This was a great b&b, better than some hotels I've stayed in. The room was huge with lovely big bathroom. The receptionist was very friendly and polite. Breakfast was amazing! It was right in the centre of Kenmare.

Nothing compares to Davitts. I travelled all over Ireland for 2 weeks and wished that every B&B & hotel was like Davitts. From the start, Mary greeted us as if we were family. We had an enormous room overlooking the main strip, which was sunny, inviting, and spotless. The location is perfect - you're in the heart of the town... More

This was my second stay at Davitt's and I was once again pleased with the rooms and the service. The rooms are very spacious, with big skylights and huge bathrooms by european standards. The bed was very comfortable. The wifi wasn't working properly when I stayed but I was told they were working on it. The food in the restaurant... More

This guest house is amazing. From our arrival to departure nothing was too much trouble. I stayed here with my Sister and Brother in law. Both rooms were very clean and tastefully furnished. We ate in the restaurant and found the food to be wonderful. Our waiter, Kurt, was both attentive and amusing and deserves recognition for this. We were... More

We had booked three nights at Davitts - which included breakfast in the morning. Our room was on the top floor and had three of these windows that opened up for air movement. Plenty of room. It appeared that these rooms (we were traveling with another couple) had been recently renovated. Would highly recommend!

At the last minute, partly because of weather and partly after driving on the narrow country roads, I changed my plans to stay in Skibbereen and get a bit closer to Dingle. I am so glad I did and so very glad to get a last minute stay at Davitts. What a great value for a lovely and large room.... More

First of all we only had dinner and drinks and did not stay in the guesthouse area. My wife and I found it hard to choose what to eat as they have a great menu. We selected a Sirlion steak and Fish & Chips and completely enjoyed our meal. We had another couple join us and a good time was... More

We stayed here in February for a few days. The room was spacious, bright and clean. The food served in the pub was excellent particularly a wonderful breakfast buffet with lots of variety. I would recommend Davits highly. The only downside was the parking which was a bit awkward and very little space. But overall a great comfortable stay.

I stayed here on my recent trip to Ireland, and I was so overjoyed with this guesthouse! The woman who runs it is so nice and helpful, as are all of the staff at the guesthouse itself and the restaurant downstairs! The area is so beautiful and Davitts is a perfect location to see all of it! I highly recommend... More

Very easy to find but hard to find parking if you are driving. Nice clean large room. They put us on the 3rd floor at the back and we had to lug bags up three flights of stairs. Centrally located in town so it was easy walking distance to everything. Breakfast was good but not anything remarkable. It was a... More
