We recently stayed with Mary at Davitt's Guesthouse for 3 nights. She is an amazing host: sweet, kind, knowledgeable, and provides an unbelievably delicious breakfast. The location is PERFECT set in the middle of the main street directly across from Crowley's which is a well-known pub in Kenmare. The rooms are large and quiet with very nice bathrooms and showers, but Mary is truly the gem of Davitt's Guesthouse.

We give this a 5 star because Mary, the owner, was such a wonderful part of our trip. She did everything to make our stay a good one. Davitts is perfectly located in the heart of Kenmare. Walk out the door and you are right at the shops and pubs. She has a wonderful restaurant attached and we had an excellent made to order breakfast each morning with wonderful ideas from her on what not to miss while visiting Kenmare! This is truly an example of Irish hospitality!

All the five star comments about Davitts I wholeheartedly endorse, but in my case, they went above and beyond the call of duty. Due to my own ineptitude using Booking.com, I had inadvertently mucked up the booking for myself, my sister and her husband, somehow ending up with six beds for three people. Then in steps Mary who, with grace and charm, sorted me and my mess out. This was all done in a way that left me feeling like a genuinely valued customer. Thank you Mary!

Fantastic room, fantastic food and genuine Irish hospitality. This is the very essence of Irish hospitality. In a sea of mediocrity, Davitt’s is a shining beacon of how it should be done. I’ll be back. C

A group of us stayed here & i have to say its great value for money. Staff were lovely & the rooms lovely clean, comfy & spacious. Breakfast was yum. Great Bunch here... If i have to criticize or recommend is that room maybe offer a light duvet or sheet cause we were very warm in the room but then it was a very humid night... but we loved our stay & will definitely be back.

We had a great stay here last week. The Staff were very friendly especially Mary when we went down for Breakfast that morning. Fabulous Eggs Benedict we both got. The Room was a fine size with a really good Shower. It was very warm but you could open the Velux Windows for air which was great. We will definitely stay here again.
