Charlene Bonham

★★★★★

Kenmare was a great choice for us to stay in Ireland, as we enjoyed having walking access to its many amenities, and close access to the Ring of Kerry and the Ring of Beara. And we met so many pleasant and courteous Irish residents in the shops and restaurants!

Clifford Baker

★★★

We had a great time visiting the Ring of Beara, the Ring of Kerry, the Dingle Peninsula, and golfing. We especially enjoyed the town of Kenmare where we shopped, went to the library for WiFi and had many great meals and heard authentic Irish music. We appreciated not being on a tour bus, but doing our own thing and getting to know the locals.

Kenmare is a beautiful village filled with kind and helpful people, fabulous restaurants. It's a comfy place to call home. We loved the music and camaraderie at Molly Gallivan's [the UnTours event].
