A little hard to find, but really great. There are only 4 rooms here, and it's a really quiet, nice place. The hostess made us a very nice breakfast in the morning. Only a short stroll (10 minutes) into main Kenmare town (which is a little bigger than I was expecting). Would be a great place for a multi-night stay.... More

Of our 7 day stay in South Ireland, Watersedge was our favorite place! Noreen could not have been any sweeter. The town is just a 10 minute walk from the driveway. Breakfast was wonderful. My daughter and I had the home smoked salmon, AMAZING! You can tell that the owner takes great pride in the home and hosting guests! We... More

Stayed 3 nights at Watersedge. Beautiful location, great host and breakfast and comfortable room. Would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Kenmare. Not right in town but close enough you could walk if you wanted. Free parkkng by the church in Kenmare made parking easy.

This B&B is a little outside of town, but you can walk to city center within 5-10 minutes. The owners are wonderful and welcoming and has a view of the river. The breakfast was delicious and traditional. The B&B is clean but is showing a little wear. If you're not interested in an expensive Boutique Hotel, then this is a... More

Stayed for just one night. Hostess was friendly. The cooked breakfast wasn't the best and options are limited. The shower lost pressure when someone else was using the water and towels wouldn't fit round a barbie doll. Having said all that the town is lovely and the view that we woke up to made up for the shortcomings .

I would like first to thank these guests for leaving a review, as it is very helpful to other people who are planning their trip to Ireland. I would like to assure future visitors to Watersedge that I provide 3 towels per person: 1 bath towel, 1 hand towel and 1 face cloth (these are standard size). Also I would... More

Watersedge is a beautiful place to stay. From our room we had a view of the mountains on the ring of kerry. The beds were just as comfortable as my own and the place was spotless. Noreen and her dog gypsy were wonderful! If I ever go back to Ireland I will definitely stay there again.

My daughter and I recently had the pleasure of staying 2 nights at Watersedge. Noreen is one of the best people I've met in my life. We had a beautiful vacation in Ireland for 2 weeks and our only regret is that we did not book the Watersedge B&B the entire week we were in that part of the country,... More

Noreen was kind enough to accommodate us even though she was technically closed for the season! We had a beautiful room looking out over the water and mountains, absolutely gorgeous. Food was delicious and Noreen was incredibly sweet. Best shower I had the entire trip, very clean and well-appointed rooms. Highly recommend this b&b!

Finding it slightly difficult to locate a b&b which was still open at the end of October, we were pleased to find that the owner was able to provide us with a room for the night. Noreen is obviously a busy lady with a young family, and while it would have been nice to sit down and have a chat... More

The hostess is very nice, the rooms are excellent and the breakfast is great. Especially the bathroom is amazing and very clean. Beds are comfortable and the view from the room is nice. We had a pleasant stay at Waters Edge and enjoyed it very much. We will certainly stay here again.
