It is very nice - luxurious. The breakfast was great and looking out to the gardens was lovely from the dining room. We were shown a delightful walking trail out the back gate that took us into town and avoided the busy main road. If we had more time, it would have been nice to explore this more as it... More

Stayed two nights in Sallyport House with another couple midway through our vacation in Ireland. Wish it could have been longer. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Janie, we felt that we were in our home away from home. The house is spotless, and the rooms beautiful and elegant with antique furniture. My husband and I stayed... More

Of the resort, hotel, and three B&B's we stayed in while vacationing in Ireland, Sallyport House was by far our favorite. I chose it based on a family recommendation to stay in Kenmare and the outstanding reviews for Sallyport on TripAdvisor. It turned out to be a great decision on both counts! We stayed for three nights in the middle... More

We recently spent three nights at Sallyport House and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The B&B was spotlessly clean, our room was very comfortable and well equipped and our hosts were friendly and helpful.

We stayed two nights at Sallyport House and wished we could have stayed much longer! This was the most lovely Bed and Breakfast of our 2 week stay in Ireland.

We just spent two nights at Sallyport and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is in a wonderful location, overlooking Kenmare Bay, an easy walk to town but quiet. The walk to town is delightful, going through trees and along the bay. John is a gracious host with excellent advice on restaurants and things to do. The breakfasts were delicious, the... More

We have just spent three nights at Sallyport and it was lovely. The rooms are large with lots of cupboard space. The bed was so comfortable. There are lots of interesting antiques and pictures around the house. The breakfasts were great including fresh fruit and yogurt to start.

What a wonderful surprise in Kenmare. Ideally located between the Beara and Kerry Peninsulas. Waterviews everywhere. Run by family members who were born in the house; it makes you feel at home. Our room (#3) was superb, more of a junior suite than a single room. Breakfasts (included) were fabulous. The family will give you terrific recommendations; follow their advice... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
