Loved the location and the rooms, very comfortable. Breakfast was easy and great. We came on the off season so we didn't need to worry about noise or crowds. Check in was easy. Loved the town. Would come again!

We stayed here for two nights and were pleasantly surprised by how quiet it was. We didn't even hear other guests. The morning breakfast was cooked to order and was delicious! It is on the main street, but there was no traffic noise, either. Lovely place to stay. On the street pa

We really enjoyed staying here. Loved being above the bar. At night you go down and listen to the live music. It was not a noisy hotel. Their breakfasts had plenty items to choose from, as well as the traditional Irish breakfast.

I am concerned about the parking. The place looks great but is the lot just for the b&b or is it a town car park? Thanks
We parked on Main street. There should be plenty of parking spaces within walking distance. But don't worry if you are staying overnight. Parking is free from about 6p.m. until 11 a.m. They will advise you in the guesthouse.

I'm confused about this property. I see the bar/restaurant is located on Henry Street but where are the actual guesthouses located? Are they in the same area?
There is a door left from The pub ...

Hello! I am looking to be in Kenmare with my husband and 2 kids in March, this place looks awesome. How far away from the b&b is the 2 bedroom suite? Was parking ok? Was heat/hot water ok? Many thanks!!
Hi Emma, the parking it is behind the hotel, furthermore you can leave the car in front the hotel till 9 00,it is free,at that time the room was pretty comfortable with hot water and heating as well.what dou you mean for How far away....., the hotel it is composed with 3 floors!!!!!

Is the craic good
Yes, very good- food was excellant- breakfast was awesome- try their white putdding was the best we had in Ireland- all homemade. Music was great, had entertainment every night. We were there for 2 nights & both times had good conversations with other people. What is nice about Ireland is no one is afraid to sit with others if no tables are available. Wasnt loud up in the rooms ( but then we shut down when the pub did, lol, but it was around 11:00 pm anyway) Staff & owners were extremely fun . Was busy all the time even during the day- we usually like to try different places out, but when we went for a walk around Kenmare we discovered no other places were busy like O'Donabhain's so we figured it was a no brainer to go for our second dinner & we were not disappointed. Really recommend this place- hope you enjoy has much as we did.

"Third floor and to the rear of the building."
"You will need to navigate steps to your room."
"Higher r9om numbers are away from the street."
