Where exactly is Kenmare city centre?

Hello- I am trying to select a B&B for Kenmare that is in/very very close to centre of town, but can't seem to find a map anywhere which shows the exact location of the city centre.

Anyone have a link they can point me to?

Kenmare is tiny: think "village"!

The centre is basically made up of three roads, which you could easily walk around in a few minutes: Main Street, Henry Street and Shelbourne Street.

Here's a map, which I hope will help:

Hi, Kenmare is small but lovely. Try these two sites Kenmare.ie and

Neiden.net both have maps of town and lists of b&bs.....

Whispering Pines is ten minutes from center of town (walking) and ten minutes to the bayside park. Great people too.

Kenmare is a small town and a B&B in the centre is best as you wont have too far to walk home after a session in one of the many great pubs in the town.

dave, Kenmare is not a "city". It's a small town (gorgeous!).

We have stayed at the Hawthorn House several times and I can recommend it (www.hawthornhousekenmare.com). It's literally at the top of the town, just a few minutes walk to anywhere. It's on Shelbourne Street and you can find a map of Kenmare at www.mapquest.com/maps…
