We booked to eat here with my Aunt and Uncle who were also visiting. The restaurant had a lovely atmosphere and the food and wine were delicious.

The food was great, the ambiance was pleasant and the service was very efficient. I would recommend this restaurant and would advise potential diners to book in advance as it fills up very quickly.

The atmosphere in Packie's is friendly and welcoming. I was here on a Friday evening. Needless to say, it was full. Built into a cottage towards the top of Henry Street, Kenmare, it provides a friendly haven of foodie heaven.

This was the best restaurant we ate at while visiting in Kenmare. Great selection of menu items, fine wine, and fantastic deserts.
