Visited in early April for 2 days, loved the place. Mary was extremely helpful, great food, good travel advice, on-site parking. Good location for visiting the Baera (?) peninsula and Ring of Kerry. Easy walking distance (50yd) to the shops, pubs and restaurants. Very comfortable beds, which is important if you're doing a lot of traveling. Recommend a couple of... More

We had a great time staying at the Hawthorne House! Mary and her family were so friendly and helpful. The location was fantastic and breakfast was delicious! We didn't make reservations ahead of time, but they were able to accommodate us and let us park our rental car behind the house. They recommended a place for dinner and music and... More

We stayed a extra day because we were so comfortable and enjoyed Mary's company. The B&B is the prefect location for this beautiful town and area to explore. Oh did we mention Mary she is a delightful Lady. The rooms are very nice and clean and breakfast are very good also.

A wonderful, homely, B&B. Very reasonable rates and friendly staff. And it's only a few yards from Henry Street with its shops, restaurants, pubs and cafés. Kenmare is a great town and Hawthorne House is an ideal place to stay. We would definitely go back there, in fact I'm sure we will!

My husband and I spent one night at Hawthorne House in September 2013 prior to driving the Ring of Kerry. It was a perfect location just steps from all the shops and restaurants. Mary was a delightful host and made us feel very at home. Our room was large and very clean. Breakfast was excellent. We would certainly recommend a... More

Our stay at Hawthorne House in October was delightful. Our rooms were comfortable and immaculately clean. The location was perfect and the breakfast very good. But, the best part was Mary the gracious and vivacious proprietress. Mary made us feel at home immediately, made recommendations for restaurants and pubs all of which were great, and suggested a days sightseeing drive... More

My girlfriend and I were doing the Ring of Kerry and ending in Kenmare. We checked out several hostels and found that the prices were more or less the same (60-70 Euro for a double room), and ended up doubling back to Hawthorn House for its warm atmosphere and welcoming host Mary. She told us a lot about Kenmare and... More
