Really enjoyed my stay in the Brass Lantern. An older lady checked us in and was so lovely. Rooms are incredibly spacious and absolutely spotless. Bed Linen was lovely and we had a great nights sleep. It is only a couple minutes walk to the town. Highly recommend this place, my only thing that I would say needs improving is... More

We were at Brass Lantern for 2 nights and had 2 rooms for our family of five which worked well. Walkable 1/2 distance to town center for restaurants and shops. Excellent location to access Ring of Kerry route. Consistent wifi in rooms helpful for my 21 year old to keep up with her online college classes. Staff were very knowledgeable,... More

This is an update. I was feeling like this place was really awful upon my arrival. My sense, after staying 2 nights, is that the owner is overwhelmed and the young girl helping out is undertrained. The breakfast was good and they were all very nice. The financial arrangement (where they want all of the payment before you sleep there)... More

This b&b was a great find. There is free onsite parking off the road which is safe and secure. It is only a 3 minute walk into the centre of Kenmare which gives it the added benefit of being quiet at night. The house has a nice open living area where breakfast is served. The rooms are large, comfortable and... More

I could not recommend this b&b more. I'm just back from a hen night and the service we recieved was second to none here at the brass lantern. Its only a 5min walk from the town centre! The room was great, very warm and cosy and was also quite big! The shower was lovely and the bed was very comfortable!... More

Acceptable for an overnight stay. Room was large with 1 double bed and 1 twin. Bathroom was clean but small. The TV was tiny, I haven't seen a TV like that in 10 years. Breakfast was good and the service was friendly.

Just walked off the street and asked to see the room. So surprised at how big the room was and better value too than the one a few doors down. Had excellent wifi in room 6 and room 5 would also be strong as above the router. Very friendly service with all that we dealt with. Even had some gluten-free... More
