Davits is a fabulous guesthouse in the heart of Kenmare .. The welcome is great .. All the staff are so helpful and obliging... The rooms are big and clean, a great shower and good wifi... The girl at reception in the morning was concerned that I didn't have breakfast and when I told her that I was on a... More

We checked into Davitt's at noon, and were happy with the pretty, bright room on the third floor. Large room, nice bathroom. Kenmare's restaurants, pubs and shopping are all within a few blocks of Davitt's. The convenient car park behind the hotel/restaurant is small, get there early. Mary was a doll, helpful and welcoming! Breakfast was great, fresh fruit, hot... More

I stayed here for only one night as part of a Wolfhound Adventure tour. As a single, I still got a full sized bed and room, very comfortable, beautiful rooms. Breakfast and dinner were both very good. The wifi connection was terrible but the pub next door also has free wifi and it reaches more of the hotels rooms than... More

This is a very nice guesthouse -accommodation is above restaurant/bar. Check in with a lovely friendly lady, room was big (No 11) facing the street. Very spacious and clean room, comfortable mattress. I liked the very small/ but good attention to details -towels and toilet paper even folded in a simple but different design to being just folded plain. Lovely... More

We stayed here as part of a small tour and loved it. It was very clean. The rooms are big, the beds were wonderfully comfortable, the bathrooms had plenty of hot water and offered a hair dryer. Everything was well equipped. The breakfasts were large and included in the room price--they kept us full all day! Staff was very nice.... More

Have just come back from a couple of nights stay in Davitts with my wife. Knew Kenmare well from many summers spent there years ago but never stayed in Davitts before. Davitts really is a first-class venue from arrival onwards - friendly staff; huge room - booked a double but it was a triple with a large en-suite bath/shower-room. Obviously... More

We stayed here for one night on our journey around the Ring of Kerry. We absolutely loved this place. The room was huge, modern, very clean, and comfortable. We didn't want to leave! The breakfast was amazing. The best breakfast out of the 3 other places we stayed. You had your choice of a full irish breakfast, eggs, pancakes, french... More

The rooms are above the bar/restaurant but we were not troubled by any noise. Rooms are large and comfortable. Breakfast staff were friendly and breakfast good. Only criticism would be at check in not a lot of information was given. This was probably as the staff also appeared to be working in the bar. Would stay again.
