Bright large room very clean with comfortable bed. Best breakfast for a long time cooked fresh and to order served by very friendly staff. Very nice bar with a decent pint. Great location in the centre of town and close to all amenities

1 night stay. The plus for this hotel is that its staff are excellent so the service is great. Also very clean hotel although there seemed to be a bit of a stale smell in the bar so we declined the opportunity to eat there. Our biggest disappointment was the room . To say we took a step back In... More

This is a great place to stay in Kenmare. The location is perfect, the breakfasts are great and the staff is wonderful. Our waitress at breakfast even sang us an Irish song. The pub is lively and reasonably priced

Our third night in Kenmare and we had a meal in the bar/dining room of the Lansdowne Arms Hotel. Clearly there were locals drinking and dining here because only one Aussie (us) and an American accent could be heard. The service was friendly and prompt, our food, a seafood pancake and the Irish Stew, were piping hot and delicious. The... More

I have stayed in this hotel many times and I always have the same great experience. What the hotel lacks in mod cons is definitely made up for in terms of helpfulness and friendliness of staff. Also breakfast is wonderful. No lining up for half cold buffet style breakfast here! Breakfast is served on hot plates and plenty of it.... More

Visited for a night of live Irish music and dancing. 3 kids and a bloke with a guitar, it was a bit Irish but only just, no sound system so very hard to see or hear anything as also quite cramped. The food was served hot but had been kept hot a little too long, goujons over done and a... More

Breakfast and the front desk service at this hotel absolutely will not disappoint. This hotel is conveniently located on the main strip, near plenty of shopping and pubs aplenty. There’s also a lot of shopping on that street for you to find all of the souvenirs you’ll need. Aoife at the front desk is delightful and ever so helpful—she was... More

Wonderful hospitality! We needed to depart before breakfast, and the staff laid out a beautiful continental breakfast just for my family! The facility is charming and the live music in the evening was very enjoyable. We would return in a heartbeat.

We stayed on the second floor, which I would recommend. The staff was friendly and warm and accommodating. We ate breakfast every morning - decent selection to choose from and we ate dinner there a couple of nights as well. Food was decently priced and the portions were good and delicious. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable, great water... More

Kenmare is a charming small coastal town in the South West or Ireland, with loads of character & views. It is a town that we have visited on holiday many time and have grown to love, for its people, its leisurely pace of life and its every character! We consider it like 'coming home'! The Lansdowne Arms is an old... More
