Kenmare is a charming albeit touristy town that is teeming with bnb/hotels, and I regretted not walking away to find a pleasant place to enjoy it as soon as the owner opened the door. The website describes it as a "charming early Victorian home". It may have been many years ago. Now, it's musty and drab, and suffering from serious... More

We traveled two weeks across Ireland staying in b and b's and this one ranked last. Room was so small we could hardly move around in it. Bernadette acted like we were an intrusion when we arrived (her husband was nicer) and in the morning with a gruff tone told us our bill was incorrect and each couple owed 24... More

Lovely welcome and great little b&b. Will definitely be back. Only a 10 minute walk to the centre down a little footpath. Excellent breakfast the next morning from friendly hosts. The room was clean with everything you needed for a short break.

We stayed for one night, the room was small but adequate. The breakfast area was cluttered and a tad dusty, it felt like a hostel, nothing was spared eg the lid on the cereal container was held together with sellotape, tea bags loose in the room (who knows how long they had been left in the bedroom). What put us... More

We were greeted by a very friendly dog & the husband, Philip was also very nice but, the wife was a bit cool. That evening, while trying to fall asleep, coming thru the floors we could hear everything from downstairs AND there was a HUGE SINK HOLE in the center of our bed! We put one of the bed pillows...

We stayed in Kenmare for 3 nights and enjoyed our time in the Druid Cottage The owners Bernadette and Philip were very knowledgeable and helpful in assisting us with our sightseeing in and around Kenmare. The short walk into town was enjoyable, my daughter and I enjoyed seeing the sheep along the way.

We stayed at Druid Cottage for one night during our trip to Kenmare. It was a wonderful stay. We were greeted promptly at our arrival by Phillip and he showed us to our room.

What a lovely cottage with a wonderful owner in Bernadette. We stayed here one night in a twin room and could not have been more comfortable. Bernadette was great with information about the area and the shortcut walk to town. The beds were comfy the room spotless and the breakfast hearty and tasty. Would recommend to all.

I loved Druid Cottage. After a hard days walking, the name Druid Cottage evoked lovely images in my head - it lived up to it! Wonderful house with loads of history and character - quirky bedroom with wooden ceiling, comfy bed, lovely warm room which all comes second to the warm welcome we got from Bernadette and Philip. We had... More

There's not much to say about a B&B except that it was nice and warm, clean and good value for money. Didn't spend a lot of time there, as we were going to a party elsewhere, but would certainly have no hesitation in recommending it. Minor niggle was that the card machine didn't work, so we had to pay cash... More
