This was the only B&B that we stayed 2 nights at and we were so glad we did. We loved the city of Kenmare but more importantly loved Peter the host. He gave great recommendations and we say a lot due to his recommendations. He also provided maps and brochures for us that we found very helpful. The breakfast was...

My husband and I stayed at Driftwood for one night en route from Dingle to Kinsale. The B/B is a short stroll from the pretty little town of Kenmare. Our room was spacious and tastefully decorated and provided all the necessary amenities. MIgnon grew up in the area and was a wealth of information for suggesting all the "must sees"....

This was a great stop. A longish walk out of town but quiet. The house itself is modern and spacious with a nice lounge to sit in and lovely breakfasts. We were given maps a nd suggestions for the next leg of our journey which was most welcome. Nothing like insights from locals. We would thoroughly recommend Driftwood and would...

There is alot of choice in Kenmare, but ours was not a disappointment. A bed and breakfast oozing with style and quality. Peter and Minogne (sorry if I spelt it wrong!) were so kind and could not have been more accommodating and helpful. We really felt at home as the villa was comfortable and very stylish. Having been to Louis...

We stayed at Driftwood last week while on our honeymoon, and were so thrilled that we did. Peter and Mignonne were absolutely wonderful hosts, and made us feel right at home. Our room was spotless and perfectly sized. Every room in the B&B had a breathtaking view, including our room. Breakfast was amazing, from the eggs and bacon to the...

Very clean; Beds the most comfortable we've seen during our trip to Ireland; food was good and hosts were friendly and helpful and willing to please. The view of the surrounding area was very suburban; mountains were pretty in the distance. Some downsides are: didn't like the airfresheners in every room; although well meaning, the owners touched and moved our...

Hi there, Thank you for the nice comments about your stay at driftwood, however the cleaner is tasked with cleaning the room to a high standard and is told to replace furniture to its correct position if moved and also to hang up clothes were possible into the wardrobe. The cleaning of the room requires maneuverability with the vacuum cleaner...

This B and B is easy to find, has good parking and the rooms are well equipped. The ensuite was clean and the breakfast offered choices and ours meals were both very good. The location is pretty central and we got a warm welcome. Would recommend this spot.

We stayed at Driftwood for a few days in early October. It is a lovely spot, very clean and well appointed. The hosts were friendly and helpful and made our visit a pleasure.We spend a couple of evenings reviewing our photographs in the comfortable lounge. Breakfasts were a delight in the bright dining area. The B&B is just a short...

My friend and I stayed here whilst cycling around the area. The room, breakfast and location were all excellent. The owner was also extremely helpful when we needed to clean up our bikes after a run in with a road newly laid with thick tar! Could not fault.

We were greeted by Peter who was a fabulous host, ready with pointers on the trip and recommendations for dinner. The room was clean and nice. Breakfast was delicious! While I enjoyed the mushroom omelette, fresh baked bread, and fresh fruit cups, my mom was thrilled with her pancakes with blueberries. Driftwood was just a short ten minute walk from...
