Reviewed 29 July 2011

We were two brothers away for a couple of nights for the Irish Open Golf. Carmel was very helpful when we arrived at Lissyclearig Thatched Cottage at 6.30pm for one night. Tea, coffee, biscuits made available at this quaint B&B but we were busy playing with Mason, the family dog, before dinner in Kenmare. Room was quite nice with ensuite. There are 5 bedrooms. This place is lovely and different and well worth the price. The man of the house got up to make sure we had breakfast at...wait for it....6.30am. We were gone by 6.45am with a refund cos....I dont know!!! maybe we just didnt eat all our breakfast???
Nice people, nice place, authentic Irish feeling aboud!! We recommend!

This B&B couldn't be lovelier. Thatched cottage that the owner built himself, with charming decor and amazing garden. Comfortable and clean room and delicious cooked to order breakfast. Patient old sheepdog greets guests.

Stayed at Lissyclearig 2 nights during our recent trip to Ireland. We absolutely adored this cottage. Carmel the hostess was charming and friendly not to mention extremely helpful with planning some outings. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Mason the sheepdog is a charmer too. Carmel suggested we take in the town market in nearby Kenmare and it turned out to be one of the highlights of our entire trip. Would definitely stay here again if I had the opportunity. Thanks again Carmel!!

My wife and I are not hard to please, but we were very disappointed with this B&B. It was actually the worst place we stayed in Ireland in 3 weeks. The exterior is lovely and the location is very good, but that's about all that was good for us. Our bed was so lumpy that we had to sleep on top of the comforter, and we still couldn't sleep well. The shower had quite a bit of mildew growing in it, and the bathroom floor was dirty. While our hostess was nice and breakfast was good, we would definitely never stay here again.

We are a young family with 2 children ages 10 and 14. We travelled thru Ireland for 12 nights. Traveling from Kinsale, we drove to Killarny then to Kenmare in 1 day. Stayed 1 night at Lissyclearig. This is a great B and B and a great Value for families. The scenic drive from Killarney to Kenmare is one of the prettiest drives in all of Ireland. The town of Kenmare is picture post card Perfect; our vote for the prettiest town in Ireland. Carmel and David are great. We were welcolmed with coffee and tea on our arrival. My son Eli said it was the best coffee we had in Ireland. The breakfast here is first class; full Irish. The Inn is very pretty and unique; how often does an American stay in a Thatched cottage? Above all, visit Kenmare and do stay in this Inn. A great B and B run by a good Irish couple in a beautifull part of Ireland. This is a hidden gem!!

We had the pleasure of staying at Lissyclearig Thatched cottage on our recent family vacation. The cottage was charming, clean and comfortable. Carmel provides a delicious Irish Breakfast. She was very helpful in giving day-trip sightseeing tips and has a plethora of brochures and maps available for her guests. Mason, the sheepdog is sweet and a very good sport when it comes to photo opportunities!

I traveled to Ireland with 3 girlfriends last June and we booked 2 nights at Lissyclearig Thatched Cottage just outside Kenmare. We found this B&B delightful and so warm and homey. Our hostess Carmels was so helpful and friendly in the mornings and her Irish breakfast was delicious. The rooms were beautifully decorated and the surrounding property charming. If and when I return to Ireland I will certainly book a room at this wonderful B&B...we were so lucky to have stumbled upon it for this last trip. It was a memorable 2 days.
