Our family always stays at The Lodge when we are in Ireland! Rosemary has always made us feel right at home there. Accommodations are lovely and it's a close and picturesque walk into town. My daughters absolutely love kenmare and the lodge. We are hoping to return in may.

Rosemarie is the perfect host, so friendly and warm, she can't do enough for you. The house is beautiful, very traditional, just a Wow when you enter the hallway. The room was very spacious, bedding and bathroom absolutely spotless. Enormous soft bath towels. I would thoroughly recommend staying in The Lodge on your visit to Kenmare, with Quills Woollens on...

We stayed at the Lodge in July 2014. Very comfortable, I would guess purpose built guest house (so good sound insulation, comfortable rooms and bathrooms). Staff were very accommodating and breakfast was great. We will be back.

I love my first visit to Republic of Ireland and of all the accommodation we chose to stay in, I especially was so glad I chose The Lodge in Kenmare. From the service staff to the Manager, everyone was just so helpful and so very kind. They were so generous with their time in explaining and sharing best places to... More

The majestic stairwell lined with oil paintings set our expectations for our room. We weren't disappointed. Rich, romantic colors, in a spacious room. Antique wooden furnishings, including the four poster king bed. Quiet and restful, even though the town experienced an historic windstorm event. An outstanding Full Irish Breakfast completed a memorable stay.

The Lodge is a stylish, comfortable guesthouse. We usually do the hotel thing but decided to give this guesthouse a try instead. We were delighted we did. The friendliness of the staff and owner was great and we felt we got the personal touch that is sometimes missing in a hotel. The rooms were comfortable and spotless and the bed... More

The Lodge was warm and friendly. Rosemarie was delightful, warm and friendly. It is just a short walk from town, across the street from the golf club and an ideal location to use as a base to explore the Ring of Kerry and Killarney National Park. The breakfast was great, homemade and a wonderful way to start off each day.... More

The Lodge was ok but a bit impersonal, there was a feeling of not really being able to touch anything ! Bed linen did not seem to fit the bed which was a little uncomfortable. Very clean and an excellent location.

kenmare is a super place to visit. great food, scenery, but can be expensive. the lodge at €80 for B&B for 2 in peak summer is great value. 5 mins walk from town centre. parking and wifi available free. rooms are beautiful. breakfast includes home-made bread and scones. highly recommended.
