4km from Kenmare


Meet your host…

Lovett Family

The Lovett Family have been farming the land for generations and welcoming guests for over 40 years. The old stone farm cottage still exists. Cattle mainly Hereford @ Charolais and sheep namely Suffolk @ Scotch are reared on the farm. There is always lots of work to be done on the farm with the vegetables being sown in spring and silage cutting during the summer months. Many of our guests take a stroll before or after breakfast to the farm, enjoying the panoramic views on the way.

The Lovett family have been welcoming guests for more than 30 years, treating them to orthopaedic beds, indulgent breakfasts and great local knowledge. Ideal for tours of the Ring of Kerry, Beara Peninsula and Bonane Heritage Park, the picturesque town of Kenmare is also 4km away. Guests can enjoy gourmet restaurants, vibrant pubs and a wealth of outdoor activities.

My mom and I stayed here June 8 and June 9. The place is on the main road so is easy to find. Also, Kenmare is just a few minutes drive away. We enjoyed the quite of this place and liked our room with the two beds, and which was a good size. Sheila is very welcoming, talkative and cooks an excellent breakfast. We also appreciated husband Pat's friendliness. Kenmare is a great little town and quite busy. We enjoyed the two places where we had supper: Landsdowne Arms Hotel and Foley's Bar. For some shopping, we checked out Quill's Woollen Market. I went hiking in one very very cool place one day but I'm guarding that one....! Thank you again, Sheila and Pat for happy memory.

Average accommodations. Part of a working farm, so a little different from the standard B&B. Somewhat out of town, across the river.

Beautiful location and wonderful folks. Our 2 nights here was great and even got to see a newborn lamb, only hours old. Our room was very nice and clean. The home is conveniently located just south of Kenmare so it was close to everything. Thank you, Sheila
