Brilliant apartment - unfortunately terrible sleep:
This is a beautiful place to stay in a beautiful setting. It has all the amenities you require and it is brand new with both bedrooms enjoying an ensuite. However as a travelling party of five (4 adults and a baby) we didn't get a wink of sleep. The apartment is on the Main Street above many restaurants/pubs and whilst this is not normally an issue for us the apartment wasn't set up for this. The windows weren't sound proof and the curtains weren't blackout so the street lights from outside lit up our rooms like daylight. We were also woken up several times by patrons of the pubs and also the delivery of kegs at 6am and garbage trucks emptying the bins.
We would definitely return if the host was able to fix the noise and light issue.
This apartment is lovely and the location is unbeatable! It's above some shops on the main street of Kenmare with close access to everything the wonderful town has to offer. That said, it was difficult to arrive at the apartment because there was no mention in the notes that we had to visit a pub across the street (O'Donabhains) to pick up the keys and get shown where exactly the apartment is. Once we were pointed in the right direction though the rest of the experience was great! The only last bit was that the apartment has a washer but NOT a working a dryer as advertised. Luckily the apartment is warm so the clothing dried quickly when hung up to dry. And the host, Jer, was so kind when I left a dress at the apartment and he took the time to ship to me. Overall a nice experience!
