We stayed (3 of us) at Sheila and Sam's place for four nights in May 2014. We had two upstairs rooms and shared a bathroom which was perfect for us. Great location and the breakfasts were fantastic. Also, they both provided some great tourist information, even making phone calls for us to help out with bookings. Thanks to Sheila and... More

Sam and Sheila go out of their way to ensure you are completely satisfied. Their dog, Casper, sold me on this booking. Casper is a quiet and laid back friend that greets every guest with kindness. The accommodations are excellent, the bathroom even came with a heated towel rate...ahhh nice touch. Breakfast was fantastic with many choices. Sam and Sheila's... More

My husband and I were fortunate to spend an evening at the Forgefield House in September. Sam and Sheila are superb hosts, they honestly could not be nicer! We arrived late in the afternoon on a Saturday after a busy first day in Ireland and were greeted by Sam, Sheila and their delightful dog. We were given a spacious, bright... More

Luxury & comfortable king sized bed Excellent value for money CONS; No shower screen so bathroom can get a bit of water spray.

We stayed for two nights while visiting the ROK. We chose it based on TA reviews for B&B’s near Kenmare. It is close to town, but not walking distance. The hosts were friendly and welcoming and responded quickly to my booking and confirmation emails. The entire B&B was comfortable and spotless and nicely decorated. Wi-fi worked well. We had a...

It's readily apparent why this is the number 1 B&B in Kenmare. Sam and Sheila are absolutely wonderful hosts who when we weren't sure if we wanted to drive the Ring of Kerry recommended the Beara Peninsula instead which was absolutely perfect. The Irish breakfast was the most delicious of our trip and the room was spacious and light. They... More

Stayed one night here and found the room spacious and clean. The second floor room had a lovely view out a large half dome window. Hosts are gracious and friendly. Kenmare is a nice town to explore and Forgefield House is a good place to stay while doing it!

The Forgefield House is very clean, and Sheila and Sam are wonderful hosts. We arrived on our first day in Ireland to the Forgefield House, and Sheila prepared my wife and I tea. Both her and her husband are good conversationalists, and after a few minutes you can speak with them as if you have been friends together for years.... More

We booked ForgeField based on the reviews here and how right everyone was! Sheila and Sam are the most wonderful hosts and theri friendly and welcoming manner is reflected in the way they run their B&B. We were welcomed with tea and biscuits in the dining room so we got to enjoy the views straight away. Our room was spotless... More

I swear that Sam & Sheila stayed in our room until they had perfected it! They thought of every detail to make you comfortable, including actually USING your towel warmer instead of just storing towels on it like everyone else, so you stepped out of the hot and forceful shower into the embrace of a cozy towel. The sheets were... More
