Usually I agree with Trip Advisor ratings - but for this hotel, I'm puzzled as to why people think it is so great.
There is nothing awful about the hotel - there are some good things (the bed was comfortable and my wife pointed out that the sheets etc were very high quality). However, the hotel website uses the word 'boutique' a lot - and boutique its not!
The breakfast was fairly good - but slow. We ate once in the bistro and were dissapointed - what we had was average at best. We ate in the town for the other two nights.
Kenmare is a lovely town and base for a few days in the area. I seem to remember when choosing that hotel rates are high here, but this hotel was probably the worst value we had during a 9 day touring holiday in Ireland. If I came back to Kenmare I would probably choose a B&B in the town with parking.
