The best part of this hotel is its central location. Formerly a wonderful historical landmark, it has lost its luster over the years. Rooms in the back are difficult to access due to numerous stairways and narrow hallways. However, they were comfortable. Breakfast area and service were very good. Kenmare is an ideal location to begin exploring the Ring of... More

We had a large street level room (#103), which means that pedestrian walking on this busy street could walk through the 2 large windows. They also let in all the conversations and the light from the street lamps. Rooms on the back are smaller.

This is a nice hotel. Nice staff. Nice rooms. Great breakfast. But, we only had 2 towels. No face cloths, one hand towel and 2 bath towels. Very strange. No soap (thank goodness I brought my own). Then we noticed that they only had the fitted sheet on the bed. Typically, you have a flat sheet and the comforter on... More

We have stayed at this friendly hotel in May for many years now and our visit this year was as enjoyable as ever. Being situated at the top of this beautiful little town, makes the hotel and ideal place to stay, with access to all the town's many attractions, on foot. The Hotel has adequate and secure parking at the... More

Stayed here as participating in the ring of Beara cycle. Upon arrival hotel staff extremely accommodating with bike storage and check in. Hotel is very centrally situated in Kenmare town so is perfect for hitting the pubs and restaurants. Beds were a little on the hard side and funny kind of aroma in the room (upon investigation it was found... More

We stayed elsewhere, but we really enjoyed our dinner here very much. We started with fish chowder, shrimp, and duck pate. All were very good. Our entrees included lamb shank, baked salmon, and pork ribs. The lamb shank was incredible, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. My wife is on a mission to copy this preparation! The...

Kenmare is a charming town, and the Lansdowne Arms is in a prime location. It has a fabulous exterior, and nice common rooms, however the room they showed us smelled very musty. They promptly moved us to another room, which was nicer, however it was very dated and the water in the bathtub was tinged greenish. The breakfast was more... More
