We spent the few days between Christmas and New year in the Park. The welcome was very personal and the rooms were nice. It rained heavily every day while we were there - and I really couldn't think of a nicer, cosier place to be in such weather! The food was excellent at every meal - it's especially worth saving...

We visited in late December. Unfortunately I was feeling sick while travelling to Kenmare and a few hours after check in had to go see a Doctor. We didn't get to experience the Park as we would have liked however from what we did experience we really enjoyed. The hotel and grounds are fabulous, there's a great old world charm.... More

Having stayed in many of the big hotel chains around the world on business gives me no appetite to stay in a hotel when on holiday. The park dose not operate the ' have a nice day' culture which i have become accustomed too. At the Park you will receive a genuine welcome and a chat as you move around... More

As a travel agent I loved experiencing the quality of this amenity. I'll look forward to returning again soon. The town is very charming as well. A quick ride or walk puts one in touch with every kind of experience in nature, shop, pub or restaurant one could want to experience. The concierge service is excellent in this charming hotel!

From the warm Kerry welcome on a cold November days to the infinity pool in the Spa the attention to detail made this Hotel a wonderful place to stay.

We booked the Park Hotel Kenmare based on TripAdvsior reviews and the fact that it is a Relais & Chateaux property. Andrew Harper has also written favorably about this hotel. (I don't know how it could possibly be rated as only the 4th best property in Kenmare.) The location is great and right on the Ring of Kerry. While it... More

We four friends stayed for one night in November. We had a wonderful time. The staff are exemplary. The hotel is old world charm and this is such a pleasant change from the modern minimalist hotels that we are all so used to today. We had breakfast, evening meal & both were just excellent.
