A Diverse menu with a variety of exciting flavors to keep you guessing and wanting more. Worth the price. Reservations are a must. We stepped in around 7pm and they were booked until 9pm. After a peek at the menu, we stepped out for a few drinks and returned to take the late reservation.

My husband and I eat there on Thursday evening. We both had the crab cakes for starters which delicious then for the main course I had the scallops and my husband had the Kerry lamb all were truly amazing. To finish we shared the lemon roulade this was also superb. We had a fantastic meal. There are no negatives about our evening. Cant wait to return,

We loved our dinner at Packie's and are so glad we chose to eat here. The ambience is perfect- small restaurant, candles, yummy food, great service. Warning: be prepared to pay cash- credit card machine was down when we were there

Chef Martin Hallissey is a master of his art and capitalises on the fantastic local produce from County Kerry and West Cork, especially the very fresh fish and shellfish (but not to forget the succulent Kerry lamb). We have eaten here many times over the last 18 months and have never been disappointed. On our last visit this week, the Hake special with Crab claws and Langoustines was sublime and with a crab cocktail to start and a utterly gorgeous lemon meringue roulade to finish, this delicious meal was absolutely outstanding. Packie’s is very popular and with good reason, so a reservation is usually required. The service is attentive and thoughtful and there is a wonderful busy buzz to this charming restaurant. Highly recommended; indeed a visit to Kenmare would not be complete without tasting the culinary delights that Martin and his excellent team magic’s out of his kitchen.
