We will definitely be back! Beautiful accommodations and wonderful breakfast. The staff is wonderful. The B&B is walking distance to the heart of Kenmare. Kenmare is the perfect Irish town. Very quiet. Nice surroundings. Can't say enough good things about The Lodge!

We stayed for one night before we started to hike the Beara Way. The room was magical. It was large, clean and decorated beyond belief. The en-suite bath was large with a wonderful soaking tub and shower. The breakfast was served in a beautiful room and the staff was extremely friendly. The owner, Rosemary, took time to ask about our... More

Just 10 minutes walk from town centre. Lovely guest house. Big car park at the side of the main building. Spacious, comfortable room with all amenities. Staff were most welcoming and a great source of advice on where to eat, drink and visit during our two night stay. Breakfast was very good and freshly cooked. Thoroughly enjoyed our time here...

Stayed here for two nights for a wedding and was delighted with it. Beautiful rooms with gorgeous mahogony beds, really felt like we were staying in a 5 star hotel not a b&b. Members of our family stayed in other B&Bs in Kenmare for a similar price and came to see our room & couldnt believe the difference!! The staff... More

Rooms large and clean but the place has seen better days which shouldn't stop you staying here; keep reading. Lovely living room for chatting. Has pictures and other memorabilia from the area. Easy walk to downtown, but needs an outside light in the entrance. We walked from town after dark and would have missed the hotel save a car's lights... More

My wife and I stayed here 22 years ago and were stunned. Still very good but competition has upped their game inIreland. Facility now a bit long in the tooth. Rosemarie and Annie were very gracious indeed. Breakfast set up with fine linens etc was superb. Location could not be better

Beautiful B&B in a great location...easy walk to the lovely small town center with great pubs. The bathroom was on the small side but very modern, clean and sparkling (stunning...marble ...I think). The included breakfast was delicious. Rosemarie, the gracious host/owner, is a lovely and very friendly woman. Parking was free, easy and very conveniently located. We would love to... More

Really great place, very friendly. We stayed in the primrose room with our disabled son. Room was better than a lot of hotels I have stayed in. Our son is on a special diet and the staff were happy to accommodate this. Will definitely be back!

My partner and I hiked through the beautiful west coast of Ireland in July 2013. The first day we were there was typical Irish weather - cool and wet -- perfect for hiking. All the subsequent days we were treated to a humid heat wave where the temperatures were in the 30s C (90s F) -- thank you global climate... More
