We stayed at Driftwood for a few days in early October. It is a lovely spot, very clean and well appointed. The hosts were friendly and helpful and made our visit a pleasure.We spend a couple of evenings reviewing our photographs in the comfortable lounge. Breakfasts were a delight in the bright dining area. The B&B is just a short... More

My friend and I stayed here whilst cycling around the area. The room, breakfast and location were all excellent. The owner was also extremely helpful when we needed to clean up our bikes after a run in with a road newly laid with thick tar! Could not fault.

We were greeted by Peter who was a fabulous host, ready with pointers on the trip and recommendations for dinner. The room was clean and nice. Breakfast was delicious! While I enjoyed the mushroom omelette, fresh baked bread, and fresh fruit cups, my mom was thrilled with her pancakes with blueberries. Driftwood was just a short ten minute walk from... More

My travel girlfriend & I stayed here 2 nights while sightseeing in County Kerry. This seems like a 5 star B&B! We had 2 twin beds, large room, large ensuite bathroom, delicious breakfasts, beautiful home! The owners were both very helpful providing maps, advice, short cut driving route that only locals would be privy. We are both nurses and so... More

We stayed two nights here. I have been in a Kenmare, but was dissatisfied with my previous B&B, so I wanted to try something new. Driftwood fit the bill and was a delight. The owners were friendly and were so helpful with suggestions for our drives. Our room was great. Comfy bed, good water pressure, and hot water. Room was... More

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
