******** (unless there is a farmer travelling the laneway in a JCB!...and....I cannot fix the rain no more than I can take all the credit for the perfect weather of 2014. Those who came in April know it was magic. June was perfect but few of you were around! July & August were also sunny and dry. So many wanted to book that I had to decline. Plan it better for 2015...ensure your place in the bed is reserved @ Kenmare/Kerry/Hemp House Eco Lodge

Eco friendly. dog friendly. smoking outside.
There is a guest sitting room - the red library room of the photos with plush red velvet sofa and plush red Persian rug.

I run this ecological B&B made out of hemp* Sleeps x 6. Rooms from E70 per night.. I have travelled a good deal myself and understand the value of meeting locals who can give detailed, personal advice. I think if you like the images of my house and the offering of natural/organic etc. you will love Kenmare and environs anyway and I try to provide information to give a personalized portal into the best of its many hidden offerings.
I am a regular hiker, explorer of the area close to hand and the two peninsulas and can give you daily guidance at breakfast time on what most suited to your desires and depending on the day's weather. I have produced a book on the urban heritage of the town and appreciate Kenmare's special character as a fine example of a 17th planned estate town. I can advise on best authentic food, music, eating and shopping experiences of which Kenmare is well supplied.
If you like nature and natural surroundings, outstandingly stunning landscape, great hill trails, eco-living, conversation, sitting in the library room, exploring mountain paths and ancient monuments then going into town for fine dining experiences and live music you will find plenty to do here for several days on end.
I have travelled around most parts of Ireland so I can offer advice on your onward journey from here.
