Excellent Food - Lovely atmosphere - incredibly friendly staff and Martin Hennessey is an incredible cook - he did a barbeque for us at the Villas at Sheen Falls and it was completely insane. Highly recommend!

We just finished a wonderful meal here! After driving from Waterville to Kenmare via the Ring of Kerry, this was the perfect dinner stop. I would highly recommend any of the seafood dishes. We ordered four different dishes and they were all delicious. The service was killer also. Enjoy!

This was my favourite restaurant of the four we visited in the Kenmare area. The food here was of a very high standard with extremely generous portions, the service friendly and efficient and the atmosphere very pleasing. Would definitely recommend!

This was one of the best meals that we (family) have had in a long time. The service was exceptional and the staff are all very friendly. Make sure that you book well in advance. A must do when in Kenmare, not to be missed.

Packie's was recommended and we were able to get in for dinner. The food and service were wonderful. We shared a meal which was plenty for two.

Good food, friendly service but it was very expensive. The dining room was also very cramped and very busy, service was great and friendly. Food and wine of a very high quality.

Returned for a 2nd visit to Kenmare and went to my favorite place from last trip- Packie's. Took my family and we just loved it! In fact, went back the next night again! Great ambience, food, and the people are wonderful! Try the crab cake...best ever!!!
