we stayed an absolutely lovely 4 nights in kenmare ireland at this stunning b&b tucked away in the country-side. anne (the owner/host) was beyond fantastic to stay with and her home was so comfortable. my brother & i mentioned to each other that it reminded us a lot of our late grandmother’s old home; completely welcoming, warm, and homey. her sense of style/decor was this beautiful blend of rustic chic that enveloped you the minute you walked inside.
i happened to stumble across kenmare eco lodge b&b on airbnb and fell in love with the atmosphere that translated through the pictures. lando & i stayed in the sweet downstairs room the first night and moved up to a room with two beds the next three nights; both spaces were so comfortable and relaxing. anne had tea we could make throughout the day/night and served a filling healthy (yay!) breakfast – mmm homemade granola, yogurt, overnight oats, and a to-die-for cheese plate with some salmon in the morning and the most delicious bread and homemade jams. we would chat about what all there was to do within the area and where to go that wouldn’t be full of tourists; anne had the best advice for how to fill our days well.
we were able to get to know some great people who were coming and going during our 4 nights there. two german gentlemen, a couple from the washington d.c. area, a young lady traveling by herself and another couple from upstate sc. all great conversations, lots of interesting stories, and suggestions of where to visit while we were there.
