“A B & B you'll like a lot!”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

The Driftwood B & B was our home for two nights last month. It was exceptionally clean, neat, comfortable, and friendly. The location was perfect - a short walk into Kenmare for shopping, eating and a Pub crawl with Irish music. Peter, the Proprietor, was a great host, made an excellent breakfast, and was a good source for local information. He sent us to the best Fish and Chips in Ireland ... and they were! Stay here and enjoy Kenmare and the rest of the Ring of Kerry.

This is a lovely little B&B about a 10 min walk from the heart of Kenmare, which is an absolutely amazing town. Our hosts were very nice and kept to themselves for the most part, which I liked. The house was very quiet and relaxing, the rooms are beautiful and clean. The breakfast is wonderful, made when you order it and there are some nice choices. I LOVED staying here and would definitely stay here again.

This B&B "Driftwood" in Kenmare, Co. Kerry is a great place to stay. The owners Peter and Mignonne Williams are friendly and helpful and breakfast was delicious. We stayed in the apartment for a number of days. It was exceptionally clean with good facilities and plenty of hot water. Kenmare is a gem of an Irish town. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and we were lucky to experience golden sunshine throughout our stay. We will be back!

I cannot speak highly enough of this B&B or of its hosts! The Driftwood is a short walk to the town center and has parking, which is perfect if you have a car but don't want the hassle of parking in town. The room was immaculately clean and comfortable, and the Irish breakfast was one of the best ones we had during our two week trip. Everything was homemade - even the yogurt. The Driftwood was also the cheapest place we stayed at during our whole trip. We loved our hosts - Peter answered questions we had about the area by e-mail prior to our arrival, and Mignonne sat with us during breakfast to tell us about the local history. She even sent us her bread recipe. Truly delightful people/place.

We stayed 4 nights at Driftwood and really enjoyed our stay .Mignonne and Peter were extremely friendly and helpful hosts who have decorated and furnished the house in a bright, contemporary style. Breakfast was served in a lovely room at the back of the house and the simple menu was always beautifully cooked and presented. The B and B was very clean throughout and would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: If light traffic noise is a problem ask for the room at the back.

We stayed one night at the Driftwood and enjoyed the clean rooms and a wonderful breakfast. No problems with the TV or having hot water. (These were problems we encountered at other B&Bs on our two week trip in Ireland.)

One of the nicest paces we stayed at during our two weeks in Ireland. Room was great. Bathroom actually had some room to move. Breakfast was very nice. Good coffee. Proprietors were very nice and obviously talented, judging by the art work displayed throughout. Easy walk to town, and there's an old church and cemetery just down the road to check out too.
