We stayed with Brendan and Geraldine for one night last week. If I would have known how easy it would be to reach some of our destinations from Kenmare, I would have stayed here longer instead of moving on to Killarney and another hotel. Brendan and Geraldine were fantastic! We were welcomed with coffee, tea and cookies as well as... More

We were disappointed in this B&B. Exterior is a parking lot. The name and photo is made to give the impression this is an old abbey converted into a B&B **NOT**. Exterior appears to have been designed and constructed by an owner/handy man. Inside, everything is old and dated.

Staying at the Abbey Court was the highlight of our trip. We had always heard about Irish hospitality and this is what we found with the gracious Ceallaigh family. We felt so charned by the genuine welcome and the family helped us in so many ways with helpful routes, maps and music reservations. The room was spotless and very comfortable... More

Three of us stayed in the apartment, next to the main house. It was very spacious, clean and modern. The huge full Irish breakfast, cooked by Brendan himself, was enough to feed an army! I would definitely recommend Abbey Court to anyone visiting Kenmare.

Amazing freshly cooked Irish breakfast washed down with an endless supply of tea and coffee. Owners extremely accommodating and helpful. Spotlessly clean. No facility to accept card payment so bring cash!

Have not stayed in many B&Bs, so was not sure what to expect, but so delighted with Abbey Court! Great hosts, who helped find delicious dinner and great music within just a short walk to town center. Rooms were lovely and comfortable. Terrific breakfast the next morning - will definitely stay here again!

We stayed five nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. The host and hostess helped us daily with sightseeing plans, suggestions, directions and made us feel completely at home. Room and bathroom were very clean, neat and comfortable with a great view of Kenmare Bay. We enjoyed the walk into Kenmare along the... More

This is an amazing bed and breakfast. Location is near the town and near the water's edge. Rooms are immaculate, bright and airy. You can listen to the birds in the morning and breathe in the fresh country air. The beds are very comfortable and great shower pressure. Breakfast was good also. I had the special which was scrambled with... More

Lovely B&B. Host and hostess were charming, welcoming and very helpful. Spotless, well appointed, near to town center. Delightful dining room with excellent breakfast. Highly recommend. There were 6 in our party and we unanimously agreed this was a great place to stay.

The owners gave us a extremely warm Irish welcome and always made sure that they were around to help. They booked golf and mde dinner reservations for us. Rooms were immaculate,... More
