This was a one night stay before our Ring of Kerry trip. The room was comfortable, but the shower was small which worked for us, though might be tight for some folks. We ate dinner in the pub, and the food was great! The breakfast was good, as was the service, so we were on our way in no time.... More

We spent 3 nights at O'Donnabain's guest house- they were great nights! The room was big, the beds were great! It is in the heart of Kenmare town, so everything is very walkable. The breakfast was the best we had in Ireland, and the staff were fantastic! Everything we wanted to do in this area of Ireland was very close,... More

We loved this place! I was traveling with my 80-yr old mom and my sister, so we wanted to be in close walking proximity to town and called this B&B after the one we booked we realized was much further of a walk than had been described. The owner was fabulous, helped take our bags to the 3rd floor and... More

Our family stayed at the detached apartment across the road from O'Donnabhain's. We were pleased that the apartment was clean, modern and very comfortable. The carpeting and furnishings appeared to be very new and clean. Our apartment had a dining table, living room with television, kitchen, refrigerator, two showers and two bedrooms with television. The apartment had a washer-dryer combination... More

Stopped here for food and some music. Great service from friendly staff. Food was good but maybe a little overpriced for what you get. Overall very pleasant. We enjoyed a bit of music on Wed night and took a walk afterwards around Kenmare town

When we arrived they told us the rooms are all booked but they can offer an appartment for a fair price but without breakfast. The appartment is near the Pub and on the first seen it looked nice. The appartment included one room with an own kitchen and a nice looking bathroom. We were happy about that. The things needed... More

We enjoyed our stay at O'Donnabhains. Nice breakfast. Comfortable "spacious" rooms. Great having easy access to pub downstairs with live Irish music. We found parking out front, but could be more difficult during busier tourist times.

Food was mediocre at best, expensive for what we had and the service was not much better. We have eaten here a good few times before but not since last year and were really looking forward to a good feed after our day trip. Food quality down, prices put up. Rip off Ireland is back.

Expected a generous helping of wholesome Irish food but ended up still hungry and really disappointed. Nice bar pleasant staff but the food is mediocre and portions small. Music is done attraction but overall disappointing.
