Kenmare, Ireland - County Kerry, Home of Eileen's Place

Tucked into the scenic southwest corner of Ireland, Kenmare is a welcoming and convenient home base. The name Kenmare means ‘little nest’ in Gaelic, which perfectly describes the atmosphere of this charming town. The perfect departure point for the Ring of Kerry and Killarney National Park, Kenmare also puts the Beara and Dingle Peninsulas within reach. Home to the19th century Holy Cross Church and one of the most impressive ancient stone circles in the region, Kenmare has a rich history. Nearby Molly Gallivan’s Cottage and Traditional Farm is a 200-year-old cottage that shows how the people of Kenmare lived before modern technology.

Take a cruise in Kenmare Bay or try local horseback riding. Explore the weekly outdoor market or take in live traditional music in a cozy local pub. Kenmare is known for its good eats and great golf courses. Lined with colorful houses and charming shops, Kenmare is a true Irish village with all of the amenities one could need and easy access to the sea.

Reviews

Here's what our guests have to say

Anonymous (06/2019)

★★★★★

A beautiful house, great amenities. We took the back path into town and it was an easy walk. It would have been pleasant to have extra blankets.

Anonymous (05/2019)

★★★★★

The house itself is in an excellent location and great well suited for our group of four...(future visitors should be told about the shortcut to town, the Kerry Road path, that precludes walking on the busy road).
