There were a lot of things that we liked about Watersedge. The house is very nice, with a lovely little sitting area outside overlooking the water. Our hostess (never saw our host) was very friendly, and breakfast was, if not stellar, perfectly acceptable. The B&B is a bit of a walk outside of Kenmare, but we didn't mind it, particularly since there's a little cut through via the woods outside the B&B.
But there was a weirdness to our stay. It seemed to us that the B&B had been overbooked, and that we had been put in a family room rather than a guest room. The room was very nice and large, as was the bathroom, but it was directly across from the kids' rooms, and there was quite a bit of noise with doors slamming and the TV being on loudly during a Rugby match. It seemed that all the other rooms were upstairs, where it was probably quieter. Also, there were no quite enough places at breakfast, and we ended up sitting at a makeshift table.
On the one hand, we were glad to have the room, but on the other it made us feel a bit strange. Also, we didn't feel like we really experienced the proper B&B, so our take on it is a bit peculiar.
