Our room overlooked the falls which were spectacular! One day we walked for 4 hours around the estate, following the river for a calm, relaxing beautiful walk. The hotel was very elegant and wait staff were tremendous.
The stay was short, but we enjoyed it. We were caught in the rain, and I was a bit sick, so I was happy to find the room was warm and inviting. The couple who own the home/B&B were very nice and served hot tea and cake upon our arrival, and hot whiskey when they found I was under the weather. The owner also drove my husband into town so that he could buy some dinner. Simply a grand stay, and I highly recommend it to anyone.
"Stayed herel before but wouldn't stay here again"
Hotel excellent location for Kenmare and touring Ring of Kerry etc. Staff friendly. But...
a) Car parking poor - most days had to use the car park for the adjacent leaisure complex.
b) Food in restaurant OK but not up to standard of many of Kenmare restaurants; service mechanical. Breakfast just about acceptable, but coffee abyssmal and bread not up to Irish standards.
c) Bed poorly sprung and pillows uncomfortable. Decor in room abyssmal - curtain rail had been lowered in past, holes in wall had not been repaired and wall repainted.
d) Bath took ages to fill, water had peaty colour
e) Woken up early every morning by coach passengers with early departure making noise in corridor and bouncing cases down the stairs
f) no obvious lift to upper floor
We drove into Kenmare, tired after a long day of sightseeing. The town center was busy and crowded with parked cars, so we were happy to find a parking space right in front of the hotel. The staff was pleasant and efficient. We were very tired so elected to eat on site. We had a quiet pleasant dinner. The lobby was enticing and empty so I brought my book down and read in front of the fire before bed.

"Nice friendly hotel with local flair. Great local"
Great! Music was loud when turning in before 1130pm. Towels could be updated and ditch the plastic flowers in window boxes. Overall staff were great, awesome hot cooked breakfast to liking and great location.
The decor and furniture is a bit outdated, but it's clean enough. Cobwebs to be found in corners, but nothing drastic. Clean linen, floors, and shower, which are the important things. Nice man who runs it. Google maps has the wrong location, it's just inside of Kenmare, and you turn on the road that's just across the street from the Topaz station and you'll find it at the end of the short road there.
Along the Iveragh Peninsula coastline, one of Ireland's most scenic routes links Kenmare, Killarney, Killorglin, and Cahersiveen. Visitors can stop at Derrynane House where Daniel O'Connell lived for most of his life, tour 6 cottages at the Bog Village Museum, and take a detour to Rossbeigh, Kerry's most popular beach. A bridge links to Valentia Island, which offers views of the Skellings Islands.
