With 5 large comfortable and attractively decorated bedrooms including double, twin and family rooms it caters for a wide range of guests. Both the dining room and lounge face onto the gardens for your added enjoyment. Birchwood's many return guests can vouch for the most wonderful breakfast menu which caters for the most discerning palate and is served with fruits and juices of all kinds together with home made breads and preserves.
Birchwood was a great location--very close to Kenmare, beautiful home and wonderful breakfast. Rooms are upstairs Although we didn't have any issue with water pressure we were told to stagger showers since the water system was connected with other rooms.
A very helpful host and comfortable B and B. I would recommend it to anyone who wanted to explore that area. Tom is happy to lend maps and tell you the best places to go, and he cooks a good breakfast too.
My son and I had a wonderful 5 day stay a Birchwood. It is clean, the food is excellent and Tom MacDonnell is professional and helpful in all ways. Use the money you save on lodging at Birchwood to have a good time in Kenmare about 10 minutes away.
From Kenmare: Take R569. Birchwood is 500m past Kilgarvan Village on your left.
Birchwood is your ideal base for visiting Ring of Kerry, Beara Peninsula, Gougane National Park as well as further afield and offers guests excellent selection of maps, guides and books as well as local knowledge to help you enjoy your stay. Being just 11 km from Kenmare and 32 km from both Killarney and Bantry you can enjoy a busy day out yet easily return to the peace and quiet that Birchwood offers.
