I was on a trip with a good friend who happens to be the head chef at Rick Steins. The four of us had a superb meal and on top of impressing the big man himself from Steins with the exceptional cooking, we loved the straight forwardness of the staff, their charm and pleasant approach. Be sure to book. It... More

Packie's is small, intimate, delicious, and not to be missed. If you can get in here to have dinner and some wine, you will not be disappointed. The menu is full of local staples such as Kerry Lamb and Kenmare fish and the wine menu is robust and complimentary to the food. We had to wait a few minutes for... More

We took a break from a stay in one of Kenmare's finer hostelries just after Christmas to stroll downtown in Kenmare and dine in Packies, and we were not disappointed. We were part of an early sitting, which isn't always great, but it really didn't matter. The food was really excellent, and the team were very hospitable. Adults and teenagers... More

This is a really lovely restaurant well worth a little visit when you are in Kenmare. Gorgeous food and the nicest staff I have ever encountered. A little more expensive than the other restaurants on the main street but very very much worth it. Lovely atmosphere and you will be treated so well. Enjoy

We thought this restaurant was fabulous. They have a very nice staff, who managed to squeeze us in without a reservation. Some wonderful dishes were scallops, artichoke soup, lamb stew, dover sole. My husband thought his creme brulee was the best he's ever had, we also tried a delicious coffee parfait. The wine list is also great. Beautiful atmosphere, great... More
