On the way to visit the Beara Peninsula during our last trip to Ireland, me and my husband decided to have a one night stop in Kenmare.There are many B&B in this town; by comparing the reviews we eventually booked one room at the Fogerfield B&B, which is between the highest rated ones.
Once there, you soon understand why. The B&B stands a little far from the town centre (almost 3km), in a very quiet location. The house, managed by the kind couple Sheila and Sam, welcomes with its outside spotlessness and this positive impression continues once inside; our room, in particular, impressed by the hugeness (probably the larger one we've never seen during our Ireland trips) as well as for the cleaniness, the fragrance and the simple but stylish
furniture. Plenty of space in the bathroom too, with a very effective shower and an unusual touch of care: two pairs of disponsable shower slippers, to be used at guests convenience.
The standard room coffe & tea facility was completed by a pair of water bottles.
In the morning we had the full Irish breakfast and was outstanding; I also got the chance to taste the other continental breakfast options, which was indeed of the same high quality.
There's just one minor fault to mention and it's about to the difficulty we get to reach the B&B. That was a very long and intense day for us (which included the trip to Skellig Michael) and once in Kenmare, very tired, we sadly found out that the address(es) put in the gps didn't allow to reach Forgefield. It took a pair of calls to Sheila and Sam to sort out.That was a little
bit stressful. We just do feedback to put on the main road the sign that B&B guests usually expect to find. Anyway this does not affect our experience at all, so we rate this B&B as flawless and therefore very highly recommended!
