We stayed one night as part of a short trip around Kerry. From check-in to check-out, it was a pleasure and fantastic value. Our room was on the top floor and full of light from the large skylights and had an excellent bathroom. The town has some great walks, which we enjoyed in the evening and the next morning. Dinner...

The accomodation is modern, clean and bright and warm when needed out of season . The restaurant is superb and whilst I appreciate that all people like different types of...

We have returned here again and again. The rooms are spacious bright and spotless. It is right in the heart of the town but the rooms being located to the back of the building are very quiet. The breakfast menu is better than what we got when we stayed at the sheen falls(5*) a coule of years ago and cooked...

Convenient, clean and comfortable with a spacious room for our family of three while touring Ireland. The town of Kenmare is charming with great music and pubs all steps from Davitts or just walk downstairs to enjoy the pub on the first floor. Great breakfast. I would stay here again (and again).

This small hotel is located in the core downtown of Kenmare - everything is close. Inside the hotel is tastefully decorated giving a sense of attention to detail. Our room (#8) had two skylights in a sloped ceiling. Superb accommodations! But, that's not all! The pub on the first floor maintains a first class restaurant. Staff are competent and genuinely...

For our first ever trip to Ireland we stayed for three nights at Davitt’s on the weekend of 17th August 2013 whilst we were in Kenmare for a wedding. Initially we tried to book at the large, commercial hotel where the wedding reception was being at. However, on being given a quote for an absurdly large amount for our stay...

Great choice has been to stay in this B&B, that I would rate more as small hotel rather than B&B. Just in the center of the small town and with a superb Bistro annexed and that serves very good food and music all togheter. The owners have been very warm and friendly during all our staying.
