Location description from owner

The Province of Munster region

The Irish name for Kenmare is Neidn, meaning the little nest cradled in the heart of Kenmare Bay. It is a heritage town and as such has retained its historic attractions and beauty which can be seen in the Kenmare Heritage Centre with the Lace and Design Centre just next door. The town is a flurry of brightly coloured shops and restaurants and each week hosts market day, with local crafts and produce.
Sitting on both The Ring of Kerry and The Ring of Beara, it is the perfect place from which to discover and explore South Kerry and West Cork.

Kenmare is known for it's award winning restaurants and is full to the brim with pubs showcasing our traditional music and songs.
Having won the "Tidiest Town" in Ireland more than once, you can see why we love our town so much and think you will feel the same.

Kenmare

Places to See In and Around the Town: The Heritage and Lace Centre is a must see for more information about this wonderful town as is the Heritage Park in Bonane, just a short drive away.
Rinn na gCros Park is a trail through a wooded area, beside the sea, with trees and plants from around the world within walking distance of the house. On the way back you can visit Kenmare Pier which looks out over the bay and sit and watch the boats go in and out.

Activities: With two golf course, horse riding, fishing, Eco Wildlife Cruises as well as Activity & Adventure Centres within easy reach of the town, you won't be bored. And if that weren't enough you can enjoy all the scenery with our many walking and cycling routes, don't worry if you haven't come prepared, bicycles are available for hire.

Trips: Sitting on the Ring of Kerry and the Ring of Beara, you will be in the perfect spot to enjoy the rugged scenery the area has to offer. The Healy Pass overlooking Glanmore Lake is a must see, we reccommend you go travel from Cork to Kerry for the best effect and take in Dereen Gardens on your way home! Also within reach are beautiful towns and villages such as Killarney and Glengarriff.

“The Best Host”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2013

I wrote to reserve the Old Dressmaker's Cottage but unfortuately it had just been booked so while I did not get to stay, Kathleen went out of her way, completely out of her way to help me find another cottage to stay in literally right across the street. The cottage was absolutely perfect in all ways - a fire ready in the fireplace, two cozy bedrooms, warm hosts, incredible location on market street ... my trip could not have been any better and so while I was not able to stay at the Old Dressmaker's Cottage I have so many thanks and appreciation for the host there.

“Just Perfect!”

Reviewed 9 Dec 2012

Everything about this house was just perfect: the location (in the middle of everything, but still quiet) and size (2 bedrooms, 2 baths) was just as advertised , and still very cozy. We didn't cook much, but the kitchen was nice-sized and fully equipped, and the living room was just large enough with very comfy furniture to relax in after a long day of touring. Both rooms also have great wood-burning stoves. We did not get to meet Kathleen, but Steve met us at the house (and he even saved a parking spot for us!) and gave us a great tour of he house as well as something good info on local pubs, etc. In summary, we can't recommend this property well enough!

“wonderful!”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2012

The old dressmakers cottage is a sheer delight. It is very pretty, spacious and comfortable. On arrival the owner met us at the door with a up of tea and she had lit a peat fire made us feel very welcome and at home.The cottage we found to be very well furnished and extremely well equiped. The position of the cottage is right in the heart of Kenmare easy walking for shops, pubs and restaurants quite important as we are both late 70's and yet it was lovely and quiet.

“Lovely home in quaint Kenmare with easy access to all of the sights!”

Reviewed 29 May 2012

First, the home is gorgeous and well-equipped. Nice bathrooms (great hot showers!), kitchen and laundry machine. Kathleen welcomed me with a fire burning in the living room - she is a wonderful and kind person. The home is within walking distance to the main two streets in Kenmare. From this location we drove to the Dingle Peninsula, Ring of Kerry and Beara Peninsula. It was a piece of cake! I highly suggest this property to anyone staying in Kenmare!!

“Helpful, friendly owners, quiet town centre location, comfortable and well equipped.”

Reviewed 7 Nov 2011

As a regular visitor to the Kenmare area for the past 20+ years I have to admit I hadn't come across The Old Dressmaker's Cottage before, but wish I had! Very comfortable, very reasonably priced and well equipped, the cottage was ideal for myself, my 11-year-old daughter and one of her schoolfriends, for a half term break. A two minute walk from the shops, pubs and restaurants yet located in a quiet residential street, everything we needed was on hand. The owners could not have been more welcoming and did not seem bothered by our weather-induced late arrival and then helped me out when my car broke down - so a very public thank-you is deserved! Highly recommended.
