B&B Reviews
I was advised to try and get a room in Virginias by a Kenmare local and I must say Virginias didn't disappoint. A great room with comfy bed and a bath too which is a big plus for me. Right in the heart of Kenmare the location was great and not far from anywhere, in fact you don't even need to go outside to get the best coffee in the county in the cafe downstairs. Friendly welcome from the ever helpful proprietor. Astonishing value for money and will confidently recommend to anyone looking for good accommodation in Kenmare.

Leslie - United States (March, 2016)
We had 3 rooms for our family's 1st trip to Ireland. Located right in the heart of Kenmare, we were able to enjoy much of what the town offered. Very clean, super comfy beds, showers with plenty of pressure and hot water, towel warmers, and homey appointments. Great new restaurant on ground floor, which had wonderful breakfasts without leaving the building including a drop-dead guacamole. Street-view rooms could be noisy. See about availability in the back for quiet. I personally enjoyed the street views with the pretty flower boxes right outside the window.

Clair Family - United States (September, 2015)
Virginia's was a lovely place that felt sort of like staying in your grandmother's guest room. Neil was so accommodating and friendly. He helped us with anything we needed. The coffee/tea/chess room was nice for our family of 4 when we wanted to plan the next day. The beds were comfortable and we had everything we needed! The location is perfect, but it is in the middle of town and can be noisy from the street but not terribly so. The restaurant downstairs Mick's and Jimmy's has fantastic coffee and breakfast food and their staff helped us with day trips as well.

Beth - United States (September, 2015)
We stayed at Virginia's for two nights. The bedroom was spacious and tidy and nicely decorated. The bathroom was clean, but the toilet flush did not work properly and the water in the tap took ages to go away. We only met the landlord on our departure day. He was very friendly, but it would have been nice to meet him before so he could tell us a little about the area. Breakfast is not included in the price, but it is in accomodations comparable to Virginia's. There is a nice cafe downstairs, with a huge choice of excellent food. Our bedroom was facing the street, so it could get noisy at night when people were going home from the pub. All in all we liked it there and Kenmare is a beatiful spot with many excellent restaurants.

Neil went above and beyond in helping to make sure we had a great stay at Virginia's. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom spacious, and breakfast downstairs although you have to pay additional for, was delicious. The location can't be beat, right on the Main Street yet near the end so you don't hear noise from the pubs.

Virginias was perfectly serviceable as a b&b in lovely kenmore; however, it was nothing special. The room was small and clean. The price was very good value but did not include breakfast. The owner was friendly but not particularly helpful. We had to park on the street about a block and a half away from the b&b.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay in Kenmare very much, and Virginia's was a very nice place to stay. Neil is a great host, welcoming, funny, and a good source of information. Having the library on the second floor, with tea or coffee always available, was a bonus. The only negative was that the rooms on the street can be a bit noisy in the early morning. Would definitely stay again if we're back in Kenmare. Soon, I hope!

Excellent, spacious,comfortable accommodations at a reasonable price. Neil and Noreen are excellent hosts. Due to issues in Chicago we missed our connecting flight which delayed our trip by one day. Neil and Noreen graciously rearranged our booking dates. Noreen also provided excellent tips that helped us save money during the rest of our trip. Not to mention the fantastic breakfast choices. On street parking is convenient and easy. The central location is convenient for walking to sites within the city and driving to locations within the area. Neil shared pubs, restaurants, and traditional Irish music venues that are not to be missed.

This contrasts with the B & B we stayed at in Galway whose owner or host never chatted with us or even took the time to ensure we were content. The shower was a bit cool. The food, average. The WiFi signal almost nonexistant.

Carla Bundy - United States (September, 2014)
Our stay was just for one night, but it was delightful! From the time of our first introduction, Neil helped us to find a parking place on the busy Kenmare street. We were able to park right in front of Virginia's Guesthouse because one of his friends/neighbors made sure that we would get her parking spot as she prepared to leave. If that hadn't worked out, Neil had been prepared to move his car so that we could have a convenient place to park! The reason that I stress this is because they were SO nice! Then, as we got settled in our room, Neil suggested a pub down the street for a meal and a chance to hear traditional Irish music! Wonderful! Breakfast the next morning was delicious! We were able to meet Eileen who was so friendly and helpful! My one regret...that we only had a chance to spend one night at Viginia's Guesthouse!

We had a beautiful stay in Virginia's Guesthouse, which was perfectly located in the middle of Kenmare. We were attending a wedding close to the town, and were given a superb welcome to Kenmare. I would absolutely recommend it, while it is a little pricier than a regular B&B the service and accommodation is more in line with a hotel service, to which is what I believe it should be compared.

Our stay at Virginia's was pleasant. They are conveniently located in town, walkable to restaurants, pubs and shopping. There is even a mini stonehenge type place close by that is peaceful and secluded, actually, in the early morning it's a pay on your honor type thing for admittance. The room was spacious, bed comfortable and generally quiet. Has the feel of a narrow 3 story place and the owners, both affable and accommodating are the ones making/serving breakfast in the morning you place your order the night before. The "white pudding" was the best I found while in Ireland tastes a little more like T'giving stuffing to me!. I would have no problem staying here again -- cost was reasonable when compared with our other B&B's on the trip. I certainly know that whenever I make it back to Ireland, we will go through this area again -- the drive to Killarney through the national park area is absolutely beautiful and we enjoyed Muckross House. Kinsale was a favorite though, and the drive there from Kenmare was also quite nice ... so, we'd be sure to go back to both!

A wonderful B & B run by two of the nicest people. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet and only steps away from all the shops, restaurants and pubs of Kenmare - a picture perfect town. The best, however, is the morning breakfast. Where most B & B's serve up typical full Irish breakfasts, the Virginia Guest House does as well, but with a gourmet twist that is not to be missed. Go for the Rhubarb compote and yogurt parfait for a starter, and I still dream about the Noreen Special. I would definately return.

Enjoyed our stay at Virginia's Guesthouse very much. Our hosts were very cordial and helpful. Breakfast was superb. Accommodations were comfortable and clean. The only thing that could have been better was the weather. Still. . .Thank You for a great visit to Kenmare.

Virginia's Guesthouse was one my favorite places I backpacked through Ireland for nearly a month. The location is easy to find right up the street from the bus stop & the center of town, the rooms were really comfortable and NOTHING topped the breakfasts! If you are stopping in Kenmare to see the Ring of Kerry, Virginia's is where you should stay.

We had a very pleasant stay at Virginias Guesthouse. We were warmly greeted at check in and felt right at home. The breakfast was the best one we had during our 10 day stay in various parts of Ireland. Delicious bread and spreads. I would recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Kenmare!

Virginia'a was hands down the best place we stayed during our trip to Ireland. Our room was quiet, clean, and comfortable, but the best part was Neil and Noreen. They were so friendly and hospitable, and even went out of their way to leave food out for us our last day since we were planning to be up and checked out before breakfast was served. Noreen's breakfasts were amazing. We usually like to try different places, but if we were to visit Kenmare again, we would never stay anywhere else BUT Virgiinia's!!

Good location right on the main street of a pretty little town. Our hosts were so friendly and helpful with information about local sights and sightseeing. The breakfasts were healthy and delicious and went well beyond the "full Irish breakfast," with lots of choices prepared on our requests from the night before.

Great location, wonderful hosts, top notch breakfast, and a price that's right. Right smack in town with free parking right outside, good home base for treks around the peninsula.

Neil and Noreen are very nice people and friendly hosts. Noreen's fruity muesli yogurt and banana pancakes are the best breakfasts we had on our 10 day Ireland trip. Their B&B location is accessible to everything in Kenmare. I would highly recommend this establishment to any traveler staying in Kenmare.

It was a pleasure being the guests of Noreen and Neil as they really spoiled us by providing an extremely good recommendation for dinner at Wild Garlic and providing a great breakfast! Very clean and the price was right although the room was small. Will definitely return and next time will request one of the larger rooms.

Excellent B&B. Magnificent breakfasts. Neil and Noreen were superb hosts. The only negative was that there was noise from the kitchen and the corridor in the early morning. We would recommend asking for a room on the top floor. We would be delighted to return to Virginia's.
