The owner was friendly and helpful. The rooms were beautiful. Views from our bedroom were amazing. Breakfast was delicious. There is a lovely walk through the woods into town. Kenmare is a charming Irish village.

Beautiful old family home filled with wonderful antiques, and set upon lovely grounds, with beautiful gardens. Wonderful gourmet breakfast. Freshest ingredients, smoked salmon, fresh fruit, homemade pastries, eggs, ham, bacon all cooked to order. Owners on site and ready with questions and great ideas. The B & B is about 3 minutes from the town of Kenmare, where shopping and... More

Sallyport House, operated by the Arthur family, is a magnificent property that was built by the current owners' grandfather. It sits on a beautifully manicured lawn with sumptuous gardens that overlook Kenmare Bay. There's an iron gate to the side that leads through garden paths to downtown Kenmare, which is minutes away. A delicious breakfast was spent birdwatching, with references... More

Our stay at Sallyport House was wonderful. The home, furnishings, and gardens are beautiful. Our room was very quiet and comfortable, with an amazing garden and bay view. Sallyport is in an excellent location a short drive from town center, but we elected to take the short walk into town via the path behind the house and around the water... More

Janie runs a tight ship in the home her grandfather built, and her husband, John, is on hand each morning to help guide each guest on their explorations. He has maps to loan if yours aren't detailed enough, and has lots of off-the-beaten-path tips. He was right on the mark with each one. The house is large, with good-sized bedrooms,... More

I can only underline what other reviewers have said: Sallyport House is an absolutely great B&B! We loved everything about it, from its serene yet convenient setting, the grace and spaciousness of our room (# 7 on the ground floor), the delicious breakfasts, all the way to the friendly and helpful interactions with our hosts. We spent four nights here... More

The Sallyport House location is very quiet, but offers a wonderful view of the Kenmare River (which opens to the Atlantic). A very short, five minute walk along a path by the river inlet (effected by the tides) and you are in town, a delightful community with a plethora of small, cozy pubs with live nightly entertainment. Your hostess, Jane,... More

Just outside of Kenmare, over looking the river is a beautiful BnB run by Mary, John, and Helen. Wonderful antiques, 4 poster beds, views across the river to the Beara, and home cooked Irish breakfasts. Delightful stay and it gave us easy access to the Killarney Parks, and rides around the RIng. Easy walk (5 mons) along the nature trail... More

The location is ideal, a two minute drive into town while on the bank of the Kenmare River which afforded a very private quiet setting. Janie, the host, was extremely warm and helpful in making restaurant reservations. My wife and I stayed for two nights and enjoyed the wonderful Irish breakfast each morning overlooking the garden. The entire house was... More

We stayed here one night after doing the Ring of Kerry drive. Sallyport is in a quiet section of Kenmare town, and we had a room that had a distant view of the bay. It's a nice short walk to town through the walking trail next to the house which wi dis through a park and golf course. Sallyport itself... More
