It was our 2nd Visit To this wonderful House.
It was just as i remembered. Mary could not have been more welcoming,polite,friendly and making you feel at home.
We stayed in the lodge next door. What a place !, Huge,bright, and clean rooms with enormous ensuite shower/Bathroom. huge comfy beds, lots of draw cupboard space, flat screen tv and tea making facilities.
There was a large well Fitted out kitchen near by, if you choosed to use it
The Breakfast room Was clean and spacious. a lot of tasty choices for breakfast. But could not keep resisting the Irish Breakfast (with beans)
Fantastic location for all the routes around, In the evenings plenty of friendly Pubs and restuarants to visit.
Another perfect start to our holiday. will be revisiting very shortly.

We stayed at the Hawthorn House in Kenmare last week. Mary, the hostess, was so friendly and funny, really made you feel at home. The rooms are beautiful and clean. The location of the B&B is perfect, you are right in a charming town close to Ring of Kerry, Killarney and the Beara peninsula. The food in Kenmare is exceptional and there was great traditional music at the pubs and restaurants. Only planned to stay one night, but loved everything about the place so much we stayed three. Thanks, Mary, for a great stay.

Mary at Hawthorn was brilliant. She could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Location is great, parking was easy and the breakfast was grand. For a great stay this is the perfect spot.

Thanks again Mary!

Good central location, but limited parking and a lot of nosie at night. Breakfast rushed and not a great choice. Rooms small and a musty smell. Hosts busy but seemed quite nice. Stay here if you want to be in town but do not mind the noise.

Hawthorne House is located right at the top of the hill in Kenmare and is easy walking distance to all of the local restaurants. The rooms were large, recently remodled and very quiet. Great breakfast! There is plenty of on-site parking. Besgt of all, the innkeeper is really great and very helpful. I would stay here again if I was to visit Kenmare.

After reading the reviews, I'm sorry I didn't get to meet Mary! We came in fairly late and base on Rick Steves book, tried the Hawthorne House. We were greeted pleasantly, the room was a nice size, clean and we had a very peaceful night in a comfy bed. The breakfast was very good and I think probably the best cup of coffee I had in our two weeks in Ireland. We'd stay again.

A wonderful home run by a wonderful woman. Mary made us feel at home immediately. The room was warm and very clean. Breakfast was excellent. It is downtown with easy access to (and more importantly easy return from) the restaurants, pubs and shops. We would definitely return to Hawthorn House again.
