We visited in mid March 2011 and arrived around dark, a little later than we wanted. But Brendan was there to welcome us and allowed us to have pick of an upstairs or downstairs room. We stayed in the first floor room and were a little disappointed. The room was a not tiny but not as large as some we stayed in during our trip. There was a full size bed and a twin in the room with a small desk and a wardrobe. The bed was a little firm for our liking and the drapes and bedspreads could use an update. Also, the carpet could use a good cleaning or replacement. With these updates, I would give Abbey Court 5 stars in the room category. The bathroom was on the smaller side, both of us could not be in it at the same time, but it did the job fine. The window looked out over the water.
The breakfast was wonderful with pancakes, eggs, and all the trimmings too! Very much enjoyed the breakfast room and the sitting room. The house itself was amazing! It has the castle look and feel with beautiful stained glass. Brendan gave us lots of advice on touring Beara and things to do in town and places to eat. We particularly enjoyed going to the pier he told us about to watch the sunset.
Overall we enjoyed our time at Abbey Court. We probably would try another location if the price were the same if we went back to Kenmare. However, I believe the pros outweigh the few cons at Abbey Court.
