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.

We stayed in one of the self catering chalets with our dog. The chalet was clean, warm bright, spacious and very well equipped, there was nothing could be added. It is very close to the centre of Kenmare while at the same time quiet and well away from the noise of the bars and restaurants. While we stayed self catering... More

The host was very helpful & the breakfast was excellent. The rooms are large & clean. The location is great for walking to the restaurants ts & pubs. The sitting & dining rooms are downstairs & our room was up. It was a busy corner, but our room was quiet. The town of Kenmare was one of my favorites in... More

How often does the host crack an April Fools joke when you've just arrived? Mary joked with my wife that she was going to have to move me to a separate room and of course my wife went right along with it. She is a charming host. Our room and ensure bathroom was clean, the wifi worked (though maybe a... More

Like I wrote in 2014, nothing changed: the owner is nice, the room is clean, the food is great, the internet is working. We came late in the evening and because the owner was not there she left information for us where to go. We would come here again.

Came here with my mom on a cross-Ireland road trip. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable,and the breakfast was absolutely amazing, not to mention the hostess was so incredibly nice! Will come back if we have the chance!
