Kenmare is small, and although there is a fair selection of possible accommodations, arriving later in the afternoon/evening may put you in a pinch. When we arrived my daughter and I set out running around looking for triple rooms while my wife car-sat (the town is small enough to hunt on foot). Upon checking back in at the car on...

This beautiful and well kept bed & breakfast was accented by the most courteous and helpful owners/managers. She easily accommodated our late arrival, and gave our three person family from New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, all the time and advice we needed. The family room we stayed in was very large and very clean with a spacious bathroom, and the off...

Our original Kenmare B&B double booked us and contacted Hawthorn House to see if they could accommodate us at the last minute. (My impression is that the local B&Bs work together and help each other out when necessary.) Hawthorn House accommodated us and honored our original rate, which I believe was cheaper than their normal rate. We stayed in one...

Very pleasant stay with my husband. Cozy room with king bed. Nice bath. Low water pressure. Super breakfast. Mary was terrific to us. Easy walk into sweet Kenmare so very convenient. Enjoyed our stay. Our room could have used a few creature comforts - like tissues - little things like that.

The Hawthorne House is exactly what a B&B should be like thanks to Mary's efforts. She is so outgoing and helpful, and makes you feel like you are her most important guest ever. Her breakfast in the morning really helps you start off you day right. We stayed in the building across from the main house. The room was large...

Quiet, spacious, clean room with a great breakfast. Mary was very knowledgable and her welcoming style was a delight. Parked the car and was able to walk everywhere and enjoy the ambience. Centrally located and one of the few B & B's that would take a credit card.

We stayed last year a week in one of the Hawthorn Lodge self-catering houses. The house is very well equipped, has a lot of space and the biggest advantage, it is very quiet although it is located directly in the centre of Kenmare. Mary gave us a very warm welcome and ensured that we had a pleasent stay. We will...

Mary's hospitality and generosity brings us back to Kenmare and Hawthorn House year after year. The rooms are immaculate and the breakfast sets you up for the day. Quite simply, the best B&B in Kerry.
