There's no good reason not to stay at Whispering Pines. It's less than a 5 minute walk from restaurants, pubs, shopping and all that Kenmare has to offer. Mary (the proprietor) is incredibly kind and the hospitality is first rate. The full Irish breakfast is fantastic - if you like fresh salmon you'll love it even more. The accommodations are... More

Mary and daughter Kathleen made us (2 couples) feel welcome as soon as we arrived. This genuine friendliness and interest was evident in all of our discussions with them. Restaurant suggestions and an early breakfast were happily provided. Mary even contacted us at our next B&B to notify us of a forgotten mobile phone which she then mailed to us... More

We happened upon this B&B after a long day of driving. Mary was so wonderful that, two years later, we planned our trip with an intentional stay at this B&B. It is absolutely delightful - and Mary is the picture perfect hostess.

I visited this B&B my first time in Ireland, and was ecstatic about it - location within walking distance of great shopping and restaurants; sparkling clean bathrooms; bedside lighting that one could actually read by; beautifully decorated; extra little touches like hair dryers in rooms and sachets in closets that show that a loving family runs this place. This time,... More

Mary and Kathleen (her cousin from the US) were just delightful. I think everything else could have been bad and we wouldn't have minded because they were so great. But everything else was great too. Nice comfortable room, lovely breakfast and a great location just outside the hub bub but quick and easy walking distance to town center. Highly recommend.

They shared useful information about the local area and were exceedingly well informed. Bedding was crisp and clean. Room was sparkling. Breakfast was delicious and served in an elegant manner. We loved... More

Stay here! You won't regret it. Lovely place, lovely hosts. Unique touches and wonderful food and service elvate this B & B above others. Exceptionally clean and quiet, despite being only minutes walk from Kenmare shopping.

So how wonderful is this? We arrive at Whispering Pines to be greeted by Mary, who becomes our instant friend. When we inquire about celiac-friendly restaurants, she immediately gets on the phone to her connection at the town's finest restaurant, Packie's, to make sure it will accommodate us, and she makes a reservation. Turns out the place was packed, so... More
