My husband and I stayed at the guest house in August, 2013 whilst travelling around Ireland. Knowledge of this sweet little guest house came via a close Irish friend who lived very near us in Australia. We heard many accounts of the beautiful area and this guest house with the fabulous french chef and the delicious pastries. This info sent...

Called to this Cafe while driving to Derrynane. It had the most beautiful pastries and both I and my friend had a lovely lunch there. It also had a nice garden to the front and adequate parking. We look forward to visiting this cafe again. This house is also a bed and breakfast.

We stayed in a dozen facilities over 2 weeks in Ireland, and this was a favorite location. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The room was clean, large, warm, and comfortable. It was quiet and located well within walking distance of town center. We have 5 young kids and the staff were very accommodating. The breakfast, made with homemade...

Rose Garden is a reasonably price B&B and the rooms are standard if a little basic. However the breakfast is amazing. Some of the best bread I've ever eaten and amazing French pastries. The breakfast cook is very talented. The owners were very friendly and welcoming I would definitely recommend staying there.

What a great welcome - a table laden with goodies and a great cup of hot chocolate. Relaxing and charming. A good night's sleep and a great breakfast to set us up for the day. What more could one want?

The Rose Garden is a super B&B in Kenmare, County Kerry, Ireland. It's well located; a 5 minute walk to the center of Kenmare. It's clean, comfortable, with good beds and delicious breakfasts. Best of all are the warmth and kindness of the hosts Jerome and Vladamira. Jerome, who is a French native, also bakes great French bread, cakes and...

We ate a lovely Breakfast here on our last morning in Kenmare and what a feast, enough to nourish us Northerns all the way home. Portions are extremely generious on the cooked breakfast selection and would do two. The pride of all were the bakery items all displayed as you enter, Croissants that are so light and buttery without the...

Unlike other reviewers, we were disappointed with this B&B. The bathroom should have been cleaner. Our bed sheets were worn threadbare. The pastries were excellent, though.

This B&B is right on the Ring of Kerry. A 5-10 minute walk to the heart of Kenmare via a lighted path. The owner is a pastry chef so be sure to try some. These are not included in the rate but well worth it. Be sure to try the lemon tart - excellent. Very helpful with suggestions for pubs...

We were booked into this B&B by a friend who lives closeby, and as a gay couple I am dubious about B&Bs and dealing with some people predjudises who own them. I prefer to stay in Hotels. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and Although the owner questioned the double bed booking, it was...
