We loved this B&B. Peter and Mignonne were gracious and helpful hosts. The place is spotless and the bedrooms comfortable. We often spent late evenings with a spot of Irish Whiskey, sorting through photographs on the lovely sitting room. Breakfast was very good and our hosts helped us sort through where to go on our photo adventures. Lots of hints... More

My wife and I stayed one night and absolutely loved it. Peter and Mignonne were wonderful hosts and their place was lovely; spotlessly clean with a beautiful balcony and a delicious breakfast in the morning with some friendly discussion of the day's activities. Not only was the house great, but the location was close enough to downtown to walk in... More

My partner and I recently stayed in the Driftwood B&B in Kenmare and is also about ten minutes walk from the town centre. We were greeted on arrival by Peter who addressed my partner by name which I thought was a nice touch and he showed him the layout of the property. On entering Driftwood our first impressions was wow,... More

Booked this as a base to explore the area. It was perfect. The town itself is very interesting and has lots to see. We were there on a Wednesday for market and bought fresh produce for a roadside picnic on a beautiful sunny day. The house is beautiful and it is meticulously maintained. Could not fault our stay.

Once again I stayed in Driftwood B&B, with Mr and Mrs Peter and Mignonne Williams in Kenmare - a jewel in the Kingdom of Kerry. Welcoming and spotless accommodation. This was a wonderful stay. The B&B is comfortable and extreemly clean. I took the appartment on this occassion so self-catered. Because of the glorious weather in Kerry, I was able... More

We did 2 nights at the Driftwood in July, my wife and I, and our two kids (19 & 18). We arrived late afternoon, and Peter greeted us by name. The place is spotless, and everything looks new. Peter gave us a good recommendation for a place for dinner, and the town is an easy 10 minute walk. He also... More

We stayed for 2 nights at Driftwood. It is very clean and quiet. The rooms are very simply decorated but all the amenities are available. The hosts Peter and Mignonne are very kind and willing to provide their recommendations for trip ideas and destinations. It is about a 10 minute walk into town, which is nice because it gets you...

We enjoyed our brief stay at the Driftwood B&B. After a long day of driving, we found the B&B to be very comfortable and quite and serene. The color pallet and decorations reminded us of the beach. Peter and his wife were wonderful hosts and breakfast was delicious. We especially enjoyed the pancakes. The Driftwood is a comfortable walk to... More

When my husband and I arrived after leaving the Waterford Castle, I was a bit let down when we arrived at the B&B for a 2 night stay. The selection was made through our travel agency at Exploring Ireland and was listed as #10 out of 55 in Kenmare on Trip Advisor. Peter was quite friendly and noticed my slight... More
