We stayed here for three nights in May and can't speak highly enough of this lovely house. From the time of booking through to departure everything was exceptional. Lovely big rooms with superb en suite facilities, also desk and armchairs for any relaxing time. Terrific breakfast served by very willing and charming staff. If we're going back to Kenmare in...

We made this booking during our travels, so we didn't know how it would work out. What a wonderful surprise! Yes, it's just as beautiful as the online pictures! The Lodge is gorgeously decorated, but still very comfortable. It provided lovely bedrooms, plenty of parking, and easy walking distance to restaurants and pubs. The breakfast was terrific as well.

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
