You couldn't have a better location for enjoying all that Kenmare has to offer. The kitchen had everything you needed for your stay. The bed was very comfortable. With a great shower and lovely bath to relax in.

But the cost of oil and electricity in household which was not used overly came to 50euros plus. So when you book add this to the bill.

Matresses on both double beds uncomfortable, sagging in the middle. Damp patches on wall in front room. Very strong smell of oil in utility when boiler was on.
