We stayed one night in this B&B and found it to be as advertised - we had a very comfortable room with 4 poster bed, antique appointments, and like the rest of the house - neat as a pin, clean as a whistle, and tranquil. Although not right in downtown Kenmare, it is just a few minutes walk from an... More

Sallyport is a lovely B&B located a 10 minute walk from the quaint town of Kenmare. Jeannie is the owner of this home built by her grandfather. It's a beautiful 10 minute walk to town through a bit of forest and across a lovely stream. Nice sized rooms; good breakfast with fresh fruit and nice choices. Well appointed common rooms.... More

We just returned from a two night stay at this beautiful and elegant stately home. Our large room was located upstairs and had a private sitting room looking out on the beautiful garden. There are several gracious sitting rooms downstairs which is always a plus in a b&b. We were greeted by Janie upon arrival and John spent a lot... More

We found this fabulous house in an internet search for quality properties for Irish stays. Spacious off-street parking, close-proximity to Kenmare town, beautiful-home with a long history, excellent guest suites and a VERY warm welcome by Janie Arthur makes this a super place to stay. The rooms / furnishings / breakfast - all fabulous. The walking route to the river... More

Everything from the location, view, comfort, cleanliness, size and breakfast were perfect. Janey and her brother were great hosts and were also able to help up us with our travel plans/directions We would definitely return.

The Sallyport never disappoints....it just gets better. The house is a large, well appointed home with large bedrooms upstairs. Ours was at the back of the house (#5), overlooking the meadow. The beds were very comfortable and we also had a sitting room. The other couple staying with us, had the choice of any of the other rooms and chose... More

Our time at Sallyport House was wonderful. The house is beautiful. The room was very clean and comfortable. The bathrooms were large! The house was very quiet. We felt like we were the only ones there. Our hostess, Janey, was very welcoming and helpful. The breakfasts were awesome! The location was ideal. The walk to town centre is short. We... More

My parents, sister and I stayed for 3 nights in June. Janey was very welcoming and when she saw that the stairs were a bit of a struggle for my parents insisted on changing rooms around so that they were the ground floor. She could not have been kinder. The house is beautifully and comfortably furnished and the breakfasts are... More

We were really impressed by sallyport house. House is very tastefully furnished with lots of antiques. Our room was beautiful overlooking the harbour. It was a short walk into kenmare on a lovely gravel path, along the shore line. Well worth a visit.

We had a lovely experience staying at Sallyport House. Our room was beautifully appointed with a nice view of the water. It was spotlessly clean. Our hosts, especially Janey, were welcoming, helpful and professional. The location is ideal, both for walking into Kenmare along a lovely lakeside path, and generally for visiting this part of Ireland. Kenmare is situated exactly... More
