Have stayed here on Easter and Summer cycling breaks for many years now. It’s not just in the Premier League of B&Bs, but right up there at the top. Outstanding welcome, nice rooms, and food that would not be out of place in a good restaurant (no kidding!)

This is the perfect base for cycling, or hillwalking in Kerry and Cork.

I stayed here with my friend when we were visiting Ireland in June 2012. We decided to drive the ring of kerry so wanted somewhere enroute.

When we arrived Tom couldn’t have been more welcoming, he showed us to the living room and advised us to make ourselves at home. He then showed us to our room which was so comfortable I could have taken my bed home with me.

On our first night we were welcomed home to a few drinks in the living room with the other guests we felt very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for Tom.

Tom advised us of the best areas to visit and recommended a drive along side some mountains which ended up being the highlight of our week in Ireland.

He keeps the house and ground perfectly clean and tidy, there is nothing more he could do to make you feel at home whilst staying here. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone visiting the local area.

We were so lucky to find Birchwood in the B&B directory and reserve 2 rooms for 2 nights (we added another night). We felt welcome in Tom’s beautiful farmhouse and lovely grounds. Our roomy, en suite bedrooms offered everything we needed, including a spectacular view of the hills. Tom prepared perfect breakfasts of our choice, and he recommended sightseeing destinations that we would have missed on our own. The nearby village of Kenmare has lots of interesting shops and restaurants, and a helpful tourist information center.

Toms selfmade teabread with a cup of tea we received at welcome was delicious. And that was only the beginning. The nice and comfortable bedroom, the beautiful breakfast, the quiet surrounding, Tom’s help and advices for trips in the region and Tom’s care about us made our stay at Birchwood a pleasure.
If we come back to Ireland, we come back to Birchwood B&B for sure.
