This is a perfect home base for day trips. Healy Pass is a must! Kenmare is a great little town to come home to each night. Walk to all pubs. Local market right around the corner. Noreen is a delightful host and very helpful.

“Brilliant Base for Touring SW Ireland”
Reviewed September 18, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Smithy's is located just off the main road in a quiet road which leads to the Stone Circle. It is perfect for all the local attractions in Kenmare, all in easy walking distance.There are plenty of places nearby for Breakfast and dinner in the evening, plus plenty of bars had 'live' music every night. Very easy for all sight-seeing trips around Kerry and SW Ireland. Plan a day at a time as each peninsular will take the whole day or a bit more to do the loops. The accommodation is clean and tidy. Noreen the owner is very helpful and there was tea/coffee and biscuits waiting as we arrived.

“Location”
Reviewed July 8, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Had a great time in the Kenmare area. Townhouse was in walking distance to all the shops and restaurants in Kenmare and easy access to Kilarney and ROK. The townhouse was nice, clean and fit our family needs perfectly. Noreen was a wonderful hostess.

“Market Street Location Perfect for Kenmare”
Reviewed June 1, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

Our stay at Smithy's was our second on Market Street in Kenmare. It's an in-town location that affords the convenience of short walks to the main streets (Henry & Main), the Square, as well as Kenmare's many excellent pubs & restaurants. While the supermarkets (Lidl, SuperValu, and (soon to come) Aldi all are a short drive (5 minutes) away, the in-town butchers (we like Roger O'Sullivan's, but you won't go wrong with the others) and markets (Daybreak, Hallisey's/Maureen's & JD O'Sullivan's) are nearby -- the prices are mostly reasonable & you don't have to bother with the car.

Noreen is a welcoming helpful host and has equipped the kitchen and bathrooms well. Beds are comfortable and the rooms have a good amount of space for storage. There is an electric fire in the living room and effective electric heating throughout. No wifi, yet, but I believe it is in the works. My only gripe was that I did not find the living room furniture all that comfortable -- it is fairly new and attractive, but the sofa/loveseat is a bit small & unsupportive. Thought about giving the place 4 stars, but everything else was so good that it wouldn't seem fair. The place is in excellent condition & there were lots of little touches that made us feel right at home.

Overall, this is a good value & we were very happy with our stay. Recommended!

“Oh my, we love Kenmare!”

Had such a wonderful time in the amazing little town of Kenmare! Actually, it's not all that little.....larger than we expected but still small enough to be super cute and quaint. The cottage was in a perfect location. Basically, right in the town but off the main street so it was very quiet. We could park our rental car literally right outside the door, so made it very easy when we did our driving trips to Ring of Beara, etc. I can't wait to go back......<3
