The Lodge

Rosemarie Quill's large, purpose-built guesthouse is just 3 minutes walk from the centre of Kenmare town.


At guesthouse prices, it offers hotel-style accommodation: spacious rooms have king size beds, everything you could possibly need - including controllable central heating, phone, TV, safe, iron/trouser press and tea/coffee facilities, as well as well-finished bathrooms. There is also plenty of comfortable seating and even a bar.


Breakfast is served in a pleasant dining room, where tables are set up attractively with many details that come as a nice surprise in such pocket-friendly accommodation - including layered tablecloths, fabric napkins in napkin rings, and dishes of marmalade, jam and honey (not prepacks).


Fresh fruit salad, juices and cereals are set out on a sideboard and freshly baked bread, scones and toast are delivered to the table along with pots of tea and coffee. Rosemarie cooks hot dishes from the menu to order - including tasty scrambled eggs with Kenmare smoked salmon, as well as the Full Irish and other traditional breakfast dishes.  


All round, a good place to stay.
