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

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

My first impression of the hotel was good as it had a great location & looked nice from the outside. I should have walked away when we went in to find out the cost & they told us it was 70 euro per person (there were 2 of us). Why do hotels do this? Makes no sense to me. The... More

After a lengthy visit touring all the major peninsulas of South West Ireland we found the lovely village of Kenmare, in Kerry, and the Lansdowne Arms Hotel. This is one of the nicest places we stayed on our trip. Anne at reception was especially welcoming and all her recommendations were spot on. The room was spacious and comfortable. The breakfast...
