We spent three days in this B&B. The room en suite was quite nice and tidy. The breakfast generous and the staff attentive and pleasant.

Had delish Greek salad with beautiful soft feta and black olives and some sweetcorn fritters, they were sweet and crunchy and a really nice treat. I had a good debate with Mary about which cake to choose and ended up having two!! A piece... More

It's always been one of my favourite places to go during the day when I'm in Kenmare. But recently we went to an Indonesian buffet and had the best night. It's changed ownership since last summer but the new pair in there are playing a blinder. The food was some of the finest I've ever eaten in Kenmare and the... More

We stayed here for a one night break in Kenmare in May. We were delighted with our choice of accommodation as our hostess was super friendly, our room was comfortable and clean and really quiet. We had an amazing breakfast the next day. Great value for money. The only downside we could find is that we thought it was quite... More

We stayed here on a sat night in early may. We were greated by a very friendly lady called Mary who showed us to our room. She informed us that herself and her fiancé Vince (resident chef) had taken over the b&b and cafe six weeks ago. She also had loads of local knowledge on places to eat, drink visit... More

Stayed for 2 nights in Kenmare, the other night was in one the top hotels in area. Wished now had stayed both nights in Rose Garden instead. The B&B was cosy and clean. We had a baby with us and was glad the rooms had good solid walls so no one could hear baby crying during night, nor were we... More

It's scorching in Kenmare today and just had a lovely al fresco lunch at the Rose Cafe. Staff are very friendly and the coffee was great!

Beautiful location. Beautiful fresh tasty food. Your not eating on the side of the road amongst car fumes. Beautiful big garden. Great value for money.
