    Nice historic hotel

    The Lansdowne Arms is a nicely restored and maintained hotel at a reasonable price. The lobby is quaint and inviting and the check in was fast and efficient. There is a limited amount of parking on site, but ample street parking nearby as well. The location is ideal for a walk around town, taking in the many shops, bars and restaurants. Our room was very spacious, clean and well maintained, as was the bathroom. Other than the hot water being a little slow to arrive, the bath was fine. The hotel has a nice pub with food and the service was good. The included breakfast was served in a lovely period dining room with cloth tablecloths and napkins. There was a nice selection of continental breakfast items as well as a hot breakfast with several options. We would recommend this hotel for quality and value.

    Pros: Location, lobby area, clean and comfortable room and great breakfast

    Cons: The air in our room, #104, was a bit stale and could have used an airing out before being occupied

    Location: Lots of shopping and dining options within blocks

    4/5 Good

    Delightful historical hotel.

    We drove into Kenmare, tired after a long day of sightseeing. The town center was busy and crowded with parked cars, so we were happy to find a parking space right in front of the hotel. The staff was pleasant and efficient. We were very tired so elected to eat on site. We had a quiet pleasant dinner. The lobby was enticing and empty so I brought my book down and read in front of the fire before bed.

    Pros: Classy historical building. Wonderful lobby with fireplace. Very comfortable. Excellent location at edge of town center.

    Cons: Carpet in hallways shows wear.


    Reasonable hotel.

    Location is convenient. Room was clean. We were on the street side and there was noise during the early evening. Breakfast was good not exceptional. Off street parking was provided.

    Pros: Location and friendly staff.

    Location: Stone circle was within walking distance. We were able to access the Beara Circle easily.

    Very charming antique hotel

    It's a nice, old, and very charming hotel in a very charming hotel on the Ring. It's a very lovely spot to stay in and walking distance to Cromwell's bridge. It's very old but it is well kept. They have a parking lot to the back of the hotel which is very convenient. The wifi doesn't work too well in the rooms but works in the lobby. The included breakfast is very nice on tablecloth and service is awesome. The lady at the desk was even nice enough to do some online research for some interesting stays for our visit to Ireland. We had dinner in the restaurant below and were pleasantly surprised - it was very good. I would definitely stay here again!

    5/5 Excellent
