Stayed in #21 Mon - Thursday. Was impressed at cleanliness. Little touches like dishwasher tabs/ fairy liquid and tea/coffee sachets didn't mean a fast run to the shop on arrival. Discovered due to a storm the night prior satellite did not work and also the travel cot for our 10 month was faulty. Called hotel reception and reported. They forgot... More

A very good accommodation for the walking holiday we were doing. It is well located for the Beara peninsula, the Kerry way, and only 5 minutes walk from the centre of Kenmare township. It is well presented, clean, bar facilities, it has drying facilities, a pool and sauna, and there is plenty of space in the bedrooms. The staff are... More

Stayed here for a week as part of a walking group. The location is excellent being only a few minutes walk from the interesting little town of Kenmare and also a good centre for walks round the area. The bedroom was comfortable and the bathroom had the advantage of a bath as well as shower; always welcome after a strenuous... More

Stayed here for one night to go out in the town and then use as a base for the Beara Peninsula. The hotel is nice and big and the staff were very helpful especially with getting to where we wanted to go in Beara. The rooms are average, nothing special, but couldn't fault them either except could have used an... More

We recently stayed here for a couple of days with our 2 children. The hotel is in a great location within a short walk of Kenmare town centre. The reason we chose the hotel was because of it's swimming pool which can get a little busy, but the kids enjoyed it. The room with a double bed, single bed and... More

We stayed here recently with our 2 children. The family facilities are great especially the kid play corner in restaurant which meant we could enjoy our meals while the kids were kept busy. Our room was a bit of a walk from reception but was quiet and spacious. One staff member in particular stood out, Shauna. She was so attentive... More
