We stayed at the Driftwood and it was the only B and B we stayed at during our time in Ireland.. It was far better than the two hotels in Galway and Dublin in every way! When my sister needed to see a doctor for a serious injury, Mignonne immediately gave me the name of her own physician and had... More

Stayed for a few days while touring around the Ring of Kerry. Peter and Mignonne were excellent hosts. The room was very clean and just the right size for two people. They gave us options for breakfast each morning and they didn't disappoint. The B&B was just a 10-15 minute walk to the downtown. I would certainly recommend to anyone... More

Rooms are spacious, comfortable with the basic amenities. Room in back and had nice little balcony. The hostess was exceptional!! Friendly, helpful and even shared her brown bread recipe. Breakfast was all quality. Nice place to stay if visiting Kenmare.

I would agree with other reviews in that the rooms were clean and well furnished with large comfortable beds and wonderfully clean linen. Peter provides a good breakfast and both he and his wife gave us excellent recommendations for exploring the Ring of Kerry. we went as far as Valentia Island and then doubled back to this B&B and that...

Peter and Mignonne were so lovely to me when I stayed there. I lost my purse when I was out and they personally went around the town to find it for me. It was handed in somewhere and everything was still in it! How kind and honest of everyone concerned, thank you so much. I thought Driftwood had such a... More

This was the only B&B that we stayed 2 nights at and we were so glad we did. We loved the city of Kenmare but more importantly loved Peter the host. He gave great recommendations and we say a lot due to his recommendations. He also provided maps and brochures for us that we found very helpful. The breakfast was... More

My husband and I stayed at Driftwood for one night en route from Dingle to Kinsale. The B/B is a short stroll from the pretty little town of Kenmare. Our room was spacious and tastefully decorated and provided all the necessary amenities. MIgnon grew up in the area and was a wealth of information for suggesting all the "must sees".... More

This was a great stop. A longish walk out of town but quiet. The house itself is modern and spacious with a nice lounge to sit in and lovely breakfasts. We were given maps a nd suggestions for the next leg of our journey which was most welcome. Nothing like insights from locals. We would thoroughly recommend Driftwood and would... More

There is alot of choice in Kenmare, but ours was not a disappointment. A bed and breakfast oozing with style and quality. Peter and Minogne (sorry if I spelt it wrong!) were so kind and could not have been more accommodating and helpful. We really felt at home as the villa was comfortable and very stylish. Having been to Louis... More

We stayed at Driftwood last week while on our honeymoon, and were so thrilled that we did. Peter and Mignonne were absolutely wonderful hosts, and made us feel right at home. Our room was spotless and perfectly sized. Every room in the B&B had a breathtaking view, including our room. Breakfast was amazing, from the eggs and bacon to the... More
