Valhalla is the most wonderful B&B and earns 5+ stars. Why? - Valhalla is Jens and Barry and they are the best hosts you can imagine: they are welcoming & heartful and love perfection (you can see this in every detail of Valhalla), they take time to find the best tips for your trips. In short: they both live being Valhalla-B&B-hosts - Breakfast made with love even with self-made bread, banana bread and jam… - Welcome package with water, coffee, tea and small snack in our room - The interior design of the rooms are perfectly thought through – you won’t miss a detail – clean of course - Awesome view on the Bay you can enjoy from some rooms and tastefully furnished living room - Perfectly located to explore the ring of Kerry and surroundings. Thank you Jens and Barry for making our Ireland holiday to a perfect one! Our 3-night stay was way to short and we certainly will come back!

Just far enough from the busy town of Kenmare, yet close enough for a meal and night out. Hosts, Barry and Jen were fantastic, their warm welcome, local knowledge on places to see whilst driving the ring of kerry, their home has beautiful appointed rooms including a seperate living area with ever changing views, dining for breakfast and lovely gardens. Breakfast is well catered for everyone’s appetite. Could have easily stayed for longer, but unfortunately our travel plans didn’t allow us. Don’t hesitate in booking, you won’t be disappointed.

Our highlights: a 5-star hotel quality bed, a majestic picture window in the guest's sitting room overlooking Kenmare bay and a wrapped slice of cake to bring home (homemade blueberry lime rain cake). Barry and Jens were wonderful hosts who could not have been more accommodating to our needs. This is a beautiful B&B. We only wished we could stay longer.

Valhalla B&B sits in a acre of garden 10 kilometers west of Kenmare. Barry and Jens spent 6 months painting and repairing before opening in the summer of 2018. Everything is immaculately clean and precise. Beds were a bit hard for my taste but just right for my wife and the linens were exquisite. The home is ecclectically furnished with art from their frequent travels. Far more like a home thanking B&Bs. Breakfast was excellent, especially the coffee but not a full Irish unless you specify. The day we had to leave at 7, they were up and ready for us. The one fault is the bedroom walls are thin so no showers or music after 10 pm. Fine by me. And B and J are foodies so great guides to the very good restaurants in Kenmare and on the neighboring Beara Peninsula.

Hi John, Thanks for the review. Just to clarify for readers, we do not offer an Irish breakfast, even on request. As per booking.com it is a full continental breakfast only. Happy travels, Barry and Jens
