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.SSSSS

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.SSSSS

We stayed 2 nights at Birchwood B&B because it`s such a beautiful place and the quality is perfect. We have chosen this B&B because we stayed there just one year ago.
The service and Breakfast is delicious and Tom is always very helpful.

Tom provided us with a really warm welcome, and lots of useful advice about what to see and where to go.
The area has so much to offer that we regretted having booked only 2 nights, and would gladly have stayed more.
We left with good memories, some fruits and homemade cake to see us on our way !SSSSS
