Booked and stayed at driftwood whilst on business, the room was ideal whilst using my computer in the evenings with the free Wi-Fi. The room was of a very high standard and very reasonably priced. The breakfast was excellent and allowed me to have something different each morning from the menu.

This is a large property about a 10 or 15 minute pleasant walk (dependent on how fit you are) from the centre of Kenmare. Our room was spotless as was the bathroom with soap and shower gel for use for the duration of your stay. We stayed three nights and the towels were changed every day without request or leaving...
