Stayed only one night but this would be a good location for sidetrips. Clean comfortable room. Parking in the back of the B&B. Mary was so welcoming and helpful. Location is perfect just off the main street. Breakfast was very nice.

We stayed with Mary in 2014. We didn't anticipate traveling to Kenmare but when we did we stopped at Hawthorn House. Mary was so pleasant. We told her we were looking for two nights, she only had one available so she put us in the Honeymoon Suite. Such a beautiful spot, awesome workmanship and very private. Couldn't have been more...

Had a good stay here. Nice location, just a minute or two from main streets, but on a more quiet street. Breakfast was good, but started a bit late (and I was given no information about start time). Parking behind the building, which is nice

Clean friendly knotty pine room and decor only adds to Mary's warm welcome and hospitality. While there only one night it was centrally located right in town. Breakfast was hand made, nice and started us on our way. Good, clean bnb.

We can definitely recommend Hawthorne house in Kenmare. Perfectly situated at the top of the main street. Mary was so friendly and the place had perfect parking at the rear of place for our motorbike. The room was lovely and clean and the breakfast was just right.

My wife, myself, our 18 year old daughter and 12 year old son stayed in an upstair apartment. The apartment was clean and roomy, minute's walk from all the town's amenities yet not close enough to be interrupted by the noise of those sitting outside the numerous restaurants and bars. We had a great time.

My wife and I stayed at Hawthorn in July 2016 and loved it. The house is very comfortable and centrally located. Easy parking in the lot behind the house. Breakfast was very very good and the staff were extremely friendly. Highly recommended if you're staying in Kenmare.

For ease in getting around Kenmare, this is the place to stay. Parking was available in the back of the property, on a busy street. It was quiet at night in the back of the building. Our room was very large. Wifi was very iffy in our room, but worked well downstairs.

Location, location, location. Right in the centre of town, park the car and enjoy Kenmare, with its quality restaurants and watering holes etc. Plenty of parking space, a clean, comfortable and spacious room, a friendly and helpful hostess and a decent breakfast. This place is excellent value for money and is often full, so pre booking is advisable.

Room was large and comfortable. Great location and right in town. Mary is the wonderful owner and made us feel welcome. Breakfast was excellent. This was a very comfortable B and B and we would definitely stay here again. Kenmare is a nice location to do two ring drives and it not as busy as Killarney.
