I received a gift of a 2 night stay in the hotel so we booked a Friday and Saturday night. Very well kept hotel, couldn't fault the cleanliness and presentation. The room was nice and bathroom especially was lovely. We were staying in room 215 and it had a view of the roof of the lower level of the hotel.... More

Good breakfast, good swimming pool, nice small bar and easy way to access town by foot. We spent very nice weekend there. The only, small, downsides were that the double bed was a little bit small and TV reception was bad quality, but apart from that everything was perfect.

We had a recent weekend stay in the Kenmare Bay Hotel. It would easy be negative about 3 attempts to get our room sorted and the wash hand basin tap that threatened to come off every time it was used. Our room and bathroom was well appointed, spacious and not too far from reception yet far enough away that we... More

Attended a wedding at the Kenmare Bay recently. Everything was perfect with regards the reception and food, one member of staff however, I believe her name was Kelly (no name badge to be seen- was a local wedding so it wasn't too hard to find out her name!) was completely rude to guests! During the afters of the wedding she... More
