Virginia's Guesthouse Kenmare
Ranked #22 of 61 Kenmare B&B and Inns
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Our family of six stayed at Virginia’s Guest House for one night in March. The guesthouse is located at the center of town, which makes it a perfect location in Kenmare. All the restaurants and shops are within a walking distance from the guesthouse.

Niel and Norren are wonderful hosts. Niel was very helpful and recommend several restaurants within walking distance from the guesthouse. The rooms were very comfortable and super clean. Noreen can cook an amazing breakfast. Her homemade bread is fabulous. If you are looking for a place in Kenmare that has a great location, comfortable rooms, friendly hosts and a great breakfast then Virginia’s Guesthouse is the place for you.

Neil and Noreen are perfect hosts, helpful, friendly and efficient. Breakfast is exceptionally good with lots of choice and great food.
The location in town is excellent for exploring Kenmare and the surrounding area. Very nice rooms, I would certainly stay here again and recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Front rooms can be a little noisy as the house is on a busy street.

We stayed here for 2 nights In March, and had a great stay. It is on the main st right next to whatever you need, as Kenmare is very small. The owners are very nice, and informative. The room was great and very clean. Breakfast was good, and their service was fantastic. Wi-Fi worked great and the price over all was well worth it. One of the best parts of staying there was across the street is a deli called the Truffle Pig. We got sandwiches everyday to go as we were out on our drives. You have to try the Truffle Pig, its awesome!!!!!

We spent one night with Noreen at her guest house which has an excellent location. The rooms were very clean, with comfortable beds and are larger than others we experienced during our trip. The breakfast was very good and nicely served. I would certainly return again and would recommend Virginia's Guesthouse as a good place to spend a few days. There are a number of stairs to go up with luggage however.

My niece and I stayed at Virginia's Guest House for one night over the Christmas holidays, and I wish that we could have stayed longer! Noreen and Neil were so good to us, and staying at their guesthouse in Kenmare was truly a highlight of our trip through Ireland! We drove in cold, rainy weather from West Cork to get there, and Neil was waiting for us when we arrived. He welcomed us and helped us get settled in our room. Our room was very cosy and we enjoyed a delicious dinner in a local pub. The breakfast the next morning was the BEST ever ... very healthy and delicious!! Also, I had had trouble sleeping on my trip to Ireland, but I had a wonderful sleep at Virginia's! The beds were very comfortable, and we didn't have any noise in our room.

The sun was shining the next morning, so we took a walk and met up with Noreen. She was so kind and walked and talked with us and gave us tips on where to go on our walk and in Kenmare. I highly recommend Virginia's Guesthouse. Neil and Noreen made us feel very welcomed in their guesthouse. We truly felt like we were at home there. I will definitely go back to Virginia's Guesthouse on my next trip to Ireland!

Neil & Noreen are wonderful hosts. Great location. No problem finding parking out front. Room was very nice and clean. Amenities included a fan and ear plugs for the noise from the street. You select your breakfast time and menu requests before you go to bed. Breakfast was DELICIOUS!!

Room Tip: request a room in the back. pub patrons are very noisy late at night.
