Packie's would put top class London restaurants to shame. Amazing food, great atmosphere and great staff. We are here last year and went back this weekend and it was just as good as last year if not better. Couldn't fault it. A big group of us of all ages and everyone was delighted with their meal. Look forward to next year already.

We had a wonderful dinner at Packie's on our first night in Kenmare. Everything was as you would want it to be----lovely and comfortable room, excellent waitstaff and most important, fabulous food. We would definitely return and recommend highly.

We ate twice at this wonderful restaurant during our 7 night stay in Kenmare, and that is simply unheard of for us.
There are a great number of worthy eating spots in and around Kenmare, but Packies is quite simply the best.
Fresh, wonderful food...and the friendliest wait staff we have ever had the pleasure to meet.
The Owner and Chef, Martin absolutely knows what he's doing...we'd travel back from Australia simply to eat here.
Thank you for the experience...it was a privilege!

..................and I'm still thinking about it.

Great Food.
Great Waitstaff.
Great Atmosphere.
Great Company.

This is a jewel in the town of Kenmare which came highly recommended from a local who loves the quality and simplicity Packie's has to offer. Very informal. Crispy goat cheese salad and the Kerry lamb are enough proof that these folks know what they're doing. My only regret? We didn't try any of the seafood items for which they are known.....good excuse to return. For a lazy Tuesday evening in October, the place was full. Our next trip to Ireland will include another visit to Packie's.....
