We stayed at Davitts for 2 nights on a recent trip to Kerry. The room was spacious, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Breakfast is cooked to order with a wide selection to choose from, and delicious! The staff make this place- extremely friendly and welcoming throughout our stay. They also provided some good advice on places to see. The only small... More

I have stayed here many times before, sometimes with family or friends but also alone- nothing has changed. The service, cleanliness, friendly staff, excellent food and lovely room make my stay just perfect. I love Kenmare and being an older woman I feel safe when out and about. I can't wait until I am back again. Thank you Mary, Andrea... More

It was quite a hike up a lot of stairs to our room and there was a lot of street noise since Davitt's is in town, but it was great to walk to everything in town and out to the stone circle. Our room and bathroom were very large which was great for all of our gear and the bar... More

I chose Davitts for a two night stay after many fruitless inquiries of Kenmare B&Bs. However, we were thrilled to discover very large rooms with lovely furniture. We were 3 people in 2 rooms. For each of us, this was our favorite accommodation from a month on Ireland's west coast. Rooms were quiet & away from the street. Although one... More

Davitts was spotlessly clean, very comfortable, with warm, welcoming and helpful staff. We had asked for a quiet room and were provided a perfectly silent and spacious room in the back of the hotel- you couldn't hear the street noise at all! Thank you! We had dinner downstairs in the restaurant which was incredible, and they were also able to... More

Friendly and eager to please staff, comfy and well-appointed room, delicious breakfast; all slap bang in the heart of delightful Kenmare! The generous checkout time gave us a relaxed start to a busy wedding day (not us!). Thanks to everyone at Davitts.

We booked in at the last minute. Got the last room which they told us was small and we could go and see it just in case we would not be happy. We had a look and it was small but perfect for just the two of us. Double bed, room was spotless, really nice bathroom which also had a... More

Stayed at davitts for one night on a tour around the west of Ireland. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Staff could not have been nicer and the breakfast was excellent with a wide range on the menu. Would definitely recommend staying there and is in the town center.
