I will be in Kenmare during the mid-point of my trip to Ireland this summer. By that time, I will need some fresh underwear LOL. Is there a laundry place that I could drop off early in the morning, have someone do it for us, and pick up at the end of the day. I do not want to waste time sitting in a laundry when i shold be touring.

What would something like this cost?

That's the ONLY kind of laundry service they have in Ireland, I've never seen a self-service "laundromat" like in the States (and presumably Canada?) where you sit and watch your laundry spin around for hours lol.

They're usually, (not always) called a "launderette" in Ireland, when I need one I just ask my B&B host. But I haven't done it in a couple years, can't recall the cost.

Found this for Killarney:


Nothing that I can find online for Kenmare. Doesn't mean it's not there, however. Locals will advise in due course.

and this is a Laundry List, so to speak, for Ireland!! Again, probably not exhaustive, including one in Tralee, Co Kerry:

Hi, I have visited kenmare a few times, in fact i just got back last week from Kenmare. I dont recall ever seeing a launderette in Kenmare, however the guest house or hotel that you are staying in will surely be able to advise you of the location of one.

Yes there is a laundry in Kenmare and quite a large one too, they do the service you are looking for. The local phone number is 41394 its half a mile out of town on the N71 molls gap road in a small industrial area beside Kenmare furniture...

Hope this helps....

just take enough to last the entire trip, or wash them out in your room and hang them on the radiator, they will be dry by morning....you can buy extra underwear cheaper than paying someone to was your old dirty drawers....hehehehehe....

We used the one in Killarney and it was 12 euro for a full load. Much more reasonable than our hotel which was 6.50 euro for one pair of jeans.
