This property is a cafe with rooms in the back. Rooms are enough away from the cafe so there is no noise. Rooms are along a hallway, very basic. Room #4, is a very simple accommodation. It was quiet, had adequate shower, sink, toilet, small TV, desk and chair. Mattress was terrible. Walls are thin. I could hear water running....

The rooms were nice and very clean. The establishment is new and in very good condition. Mary is a lovely and charming hostess. Her breakfasts were absolutely delicious. To walk down to the centre part of town, we strolled through a beautiful pathway. I really don't want to share this b&b with anyone, I would like to keep it to...

The accommodations are very nice, very clean with a lot of personal touches by the owner (Mary is great). The cafe is inviting with windows looking out on the garden. It's just what you want to see when you emerge from your room, a little bleary from a night at the pubs. A great selection for the included breakfast but...

I stayed on a Friday night prior a race competition. The manager was extremely helpful and accommodating to my needs before and after the race. I really appreciate the effort she made to make me feel at home. On the room I felt comfortable and I slept well. It was clean, so it was the bathroom. The cafe has lovely...

Spent two nights at the Rose Garden B&B, as booked by hiking provider. The B&B is located right on Kerry Way trail. The room was clean and the shower had plenty of hot water and good water pressure. No shower gel, shampoo or hair dryer provided. Our room was near the night B&B entrance and it was very noisy. Also,...

Thank you for your review. Our B&B is located on the Kerry way trail, and is an ideal location for anyone walking this route. I do have to correct you however on the distance to town, there is a foot path which is also part of the Kerry way, and even for a slow and inexperienced walker, this walk takes...

Stayed the night before driving the Ring of Kerry and they were friendly and the room was clean. Shower had lots of hot water and great water pressure, full Irish breakfast was delicious! Walls were a bit thin, but they weren't very busy so we didn't have any real issues, just could hear some people in the hall

Brilliant location - only a 10 min walk into town. Room was standard - no view, but comfortable. Nice garden space outside but on the main road.

We stayed for two nights at the Rose Garden and enjoyed our time there. The owner, Mary was very friendly, responded quickly to our emails, and helped us with travel ideas and dinner recommendations. The location is a quick 5 to 10 minute walk to downtown Kenmare and they have plenty of parking on site. The rooms were pretty standard....
