“Great location - and staff”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Stayed here for two nights recently - and would recommend this place as a great centre and location for exploring this region. Good wholesome breakfast served here sets one up for the day.
And reasonable tariff also.

Room Tip: We stayed in room number one - and it was to our satisfaction all round.

Great location, have to accept that there is music and noise until midnight due to being bang in the center of things. There was no personal attention or service, apart from one girl serving us breakfast who was very friendly. We had a question with the WiFi Code as it was wrong in the guestbook, the response we got was discourteous and was frustrating that we didn't even know who the manager was to discuss this issue.

Dear Baeten Family

Thank you for taking the time for providing the feedback on your stay at Foleys. The location is great. Foleys is a busy pub/restaurant/guesthouse and while our live music is enjoyable to the majority of our guests we do apologise if it disturbed your stay. Unfortunately, we had just upgraded our WiFi , and had not changed it on our guest book. We sincerely apologise if our staff were unhelpful or appeared rude and we have spoken to our team about your experience.

Best regards,
Pat Foley,Manager

We were very satisfied with our stay at Foley's Guesthouse in Kenmare. It is located on the main tourist street in Kenmare, making it ideal for window shopping and pub hopping. It is also a great launch point for the rings of Kerry or Bantry. The service was good, as was the breakfast.

We stayed in Ardmullen Manor house for the week starting May 25th. After arriving at our unit, we found that we were given a three bedroom rather than a four bedroom which we booked. One phone call, and we were promptly in our new 4 bedroom house in less than 10 minutes.
The house was clean and very well equipped with modern appliances, and everything you needed to make yourself at home. Our house had a couple of minor problems, which we reported, and they were fixed within hours. Now that is what I call service! Honestly, we didn't really expect the problems to be fixed during our stay, but we wanted to make the owners aware. To our surprise, one of the owners even stopped by to make sure we were comfortable, and that everything was okay.
The location was great to use a base for touring. Although it is not located right in the downtown area, it was a very nice 10 to 15 minute stroll to all the shops, restaurants, pubs and even some tourist attractions as well as the tourist bureau. There was a good supply of brochures for guests to peruse, as well as a binder providing all the information you needed from how to take the shortcut to the market, to how to use the satellite television and all the appliances.
If you are looking for a worry free place for your family and friends to stay, I highly recommend Foley's Ardmullen Manor houses.

Room Tip: Great base for exploring south & south western Ireland

Didn't have a reservation but we got a room here - very reasonably priced at 35euro pp for bed & full irish breakfast. Nicely decorated rooms and lovely staff. We had an enormous bed in our room. One word of warning though if you plan on going to bed early do not take room 6 - the band (and they were good) kept us awake until 12.30 !! But in fairness normally we would have been up and in the pub at this time! We had our dinner here - mussels in white wine followed by and quiche & salad. Very nice ! Would stay here again. Very centrally located.

Thank you for taking the time to respond and your very positive comments.

Foley's town centre location is ideally situated and we are sorry that our Traditional Music kept you up a little longer that you wanted. Hopefully next time you visit you will be in the bar enjoying the music.

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.
