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

We had stayed in Rockcrest House on a previous visit to the wonderful town of Kenmare, but unfortunately it was booked up on our return. So we stayed with Mary in Hawthorn House B&B at the top of the town and we really couldn't recommend it enough. The welcome was so warm, the room was great, the breakfast lovely. It... More

Just stayed here over the weekend and can't say enough good stuff about the place, Mary the owner looked after all our needs (we have a 3 month old). Our room was spacious and had everything you would want. You could not get any closer to the centre of town. Breakfast is delicious and Mary is always there to help... More

We were delighted to be welcomed in without notice to this lovely and busy guest house hotel. Perfectly situated for a visit to the Rings of Beare and Kerry, Hawthorne House sits at the top of the main street making it an excellent base for this stunning area. Good secure parking was available and a warm welcome, comfortable room and... More

We spent one night at Hawthorn House towards the end of June. This B&B is located in a great spot in Kenmare, close to the shops, pubs and restaurants. Our room was a bit dated but spacious and had a nice big window which allowed for plenty of fresh air. Bathroom towels could be updated with some new ones. Breakfast... More

Located in the heart if Kenmare, this B&B was cozy and welcoming. We truly felt like family during our three night stay. Mary, the owner, will tell you everything you want to know about the area, including the town of Kenmare and the two peninsula rings. Along with being very knowledgeable, Mary was such a joy to have as a... More

Kenmare is a beautiful town with a reputation for great B&B's. Hawthorn house does not disappoint. We had an excellent stay which topped off a great family break! It started with a great welcome and a detailed run down on where the local attractions were as well as restaurants and places for the kids. Our room was spotless and very... More
