You know how sometimes you have a great meal in a restaurant and then come back a few weeks later and find that it is not as good as it was the first time? Well, this is never the case in Packie's. They have absolutely nailed every dish that they've put on their menu. Their sole Meunière is the... read more

We have visited Packies on a number of occasions since moving to Kenmare two years ago. The food is always delicious, and the service is second to none. Our foodie friends from the UK loved the food, service and ambiance.

Visited this lovely restaurant after reading on trip advisor. We didn't have a reservation but was quickly seated by the window - easily the best seats. The two ladies attending us were lovely and even divided our starter salad we were going to share. Now that is what I call great service. I was very impressed with Irish hospitality and... More

The food is always delicious in Packie's and the service is delightful. The staff always recognise us and give us a warm welcome, even after months of not being there. The menu is quite pricey but worth it. The quality of the food is amazing and all the ingredients are as fresh as they can be. I highly recommend their... More

You'll need to book to eat here but it's definitely worth the trouble and worth a visit. The food was delicious! The staff were professional but friendly and we received a warm welcome. An old pub interior with a buzzing but not too noisy atmosphere made for casual dining but it's not cheap. My friend and I both ordered fish... More

Packies was recommended to us by the Concierge at the Park Hotel and we thanked him afterwards! Warm welcome on a cold wet November night, the restaurant is small and quirky just the right side of poky. We were seated quickly and enjoyed a chat with the friendly waitress. Even though the restaurant was busy we were served promptly. The... More
