“Stayed at Betty's Place with My dad.. Perfect!”

The Dressmakers cottage was booked, but Kathleen had Betty's place available., I was a little skeptical at first but was thrilled to find out that Betty's was completely remodeled and extremely comfortable. Perfect for 4 people, stones throw from town. My 73 year old Dad had no problem with the stairs or walking to town. Flor was on hand next door if we needed anything. Secure parking off the street. I would highly recommend either The Dressmakers cottage or Betty's place. Great people to work with. Thank you for arranging our stay and helping to make 5 days in Kenmare a completely worry free trip!

“The perfectly homely little house - we did not want to leave!”

This little townhouse is the most homely and charming holiday rental I have ever experienced. Kathleen, the owner, could not be more obliging but easy going at the same time. She was very generous with her time and had a lovely open fire going on our arrival. The kitchen is this cottage is the best feature, it is decorated in a charming, cottage style manner but with all modern conveniences. The location is perfect, on a quiet little street but just around the corner from everything you could possibly need. Kathleen was very generous in supplying ample toilet tissue, paper napkins, hand soap, washing machine detergent etc. We will definitely be back for a longer stay next year.

“Great place to stay and good central spot.”

Stayed a week and was the most homely rental I've stayed in. Clean with two showers and two bedrooms plus spacious kitchen. There was always a parking spot outside when we returned in the evening. Plenty of places to eat just around the corner. Kathleen the owner was very friendly and keen to make sure the house was tidy for us. Very central to Ring of Kerry and Beara Peninsula. Dont hesitate to book if you need a good base to travel out from. Small windows so will be dark if you want a place to stay indoors and chill out. Would be warm in Winter due to open fire and oil central heating.

Kathleen was great and arranged accommodation for us with Betty. Betty is an extremely lovely person. The accommodation could not be more quaint but at the same time so clean, newly renovated, has everything you need and so close to town. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to come back some day.
