“Davitt's Hotel and Restaurant a comfortable stay with great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

We stayed at Davitt's Kenmare in May 2013 as part of a self-driving holiday around Ireland.
The accommodation is clean and well-designed, the restaurant's food is great, the breakfasts were really good and the owners, of their own accord, gave us very good tips, drew a map and suggested some not-to-miss stuff for our trip forward. Really good value for money and, a bonus of good Irish music while dining in the evening, untill about 21h30 - so no noise factor later.
Location in centre of town - superb.

We stayed here for one night while travelling round Ireland. I expected a basic b&b and was very pleasantly surprised. The room was beautiful and modern and huge. There was only 2 of us yet we had 2 double beds. The breakfast was fantastic and the staff were so friendly. They gave us great advice on where we should visit the following day which we did and saw some amazing views.
We also ate in the hotel on the night and the food was amazing. Really well priced too. Would highly recommend this guesthouse if staying in kenmare.

We thought the room was ok. We thought the breakfast was wonderful, it was the most creative we found in any B&B in Ireland.
We were annoyed the WiFi did not work in the room or the lobby. It was really the only place we've encountered that wasn't set up properly.
The location was great, right on the main street.

We thought the rooms were okay and were annoyed there was no Wi-Fi in the rooms or lobby but the staff (owner especially) were really nice and the breakfast that was included in the price was the best we had in Ireland. They really make an effort to make it great.

Thank you for your comments. We are sorry that you had a problem connecting to our Wifi.
Some of our rooms get our Wifi but others just seem to have a problem picking it up. We have certain hot spots in the building, the whole ground Floor Bar/Restaurant Area & the Lobby that you can get it & we provide our codes in the lobby area for you to connect or just to ask any member of staff.
We are happy that you enjoyed your breakfast we try to offer something varied.
We hope that you enjoyed your trip to Ireland & got some of the lovely sunshine that we are experiencing this week.

Kenmare is a great spot to call home for driving the Ring of Kerry and visiting the National Park. Very clean room, off street parking (could pose a challenge if you drive anything larger than the tiny little rental that we had), can easily walk the whole town from here. Great breakfast options with fresh fruit and granola at the buffet table. Lady of the house was quite friendly and offered recommendations for us to see/do. - Negatives: no free wifi, room had no view

Dear Kate

Thank you so much for your kind comments. We really enjoyed meeting you both & hope you had a great trip to Ireland.
Just a note to say we do have free WIFI but in certain hot spots in the building we provide the code for this. Sorry about the car park. As we are in the centre of the town- the majority of the buidlings do not have parking facilities- street parking is recommended but we are lucky to have a few spaces that we share with another establishment at the rear of the property.
Than you again.

We stayed at this very lovely little hotel for nine nights and enjoyed the best service, the nicest room, the most extraordinary breakfast ever. Mary, the lady of the house, helped us with good advice what to do, which places to visit, with renting a car, getting on the internet on her own computer when ours didn't work and using her washing machine ("You may need it, when you are staying for such a long time!"). In the evenings there was good food and live music at the restaurant, and across the street we found the best music pub in town for later in the evening. From Kenmare you can easily visit the Dingle peninsula, the Ring of Kerry and lovely Beara, and do not miss the Seafari, a 2-3hours boat trip tyo watch birds and seals!

Thank you for choosing Davitts as your base for the 9 nights. We really enjoyed chatting to you both in the morning & helping you plan your trips everyday & better still enjoyed your funny stories on your excursions.
