We were so excited to return to O'Shea's Ceol Na Habhann and were not disappointed! From our welcoming hugs from Therese upon our arrival to more hugs and a special parting gift of the best scones I've ever had as we sadly left for our next destination, our stay in Kenmare and with Therese was wonderful! Therese keeps a lovely,...

This was a lovely B&B, cosy and clean and the lady who owns it is so nice & welcoming! Only 1 minute drive from Kenmare town..perfect location to avoid expensive accomodation in the town itself. 100% going back

We stayed in O Shea's for one night while we went to visit kenmare for the pink ribbon walk. We had a triple room for the 3 of us and it was very nice. O Shea's is also very near the town it's about 10min walk. Breakfast was lovely and we could have as much as we wanted. I will...

Our recent trip to Kenmare brought us back to O'Shea's Coel Na Habhann. Once again we were greeted with hugs and given our choice of rooms. Therese is a wonderful hostess and even packed us some of her famous scones for our day trips. Finished to the highest standard this is the place to stay when visiting Kenmare.

We stayed for one night while attending a wedding in Kenmare. Therese was very welcoming when we arrived, giving us tips about taxis in kenmare and the options and times for breakfast the next morning etc. The room and facilities were great, very clean and nicely decorated with art. At breakfast the next morning, Therese went out of her way...

Therese is a wonderful host and a very welcoming and excellent example of Ireland's superb hospitality. From the time of booking throughout our two night stay, she couldn't have done more to make us feel comfortable and welcome. She even spent time with us sharing her thoughts on everything from the effect of the euro on the Irish economy to...

Back again to visit Therese for another great stay. The rooms, breakfast and hospitality were great as always as were the scones. The weather was a disaster so we camped out in the lounge for one of the days, a great selection of music cds to choose from to brighten up our lazy day. We're looking forward to our next...

Therese is wonderful!! As we have found nearly ALL of our hostesses all over Ireland during the course of two separate 2-week driving vacations, Therese is the very best of what we love about Ireland.......the charming, friendly, accommodating people who live there!! So helpful, so un-rushed (plenty of time for us, and for our many questions!!) The B&B itself is...

I would say the same as above. There are no sidewalks and the road is narrow. But Therese is a dear and did drive my Mom and I into town when my brother took the rental car to his golf tee-time. Parking in town is not too bad either. We were there in October and had no trouble finding places to park.
