Our host was such a dear, very welcoming and cheerful. We loved his sunny breakfast room with all the options and the delicious breakfast. Guest were introduced to each other so we felt at ease visiting. There was a comfortable common area and the overall feel of the location was one of welcome. The B&B is conveniently located to enjoy... More

We stayed one night at Avelow House in the beautiful village of Kenmare. We couldn't have been happier with the accommodations of this B&B and our very friendly host, Pat. Kenmare is a very pretty village. Very quaint. Avelow house is just down the road from the city centre, a very nice walk on a cool day, which it was... More

Room and Bathroom tiny, shower and free Wi-Fi operative. Pat is trying to be very very helpful. As during hot spells the window needs to be kept open for ventilation purposes, Pat warned that cats might access the room over the only slightly sloping tin-roof just below the window-sill. Free parking in the front yard. Just and just withing acceptable... More

We stayed for 2 nights in late May 2014. Room is spotlessly clean, bed is comfortable and the breakfast is simply wonderful. What makes this B&B a stand out is the owner, Pat, who is warm and welcoming. I strongly recommend the Avelow House if you are in Kenmare.

Pat is one of the nicest people I've ever met. Great conversations, super welcoming. The room was great, wifi worked excellent, and the breakfast was really good. Free parking, close to a gas station and all major roads. We loved our stay with pat. He even has umbrellas for your use and if you're in Ireland you'll probably need one.

My mom and I stayed there one night last week. We did a whirlwind tour of Ireland. We shared a room with two twin beds. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. We arrived later in the evening so Patrick recommended we walk to the restaurant a block down. The main part of the town is a further... More

Avelow House is in a great location just outside "downtown" Kenmare within a short drive to all the fun. The home is immaculately kept and the rooms are so comfortable and cozy. We were really able to relax and feel rested from the moment we arrived. It is in an excellent location right at the start of the Ring of... More

Patrick is such a wonderful host, a gentle and caring man. He welcomed my husband and I into his home with coffee and cookies, and spent time chatting with us upon our arrival. He was so willing to answer any questions and gave us wonderful recommendations for our 2 night stay in his lovely home. He has such a serving... More

We stayed at the B&B in April 2014 and enjoyed every minute of it. The owner, Pat, is a very nice, welcoming and friendly man. He showed us to our room which was spotless and beautifully decorated and gave us tips about where to go for dinner. The B&B is not located directly in the city center, however you can... More
