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

A very nice place to stay and a comfortable room. The owner Jeanie was delightful and a great help planning our next day's route with some great tips. This B and B is beautifully positioned as you have a short stroll through woodlands and along the river into town, and also have short walks through the same area. Wi-FI not... More

We stayed two nights at the Sallyport and it could not have been better. The property is nice and quiet, set back from the street and surrounded by a beautiful yard and garden. There's also good on-premise parking. If you want to get out, it's an easy 5-10 minute stroll into the center of Kenmare, or a great entry point... More

Sallyport lived up to its reviews. It is a charming B & B in a perfect location for exploring the town, backbay and surrounding countryside. The rooms were spotless and well appointed, breakfast was very good and the proprietors, Jean and John, were beyond helpful. It is obvious that they have been doing this for a while because they have... More

We only stayed here for one night in June and we were sorry we hadn't booked for two. Sallyport House is lovely and the owners are gracious. Our room was beautifully furnished and we could see the harbor down the long driveway from our windows. They even have a private path into town, which is about a 5-10 minute walk... More

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
