Davitts is located in the centre of Kenmare. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. We stayed for 2 amazing nights and went for dinner there both nights. The menu had plenty to offer including, Steak, Seafood Platter, Pasta, Fajitas, Duck, Prawns and everything inbetween. It would be wise to book a table as each night it was packed. Hosts...

We were staying in Killarney first week in January 2017 and decided to do visit Kenmare. We have been in Kenmare before but it was many years ago. We stopped for a lunch at Devitts. My partner had a stew and I had chicken breast. The food was delicious, lady who served us was so friendly and talkative. The atmosphere...

We went to Kenmare on the spur of the moment, seeing some sunny days forecast. We chose Davitts based on TA reviews, and we were very happy with our choice. It was just like the photos. The bedroom was very large, and so was the ensuite bathroom. Very clean, and well appointed. There are several short flights of stairs to...

I have stayed here many times before, sometimes with family or friends but also alone- nothing has changed. The service, cleanliness, friendly staff, excellent food and lovely room make my stay just perfect. I love Kenmare and being an older woman I feel safe when out and about. I can't wait until I am back again. Thank you Mary, Andrea...

It was quite a hike up a lot of stairs to our room and there was a lot of street noise since Davitt's is in town, but it was great to walk to everything in town and out to the stone circle. Our room and bathroom were very large which was great for all of our gear and the bar...

I chose Davitts for a two night stay after many fruitless inquiries of Kenmare B&Bs. However, we were thrilled to discover very large rooms with lovely furniture. We were 3 people in 2 rooms. For each of us, this was our favorite accommodation from a month on Ireland's west coast. Rooms were quiet & away from the street. Although one...
