I stayed for two nights at Sheen View as part of a motorcycle tour of southern Ireland in August. Sadly, the weather was not good and when I arrived I was soaking wet. Amanda was fantastic and put my clothes and boots to dry ready for next morning. Breakfast was very enjoyable and certainly set you up for the next... More

We found the proprietors friendly and welcoming at this no frills B&B a ways outside Kenmare. I had hoped this would be a place where we could walk into town—realizing that the distance was at about the limit of what would be comfortable. Then we saw the road—a winding, narrow affair common in this area—and immediately decided that walking was... More

I wish I could give them more stars because they deserve more. This is the best B&B I have ever stayed in. My family and I stayed in two rooms. Amanda went above and beyond and I can't thank her enough. The accommodations were lovely and the breakfast were excellent. If we are ever in Kenmare again we will certainly... More

One of the nicest family B&Bs I've visited! Comfortably accommodated family of four in a lovely spacious room with private shower. Breakfast was stunning! Amanda & Peter are a wealth of local information - their dinner and exploring options were a hit and exactly what we needed. We'll definitely be back!

Amanda definitely knows how to welcome people... Her house is warm and her help and advice are valuable (especially after a wet day of cycling). We left her place with a bigsmile and wished we could have stayed longer. Merci!
