When booking this B&B the owners made the place sound like it was quaint and whimsical. We didn't quite get what we expected. It was not as close to the main streets as expected but it does have a small parking lot! The decor is a bit worn, over decorated but not exactly cozy. The room was cold and plain.... More

We had a great couple nights with wonderful hosts Gretta and Paul. They were very helpful explaining how everything worked in the room and giving us recommendations for restaurants and things to do around Kenmare. They both had great senses of humor which made the visit that much more enjoyable. The breakfasts were great as well and very filling, highlighted... More

Comfortable and spacious room within walking distance to town, restaurants, shopping. Convenient central location to tour in many directions - Ring of Kerry, Ring of Beara and Killarney. Stayed three nights but easily could have used this location to stay longer to see and do more. Paul was entertaining and a GREAT source of info on where to go and... More

Paul and Gretta were wonderful hosts. We arrived later than expected and had to leave early the next morning, but enjoyed every minute we were there. The rooms were clean and nice. We even enjoyed a late night cup of tea after dinner. Breakfast was fantastic the next day too! We all thoroughly enjoyed the full Irish. We also have... More

Booked it on booking.com but was phoned and asked to cancel (so they could keep the commission). The shower and TV in my room didn't work. On leaving they only take cash- presumably because they don't fancy giving the taxman anything either. When I asked for a discount due to the shower not working was given some quip about having...

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
