Shelburne Lodge
Ranked #5 of 61 Kenmare B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 16, 2012

The Shelburne Lodge and Moira and Tom made our two day stay in Kenmare delightful. Comfortable sitting room with a cozy fire was perfect for a rainy morning, excellent full Irish breakfast with lots of gourmet choices served in a beautiful dining room, lovely furnishings and art all contribute to a real Irish manor house experience. Walking distance to Kenmare and Tom and Moira's suggestions for dinners were great!!! Best meal of the trip at The Horseshoe Pub and its chef owner's great food.

Just an all round good experience. Irish hospitality at it's best. Will visit again (hopefully). Nothing was too much trouble. If we could get all tourists to sample this sort of stay then the tourist industry would be in a better place. Even enjoyed Tom's stories of Munster rugby!

Wonderful hospitality. Booked out all the rooms as we were in kenmare for a family wedding. Rooms were lovely and the breakfasts were fantastic. Everyone in our party kept commenting on what a super find this guest house was. Would not hesitate to recommend this gorgeous place. Thanks to all for a wonderful stay!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Shelburne Lodge while in Kenmare. This beautiful home has an interesting history and is well appointed and comfortable. Breakfasts were plentiful and delicious-restaurant quality! Thank you to our hosts for taking the time to talk to us about the Kenmare area and assist us in making plans. Great golf course just across the road.

Tom and Maura were the most gracious hosts. They welcomed us, and were very helpful with activity and eating suggestions. Breakfast was generous and delicious with plenty of choices. The room was quite large and cheery. The town center is a short walk, with plenty of places for food, drink and music. We visited the Kenmare Stone Circle on the west side of town. A dolmen grave is in the center, and the whole green is ringed by a hedge of trees. (A Witch's tree is on the edge of the stone circle -- do NOT harm it, or the prayer papers that might be attached. You might offer one of your own -- as I did, since I was driving those roads.)

Room Tip: The grounds and gardens are nice, so there are several good views. (A pheasant was prowling the und...

We had such an amazing stay @ the Shelburne; not only is the house beautiful but Maura and Tom were absolutely lovely. The food was delicious (Maura is a chef!) and tea by the fireplace I still think of often, with a smile. Highly recommended to anyone looking to stay in Kenmare and/or driving the Ring of Kerry.
