We were on our honeymoon and rolled into Kenmare without a B&B in mind. The night before we looked up B&Bs on many sites and didn't find much of anything in Kilarney or Kenmare. We noted that many B&B's don't do website bookings as the commissions are high, so we drove into town without a reservation thinking we could look... More

A very nice bed and breakfast place within walking distance (5 or 6 minutes) from the central part of Kenmare - still far enough from it to make it quiet. There's plenty of room in the frontyard if you're traveling by car, i.e. no parking problems. We had a spacious and clean room with very comfortable beds. Fast wifi. The... More

Maybe for a single the price is too high, but for a family of four a room was similar to other prices we paid during our stay in Ireland. The location was extremely convenient as it was so close to town, and we had a great time chatting with Paul and Gretta in the morning over breakfast. They were very... More

As with many of the other reviews, this was a nice place, talkative and informative hosts, good breakfast and easy access to Kenmare's city center. I was traveling along and made the mistake of not asking the price of the room per night. Much to my shock when I checked out after 3 nights, Paul informed me my bill was... More

Picked this one out because of the kind words by Rick Steves. An excellent place with a short walk to town. Good rooms, breakfast, and a fun host. All the things you look for in a B and B. Very informative host and excellent cook.

The house is wonderfully kept, and contains a lot of personal items that make you feel welcome. Greta and Paul are great hosts. Our room was large, clean and very comfortable. We enjoyed homemade scones, jam and marmalade with our traditional Irish breakfast. Paul is a very engaging conversationalist and provided very helpful advice on seeing the Ring of Kerry... More

Better check your wallet before booking in here. Make sure you and the owners have a clear understanding of what they are charging you! Oh and don't dare sit on the antique, heirloom furniture that you pass on the way up the stairs! Yes it is well presented but really how do they get away with charging such high prices,... More

Quiet, clean, comfortable bed and breakfast in Kenmare, near Ring of Kerry. Free parking on site. The real attraction is Paul, a jovial, witty conversationalist. Don't just eat and sleep here, engage with the owners.

We enjoyed 2 nights here. It was clean and comfortable and our hosts were very nice. Paul is very funny and was great offering tips and advice and answering our questions. Our room was on the 3rd floor and was quiet and attractive. The bed was comfortable. Greta asked if we would like coffee or tea in our room in... More

We had a pleasant afternoon and evening at this B&B. It was clean and quiet. Not fancy, but the owners were very pleasant and accomodating. Willow Lodge is conveniently located just a few blocks from downtown Kenmare, but not so close as to be noisy. A good value and a good stay.
