Great location, lovely rooms and a really nice welcome with a good breakfast. What more could you ask for! The rooms were spacious and clean and nice decor. This is a place that feels warm and comfortable and welcoming.

Kennys is a family run B&B in the centre of Castlebar. It is comfy, cosy, very well appointed, the owners are very friendly and accommodating, could not be in a more central location and the breakfasts are excellent, what more could you want?

We stayed at Kenny's Guesthouse for one night in July. Raymond met us on our arrival and was extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was at the front which is on the main road but was surprisingly quiet. The room was quite large, modern and everything was really comfortable - the bed, the temperature etc. Given that all the rooms...

We stayed here two nights while on a family history search. We found Kennys to be a great value with very congenial staff. Our room was very clean. Some parking is available.

Old style bed and breakfast. Very friendly host, outdated infrastructure. Clean and complete though, excellent breakfast with all options made to order. Castlebar cuty though much less appealing then nearby Westport, nearly no decent restaurant open in evening

Very good welcome to this guest house which has a very central location. Lots of good facilities like a nice sitting room, iron available, telephone in room. Nice en suite bathroom and comfortable bed.The breakfast was excellent and coffee good. People return, which speaks volumes about the place and how they are received.
