    Absolutely one of the best experiences in Ireland!
    Great history beautifully told by Stephen and his family PLUS great exhibits, farm experience, local knitwear and crafts but most of all a genuine warm welcome from the whole family.

    Very interesting to see the size of the boulders and wonder how they could have been moved without the use of modern-day machines!

    This was as great little spot to check out. I walked by it on my way into town. The bridge is pretty neat. There is also a walking path near it. I didn't have the time to see where it went, but I will definitely stop again the next time I'm in Kenmare. It was a great town and I'm looking forward to going back next year.

    Well worth a visit to this beautiful catholic church situated in the middle of Kenmare town. It is kept very clean & inviting to sit and pray.

    I’ve been driving & camping with my bike & hiking boots for a week now and am loving just jumping onto different parts of The Beara Way Walk. It really is a very special area on the SWest coast of Ireland.
    For me personally I much prefer The Beara to the far more tourist route of The Ring of Kerry. It’s quieter the roads much smaller so no big tourist coaches and loads of groups of folks jumping on & off at certain points. This area is far more relaxed and peaceful. The coastline is actually quite different to the one further north more bays & tiny little coves rather than big Cliffs.

    while visiting the town of Kenmare we stopped to visit the inside of this church. It was absolutely beautiful- the architecture, flooring, stained glass, vaulted ceilings, altars and more. Definitely worth a quick stop if visiting the town

    If you’re visiting Cromwell Bridge, you might as well walk across the street and see this little Holy Well. It’s small, but very well kept up. Visitors come here to pray for healing.

    Killowen Old Church is a Victorian neo gothic ruin on the edge of Kenmare town. An atmospheric ruin. The church is ruined and has no roof. The surrounding burial ground is very overgrown.

    What those nuns done to me in school was criminal. Sr Concepta specifically. Place should be burned to the ground.

    Lovely old ruins and graveyard. All the readable names on stones are listed in a panel at gate opening and can also be found free on line if looking for someone specific.

    This folly turned into a scavenger hunt for us. We noticed it on one of our Kenmare maps and tried to find it with no luck. We found a description on another map and tried again. Determined to find it, we finally googled a map. It's out of the way, but a fun way to tour more of the town.
