The Park Hotel Kenmare is a stunning traditonal hotel. I travel a lot for business as well as personally and visited last month on a personal trip with four friends from New York. One of the couples had stayed there before and raved about it. Their comments were absolutely correct. This hotel would top any list of hotel categories. It feels as though you are staying in someone's very grand country house. No reception desk as in a typical hotel. You are greeted as you walk in the door into a very luxurious yet small reception area with a glowing fire and the process of "checking in" just seemed to happen.
My room was lovely - very well-appointed separate seating area, very comfortable bed, great linens and, unusual for Ireland and England (at least in my experience), very good lighting. The desk was roomy and the internet connection great.
The bar and adjoining seating area are beautiful, overlooking gardens and water. We were there in cooler weather and there was always a fire on.
The dining room, with very large windows, also overlooking the gardens and water, is beautiful, day and evening. Breakfast was out of this world as was dinner - great menu and wine list. The service in the dining room is impeccable.
Aside from all of the above that was perfect think I must comment that this hotel has the finest staff I have experienced. Everyone from reception through bar and waitstaff were all the best I have seen. On our second evening the bartender approached us, mentioned what we had ordered the night before and asked if we would like the same again.
As mentioned, I was there with friends but think it would be a wonderful place for a romantic get-away.
I can't say enough good things about the Park Hotel Kenmare that could do justice to the experience.... just go and see for yourself.
