Our experience at the Hawthorn House was exactly what we expected....wonderful hospitality from Mary, a great Irish breakfast to start your day, clean and spacious rooms, ,and a location right in the center of town. We could not have been happier with our selection of Hawthorn House! We will definitely stay here again on our return to Kenmare. Thanks for...

Great location near town centre. On site parking was a bonus as the town can get very busy. The room was large, the décor was a bit dated but it was clean and comfortable. We were very warmly welcomed by the hostess.

Bad points. The bed sheets smelt dusty. The bedroom carpet was stained. The grout in the tiles of the shower was cracked and broken and the shower door didn't close properly. The bathroom door wouldn't lock. The hostess Mary was very snippy and i felt quit unwelcome.She was very annoyed when i was checking out and wanted to be paid...

Had an enjoyable stay at Hawthorn House. Mary and her family were very welcoming. The room was comfortable and quiet, considering that the B&B is almost in the very centre of Kenmare. Substantial, relaxed, traditional breakfast. Wi-fi apparently soon to be fixed. Kenmare is a good base to explore both the Ring of Kerry and the Ring of Beara by...

Good: convenient, but quiet location, large room, strong enough shower, adequate drawer storage in the room Not good: no hot water the first evening and morning, a lounge that was unusable because it smelled so musty/moldy, abysmal wifi service (a deal breaker for us)--the only way I could occasionally get connected was to sit at the bottom of the stairs,...

The Hawthorn House is conveniently located in Kenmare, right in town but on a fairly quiet street. Our room was very large and quite comfortable and clean. The decor was a little old, and could have used some updating. Breakfast was good. Mary was charming and very helpful with suggestions of where to eat and what to see in the...

Hawthorn House is a B&B situated at the end of a street in Kenmare. We were given a very large and very clean room with a spotless bathroom. Mary was a delightful hostess and was so concerned about us being late, that it felt as if we were with family. She really made us feel welcome into her home. She...

The B&B sits at the end of 2 main streets through town and has off street parking. The rooms are clean and generously sized with comfortable furnishings,...
