Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

We spent one night in Foley's, located right in the heart of Kenmare. Our room was comfortable and attractive. Our breakfast the next morning was tasty, and the guy cooking and serving it could not have been friendlier. The wifi signal was strong in our room, something I always appreciate. I would be delighted to stay here again.

We visited Kenmare at the start of the season (April) with a large (12 people overall, 6 kids) and demanding group of friends and family. For three days in a row, Foley's accommodated the - usually ravenous - group after a long day of hiking, seal watching, etc., meeting our peregrine requests around seating arrangements, pets, and so on. That...

What a wonderful surprise! The rooms were decorated in a modern vintage style, but with a lot of clean and crisp amenities. We also love windows and opening them, and our room had two. It was a great place to stop in.

We stayed for 3 nights whilst on a busy trip of business and pleasure. Room was comfortable and warm, ensuite bathroom was fine and we had all the facilities we needed. Breakfast was superb each day and we were asked each evening what time would suit us as we had to be away early each morning. We ate each evening...

We spent a week one of the Ard mullen holiday homes: a very comfortable house. Walking distance to Kenmare, childrens playground, pubs and shops and perfect starting point for trips on Iveragh and Beara! We had a friendly welcome and the house was clean. Some minor maintenance points were not taken care of (light bulbs, broken tile, blocked roof gutter),...

I disliked several things about my stay. I was asked to pay on arrival, which is not common practice and immediately made me dislike the place. The cold tap goes warm occasionally so you don't want to drink the tap water, but there were no complimentary bottles either. The breakfast was basic, the coffee terrible. There was a dripping sound...

We stayed at one of the holiday homes in Kenmare and got to really enjoy this community.It was a short walk into the town center where we could get anything we needed.The home was fully equipped and made our visit very comfortable.I have stayed at other places in Ireland and this one tops them easily.

We came as a film team and took 5 houses with Foleys - a fantastic move for everyone with great comments from the entire crew and cast. We were of course out on set for long days, but staying in these houses ensured a warm welcome home after some challenging wet days.

Very friendly place and we had a good view from our room which overlooked the street with pubs and small shops all along it. We enjoyed the Irish singer in the evening who was happy to sing requests for people. Lovely full Irish breakfast but choice of healthy option for those who wish it.
