Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The owners were so helpful and the breakfast was lovely, a pretty stroll into the town. We loved the town and things to do in the surrounding area. We recommend to others the town and this B&B. There is a lot to see and do close to this accommodation

Stayed recently at Druid Cottage, Kenmare and I have to say we couldn't fault the place. Bedrooms were cosy and are set in a quaint 200 year old cottage. The hosts Bernadette & Philip were lovely people and went out of their way to help us with lifts to our car, etc. The breakfasts each morning were delicious and Philip always plenty to converse about. Would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone visiting this beautiful Kerry town.

The gentleman who I believe owns the B&B didn’t have any room for us, but instead of sending us away he found us the 1 available room in the whole village as a bicycle event was happening. Would recommend to anyone looking for a beautiful property and a kind host.

Couldn't fault this stay. Friendly hosts couldn't do enough for us. Breakfast was perfection, the room and house were beautifully quaint. Bed linen and bed were so comfortable. Hosts gave us tips on where to go and eat, really top class stay

Room Tip: The initial entrance due to covid restrictions was very formal but the hosts were lovely people...

Property has great character. Very comfortable room. Beautifully cooked breakfast and room serviced each of the 3 days we were there. Hosts full of information and chat. Very convenient to town. Area a great base for all the peninsulas of Kerry and West Cork. Price was very fair. Could not find any negatives about this guesthouse. Many choices offered for breakfast. All Covid safety procedures fully adhered to. Normally tea and coffee making facilities offered but due to covid restrictions this is temporarily unavailable. However, owner offered us refreshments on arrival. Thanks for that.

One of the best bnb experiences in a long time. Spotlessly clean, excellent breakfast with fresh fruit, fresh coffee and a full Irish breakfast. Hosts were brilliant, very helpful, checking in to see if anything was needed, then leaving us enough space to enjoy ourselves. The garden is beautiful, full of birdsong by day, and lit up by magical lanterns at night. I would Definitely recommend this place to anyone and will return again.

I am not going to even waste any more of my time on this person typing my experience. Avoid at all costs plenty of better options in Kenmare. Customer service is not in the equation at all for this business. I have never experienced anything like it in my life.

from the moment my wife and i arrived at this property we got the coldest welcome imaginable. It felt like we were not paying customers in any form. I can safely say I have never met anyway so rude in all my life. We were booked in for 2 nights and on the following morning after sleeping on what felt a bed of nails we were both looking to take a shower. My wife wanted to wash and condition her hair but when turning on the electric shower and without any adjustment to the temperature setting the shower would completely scolt you and in another 2 or 3 seconds freeze you. From my experience with showers the element was giving trouble. However my wife managed to get a quick wash by ducking in and out when the water was manageable to stand under. The host called to see if we needed the room serviced and I said its fine but can I show you the shower as there is a problem with it. She immediately became defensive saying none has ever had a problem with it before. I asked her into the room to show her which she refused to come in and said where do you think I will get an electrician now, very smartly. I had to go without a shower but after that we decided to cut our holiday short and not bother staying the 2nd night. The host returned and said it would be evening before an electrician would be available and said if you want to leave you can and I will refund you for 1 night. That was the most decent thing she had said since our introduction. We both delightedly packed our bags and left within 10 minutes. I have never met anyone so hasty and aggressive in such a role as managing a b & b. Honestly she would put a downer on anyones holiday so I will never darken this door again. I never leave reviews about places I have stayed but really had to leave one here, worst experience of my life.

We stayed in a gorgeous room with a feature stone wall and a wooden beamed ceiling. It was so cosy and quaint. Even though the weather wasn’t optimal, at night when the rain fell the loft was at its cosiest. The breakfast was amazing with so many options (we both had fries with fresh orange juice, coffee, tea, brown bread and white toast) and the hosts couldn’t have been kinder. They even showed me their little kittens. This has been our favourite place we’ve stayed so far. Couldn’t recommend more. We will be back!

The rooms are small, but creatively fitted to have all amenities. We did not feel very welcome by the host. Having arrived from a full day hiking in the Irish countryside we had some mud and asked to clean ourselves off before entering, but the host seemed to never have seen hikers arrive before... A bit odd considering it's a B&B on the Kerry Way. She was not unpolite, but certainly did not give a warm welcome. We arrived in the breakfast room 10 minutes early and were rushed off back to our rooms as if we were 5 year olds. She was equally cold to other guests in the morning. The breakfast was very good though!
