    Greenwood is a wonderful option for those travelling to west Cork and Kerry. The location is peaceful and remote - it's a lovely 10min drive (or 20min cycle) from Kenmare. The host is very attentive and helpful. The facilities and rooms are very clean and have everything you need. Kitchen has all the equipment you'll need to cook. I can't imagine there's better value for money anywhere else in the region. Highly recommended!

    Quiet and private location. I had the whole house to myself and Thorston, the owner was great about sharing information about the area. He kept a fire going in the wood stove where I spent a rainy day just catching up and enjoying. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to travelers in the area.

    Very Good

    Having read previous reviews I was looking forward to a peaceful nights stay but unfortunately that was not what I got. The house is nice, the communal spaces are lovely. clean although surprised to not see any sanitiser anywhere. Room a good size, bed was maybe a little too hard for my taste. But the family staying in the room next door had very little respect for others staying. Noisy, no concept of personal space. Felt they should be told of general rules of sharing spaces with others
