This was a lovely lodge situated close to Kenmare town for easy walking. Two complaints: Rooms are on upper level and no one there to help carry our luggage upstairs or down and there is no lift.

All staff went out of their way to make things easier on the four of us as...

Stayed here just one night. Location is great only 5-6 min walk to downtown area. Room was spacious and breakfast was great. My only complaint was the bathroom. It was a handicap bathroom so not sure if this was standard in every room. Not a big deal however the toilet seat was raised almost for someone with a recent hip...
