David and Carmel were wonderful hosts. David built this entire Irish cottage and much of the furniture himself. He was a great help to us, as we got two flat tires from hitting some sharp rocks when a bus came over the line at us when we were leaving Killarney National Park. He came out and picked us up and...

We so enjoyed staying in this quaint cottage. It may look small from the outside but our room was adequate and the bathroom roomy. There are so many little details that just make this place stand out as singular and memorable. The gardens are lovely with so many whimsical little touches. The lounge is quite cozy and homey. The dining... More

We stayed late May, 2015. Carmel was a wonderful host and she really helped us along tremendously!! Great tips on things to see & do, and premium customer service. The B&B is fantastic, the host were wonderful, and the food was delicious! Take the back road into Kenmare off the beaten path. Our only wish was that we could've stayed... More

Carmel was a fantastic host when we met her this morning, it was her son who met us in last night. After a perfectly cooked and much needed breakfast Carmel was... More

We really enjoyed staying at this owner built B and B. Our bicycles were allowed inside too which was nice for them. It was easy to cycle into Kenmare to eat, and our breafast the next morning was excellent. As we were about to ascent Moll's Gap a good breakfast was rather essential...

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

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
