We thoroughly enjoyed our five nights at The Willows! Paul and Greta were wonderful hosts...and fixed delicious breakfasts! Paul was helpful in finding us a ride from Glengarriff to Kenmare when we were in a pinch. As a result we met a fabulous tour guide whose tour was one of the highlights of our trip. The room was exceptionally clean....

I generally would not write a bad review for a property as I feel places can have a bad day but this time I felt I had too. I was visiting Kenmare with my friend to participate in the Ring of Beara Cycle race. On arrival to the B/B the welcome was not as friendly as I would have imagined....

Generally I don’t respond to the niggardly scratchings of disgruntled keyboard warriors revelling in the anonymity of TripAdvisor since I feel issues are best resolved at the time and face to face. However, I well recall you Shane and your travelling companion . The pair of you arrived as we were trying to find suitable accommodation for two walkers we...

When booking this B&B the owners made the place sound like it was quaint and whimsical. We didn't quite get what we expected. It was not as close to the main streets as expected but it does have a small parking lot! The decor is a bit worn, over decorated but not exactly cozy. The room was cold and plain....

We had a great couple nights with wonderful hosts Gretta and Paul. They were very helpful explaining how everything worked in the room and giving us recommendations for restaurants and things to do around Kenmare. They both had great senses of humor which made the visit that much more enjoyable. The breakfasts were great as well and very filling, highlighted...

Comfortable and spacious room within walking distance to town, restaurants, shopping. Convenient central location to tour in many directions - Ring of Kerry, Ring of Beara and Killarney. Stayed three nights but easily could have used this location to stay longer to see and do more. Paul was entertaining and a GREAT source of info on where to go and...

Paul and Gretta were wonderful hosts. We arrived later than expected and had to leave early the next morning, but enjoyed every minute we were there. The rooms were clean and nice. We even enjoyed a late night cup of tea after dinner. Breakfast was fantastic the next day too! We all thoroughly enjoyed the full Irish. We also have...

Booked it on booking.com but was phoned and asked to cancel (so they could keep the commission). The shower and TV in my room didn't work. On leaving they only take cash- presumably because they don't fancy giving the taxman anything either. When I asked for a discount due to the shower not working was given some quip about having...

We were on our honeymoon and rolled into Kenmare without a B&B in mind. The night before we looked up B&Bs on many sites and didn't find much of anything in Kilarney or Kenmare. We noted that many B&B's don't do website bookings as the commissions are high, so we drove into town without a reservation thinking we could look...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Willow Lodge, quietly situated in the grounds of the former Convent, is an "ideal location" as guests say, being only a short two minute stroll from the centre of town (three in heels !) And so away from the noise and bustle of the streets in town and the traffic. Parking is free here in our grounds and free WiFi is available for our guests convenience. So, no need to worry about what might happen to your car on the street overnight, or about town's hustle and noise coming up from the street or about dodging the early morning traffic warden. Our fees reflect the convenience of our proximity to town but if town is not busy an appropriate reduction may be offered. ... more   less
