Stayed in a two bed self catering apartment in the centre of Kenmare, just across the road from O'Donnabhains, who own the property. Accommodation first class and very comfortable, tv's in lounge and both bedrooms. Bed linen and towels also supplied. Dined in O'Donnabhains, meals were always top notch and staff very pleasant. Really enjoyed our stay. Margaret L and... More

Enjoyed my recent stay. Room very clean and comfortable. Breakfast also of a high standard. Would recommend. The only negative would be the parking facilities. Very limited and also felt it was so near the smoking area that is was not very secure. Will stay here again.

We loved our time in Kenmare and our stay at O'Donnabhain's was great. The location is absolutely perfect and the staff goes above and beyond. The breakfast was a great addition and the pub was a fun place to sit and enjoy a pint. We loved our stay!

Very good pub with friendly and helpful people who are always good for hints. Good place for tours to Killarney, Beara and Ring of Kerry. Good lunch often with live music but also the possibility to rest in the room where only a little bit from the music was heard. All neccessary shops are nearby (also a very good bakery... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in O'Donnabhain's, they are centrally located in Kenmare Town. We used it primarily as a base and travelled around the area from there. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would recommend O'Donnabhain's for somewhere to stay.

We loved this place! We arrived early because my niece was ill and the nice young man at the desk got our room cleaned and ready right away. The room was clean and comfortable. You could not hear a sound from the pub below. We had dinner at the pub and the food was piping hot and very good. We... More

The pub food was great for lunch then we walked up to our room which was well appointed, clean and QUIET. This was amazing for a Thursday evening in July including the music right down stairs in the pub. The staff was helpful and the food, especially breakfast was superb. We returned 4 days later to retrieve a lost bag... More

Stayed in O'Donnabhain's for a weekend away with the lads. Really nice place right in the center of town. Great food & drink and the staff were all very friendly. Nice beer garden out the back. Rooms were clean & away from the street. Would definitely recommend and will most likely be back next year!

Very good value for money and friendly staff. Only problem was dogs barking very early in the morning and extremely loudly next to our room. This is obviously outside the control of the hotel but very hard to sleep. Options for breakfast were limited but very nice cooked breakfast.
