Hosts were so helpful with dinner and tour reservations (Neal even called Killarney to get us a Ring of Kerry tour and free parking since it does not run from Kenmare on Saturdays.). Best breakfast of all the B&B's we stayed in.

My wife, two adult daughters and I stayed at Virginia's Guesthouse in Kenmare on the nights of 21 & 22 June 2006, occupying two rooms at a total cost including breakfast of Euro 340. The guesthouse is situated above Mulcahy's Restaurant in Henry Street, smack bang in the middle of town, and a short walking distance to all attractions. It...

We stayed at Virginia's guesthouse in July 2006 and were extremele pleased. Neal and Noreen were perfect hosts: they advised us, booked rooms for our next stay and saw to all our needs. Their B&B is spotless, serves an excellent breakfast and the rooms are pleasant and not too small. We warmly recommend this place

Excellent location right in the middle of town. We were a bit anxious about street noise, but didn't experience any problems (maybe because is was a Monday night). Nice spacious room. Neil and Noreen are extremely friendly and accomodating. Other reviews have raved about the breakfasts, with reason. The menu has some very interesting options. The Pear/Bacon/Blue Cheese melt was...

We drove into beautiful Kenmare with no plans for accommodation. Virginia's was one of the first places we spotted in Henry Street, the main street. It was also listed in our accommodation guide so we gave them a call. Noreen (one of the owners) answered and was very friendly and confirmed availability, called her husband Neil who was at the...

My partner, mother, and I stayed at Virginia's for three nights in May 2006, and we loved it! Both of our rooms were simple but clean with ample space. The location in the center of town was very convenient, and we had no problem with noise despite being there for a weekend. All three of us would like to return!...

Based on the fabulous reviews from other TripAdvisor readers, we booked a night at Virginia's Guesthouse in Kenmare. By far, the best B&B we stayed in during our entire stay in Ireland. Not sure I can add anything that others haven't said except to say the place was as quiet as a church, the bed was comfortable and Neil, your...

My husband and I stayed here for just one night, but we would have loved to stay longer. Kenmare was a beautiful small town. Neil actually grew up in the house, and the room we stayed in was where he was born! The room was great and easy access to walk around town. We didn't have any problems with noise....

This is a great guesthouse. Nice big rooms, comfortable beds, centrally located. Noreen and Neil are lovely people, and make every effort to ensure you enjoy your stay. Many people have written about the breakfast. As soon as I finished breakfast, I started thinking about what I might have the next morning! Lots of places in Ireland do a great...
