We loved our two visits to Packies in August, the service was excellent, the girls here cannot do enough to make you welcome . The food was brilliant, I recommend the seafood sausage and make sure yo make a reservation this small restaurant fills up pretty quickly..

Went here as a family of 6 and really enjoyed the food. It is different from the surrounding restaurants which tend to do pub grub. It is more of a formal dining experience but not too posh which makes it comfortable. Our waitress was very nice and the food was full of flavour.

If you are going to be in Kenmare, be sure to plan ahead and get a reservation at Packie's. One of the best meals anywhere. Excellent preparation of all dishes, friendly service and a homey atmosphere. Seating is limited and Packie's is very popular so reservations are a must. Enjoy!

I took friends out to this restaurant just over a week ago, and it was superb! Everyone enjoyed the wonderful food, made of the best locally sourced and freshest ingredients, and served in a comfortable slightly rustic setting in the midst of Kenmare, Co. Kerry. I had the Dover Sole, and it was one of the best I've ever eaten.... More

We booked Packies well in advance of arriving in Kenmare and were we glad! The place was packed and buzzing with atmosphere; the staff friendly and attentive. The meal was beautiful - my wife and I had the prawns baked in goats cheese and filo pastry with a mouseline sauce - absolutely brilliant - my wife then had lemon sole... More
