Reviewed August 8, 2012

Myself and my girlfriend stayed here for one night as we were booked into a local hotel for another two nights. Kenmare House B&B is a fantastic house with beautiful rooms and excellent food. It is the best quality B&B I have stayed in and I have travelled throughout Ireland over many years. It is a great location to town - 7 minutes walk. Dan & Fionnula run the B&B and Dan went to great lengths to give advice and information about trips locally and especially routes to take that were not in tourist guide books but absolutely fantastic - he even gave us hand drawn maps that he has prepared for guests full of great tips. All of this made for a super weekend. There is also free wifi available. Unfortunaely we had to move to the hotel, as it was prepaid, which was disappointing compared to the B&B. Highly recommended - we will be back for sure.

This was a great place to stay! The town was very busy with lots of little shops to explore. Gracious hosts with a delicious breakfast. Homemade bread was excellent.

2 weeks ago my Husband and I stayed at Kenmare House. The accomodations were wonderful, comfortable and totally accessible to downtown Kenmare. Danny and Fionnula O'Sullivan were wonderful hosts. The day of our departure we were discussing with Danny the road we would take to Dingle, our next stop. Danny suggested instead of going over the mountain that we might like to take the road that went through Molls Gap. It was wonderful! Such a beautiful change looking from the bottom of the mountains up! As a travel Agent in the U.S. who specializes in Ireland I will always book my clients into Kenmare House. We will be returning next year for an extended stay with them. Lovely House, Lovely People.

As a family of 5 it's hard to find accommodation that suits us perfectly, but we found it here. A room with 2 double and 1single beds. And it was spacious too, we didn't feel squeezed in.
The beds were comfy, the bathroom was lovely and all in all it was super clean.
The breakfasts were fab, plenty of choice and all served by our friendly and helpful host Fionnula.
It's an easy walk into town too with it's abundance of family friendly restaurants and shops.
We will definitely be back soon

Can't say enough good things about this B&B.
Fionnuala was a gracious host, making us feel very welcome.
Our room was spacious, tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean.
Even the windows are triple glazed, so there was no traffic noise, despite being on main road.
Breakfast was superb, along with the service.
Location is perfect for a short walk to Kenmare town centre.
Easy parking.
Highly recommended.

We only had a chance to stay for one evening but it was absolutely delightful. The accommodations were terrific and the house itself lovely. It was clean, quiet, and well within walking distance to town. Breakfast was terrific and would certainly return.

Kenmare House, formerly known as Annagry House is a very pleasant B&B in lovely surroundings convenient to everything. Finnoula, the host is most helpful & friendly. The room was very big & comfortable. The breakfast was great. We would highly recommend this B&B.

Room Tip: All rooms should be fine, as it is a quite area
