This B & B was incredible beautiful with period furniture, not only in the living room space but in each room as well. The rooms were named after flowers and they were all very large and comfortable. the bed was so comfortable in my room and it was easy to use the electric plugs. the owner definitely thought of convenience...

Kenmare, in general, for a first time traveler was quite the surprise. This BnB is right across the street from a golf course (if that's your thing) and really has no faults. The rooms are spacious and clean, the bathrooms fitted for comfort, and the staff is lovely. Rosemary (I believe) is a delightful hostess (in addition to the rest... More

First time visit to Ireland and the County Kerry. We had a very nice stay, and excellent breakfast. There were only minor issues, like lights that didn't work and the wifi was out, but overall the staff was very very courteous and helpful. Rosemary gave us great tips on where to visit and what to do. Rooms were spacious and... More

We dropped in here on the off chance and ended up spending 2 nights here, The Lodge is a little different to your standard accommodation, all the rooms are tastefully and individually decorated, spotlessly clean and spacious. Breakfast was of high standard with a good choice of buffet & hot served food. Great location being only 5 minutes walk from... More

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...
