I can't say enough positive things about my stay at Birchwood! Tom welcomed me as soon as I pulled in, he gave a great recommendation for the evening out in Kenmare that I was hoping for and the breakfast - talk about a feast! My accommodations were perfect - comfortable, clean, nice and toasty - and the living room, dining room and sitting room areas made you feel like you were home. I highly recommend Birchwood for anyone skipping through town or looking for a place to stay for a few nights!
As always, the stay in BIRCHWOOD was fantastic. Tom is a great host. We enjoyed his hospitality for a week.
We sent 2 nights at Tom's house. Breakfast is great Maureen is very nice, Tom's advices pubs, visits, ... are great, rooms are spacefull ... Everything is ok even it's a little bit away from Kenmare 10 kms.
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.
