stayed here with my husband for a night. our room was very spacious and very dated and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I was disappointed that there were no tea and coffee making facilities in the room and the shower was not electric, so if i turned on the bath I scalded my husband in the shower, nor could we find an iron. Breakfast in the moring was lovely but they are good on their portion control!! overall, nice hotel but not worth the money.

Just spent 3 nights in the lap of luxury! The staff are so friendly & always willing to assist. ...All men are called 'John'..almost? Went on the Wilderness Hike with John ( driver John also) a fountain of knowledge,made the hike really interesting. The spa is well worth a visit & pool excellent for the swimmers.Our room, superior, had everything,with views to die for. Evening meal is an experiencef food delicious. And we had the pleasure of meeting John, Francis away!!

Room Tip: Ask for mountain & river view

The hotel is home away from home, felt very comfortable there. Not one piece of dust anywhere. Pure luxury. Staff extremely friendly (but not over the top) and helpful. Decour is old-fashioned but beautiful. Huge comfortable bed (superior room) and large sitting area with beautiful views. Did not have evening meal but was not too expensive (menu was a bit fancy for me - plain food eater). Breakfast was very nice, especially the black pudding from Sneem. Night time bar had staff member playing the piano, beautiful music in background giving a chance for chat. Did not use the spa area but large variety of services offered. Gardens also beautiful. Did not get to meet Francis Brennan (unfortunately), but will def return, well worth the amount paid (as a special treat)

Room Tip: Room 310 - great view

We spent two nights in this gorgeous town. The hotel is top tier. The rooms are spacious and luxurious. The entire place is spotless. The staff is friendly and efficient. One of our friends enjoyed the golf course. The head bartender has been there for 34 years-if you want to learn about whiskey be prepared to spend some quality time listening to him talk! The restaurant is fabulous as well, both for breakfast and dinner. You are across the street from the Main Street in Kensington and shopping is but a short walk.

We stayed here at the end of August during a swing of Western Ireland doing a drive of Dingle and Ring of Kerry. Both were stunning drives. Make sure you get off the beaten path and cut across the mountains... On to the hotel...
Room: Awesome. We had what I guess you can call a mini suite. Our sitting area looked right out over the garden.
Grounds and walking: Nice little park behind with some good, easy trails. The day we left they were having a hike from up the Kerry Way back down to the hotel. We would have loved it but we didn't have time nor boots. (If you plan to do much real walking or hiking you need proper boots).
Breakfast was average for Ireland - not bad, not great.
Staff: Very nice and helpful. They even washed our car's windshield the morning we left - a nice touch (but you should expect that for $500+ USD / night.
Pool: We took a swim in their awesome lap pool. You really have to check this out - a 25M long stainless steel pool.

Room Tip: Ask for one overlooking the garden.

This was our third visit to the Park Hotel , Kenmare and once again we were not at all dissappointed.
The staff at this hotel should be given a five star award, everyone we came in contact with was a delight, happy in their place of work and it shows.
Its hard for hotels to get the measure just right but from the warm welcome on check in to the beautiful well appointed room overlooking the bay, to the friendly bar service to the simply FANTASTIC dining expierence........we were in heaven.
Afternoon tea was a delight and set us up for a long walk around the grounds of this wonderful gem of a hotel.
The parks has old fashioned values long lost in other hotels, may it long continue and I for one will be back and will keep spreading the good word on this hotel
Thanks to all at The Parks and see you next year for sure .........

Room Tip: Ask for a room over looking the bay, they are to die for..........

I stayed at the Kenmare Park Hotel at the end of June. Kenmare is a delightful, busy and prosperous town in south west Ireland, and the Kenmare Park Hotel sits at the top of the hill, above it. There is a nice driveway and approach from the town, and the situation and building itself is impressive. The welcome from the staff seems very genuine and they are both efficient and charming. However, I was astonished by the dated decor, especially given that the hotel has won some sort of award from Conde Nast, the general palate of colours in many of the rooms seems to be sludge green, combined with swirly carpets and very rickety reproduction antique furniture. The bathroom in my suite was spotlessly clean, with lashings of hot water, but really very worn, for a hotel boasting such high calibre. The food was good, in terms of flavour, but the choice limited, the serving sizes minute, it was unimaginative and very expensive. Given the availability of wonderful local produce, particularly seafood, it seemed to be a missed opportunity. The kitchen appears to close at 9pm, the poor girl serving our dinner had to source and serve our desert course from the kitchen herself, as the others had gone home, at about 9.20. The hotel has wonderful staff, and they really deserve better. I understand there has been a change of chef since June, I hope this has improved matters. By the way I have never slept on such revoltingly sweaty mattresses in my life, hardly best quality pocket sprung comfort....
