We thought it was new when we saw both the inside and outside, and then found out it was built decades ago, and renovated 25 years ago. They take really good care of this B&B! Really beautiful room, wonderful welcome, terrific breakfast. All perfect.

Amidst all the legitimate top reviews for this B&B, my husband and I feel compelled to speak out on the disappointments we encountered there on our most recent trip to Ireland. Sallyport House is part of a very reputable group of small historic homes( go to "Hidden Ireland" and enjoy the picks) This was my second stay at Sallyport House... More

We had a wonderful stay at this charming guest house. Our room was located on the second floor of the structure which offered wonderful views of the countryside and was very comfortable, clean, quiet and furnished beautifully.

Sallyport House is very close to town, a beautiful path leads through the woods. The rooms were very spacious, clean, beautifully furnished. Ours overlooked the wonderful back yard filled with birds, rabbits, a pheasant, we even saw a family of badgers! Breakfast was delightful, loved the poached rhubarb!

We had a wonderful two-night stay here -- the house and our room were both quite lovely --furnished beautifully with lovely antiques and fabrics -- elegant but also warm and welcoming. The room and the bathroom were both quite spacious. Breakfast was delicious. The garden and grounds are also very nice. The owner was extremely gracious and gave us some... More

My family loved our all-too-brief stay with Janie & John at Sallyport House! Their home is in a beautiful setting, beside Kenmare Bay and a short, lovely walk from Kenmare. Sallyport is situated right between the tour-bus-laden Ring of Kerry and the tour-bus-free Ring of Beara. On an August bank holiday weekend, after beating a hasty retreat from thoroughly overrun...

I'll say right off the bat, this place is not in any way my style. It's furnished in an antique style (I have no way of knowing what's an actual antique) and it's the kind of place where you feel like you have to be quiet. That said, it's a very comfortable place to stay in an absolutely gorgeous spot,... More

What a joy to stay in this beautiful old home! We were lucky to get a room, with a four poster bed and views over the conservatory and garden, where we watched the birds and a bunny. The breakfast was delicious, Janie was lovely and friendly, we were close to the village, the house was furnished and decorated so beautifully,... More

An elegant driveway sets the tone for this very classy B & B. Rabbits and badgers are in the surrounding gardens but unfortunately we did not encounter any. The amazing variety of birds at our breakfast window made up for it and provided a delightful cabaret while we indulged in the great food. Hushed tones, even from the Americans suggested... More

We stayed three nights at this amazing B & B as our base in Kenmare, Ireland. Janie our hostess was so helpful and friendly. The house is just so beautiful and elegantly decorated with attention to every detail. Our room was magnificent with a view to a meadow that sustained a local Pheasant family and a Fox, also many species... More
