Stayed for 2 nights with family . Great location - an easy stroll to fantastic restaurants and Main Street shops. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Rooms large and comfortable . Breakfast fresh and served with a smile. Kenmare is a beautiful town and a must see for those touring Ireland .

Kenmare is a lovely town, the perfect location for visiting the Ring of Kerry. The room, staff and breakfast were excellent! It is a nice quiet location, with a short walk into town. Would come back again! The staff were friendly and very accommodating.
