Beautiful, sunny guest house on a quiet tree-lined lane, but just a few minutes walk from the town center. Modern, uniquely decorated, immaculately clean, convenient location, gorgeous garden, nice patio with lovely view, delicious breakfast. Margaret was very helpful with directions and advice. Our room was much bigger than most, and the common sitting room is especially nice. This was... More

we loved the warm atmosphere and the country side and modern decoration. A change from very traditional irish decoration, more younger but still very comfortable. We loved the way we have been introduced and the friendly discussion.

We were "drop ins"--no reservations, and we were treated great. Refreshments offered on arrival which was much appreciated after a long day. Easy walk to the downtown area and Margaret suggested a couple places for dinner. She was right on the mark as we had an excellent meal. Lovely decorations in the lounge, hall and breakfast areas. And, we were... More

Serene Riverville House is perched on a hill just a few minute’s walk from quaint Kenmare. Decorated with calming pieces of artwork and lovely furniture, the relaxing atmosphere is exemplified in the manner of the proprietor, Margaret. As a welcoming host, Margaret gives her guests enough breathing room to relax, but is also readily available to advise on the best... More

Passing through Kenmare than the Riverville House is a must! We stayed with Margaret and Fergus 10 years ago and it is still our number one stop when we come to Ireland. We will definitely return and highly recommend. Accommodating and friendly atmosphere they make your experience very enjoyable.

We had a lovely stay at Riverville House. The house is a short walk down a side road from the Kenmare town center. It has a beautiful garden complete with a sitting area for guests.

Kenmare was one of my favorite places in Ireland. The town is so beautiful and so clean! Margaret, at Riverville House, was a wonderful host. Her home was spotless and the breakfast was delicious. She was so helpful in helping us plan our Ring of Kerry drive. The comfortable sitting room with a computer with internet access was a plus.... More

“Ask for the room at the end of the hall upstairs if you are looking for a comfy king bed and big bathroom. It was very quiet and had a view of the garden. There are downstairs rooms of various sizes too and everyone (5) in our party was happy with their rooms.”
