We had a wonderful experience all around. We stayed at the Foley Guesthouse above the pub the first night and 7 nights at 5 Ardmullen Manor home. Everything was more than we expected. We were in town for a family reunion. There were 8 of us who comfortably stayed at the manor home. Several relatives stayed elsewhere and when they... More

All the Kenmare restaurants and pubs right on your doorstep for great nights out too. Warm welcome at check-in and this continued throughout the stay ...all the staff we came across were lovely,...

This guesthouse is in the middle of the town and is good value even in high season. The rooms are clean and while there is "no view" from the rooms at the back I recommend it as a place to sleep rather than hang out. Staff are friendly and the mood is relaxed. There is free parking in the public... More

Full kitchen including washer &... More

We stayed in Ardmullen No 5 which is a 4 bedroomed good sized house just 10mins walk from the town. It has plenty parking and is a good size. There were 7 of us and the facilities and rooms are excellent. Everything was clean, modern and to a high standard. It was great for a family get together and we... More

Foley's is right off the main street in Kenmare. They have an excellent pub that serves food that would please the minimalist as well as those looking for traditional Irish cuisine. The rooms themselves were decorated very nicely as well as extremely clean. The locks could use upgraded; trying to turn the key was very difficult to lock and unlock... More
