This restaurant was incredible! I saw the lobster on a review, and even though it wasn't on the menu that night, Chef Martin made me the most delicious lobster I have ever had! We sat fireside, and it was so romantic. The waitstaff were super friendly, and even let me take a dessert to go that was on real dishes... More

We were in Kenmare for a week and went to Packies and liked it so much that before we left we booked to go back on our last night. Food, service and atmosphere were all excellent. As others have said it is very popular always seems to be busy. Not cheap, but good value.

Stopped by when we arrived in Kenmare and tried to get reservations for 8pm. they didn't have any so we decided to just show up around 8 and glad we did. They took us right in as well as another couple who did not have reservations. The food... More

Located on Henry Street in Kenmare, you will be struck by the ambience as you enter in to the restaurant. It was a Thursday night in October and the restaurant was virtually fully occupied. Friendly efficient staff, good lighting, multilingual conversations, a short but mainly European Wine list, exciting Menu (mainly fish) and "free covers" to get you started. I... More

This meal out was a treat for my parents and as it was the first time of dining at Packie's, I wanted it to be a success. I needn't have worried - from the time we stepped over the threshold to the time we left the experience was wonderful; delightful hosts, inviting atmosphere, scrumptious food and all washed down with...

Good food served well in comfortable surroundings. To merit excellent you must hit all of them. Packie's did tonight. From the homemade breads brought to start our meal through the perfectly cooked entrees accompanied by vegetables, salad and colcannon to our ice cream desserts with coffee, our experience was first rate. The portions were generous and timely served. Our table... More
