Visiting Kenmare for one night with some friends. This B&B is situated at the top of the Main Street where all the pubs and restaurants are located, so it's very handy! Parking is available too, which was great! The room was big and clean with all mod cons. Bed very comfortable. Breakfast very nice. I managed to lose my phone... More

Thanks Mary for a great trip. We'd a big group and the lovely host let us take over a little bit. So friendly, helpful and welcoming. Great location, right in the middle of town but not too close to pubs as to be a disturbance. Would highly recommend.

Discovered this place by sheer coincidence (another fully booked B&B owner in Kenmore referred us here) and we could not have been more lucky. From the moment we entered the door, Mary made us feel at home in her spotlessly clean and cozy home. The room was spacious and the beds very comfortable. As this place is on the major... More

What a fabulous place. Clean and neat room. The owner was amazing. Very informative and helpful. It felt like family. We are planning to send relatives there as a referral. I would highly recommend this as the beat place to stay.

The Hawthorn house was clean and it is in a great location. You can walk down the street to the pubs and walk back. Breakfast was great! Mary was very nice. We only stayed for one night and I wish we could have stayed longer. It was our first night in Ireland and it was a great way to start... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here on October 14, earlier this month. We arrived, without a reservation, a little on the late side, after 8pm. The owner, Mary, greeted us, extremely pleasantly, was a fabulous host, a great cook and the room was clean and pleasant. The location is at one end of the central street and close to all... More

Hawthorn House is convenient to the town and the pubs, with its own private car park behind the building. Our first floor room was clean, with comfortable beds and excellent water pressure in the shower, and the breakfast was good. Hawthorn House is well placed for a day's exploration of the Beara peninsula or the southern part of the ring... More

Our room was not in the main house but it was quite large and spacious. The bed was comfortable, the shower had great pressure and the room and bathroom were quite clean. There was no WIFI. We were in the building across the driveway so they said we would not be able to get the signal. We went to the... More
