Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The room was basic, but the mattress was horrible! It was hard and lumpy and springs could be felt. Site stated they only accept cash, but it seems they will accept credit cards. No sight of owners, cleaning staff checked is in. She was very pleasant but not very professional.

My wife and I stayed at PHK August 3&4, 2022 - The General Manager TJ was a delight to meet and his staff made our stay a memorable one. The food was excellent, (especially the Lamb), breakfast lovely and drinks were perfect - all was good. The Spa was very unique and we had a great body scrub. Thanks again TJ and we will return soon !

We loved staying at Hawthorne House. It's right in the middle of town, within walking distance to everything. The room was clean and spacious, and Mary was a gracious host. I would definitely stay here again!

Mary is very nice, free parking and WI-FI. Bed is a king and very comfy. No breakfast. Other then that not much to mention. Sleepy town on a Friday night no live music (this maybe because of the time of year??). I would stay here again though,,should the price allow.

It was a return visit to kenmare and we stayed with Mary. We had a great welcome and settled in very quickly. The holiday home we rented had just about everything. Lovely comfortable beds,and every other comfort was catered for during our stay. It's an ideal location for walks, cycling,and the wild water swimming. The restaurants and gastropubs that were open were all within walking distance. Mary is a first class host and our accomodation was ideal. The staycation experience is going to be repeated in 2021. We just hope there will be a vacancy for us.

We absolutely loved our stay at PHK. We were on our honeymoon and celebrating my 40th birthday and were treated so special in every way from a small bottle of champagne in our room upon check in to a special dessert during our dinner. Every staff member was friendly and went out of their way to be accommodating. Their spa is also amazing and would highly recommend a visit!
