I recently stayed at Arthur's Lodgewood for 4 nights with my husband and mother. This was my 3rd trip to Ireland and Arthur's Lodgewood is the nicest B&B I have stayed in. The bathrooms have plenty of hot water and provide shower gel, washcloths, soap and shampoo. There is air conditioning, but we didn't need it. House is beautiful, bed was comfortable, with beautiful linens. The breakfast was excellent, with a varied and flexible menu. Hosts Liz and Joe were friendly and helpful. There is adequate parking and it is easy to get in and out of the parking lot.
The house is within a few minutes walk of downtown Kenmare, which has several pubs with music in the evenings, good shopping (Glenaran and Quills), a harbor, ancient stone circle, a beautiful Catholic church. Kenmare is a good base for exploring the Southwest of Ireland. We made day trips to Mizen head, Killarney park, ring of Kerry, Dingle and Slea Head. I did not see any tour buses in Kenmare. Dingle was much more crowded with tourists and I am glad I chose to stay in Kenmare rather than Dingle. I hope to go back someday.
All rooms are upstairs, but my 82 year old mother was able to get up and down without problems, despite a bad knee. The house is set back from the Cork Road. A person with sensitive ears might notice the traffic. When we closed the window we didn't notice traffic noise. It never interrupted our sleep.
