My girlfriend and I stumbled across this little gem while driving through Kenmare. The moment we arrived, we were greeted by the owners who were very, very polite and welcoming. We were so happy to be greeted with such happiness. We do not use online apps for booking, and prefer to book on arrival, like the old days! After seeing the cleanliness of the house, the bearing of the owners, and the proximity to town, we booked! This BnB, is bar far the best one we have stayed in to date during our visit to Ireland (We started on August 20). Thank you again for such a lovely stay!!!!! Grazie a Lei per vista buono

Outstanding from the minute we checked in until we left . The rooms are 5 star and the location is fabulous . We were able to walk into town and home again to some of the lovely restaurants Kenmare has to offer . We liked it so much we tried to stay on extra nights but it was booked out . This was no surprise as it is a quality guesthouse. The breakfast was also delicious.

This B and B is hotel standard. We had a lovely clean, spacious and comfortable room. The only recommendation I would have is to buy in some gf porridge or cereal. When we requested gf cereal for our coeliac, there was none available and we had mentioned in our booking form that one of us was a coeliac, so we'd hoped you'd be prepared in that regard.
