“Home Sweet Home”

My son and I were fortunate to have stayed in this wonderful home. Communicating with the ladies at The White Room (booked through) was excellent. They were very helpful with restaurant and touring suggestions. We found free parking across the street every day. The house contained 2 very comfortable bedrooms and each were very spacious. In fact, the whole house is quite spacious. It is laid out on four floors and decorated beautifully. We enjoyed having a fire on many occasions and even cooked a meal on one of our nights. We bought lamb from the local butchers and the kitchen was very well equipped.
Most evenings we enjoyed the local restaurants; Packie's, Mulcahys, Davitts, The Breadcrumb and even did a fish n chip take out from Whartons. There are many amazing selections of great foods in Kenmare and all within a stone throw of the house. Crowley's is a great local pub to pop in to after dinner.
We certainly found Kenmare and the Shelbourne townhouse a perfect location for exploring all that Kerry has to offer. We would highly recommend staying here. A trip we shall always remember....Amazing!

Just spent a week at Shelbourne Townhouse and loved it. Charming house, great location with easy back garden access to Henry Street. Great to have lots of wood and peat available for the 2 fireplaces. Very clean with lots of nice
touches. The staff at The White Room(where you check in) were extremely gracious and helpful.

“Nicely furnished and good location”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

person found this review helpful

We stayed in the house at the height of the tourist season in July. The house is just off the main drag, which does provide for a little less traffic noise. The house is 250 years old. There are three floors and three flights of stairs that you definitely have to use. The bedroom on the top floor as three beds and was quite cozy, with roof top windows and a view of the church steeple. The main bedroom on the second floor was nicely furnished with a comfortable, but a little on the hard side mattress. The kitchen was in the basement, which was walkout to a patio. It also had everything you needed.
The house does not have its own parking, but there is a free lot across the street. Since it was the busy season we did have a slight problem finding parking one night. The house is on the Ring of Kerry so although quaint, this is a very busy town. We found it to be a nice location.
You do have to pay separately for the WiFi if you want it, 16 euros and an additional fee if you downloaded too much off the Internet. We paid twice that amount for our downloads. The TV had limited channels but we did not watch it anyway.
The property owner was very nice

“Excellent home in the heart of Kenmare”
Reviewed November 4, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

person found this review helpful

We stayed at the Shelbourne Townhouse for a week in late September, early October 2012. We checked in at The White Room, a linen store in Kenmare, whose owner also owns the townhouse. Although we were never able to actually meet the owner herself, we were well treated by staff at the store. The house is lovely, although tall and very narrow. This meant one room per floor...living/sitting room on the main floor entered through the front door, master bedroom and hallway bathroom up one flight from the main floor, and kitchen/dining area down one flight from the main floor, leading out into the rear garden and an alleyway. There is also a second bedroom at the very top of house, with twin beds and a futon. The stairway was curved and tucked into one corner of the home. My wife had to be very careful walking up and downstairs as the treads curved and at times were quite narrow. Multiple floors and stairways notwithstanding, the home is lovely and well maintained. Coming in the late fall as we did, we were a little chilly at times, as we didn't want to stand the expense of having the oil heat on 24/7. But we simply put on a sweater and were just fine. The main draw for us was the location...right at the top of the town and easy walking distance from all points in Kenmare. Our week's stay was very enjoyable.
