This Was the finest restaurant in Kenmare. We've loved every visit, but we tried to book during the week and it's closed, and apparently for good. Such a pity.

Best of food and our table was hosted by the Butchers Daughter! Ó trusted her to choose for me and she choose beautiful dishes for starter and main with crumble for desert. A great night with plenty of wine and G and Ts.

Had the pleasure of a return visit here. The food was fabulous again. We both had the Kerry Lamb , it was so succulent and tasty. There was a great buzz in the place and the staff are excellent.

The four-star rating is for the crowded and uncomfortable seating. Our table for four was smashed between a wall, a window and two other tables. The noise level was high and one of the music speakers was right over our table. It's a small and...More

Tiny doesn’t even start to describe this gem in Kenmare. Making a reservation is a must and I would not recommend it for a party over 6 unless you get 2 tables. You will hear what everyone is talking about. The food was so good...More

It’s difficult to understand the few negative reviews here. Is it white tablecloths and pomp? No - rather Packie’s delivers excellent food inside a happy, friendly atmosphere. The two of us shared a duck leg confit as a starter; presentation was pretty and we agreed...More
