Reviewed May 7, 2013

Our four night stay at Abbey Court was a delightful experience. Brendan and Ger are lovely hosts and extended a warm greeting. After we were served coffee and shortbread cookies, Ger took time to explain sites to see in and around Kenmare. The exquisite sitting rooms at Abbey Court exemplify a serene place to relax with various reading material and the view is absolutely beautiful. The location of Abbey Court is suited for a good nights sleep. The bedroom is well appointed and we slept peacefully all four nights. A plus is that Brendan and Ger are accommodating to your needs. Breakfast is very good and filling and we appreciated the ever present selection of fresh fruit. The ten minute walk to town is very refreshing. We will always have fond memories of Abbey Court - Brendan, Ger and Niamh.

We were really looking forward to out trip to the abbeycourt based on the many great reviews and it did not disappoint.
When we arrived Brendan greeted us warmly with coffee and carrot cake. Our oom was well appointed and the shower had great water pressure and plenty of hot water.
The view from the room and seating areas was of the river and mountains.
The breakfast was outstanding with many options.
Brendan and his family were really welcoming and when we left we felt he was more of a friend. He gave us great trips for routes, meals and music.
Really, really recomend this place and would love to return.

We stayed at Abbey Court for two nights towards the end of our trip to the west and south coasts. We chose it for the location and the family apartment as we were travelling with our two teen-aged children. The location was great--very near Ring of Kerry, Beara Peninsula, and Molls Gap. Our itinerary got a bit disjointed because the Kissane Sheep Farm was open only one day during our visit, so we ended up driving the Dingle Peninsula from Tralee, then over Molls Gap to Abbey Court all in one long day. It was surprisingly do-able. At this B&B we felt like we were staying in the family home. It was a different experience from the other B&Bs we visited, which were all wonderful. The family apartment was not as well-appointed as some of the other B & Bs we stayed at, but it was homey, very comfortable, clean, and it met our needs quite well. The tub was a plus, and we had a great view of the river. It was nice to do a little laundry as we were near the end of our trip (word to the wise--small loads only, and the dryer is very hot!) We even ate in one night as it was pouring rain. As this was the family apt and we were not expecting fresh towels and made up beds on our second day, we were pleasantly surprised upon our return from sightseeing to see that this had been done. Brendan and his family were very welcoming, the breakfasts were great, and the recommendations for things to do were appreciated. We enjoyed the music session at The Coachmans that Brendan recommended.

Room Tip: If you are traveling with children, the family apt, with two bedrooms and baths and full kitchen is...

We stayed here with our friends the hunters and found Abbeycourt to be the most welcoming place we have ever stayed in. We booked last October and our main reason for coming on our first trip to Ireland was to find out about our ancestors who lived in the area but emigrated around 1915. Ger got in touch with a local historian called michael lynch and we were able to get the census details of our families from the 1901 and 1911 census, which gave us a great insight into what life was like 100 tears ago. I can not thank the ceallaigh family enough for all their wonderful help and kindness, they have helped make a lifetime dream come true and so we are writing this review to let others know how genuine they are.
The rooms were really nice, great seating areas, wholesome breakfast and a great atmosphere. Thank you, thank you so much, we will try and be back and will certainly recomend

A really awesome B& B where hospitality abounds. Brendon and his family are very friendly and there is a very pleasany and easy going atmosphere where all the visitors are made feel welcome. The rooms are all real comfortable with good beds. Brendon serves an amazing breakfast. There is a sidewalk to downtown kenmare where there are plenty of restaurants, shops and music.

Room Tip: Lovely view from the rear

We stayed here from the 21st to the 24th of March 2013. The location is central. The residence is homely and comfortable and the host, Brendan, is extremely helpful and friendly. The views from the house are stunning as it faces onto a picturesque lake and it is a great area to take a country walk. Our stay here was a pleasure and I would have no hesitation on returning.
