“Bundles of atmosphere and taste”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2010

Unrivalled food, atmosphere and value. A definite place to visit when you are in Kenmare. We have eaten here each time we have been in Kenmare. We have tried other places in the town and nothing beats here. The atmosphere is inviting, the staff are exceptional, the food is supreme - try it, you won't be dissappointed.

We read a lot of positive reviews on Packie's, so we went. The reviews are right . Romantic atmosphere, excellent food. Park in town and walk up the street.

“best food, service and atmosphere I have experienced in years!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2010

All I can say after having a meal in Packie's last Saturday night is..Do not leave Kenmare without eating here...this restaurant is out on its own and is a must if you visit Kenmare. Enjoy every minute of it!

“Over Rated”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2009

We ate there on our first night in Kenmare but were disappointed. The place was far too dark and we were stuck in a corner. The food was just OK, nothing to write home about. Expensive - five euros for each scallop, and they weren't that good.

“Excellent food and Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2009

Packies is a tradition in Kenmare and is extremely popular so booking is always essential.

The food is consistently good and the service excellent. Yes its expensive but worth it I think for an enjoyable evening.
