“Lovely traditional Irish Cottage!”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

This is a very nice spot to stay in if you are planning on doing any touring. The Ring of Kerry and Kerry Way are on your doorstep! They seem to have a new website up if anyone would like to have a look 'www.druidcottagekenmare.com'. They have some good photos on it. Gives you a feel for the place! :)

Druid Cottage is a charming home, not a hotel, with a lovely family as the hosts (including the 17-year-old daughter and the 4-year-old dog, Jack). Our rooms were tight, but charming, and who cares if the modernized bathrooms aren't grandiose?! Knowing we had to leave at the crack of dawn to reach Shannon Airport in time for our return flight, Bernadette left everything out for us in the dining room. She also baked us each a loaf of her delicious Irish soda bread to take home with us. We got more than we expected and were extremely happy there. So were the othere guests.

My husband and I stayed here one night. Our room was sufficient. I thought the name Druid Cottage sounded so mysterious, and expected the house to have some sort of 'history' so I was a little disappointed when Bernadette said it is just a few-hundred years old house. Our room was nice, if a bit small. Bathroom small too. We were the only guests at the time we were there. Bernadette was very friendly and helpful. Gave us lots of suggestions of what to do and where to go. We loved the town of Kenmare and I would love to go back. Breakfast was good as well. Great location!

This B&B is quite old, so maybe it is why the room was damp, cold and smelled heavily of mold and mildew. The bed linens were wet, sheets and spread, and stank. It was hard to sleep as the beds were hard and wet. It was hard to breathe with all the mold in the air. Stairs were hard to traverse with luggage. Not sure if the landlady actually wanted guests, as she was not very friendly. Breakfast room was cold. Shower did not work properly. Heat went off after our arrival and did not come back on. So we tried to sleep in a cold, damp, smelly room, with stinky linens. Overall experience was of discomfort and we could not wait to leave. We chose another B&B for the next day. I would not recommend this B&B to anyone.

Room Tip: Don't get a room at this place.
