Delicious

Try the potato pancakes. Extremely light, cooked in garlic butter. Nothing like the potato pancakes we've had in the states.

Wonderful place to eat. The lamb was the best I've had and the desserts were even better. Nice ambiance and friendly staff.

Incredible food! This is a must if you are in Kenmare. Tends to fill up quickly so make a reservation. Every dish we ate was fantastic. Highly recommend Packie's!

I visited this restaurant recently and was bowled over by the food (especially the monkfish done in a lime and ginger crust) The restaurant was so full it was turning away casual callers. A very cosy spot with excellent food and wine on offer and friendly and knowledgeable staff. A definite revisit for me when in the area again. Well... More

The service was excellent, the food was excellent, the atmosphere was quaint and pleasant. Reservations are a must, on a Wednesday night in May we watched them turn away at least 8 walk-ins parties. Try the potato pancakes, they are amazingly fluffy and tasty. The sole and crab cakes we had were very fresh and tasty too.

Packie's is a bit pricier than most other restaurants in downtown Kenmare, but in this case you definitely get what you pay for! My wife and I both ordered the cod, which was tender and flavorful and was accompanied by colcannon, an Irish potato dish. The intimate atmosphere was an added bonus, and our server couldn't have been more charming.... More

Packie's was recommended by staff member and fellow foodie at Jameson's distillery in Midleton... what a recommendation. The food is amazing; the service is tops. Restaurant is cozy; a few tables are a tight squeeze depending on the crowd. Reservations are recommended. What I fondly refer to as the "Triple P" - Packie's potato pancake - is outta this world!
