“Very Good B & B in Kenmare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

We stayed in the Ard Na Mara for one night September 2012 and found it a good experience, including a lovely full Irish breakfast. The premises are bright, clean & tidy and the bedroom (with small en suite) was entirely adequate for the night. A large reception room is available to guests to relax in and has a good view over Kenmare Bay. The guest house owner is very pleasant and friendly,The town of Kenmare is only a short walk away, and staying at the guest house is very convenient to shops etc., Overall we had a very comfortable short stay, and would have no hesitation in recommending the accommodation to anyone.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front overlook Kenmare Bay.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2009

WE stayed for three nights at, Ard Na Mara as we were in Kenmare for the Horse Fair (15th August).The house was directly opposite Kenmare harbour with harbour views from the front,and,mountain views from the rear of the property.
The rooms weren't exactly as expected from what I'd seen on the website,but,they were very clean and,comfortable.The house seemed like a set from an early sixties James Bond set,a mini time warp.
Our hostess was a very welcoming german lady,who was helpful and,fed us well.The house was ideal for exploring Kerry.It was also just a five minute walk from Kenmare town,which is a lovely place.
We took a boat trip out into the bay to see seals and,dolphins.I felt that the trip was a little expensive,but,we enjoyed it.The boat is just a few minutes walk from the house.
Not the best b and b that we'd stayed in,but,I would stay there again due to it's location and,friendly hostess.
Can highly recommend the,Sailors Bar for food,amazing food at reasonable prices.
