Cleanest place you will ever stay. Stayed last weekend with my daughter. The people who ran this fabulous BB / apartments are more than helpful. There is everything you need in it to make it a comfortable stay. Bed was so comfy. Garden and little seating area outside the entrance is lovely. Great value for money considering what other places charge. Could not fault it at all.
Great adherence to covid 19 regulations ie spotlessly clean, minimal contact with host, accommodation in a studio out the back of main house, contintental breakfast which you collect in an adjacent room to your studio in the morning...Studio is very clean and bed is comfortable but decor was disappointing ...magnolia on walls and floors ..very minimalist and not in an attractive way, layout and design is strange..huge bland utility area with washing machine, huge but drab bathroom, bed and kitchen are part of the same space, tv tiny, also only one armchair. For some this place will tick every box but for us it is completely devoid of character and the bathroom feels like it should be in a a hospital (large but very badly designed and tiling and finishing touches are not good). Breakfast basic contintental (without any patries) and coffee is a nescafe satchet. Property may have a view from upstairs (as shown on website) but where we were staying we were looking out on an enclosed small garden (perfectly tended as it was) but felt almost claustrophobic. Good enough value for Kenmare no doubt and would suit many for whom cleanliness and quality of shower and bed is priority but for us breakfast and facilities and overall warmth and feeling of being welcome are equally important.…
We stayed at Driftwood when we last came to Ireland and knew we couldn't go wrong staying here again as we loved it there. With the covid changes, we could only book a self-contained studio apartment. It was bright, airy and very comfortable for us. The apartment opened out onto the private gardens which was a lovely place to sit and relax. Peter and Minigon were just lovely hosts. They also made us a great continental breakfast in the mornings which we appreciated. Thank you very much for a fabulous stay and we'll be back!
We selected this modern B&B as it is perfectly located as a starting point for a clockwise driving tour of the Ring of Kerry. Our room was comfortable and the we couldn't have asked for a better breakfast before an early start. The B&B is located a short distance from the main town and you could walk to the restaurants if it was not raining, which it was that evening.. Parking is on the grounds of the property. Our hosts Peter and Mignonne were very helpful and gracious. We booked directly with the property and found it very good value, highly recommended.
Mignonne was great. She was beyond helpful in assisting us with our drive up the West Atlantic Way. She gave great tips and always spent ample time with us every morning. Her husband Peter was also very nice. Her house is very clean and our room was a good size. Every morning we would be greeted by our host's warmth and friendliness. I would definitely recommend this place.
I'm sure this is a lovely property if you do manage to stay there; sadly, their policy of not checking in after 8pm and inflexibility in accommodating your circumstances mean that you need to be very careful with arrival time. When we got stuck in severe fog & rain (not unusual in Ireland) and did not want to drive in such weather conditions, the owners were unwilling to let us in later and we had to find another b&b literally in the middle of nowhere. The worst thing was when the owner hang up on us with words 'Bye, now'. Not the Irish hospitality that we witnessed everywhere else in this lovely country.
We've spent several nights in Driftwood. Again and again we are surprised by the beautiful rooms, the delicious breakfast and the sweet hosts. It feels like coming home every time. We wish Peter and Mignonne all the best with their future plans. Dirk & Kristien, Flor & Anny
Me and my brother stayed at Driftwood Bed and Breakfast for two nights during our 10 day roadtrip around the West of Ireland! It is a truly amazing bed and breakfast! Mignonne and Peter were so helpful and friendly! They gave us a lot of useful information on how to make the most out of our stay in Kenmare and they were very warm and chatty! The breakfast was tasty and the room was sparkling clean! We highly recommend Driftwood bed and breakfast, if you re looking for a nice, clean, quite and very warm place to stay! The hosts definitely made us feel like home and we will go back for sure!
Absolutely amazing house with amazing hosts (owners). From the moment we arrived the owners were very helpful and accommodating. Great location with a nice walk to City center. The rooms were very clean and nice. Great breakfast made in the breakfast room. Hosts were very helpful in giving recommendations. Would definitely stay again. And would highly recommend.
We have visited Driftwood as a part of our journey along the Wild Atlantic Way. Our hosts were very welcoming and friendly - the breakfast was excellent. The room was very comfortable, and very clean as well. Not to forget that the host gave as excellent recommendations for things to see and do on the peninsula. We can only recommend a stay in this B&B.
