My husband and I recently stayed in one of the lodges in Kenmare Bay. We were very impressed with the attention to detail. Kitchen was well equipped. The house was spotless. Some really nice touches including toileries, ground coffee, tea, milk, biscuits. Open fire, baths, strong shower and a short stroll into town makes it an ideal location for a... More

We stayed here as a family of 4 on 2nd October 2016. We were absolutely impressed by the simple and modern design of our holiday home, which had 3 rooms (1 with a single bed, 1 with 2 single beds, 1 with a queen bed) all on the upper floor. There was a fully functional kitchen, dining area and living... More

We stayed in one of the lodges. When we first arrived, we were very happy with the place for the price. Coming from some terribly loud nights in Dublin, we were looking for some peace and quiet. However, the great deal wasn't so great. The mattresses were hard and lumpy. Stains on carpet, horrible old couches. The wifi stopped working... More

Myself and my husband stayed here for 3 nights during our trip to Kerry. We hadn't really wanted a self-catering option, but it turned out to be really good.
