“Very nice!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

Proprietor - Siobhan O'Sullivan - a quiet but very nice lady. A bit chilly in our room but it was a rainy cold day, Very clean and nice place. A pleasant short stroll into town (over the bridge and down the lane)

This was the only negative experience in our travels thru Ireland. The mattress was just unbelievably lumpy. Also, there was no warm water in the evening or the next morning.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2011

I stayed here with friends for one night, on a motorcycle trip around Ireland. Kenmare is a beautiful town, situated where two peninsulas meet. We arrived after a long day of travelling, and were made to feel very welcome by the owner (a superb craftswoman who made much of the lace which decorates the house). The Lodge was purpose-built as a guesthouse and was only a few minutes' walk from town (with excellent restaurants). Clean and comfortable, with a personal touch.

Hint: we decided to travel around the Ring of Beara (the peninsula to the south) rather than the more famous Ring of Kerry. Every bit as spectacular, but with twistier roads and no tour coaches!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2011

The guesthouse is located right off the main street which is nice if you want to get some sleep. It felt like a mountain lodge. It was very clean and the rooms were a good size. The beds were comfortable and the breakfast was cooked to order. The owner is very sweet. I will warn those that the place is very quiet and you can hear doors open and close. Overall a good stay in Kenmare. One big plus is it is located right next to the Ring of Kerry.
