“Great place to stay”
Reviewed June 8, 2009

We stayed for two nights. Mary and the staff were really friendly and gave great service. The breakfasts were excellent and the rooms very clean and comfortable. The location is within walking distance of good restaurants and pubs. Free parking is a bonus. Would highly recommend this B&B to anyone.

We stayed here for the Easter Bank holiday this year and I was so... Impressed i had to put a review up as I think some of the other reviews are not really showing this gem in the right light.
We booked the appartments that are attached to this Beautiful B&B they are brand new and amazing they had everything your could need and more.. the one we were in had 2 fantastic ensuite bedrooms (TV in all rooms) 2 dbl & 1 single in total plus they provided cot for our daughter. The decor was stunning and I believe the owner makes most of the furniture him self I loved the coffee table & Mirror.. This place has everything and all top end everything you have at home and more.
My only problem was we were not staying longer this is ideal for someone who wants to explore the region like a home away from home. Really I am still amazed how top end everything was the kitchen had everything,Washing machine, dryer sitting room.. tv all the channels. Brilliant for a group of travellers or family.
The family were lovely too so so helpful and kind Mary was a gem, their girls were so good to our little baby and they even offered to babysit for us.
Excellent Location Based right at the top of the town only min walk to everything yet the bedrooms were so quiet we heard nothing and our little girl slept all night which was something we were concerned about. The price works out even better if a few are staying and for 4 days plus.. but they have b&b attached if you are staying for less nights. I had photos but cant seem to load them sorry.. but def recommend this appartment to ANYONE..

PS it has been years since we were in Kerry and I had forgotten how amazing it was stunning!, was so busy with visitors was lovely to see in these tight times how people are still coming to Ireland.

The hotel is conveniently located just at the edge of town with only a short walk into Kenmare - ample parking. The rooms are large but could do with refurbishment but were clean and beds very comfortable. Breakfast was good and staff very friendly - serve very good tea! Is probably slightly overpriced considering amount of accommodation available but overall i would stay here again.

  • Liked — location and breakfast
  • Disliked — overpriced and needs refurbishment to keep up with competition
