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.

Arrived at hotel with REI group after a long and fun day of hiking. NO hot water. Even waited 2 hours after checking in to shower ... And you guessed it no hot water. Took a cold washcloth sponge bath out of sink- no other choice after a days hike in rain, sun,bogs and sheep dung covered hillsides. Really Davitts?... More

Its the first time this has happened us. We had Thunder & Lightening on the evening that you were to arrive & as we have 3 Boilers it knocked out 1 so when you all arrived we had not sufficient water for everyone. We had a plumber straight away & water was back at 10pm. I explained this to all... More

Fantastic location in the middle of town rooms were very modern and we had a great nights sleep, we were towards the back end of the building. Room was spacious and spotless.. Breakfast was delicious and we found all the staff we met were so friendly and relaxed! Couldn't make a reservation for dinner as there were two large groups... More

I stayed in Davitts between 26th-29th September 2014. It's a very nice guesthouse, located right in the heart of Kenmare, so it's conveniently located for restaurants and pubs. They have a nice breakfast each morning, the bedroom was cleaned daily and the service was friendly. I was very happy with my stay there.

Again a very enjoyable stay. Everything other reviewers have said is true and I love coming back each year. I would highly recommend this guesthouse to anyone travelling alone like me as it has everything to hand, fabulous restaurant downstairs if you are not happy to go out at night and is very secure and safe. Everyone is very friendly... More
