“A fabulous experience every time.”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Martin and his team deliver a first class experience. Their welcome is warm and genuine and the atmosphere is cosy and relaxed. The food is consistently mouthwatering and beautifully presented. Packie's is an absolute "must" when visiting Kenmare.

“Excellent service, great food!”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

A group of seven of us had dinner at Packie's and both food and service stand out. One of the group is vegetarian with an allergy to onions and garlic, they took this in their stride and the chef prepared something special and took care over all the side dishes, a sign of a good attitude and very fresh food! The food was great - sea food being their strong point - but other dishes, including desserts, were also excellent. The service stood out as particularly good, our server was a mix of friendly, warm and attentive. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble and she was very well informed about all the dishes and happy to make recommendations. Really worth visiting.

“delightful dining”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Packie's is dining experience of good food, excellent service, and hospitality that is continued from the Shelburne Lodge as they owner's for both are one and the same. The atmosphere is warm, and comfortable. The eatery is nestled in historic downtown Kenmare which is worth the trip downtown just to stroll the streets nestled I the beautiful mountains in this jewel of the ring of Kerry.

“Ahead of the pack”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

In any city, Packie's would be a great choice. And in Kenmare, a town with many food choices, this was likly the best.
We enjoyed an excellent dinner--my fish was prepared perfectly, the sides were excellent, the service and staff flawless.And the price reasonable.
A couple of tips because they are small and fill up quickly: get a reservation, or knock on the kitchen door after 3:30 and make a reservation before they open at 6 pm.
