I stayed here as part of an organsied walking holiday. It is a lovely hotel, posh and laid back at the same time. Staff were very pleasant and helpful (my phone charger broke and immediately they lent me a replacement) the room I had was gorgeous, although I'm told we were in the particularly nice part of the hotel and...

Stayed for a wedding - Clean Room, Solid Breakfast. Nice Leisure Centre. Mid price hotel high end 3 star / low mid four star type of place. Good value and located perfectly in Kenmare - 5 minute stroll to the middle of town.

My Fiance and I stayed here in June as we were attending a wedding nearby. The hotel is clean and comfortable but quite basic. The bathroom in the room was nice but the room itself was very average. The location of the hotel is great and it was really easy for us to get around the town. We found the... More

I was looking for self-catering on the Ring of Kerry close to town with hotel amenities - pool, restaurant, bar. This accommodation fitted the bill perfectly and I was delighted to see they were doing a "third night free" offer. The hotel has several self-catering accommodation choices. I decided on the accommodation labelled 'holiday homes' because they are closest to... More

First the good....The hotel upgraded us to a suite without asking which was a lovely surprise. It meant that we had a decent amount of space for our whole family. I had chosen this hotel based solely on a review that I'd read which had described it as a great place to bring small children. The reviewer had mentioned that... More

We stayed here for 2 nights for a wedding. The staff was amazing so helpful. Food really good. The only down fall was the bar food service the next day was quite slow, however it was busy so this was more than likely the reason. Rooms were fab as was breakfast and leisure facilities. Will be returning.

We stayed for two nights. Our room was very comfortable and clean. Nice view out the window. Breakfast was very good. We had dinner in the bar one night and the vegetable soup was excellent! Staff was always very pleasant!!! Easy walking to town! We would stay again! Though we would like to see brighter lighting in the room.

We stayed in the Kenmare Bay on 14/07/15. Rooms were spotlessly clean and leisure centre was very family friendly and enjoyable. Breakfast was buffet style but good with plenty of freshly cooked options available. Overall a nice hotel and would book again.

We stayed here whilst on an HF photographic break, we were most impressed with the quality of the rooms, very comfortable with lovely views of the hills. It was just a short walk down to the centre of town with all its shops, pubs & restaurants but it was lovely & quiet where we were. It proved an excellent centre... More
