The Watersedge is a nice guesthouse just across the bridge from Kenmare. The rooms are spacoius and clean, the beds are confortable, the rooms could use some additional seating to relax. The view from our room was a great view of the bay. The town square was just a short drive across the bridge. The square was probably normally within walking distance but it was raining and the walkway across the bridge was closed during bridge repairs. The breakfast selection was varied and good.

Our family stayed at the Watersedge b&b for two nights in September 2011. I cannot say enough good things about this b&b and the hostess, Noreen. We had rooms 3 & 4 and both were very large, nicely decorated, and extremely clean. The bathrooms were very well laid out and extremly clean as well. The view of the lake from our windows was beautiful. We had a wonderful time hanging out there in the evenings. One night we watched a dvd from their collection on the flat screen tv in our room. Noreen had tea and treats in the dining room for us around the clock. The breakfast menu to select from was vast and was delicious both mornings. We drove into Kenmare the first day (only a 3minute drive) and we walked into Kenmare the next day - about a 10minute walk. Very nice walk cutting through the path on their property. Noreen was a very gracious host. I would recommend this b&b to everyone wishing to stay in Kenmare, Ireland.

I recently stayed at this B&B with my wife for one night. We enjoyed our stay here although it was brief. Our room (#4) was very nice and spacious. We had a twin bed. Bathroom was big and clean. Our breakfast was excellent. We both had the smoked salmon, eggs, & toast. The B&B is located just outside of town. It is a solid 10 minute walk into town. It was very quiet on the night we were there. The town itself has several pubs although the food is a little more expensive here than in some of the towns we've visited in Ireland to date (6). Only slight negative is that the wi-fi didn't work real well in a our room which was located on the second floor. It was hit and miss. We had to go downstairs to the dining room where it worked just fine. One side note is that there is a self serve laundry facility in town which isn't always common in Irish towns for those traveling for an extended period. It (O'Sheay's) is located in town on I believe Main Street and not a km north of town as the Rick Steves book indicates. The facility north of town is an O'Sheay's but is a commercial facility. I plan on emailing Rick for an update :-) .....Great B&B though if want you to stay just a little bit outside of town in a quiet place.

Our family stayed at The Watersedge B&B in June of 2011, and had a wonderful time there. We were greeted when we drove up by Gypsi, their friendly family dog (which we all loved!) We found the two rooms we stayed in spacious, clean and very inviting, with a TV/DVD in each room, lots of DVDs in the lobby, and wireless internet. Our host Noreen was very friendly and helpful in offering local information. The location was just outside of town, but there was a direct path from their backyard down to the town for a short ten-minute walk, which we enjoyed after driving most of the day. We parked our car and never used it until we left. One of the highlights of our stay was the patio in the backyard, which overlooked the beautiful bay. What a lovely and relaxing place to enjoy the sunset as well as coffee the next morning. We also had absolutely delicious breakfasts (a variety of them since there were six of us, but our favorite was the smoked salmon). After we left, Noreen found some things we had left behind and contacted us to see if we wanted to stop by to pick them up. We were too far to return when we got the message, so she packed it up and sent it to us in the U.S. Now, that’s service! We would highly recommend this B&B. It clearly was one of the best places we stayed on our trip to Ireland!

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.
