Our stay with Patrick was a highlight of our Ireland trip even though it was only the one night. He has a great B&B layout and serves a fantastic breakfast. The rooms are very clean,quiet,and give you great sleeps. The location is great as we'll. Wish we could have stayed longer .

We recently stayed a week with Pat at the Avelow house and really enjoyed our visit. Pat was a fantastic host, made us feel very comfortable and offered us suggestions for restaurants, hikes and also provided a delicious breakfast. If we return to Kenmare we would definitely stay here again and highly recommend Avelow house.

Our stay at the Avelow House B and B was fantastic. We were warmly welcomed by the owner, who is one of the sweetest individuals you could hope to meet. He made us feel comfortable in every way. He greeted us at the door, helped carry our luggage inside in a rainstorm and went out of his way to be... More

This B&B is run by a very charming Irish gentleman called Pat. He is a wonderful host and always left us smiling. The B&B is a 5 minute walk to town, and although on a main road, there is little traffic at night. The room was neat and tidy and clean, and the breakfast options were varied and tasty. Pat... More

This was a very good choice after a day of touring and driving. Good rooms, good breakfast and good parking. Pat is very friendly and helpful and runs a good B&B. It is walking distance to town so you are out the busy traffic but close to everything you need. Highly recommend.

We stayed in this lovely B&B for 2 nights last week. The trip was a surprise for my 50th birthday and I could not have been happier with the choice of accommodation. Anybody who is thinking of opening a B&B, should go down to Avelow House and see the way Pat runs it. Nothing is too much trouble for this... More

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.

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
