During our two week vacation, Virginia’s Gueshouse was the BEST place we stayed! Neil & Noreen are awesome hosts! And the breakfasts were like eating in a 5 Star restaurant plus they had fresh squeezed orange juice every morning! Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. We highly recommend Virginia’s!

Except for on-street parking (which we did find a space) this was one of our best B&B stays. Great location, clean and roomy room. Hosts were great - excellent breakfast selections (agree with others about the ginger & orange juice!) and offered great recommendations for dining & music. Would like to return and spend more time in Kenmare - one... More

Virginia's could be summed up in one word, everything was perfect! Hosts were extremely attentive in making sure we had everything we needed. The food was very tasty and the presentation was impressive.

Noreen and Neil were great hosts, very accommodating. Clean rooms, central location, parked down nearby lane without difficulty. Breakfasts were varied and yummy. Would recommend this to family and friends! Thank you

We enjoyed our stay at Virginia's Guesthouse on May 2014. The breakfast was exceptional (fresh and well cooked, especially the speciality of the house : blue cheese and pears, and the fresh juice with ginger and orange). The room was pretty and really clean. Great location in the heart of Kenmare. We warmly recommend this B&B !!

Norene and Neal were excellent hosts. The breakfast was over the top with some of the best food we had here in Ireland. Neal was witty and helpful with whatever question we had about the area. Norene was an outstanding cook, friendly and helpful too! Our rooms were clean and plenty roomy for our needs. We enjoyed our stay very... More

We called and got a same day reservation. Easy to find and perfectly situated right in Town. Twelve pubs within 2 blocks. Nice rooms and superb breakfast, and gracious hosts. And we found a parking spot right by the front door.

Virginia's is a lovely guesthouse with clean and comfortable good-sized rooms; and Neil and Noreen are wonderful hosts. They don't live on the premises though, so we tried hard to be on time for check-in. We didn't have to use it, but they do have a phone at the entrance that can be used to call if you arrive late....

We had a long day when we arrived in Kenmare. We were later than expected since we had a tire blow on the way from Cahir. Neil was very welcoming and understanding. He saw that we were comfortable and made a dinner recommendation for us. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was superb. We stayed in town to shop... More

My college daughter and I spent two nights at the fantastic guesthouse run by Neil and Noreen. We had just driven four hours from Galway, my first big "wrong side" driving experience, so getting to Virginia's in charming Kenmare was such a welcome relief. The room was spotless and charming, with homey touches like a big stuffed teddy bear. Neil... More
