Kenmare is a great location for exploring the SW Atlantic Coast. There are a huge number of restaurants and bars to walk to from this Bed and Breakfast, but we really enjoyed the restaurant and pub right in the building. The rooms here are ample (ours had space for 4, although there were only three of us). This is nice...

Dreaded staying here after reading some of the bad reviews... Not sure if those written are based on where I stayed!!! Had a single room over the bar. Room was modern, very spacious and most importantly it was clean. The staff here were very welcoming and friendly. Breakfast the following morning was lovely. Five stars to both the girl that...

Enjoyed our stay here. It's right on the Main Street so extremely handy for a great weekend break. Place was spotlessly clean everywhere. If I had any gripe it was towels were very thin . Apart from that great stay .

We stayed at another B&B above a pub the evening before in Killarney and hence was not looking forward to this stay. However, what a different experience. The rooms were spacious and clean. The staff was very pleasant and the free breakfast was very good. The pub below served really good food and again everyone was very pleasant. The location...

Stayed one night to attend a family funeral. Staff were nothing less than helpful and accommodating in every way, the room was lovely, peaceful and clean. Breakfast was delicious. I'd highly recommend this accommodation.

WHAT CAN BE BETTER THAN THAT as we tour Ireland with our family! The staff was friendly and helpful! I had to email hotel directly because I couldn't seem to reserve 3 rooms online. Jer promptly emailed me back. Thanks! The eight of us had 3 rooms. We all had tasty meals in the Pub including the kids. As the...

This guesthouse deserves 5 stars. It is located right on the main street in Kenmare where all the pubs, shopping and restaurants are located. The rooms are very nice. Bigger than I expected and very clean. If you are looking for a nice place to stay and a convenient location you need to book your holiday at O'Donnabhain's.

Bnb with gastro pub underneath. It's not really cosy but it works it's way as a pub. Rooms are not really clean, no lookout at the windows, really old and damaged windows and noisy because of the aircon of the kitchen, beds are just standard, breakfast is not really a high standard. Pub & meals are ok but really little...

Overpriced for the actual quality of the room. Would look elsewhere next time. Parking is on the street. Was expecting more based on the reviews I read but it was only one night. Clean for sure, but super-dated.
