Nice place to stay close to the town center
Peter and Mignonne were kind and helpful hosts. There was a great selection of breakfast items that you could choose from for Peter to cook. The house was in a great location close to Kenmare. We walked to the town center and it only took 10 minutes.

Well, I arrived a bit later than expected, but check in was really easy! The bed was super soft, and breakfast the next morning was amazing. Definitely recommend!
