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!
We stayed at Davitt’s in May and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The breakfast the next morning was unbelievable! Such excellent choice and the service is second to none. Excellent and helpful staff. Could not recommend this place more. 11/10
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
Actually didn't stay over, but will next time. We had the most amazing breakfast one morning as our accommodation didn't offer any... Brioche french toast with Chrispy bacon maple syrup and cinnamon🤤 amazing.. then went back for dinner he had the best seabass and I the goat's cheese salad the staff are so friendly and the place is clean and warm and I wish we had found it earlier ❤️
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.
Stayed here for two nights with a group of friends .. our motorbikes were parked with ease at the rear … beds were super comfy and the showers were brilliant… Food was superb and one of the nicest breakfasts I’ve had … not to mention evening meals … staff were very friendly humourous and efficient. Mary was an absolute lady to us all and it was all very good value … couldn’t recommend enough … thanks to all
