“Fantastic!!!”
Reviewed October 18, 2011

I highly recommend Foley's Guesthouse. They even offered to let myself and my buddy play a set of music on their stage. You can't imagine how at-home that made us feel. Our trip to Ireland was that much better because we chose Foley's. The accommodations were clean, the food was great and the people warm and inviting! What more can you ask for??
Our next trip to Ireland will definitely include a (longer!) stay at Foley's. See you soon Patrick!

Room Tip: Call early and get the room of your choice!

We really enjoyed a three night stay at Foley's. The room was very clean. The food was excellent. The music was good in the bar. All round we had a wonderful few days. Kenmare is a lovely location and Foley's is right in the centre of town and is the perfect place to stay. The staff is very frendly and breakfast is delicious. We will definitely return to Foley's.

We had been hoping for a comfy room over a pub and that's just what we got. The service was friendly and helpful, the breakfasts were huge and delicious. The room was snug but not tight, the beds and bathroom were comfortable.There was a guitar player/singer who sang at night in the pub (sing-along Irish/American/English folk style). We could hear music from Foley's and other places from our room at night.

Kenmare is a beautiful town. It has plenty of restaurants of all types and is the perfect place from which to explore nearby spectacular sights. There's even a tourist office if you're in doubt about what to do.(Don't miss the Kissane sheep farm for a demonstration of sheep shearing and sheepdog handling.)

Room Tip: There are 2 floors of guest rooms. If you have trouble with stairs, ask for the lower of the 2 floor...

I phoned and made a reservation the day before I was due to stay here. I was quoted a price of 39e pp for bed and breakfast over the phone but when we arrived - they were asking a price of 45e per person. They handled the whole situation badly, very poor customer service

I personally took your phonecall & quoted you our price of EU45 p.p.sharing(EU90 for the Room) which included breakfast for the night of the 15th of August which is the busiest Market Day in Kenmare and it is also our peak season. On arrival you said that you were quoted EU39p.p .and you decided not to stayso then how then can you comment on our customer service. We provide an excellent town center accommodation, with fresh local home-cooked food and best of Irish music in Kenmare every night during the season.

Patrick served us a delicious authentic Irish breakfast each morning and even woke up early to make sure we got some food before we took off early on the last morning. Both nights there was live music downstairs and ended early so it didn't interrupt our sleep. This is a great place and we would definitely recommend staying here and Kenmare is a must!
