Driftwood
Ranked #20 of 61 Kenmare B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 May 2014

This place was so clean you could eat off the floors! Lovely, bright and quiet. Breakfast was excellent and prepared on order. It is a 10 minute walk from town or 2 minutes drive into the village. Peter recommended some excellent walks that were very rewarding for us. Highly recommend. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room simply, but tastefully decorated. Fantastic shower.

This place is spotless. Very clean n white n you will feel bad being messy n dirty. The host Peter is a good cook and prepared a lovely breakfast of pancakes(crepes) with fresh strawberries and maple syrup. Hubby had sausage, bacon n eggs. The bread was home made and tasted fantastic toasted n with some butter.
The city centre is abt 15 mins walk away and there are a lot of Irish food to choose from. Live music usually starts at 830 pm but since it's Ireland, expect Irish time as music didn't start when we left at 9pm ;)
Only regret is too short a stay.

We had an excellent stay at Driftwood. Peter and Mignonn were very friendly and helpful. We were greeted at the door upon arrival by name.

The entire guesthouse was nicely decorated in a contemporary style, with various pieces of driftwood used as decor.

Peter told us he paints over the entire house every year. Which explained why the entire premises look very attractive.

The garden was also very well kept.

Breakfast was great and the bread was home made.

My only comment was that the bathroom sink did not have a mixer. So you needed lukewarm water, you would need to fill the sink.

Highly recommended.

Driftwood Bed and Breakfast was clean and tidy accommodation in a lovely house. Good breakfast provided with lots of options. Very friendly hosts who provided us with great local recommendations for Kenmare and the surrounding area. Would definitely stay here again.

The Driftwood is in an excellent location, walking distance to the City Center. The room and the entire B&B is very clean, modern, and very well maintained. Peter and Mignonne were excellent hosts. The breakfasts were very well done. Bed was very comfortable.
We select our B&Bs based on Tripadvisor reviews. The Driftwood receives excellent reviews which reflect the B&Bs quality. You will not be disappointed in this choice.

Room Tip: Our room faced the front but the home is far enough back that there is no road noise.

We have just stayed at Driftwood on one of there special rates. An absolute fabulous stay, perfect beds, shower and breakfast, also a great host and exceptional value for money. Our location was ideal for visiting the golf course which we overlooked.

Room Tip: The front room was very quiet

A home away from home! Peter and Mignonne are lovely and make you feel very comfortable. Our room was lovely, the beds comfortable and it was nice and quiet. Peter cooked a great breakfast, we could choose grom 5 or 6 options and Mignonne sat with us after breakfast and plotted what we could do for the day with lots of local tips.
Kenmare is a nice, quiet, relaxed town that was nice to spend a night in away from the cities!
Thanks again Peter and Mignonne you have a beautiful home and business.
