Driftwood Bed and Breakfast was clean and tidy accommodation in a lovely house. Good breakfast provided with lots of options. Very friendly hosts who provided us with great local recommendations for Kenmare and the surrounding area. Would definitely stay here again.

The Driftwood is in an excellent location, walking distance to the City Center. The room and the entire B&B is very clean, modern, and very well maintained. Peter and Mignonne were excellent hosts. The breakfasts were very well done. Bed was very comfortable. We select our B&Bs based on Tripadvisor reviews. The Driftwood receives excellent reviews which reflect the B&Bs... More

We have just stayed at Driftwood on one of there special rates. An absolute fabulous stay, perfect beds, shower and breakfast, also a great host and exceptional value for money. Our location was ideal for visiting the golf course which we overlooked.

5 years ago, we have also stayed a few days at this B & B. All our wishes were then fulfilled. That's the reason why we have recently stayed here again for three days. And the positive feeling that we had then, has not been changed. Peter and Mignonne are very gracious hosts. We also want to emphasize that there... More

What a lovely home turned Bed and Breakfast. The owners, Peter and Mignonne, have impeccable taste that is reflected in Driftwood Bed and Breakfast. We spent two nights here. Peter cooks a great breakfast and Mignonne gave us an excellent map of the Ring of Kerry along with great suggestions. Peter's suggestion of Davitts restaurant was right on and we... More

The Driftwood B & B was our home for two nights last month. It was exceptionally clean, neat, comfortable, and friendly. The location was perfect - a short walk into Kenmare for shopping, eating and a Pub crawl with Irish music. Peter, the Proprietor, was a great host, made an excellent breakfast, and was a good source for local information.... More

This is a lovely little B&B about a 10 min walk from the heart of Kenmare, which is an absolutely amazing town. Our hosts were very nice and kept to themselves for the most part, which I liked. The house was very quiet and relaxing, the rooms are beautiful and clean. The breakfast is wonderful, made when you order it... More

This B&B "Driftwood" in Kenmare, Co. Kerry is a great place to stay. The owners Peter and Mignonne Williams are friendly and helpful and breakfast was delicious. We stayed in the apartment for a number of days. It was exceptionally clean with good facilities and plenty of hot water. Kenmare is a gem of an Irish town. The surrounding countryside... More

I cannot speak highly enough of this B&B or of its hosts! The Driftwood is a short walk to the town center and has parking, which is perfect if you have a car but don't want the hassle of parking in town. The room was immaculately clean and comfortable, and the Irish breakfast was one of the best ones we... More
