We stayed elsewhere, but we really enjoyed our dinner here very much. We started with fish chowder, shrimp, and duck pate. All were very good. Our entrees included lamb shank, baked salmon, and pork ribs. The lamb shank was incredible, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. My wife is on a mission to copy this preparation! The...

They promptly moved us to another room, which was nicer, however it was very dated and the water in the bathtub was tinged greenish. The breakfast was more... More

The bar food here is good, never disappoints. Good location at top of town and ideal to have drink and food any time of day. Staff are very friendly and know menu so can recommend dishes to suit your needs.

We arrived on Sunday afternoon May 3rd to a warm welcoming comfortable lobby. Large chairs and earthy décor made the place feel homely once we stepped... More

This is an old fashioned hotel with big rooms, deep bathtubs and lots of corridors, staircases and sitting areas. Its small staff is friendly but don't expect bell-hops and valet parking. The Bold Thaddy Quinn bar is popular with older locals. It also has a good bar food and daily specials dinner menus. There are other good restaurants in Kenmare,... More

Stayed here recently on a hen and I cannot compliment if enough. The girls on the desk were so friendly. We had an amazing meal in the restaurant that night and breakfast the next morning was great. Rooms were perfect, clean and comfortable. Great location. I will definitely return!!!
