We really loved staying at O'Donnabhain's in Kenmare. The rooms were more spacious than any rooms we stayed in over our two weeks traveling Ireland. The rooms were nicely decorated and the bed very comfortable. The location is absolutely perfect to be in the middle of town. Our experience was a little odd in that the bar below was closed...

I was a bit hesitant to book a room over a pub, but NO WORRIES! Our lovely room was clean, quiet and cozy. Breakfast was large and delicious in a pretty lounge. The location is excellent and the parking was great, there was room to park either on the street or in the back with no cost. Only complaint is... More

Great place, breakfast was fabulous, only complaint was that a scottish girl in bar was not friendly at all. Maybe she was having a bad day, don't know. Room very comfortable, great location, we could walk everywhere.

Excellent accommodation - have stayed in O'Donnabhain's on numerous occasions and it is always a lovely stay. Great location in the town of Kenmare. The rooms are spacious and bright, and the breakfast is always really lovely, as is the lady who serves them! Could not fault this accommodation, really good value and location.

We thoroughly enjoyed the hominess of O'Donnabhain's Guesthouse. The accommodations were comfortable, and the food offerings for breakfast and dinner should you decide to dine at the bar below, were excellent. Located in downtown Kenmare, there was plenty of shops and restaurants to meet our needs. We ended up staying an extra day. The only shortcoming was that the Wi-Fi... More

This B and B has one of the nicest staff's, all were pleasant, conversational, and professional. The owner greeted us at the bar and gave us the keys and told us to stop by sometime to pay. We had an appetizer at the bar and then did some exploring up and down Henry Street but ended up back at the... More

Arrived here on a very wet miserable day to a friendly face. Staff here are fantastic and the breakfast was just the ticket. Everything ticks along nicely here and no major issues but a couple of small points: The wifi does NOT work in the rooms, this was a bit of an issue but we worked round it by having... More

We had a wonderful time here and found the rooms to be excellent! After reading some reviews I was worried about noise, but these worries were entirely unfounded! We stayed in family room #7, two floors above the bar area, and toward the back, there was no noise whatsoever. The rooms were nicely decorated and had skylights with shades. The... More

My only negative comment is the Wifi doesn't work in the room. Otherwise this B&B was top notch. I would highly recommend this location. The staff were super friendly and always had a smile on their face.
