We had gone for a drive around the Beara Peninsula, and ended up in Kenmare by the early-evening. We both had the flu, and needed a place rest and recuperate. If you're heading to Kenmare in February, know that many of the places to stay are closed during weekdays. Thankfully The Lodge had a vacancy. The owner quickly fired up... More

We loved our stay at The Lodge in Kenmare. The staff were very warm and friendly, particularly the owner, Rosemary, who also provided some great travel tips. The room was immaculate and comfortable and the breakfast delicious.

This was a surprise to find a sort of Prairie style small hotel with elegant Victorian interior decor and furniture. We enjoyed our stay and they provided an excellent full Irish breakfast. Good location.

Arrived after difficult drive in torrential rain. No advance booking. Sean, Rosemarie's son was very help full and arranged a one night stay. Contrary to other reviews he helped upstairs to our very spacious room. Rosemarie is a delightful host with some wonderful tips regarding local sights and drives. Her advice regarding the drive around the Ring of Beara, was... More

This was a lovely lodge situated close to Kenmare town for easy walking. Two complaints: Rooms are on upper level and no one there to help carry our luggage upstairs or down and there is no lift. A nice, older gentleman who was a guest there helped me bring the bag down upon checkout. The girl at the desk just... More

We were immediately warmly greeted by Rosemarie as we arrived for our three night stay. Family members traveling with us had taken ill shortly before our arrival and Rosemarie was incredibly helpful when it became apparent that a doctor's visit was in order. All staff went out of their way to make things easier on the four of us as... More
