Noreen and Neil were the consummate hosts--helpful, friendly, and we can't say enough good things about the incredible breakfasts that Noreen prepared each day with outstanding table service by Neil: We found our room on the top floor to be tidy and spacious. The Guesthouse is located right in town, and though there is no parking on the premises, we had no problem finding a space within one block. We really enjoyed our stay at Virginia's Guesthouse.

Excellent B&B! Spacious, clean and bright rooms, incredible customer service and personable owners, delicious homemade food. Noreen and Neil were amazing hosts who took time to make us feel welcome and offered insight on the best hill walks, made our dinner reservations, advised on car troubles and woke up early to make our breakfast for an early flight. We highly recommend their B&B. Kenmare is a beautifully quaint town, and Virginia's sits in a prime location right on the main street. If we go back to Ireland, we will stay at Virginia's again!

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.
