There were 3 us that stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment for 2 nights. It is a wonderful place to stay, about 5 mins outside of town. You could walk to town if you would like, but there is plenty of parking if you wanted to drive. The staff at Foleys was excellent. They were very nice and accommodating. I... More

We found Foley's a great place to stay during our passing visit to Kenmare and Kerry. The food was as good as we have had before and found the range of real ales and whiskey has increased. The double room we had was clean and quiet enough to allow us to have a good night's sleep although the view was... More

Having stayed in Kenmare with friends on many occasions we were delighted to experience the excellent Kerry hospitality provided in Foleys Guesthouse in Kenmare, and would be very happy to stay there again and to recommend it to all our families, friends and acquaintances. Although I am not vegetarian I would strongly recommend the vegetarian omelette for breakfast - it... More

We didn't stay in Foley's but, we went there to dine for most of our stay in Kenmare. The staff were absolutely brilliant and couldn't do enough for us. Service was great no matter how busy it was and the food was gorgeous.

Foley's guesthouse was a fun place in Kenmare. The staff was great with the kids and the food excellent. The first night the live music was a bit over amplified but not so much that the kids didn't fall asleep. On the secound night it's was at a nice quiet level and didn't inconvenience. Breakfast was filling and delicious and... More

We stayed on July 14 and 15 and had a great time the staff is friendly and helpful and the pub was fun! Good music with Pat also! The rooms were very clean and comfortable. If we return to Ireland this will be one of our stops again! Kenmare is a beautiful town.

We booked a night at Foley's. In three places their advertising says free parking.. it is actually on the main street and only free after 4pm. It said trad Irish music - all we heard from 9pm to 12.30 am was a synthesised drum backing track (the same one) thumping though our room. It had the finesse of a carousel... More

We stayed at the self catering townhouse for 6 weeks. The home was extremely clean, spacious and well equipped and Marion and Patrick did everything to make our stay comfortable, special and friendly. No request was too big and they are just lovely people. We loved having a washer/dryer and wi fi was great and the fireplace is a nice... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. The owner and staff were friendly and always willing to assist. The room was better than we were expecting which was a pleasant surprise. The location is right in the middle of one of the main streets in town which puts everything within walking distance. We would definitely stay here again.
