“First choice if staying in Kenmare”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

Me and my son stayed here on our motorbike tour of Ireland .
Welcomed with a pot of tea and biscuits .. Just the best of welcomes after a long day on the bikes .. The landlady was so helpful guiding us to the best places to eat locally and also arranging a taxi ... Brilliant ... Large comfy rooms with excellent shower ... And a great breakfast the following day ... All for a great price ... If your staying in this part of Ireland make this your number 1 choice of B and B

If you plan to visit the southwest you are well advised to book a stay at SheenView B&B. Amanda greeted us with a smile and a pot of tea and we knew right away we were going to enjoy our stay! The room was cozy and comfortable and the sitting room was our home away from home. Breakfast was always excellent with a great variety available and more than enough to satisfy the biggest appetite. The location is convenient to Dingle and the Ring of Kerry as well as the Beara penninsula. It's country setting is also very close to Kenmore Town and the many shops and restaurants. I can say without any reservation SheenView is the best B&B we have ever stayed at! Amanda is the perfect hostess and we hope to stay there again!

fantastic location with a magnificent view of the mountains. very friendly and hospitable welcome, very clean and spacious rooms (just the bed was a little small for two adults used to a continental standard, but that's typical for Irish beds). The breakfast was one of the best we've ever had in Ireland (and we've stayed at quite a number of B&Bs by now).
We highly recommend this B&B!

Let me start by saying I normally can be pretty critical in reviews. We originally booked with another B&B down the road that double booked and moved us to Sheenview without asking. I wasn't totally happy with that idea at first, but Amanda and Peter quickly changed our mindset. They were incredibly friendly, and even offered suggestions for places to go that we hadn't considered (great suggestions!) The room was great, it has skylights that open so you can get freshair, and blackout curtains that made it feel like a cave for the day we wanted to sleep in. A separate TV room upstairs was also nice. Amanda's Full Irish breakfast was fantastic, and honestly, we loved the tea (my wife usually hates tea too!) The only suggestion we have is that we wish we knew there was WiFi available (didn't find out until the last morning there)

Make sure you go to Gleninchaquin Park just down the road for a great day with various hikes, and some homemade scones after you finish. The waterfall was beautiful and the views second to none. Also, Peter recommended Healy Pass on our drive on the Ring of Beara and it was a great drive.

Thanks so much for everything, and if we get back to County Kerry, we'll be staying again!

We stayed at Sheenview over the bank holiday weekend. We were diving with Kenmare Bay Diving Centre and Sheenview is located about 20 minutes away on the right side of Kenmare town. Its also a very short drive into Kenmare where there are plenty of nice resturants, so for us the location was ideal. To say the rooms are clean would be an understatement, they are totally spotless (as is everywhere at Sheenview). Our room had a big ensuite and plenty of space. The guest lounge is a nice touch with plenty of books, dvds and board games. The owner is very friendly and helpful. There was plenty of choice for breakfast (including a couple of vegetarian options) and the breakfast was very tasty. The owners certainly go that bit extra to make sure you are well looked after, we'd definitely choose to stay there again.

What a fabulous B&B. Amanda is a very hospitable host & made us feel very welcome. Located in a tranquil position just outside Kenmare with a lovely garden to enjoy afternoon tea. Beautifully extended house with all the equipment you would expect from an above average B&B. Good value & no complaints, except my wife now wants to move there! Ask Amanda to show you the secret path to the coast - its a great place to hide our for a few hours - just a 10min walk.
