“Maison de vacances”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Holiday house at No. 20 Ard Mullen Kenmare in a quiet neighborhood. A recent house very well equipped. The shops are nearby. We go to 5 people and the quality is as described in the announcement of the site. We had an exellent stay for our first trip to Ireland. There are many things to see in the region, and we intend to return. Irish people are very welcoming.
We were very well received in the Foley's Pub, we would have liked a manual in French.
I highly recommend this house.

The only negative point is the method of payment by the site "reseliva.com" which is not very easy to use, but it happens anyway.
and WIFI is not functional damage.

I put one of our 9 out of 10.

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in our Ardmullen Holiday Homes and that you enjoyed Kenmare. Our Holiday Homes are in a perfect location for touring the region. We work very hard to ensure the quality is maintained and that all visitors to Foley's Pub are welcomed for dinner, a drink or just a chat.

Thank you also for your comments on reseliva and the Wi Fi - both of which have been addressed.

Great suggestion for the manuals to be in other languages, we will put these in place, so that when you return you will see them.

Many thanks.

Placed in the middle of the town and only few problems finding a parking place. Our room had windows towards the living street. We enjoyed our stay. The room was nice and our breakfast fine. If we come this way again we'll probably go for Foleys.

We are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us - always great to hear. As Kenmare is a lively town, parking on the main streets during the day is busy but there are car parks within a few minutes walk of Foley's. Thank you for taking the time to review your stay.

We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Foley`s is a nice and cosy B&B on a good location in Kenmare. We stayed there on our round trip in The Ring of Kerry. In the evening at the Foley`s bar we had the best experience of Irish folkmusic on our visit in Ireland this time. Also breakfast was good at the Foley`s

Foley's is ideally situated being that it is in the centre of Kenmare, on the Ring of Kerry and as we aim to offer great Traditional Irish music, we are delighted that you had a great visit and enjoyed your stay.

Thank you for your comments.

Good food. Great breakfast. Our room was over the dining room & after we went to bed the music went on. Not for those wanting a quiet night. We also looked over a flat roof with a view of the washing. Anyway- we love Kenmare.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the main entertainment area-unless you want to join the revellers.

Thank you for taking time to pass on your comments and we are delighted that you enjoyed our food and accommodation. We do have live music every night throughout the season but we try to ensure that it does not finish too late for our guests. Our accommodation is ideal for guests who wish to stay in Kenmare Town and have utilised all the ground that we have to provide airy and spacious rooms.

Thanks again.

We stayed here in the off season and it was one of our favorite places. The location could not be more convenient for exploring the sweet town of Kenmar. The couple that runs the place were so nice. Because it was the off season they were able to join us for breakfast where we sat and enjoyed much conversation. The property is quaint and full of charm. The room was nicely decorated, clean and had a comfortable bed. We will definitely be staying here when we return in the near future.

Room Tip: Choose a room that faces the street. Nice view and bigger room.

Thank you for your kind comments, we enjoy chatting to our guests whenever we have the time and during the off season we have more time to sit and get to know our visitors to Kenmare. Foley's has been providing accommodation for over two decades and is very traditional.

We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Foley's is a wonderful place to stay in Kenmare. The owner greeted us with a pot of tea and scones. Our room was lovely. We had a wonderful evening meal in the bar while being entertained with traditional Irish music which we and a large group of travelers from Sweden found most enjoyable. A fine full Irish breakfast before we departed. Looking forward to a return visit.

Foley's is a great place to stay in Kenmare whether you're just stopping overnight or staying for a while. The staff are very friendly and the food is great, especially the "Full Irish Breakfast" that is served every morning. The pub comes alive every night with Irish music provided usually by local musicians and the bar serves up a mighty fine selection of Ireland's best ales and whiskies. The location, right in the heart of Kenmare, makes it easy to explore the town on foot. You won't be dissapointed.
