 100% going back

Our recent trip to Kenmare brought us back to O'Shea's Coel Na Habhann. Once again we were greeted with hugs and given our choice of rooms. Therese is a wonderful hostess and even packed us some of her famous scones for our day trips. Finished to the highest standard this is the place to stay when visiting Kenmare.

We stayed for one night while attending a wedding in Kenmare. Therese was very welcoming when we arrived, giving us tips about taxis in kenmare and the options and times for breakfast the next morning etc. The room and facilities were great, very clean and nicely decorated with art. At breakfast the next morning, Therese went out of her way... More

Therese is a wonderful host and a very welcoming and excellent example of Ireland's superb hospitality. From the time of booking throughout our two night stay, she couldn't have done more to make us feel comfortable and welcome. She even spent time with us sharing her thoughts on everything from the effect of the euro on the Irish economy to... More
