Having stayed in numerous B&Bs in both Northern Ireland and ROI over the past week, this was the first time we have been offered a coffee on arrival. Carmel, made us feel very welcome indeed. The accommodation is cute and different and I really am struggling to fault it. We were in an upstairs room (No. 4) and the bed... More

What a great little place this was! Our hosts were very kind and made us feel welcome. The room was great, the beds comfortable and our breakfast was tasty. Would love to return again! Recommend this place highly!

We had a very positive experience at the Breens' B&B . The owners were very pleasant and welcoming and eager to make our stay a good one. Very reasonable and breakfast included was wonderful! Recommendations for dinner and other activities were also given to us. It was wonderful to meet real people from Ireland and have a chance to get... More

This is an absolutely adorable and fantastic little B&B. It was our first ever to stay at, and we really truly enjoyed it. Carmel is as sweet as any southern belle and a fantastic cook. Her tomatoes in the morning? astounding! Its an adorable little cottage set outside of town, just go out past the hospital and keep to the... More

This was our only B&B on our trip and we weren't disappointed. Our hostess, Carmel was very friendly and non-intrusive, we were welcomed with a tea and cookies and asked for our wake up breakfast time. The decor is very homey, lots of family pictures in the sitting room. The location is on the outskirts of Kenmare on a very... More

Stay here just because it's different -- and cheap. We were traveling through Ireland with our two teenagers, often taking two rooms to accommodate all four of us, and this was far and away the best bargain of our whole trip. The property is just unusual. Stay, if for no other reason, than to experience this unique thatched roof home,... More

I was so excited to stay here since it was an actual thatched cottage. It looks exactly like the pictures and is adorable looking, inside and out. I would have given it 4 stars but it was my worst night in Ireland and I pretty much did not sleep. We were running behind schedule and arrived late, around 8 pm.... More

This was a unique B&B. From the road it looked charming with it's thatched roof, beautiful gardens, and colourful window boxes. The front door, a forest-green Dutch door, was open and welcoming. Approaching the front door we were greeted by Carmel our hostess, who invited us into the living room and offered us a cup of tea with biscuits...delightful! She... More

The hostess greeted us with tea and a warm smile. The breakfast was delicious. The owner's dog is very sweet, hug-able, and huge. The outside of the B&B was adorable. The owner is extremely talented with woodwork, and had created most of the furniture in the house, which gives the home a lot of character. The walls are very thin.... More
