“A beautiful house with great location”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We spent a lovely week in Kenmare. The house was a perfect spot for touring the area, e.g. Ring of Kerry. We especially liked the tastefully decorated rooms with neutral colours and the kitchen fireplace. Our teenagers loved their room on the top floor. Everything was well thought of although there was one minor thing to complain about. The master bed room mattress could be a little firmer.

“Well mentained and spacious but on tne msin street.”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My children and I had stayed at this cottage this past July. The house itself is well men tainted, clean and the service is readily available. Unfortunately, we had expirienced great
difficulties sleeping as the apartment is situated right at the major street and a roundabout and thus the traffic noise is easily audable.

“Lovely Home at a Great Location”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We recently stayed in this home with our two children. I can't say anything bad about our visit. The home is beautiful and wonderfully laid out. The location in the heart of Kenmare couldn't be better and the home manager was fantastic! Highly recommended!!!

“Perfect spot.”
Reviewed 25 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We have gone on holidays to Kenmare for the last five or six years. We have stayed in various different types of accommodation but this has bee the best by far. Beautifully decorated and bang in the middle of town. A few musts for kenmare are a pint or two in Crowleys, dinner in Pakies and do the Seafari cruise!

“Kenmare .......the place to stay”
Reviewed 16 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We enjoyed another super week in this special house right in the centre of Kenmare. We stayed for a week last year too. The house is most comfortable and has everything one needs and the owner is just down the road if needed. The best two restaurants in Kenmare are just around the corner.
We will definitely be back.

“A wonderful stay”
Reviewed 4 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We have just returned home after staying in this beautiful house for a week with our 5 month old son. You cannot get a better location - amazing pubs, restaurants and shops on your doorstep. The house is so tastefully decorated and it had every thing we needed for the week. it did not feel like a holiday rental - it felt more like a home. Cannot wait to return back to Kenmare.

“Home Sweet Home”

My son and I were fortunate to have stayed in this wonderful home. Communicating with the ladies at The White Room (booked through) was excellent. They were very helpful with restaurant and touring suggestions. We found free parking across the street every day. The house contained 2 very comfortable bedrooms and each were very spacious. In fact, the whole house is quite spacious. It is laid out on four floors and decorated beautifully. We enjoyed having a fire on many occasions and even cooked a meal on one of our nights. We bought lamb from the local butchers and the kitchen was very well equipped.
Most evenings we enjoyed the local restaurants; Packie's, Mulcahys, Davitts, The Breadcrumb and even did a fish n chip take out from Whartons. There are many amazing selections of great foods in Kenmare and all within a stone throw of the house. Crowley's is a great local pub to pop in to after dinner.
We certainly found Kenmare and the Shelbourne townhouse a perfect location for exploring all that Kerry has to offer. We would highly recommend staying here. A trip we shall always remember....Amazing!
