The room was clean, with comfortable beds, however, the decor was a little dated, with a tiny TV. We were able to get Wi-Fi. The best thing about this place was the breakfast. We ordered the continental breakfast, it came with excellent tea & coffee, a plate with a small variety of sliced salmi and cheese slices, the pastries were... More

The best accommodation we had on our travels through Great Britain and Ireland, with great food to match. The hosts made us feel welcome from the start, and the accommodation provided us (family of 4) with two generous-sized, comfortable bedrooms and a huge bathroom. The breakfast, which was included in the fee, was excellent, and mine included a full Irish... More

Stopped here midday for a quick lunch. The chicken pie, Croque Madame and soup were great. And the dessert pastries were incredible. They also kept our water pitcher full as we went through them rapidly.

We enjoyed our stay at this B&B, the breakfast selection was great & the servings very generous, I would defiantly return to this B&B if we ever pass through Ireland again. Very good customer service & plenty of french treats to try if you wish!

Went here with some friends one morning. After 20minutes of sitting down waiting for our order to be taken (we were worse to wait) the rude host finally grunted at our responces for food. Another 1hour our breakfasts finally came, average food ruined by the worse hospitality ive ever seen! avoid, every where else in kenmare has better to offer.

We recently stayed at this quaint little B&B. The room was tidy and a nice size. The shower was fantastic! Easily the best shower I've had since we arrived in Ireland. The hosts were very friendly and informative. The food was very homely and exceptionally delicious. I'd recommend this to any traveller on a budget.

A good generous breakfast with excellent coffee and plenty of bread and toast, and what bread! Baguettes made on the premises must be the best I have ever had either in or out of France. The selection of patisserie is mouthwatering.Service is friendly and the prices very reasonable - we loved it. You can also buy the bread and cakes... More

Living locally, I've never stayed at the Rose Garden, but myself, family and friends are regulars at the small restaurant, as you couldn't find a better combination of food quality and value for money in all of South Kerry. Whether you're after a huge full Irish or a Continental breakfast including the tastiest pastries, freshly made daily by host and... More

Good B&B with exceptional French pastries all day long!! Hosts were very friendly and accommodating always enquiring after our day's outing. Breakfast food was excellent with typical French flair. Room was clean, tidy and comfortable. Hosts surprised us by drying some of our clothes while we were our one day - very thoughtful given the cool weather. Location is great... More
