Great place for a wedding. The meal venue and facilities were great. Staff were lovely too.
We did not stay here but in the nearby Abbey Court B&B and that was just fantastic. The guests who stayed in the newer rooms were much happier than those in the older rooms.

This hotel is very comfortable and welcoming. Food superb and staff excellent. This hotel is well worth a visit and gives great value for money. bedrooms bright and cosy. Bar lovely, cosy, warm and bright. Close proximity to town and many facilities. During my stay the weather was pretty wet but it didn't spoil our trip. Plenty to do in Kenmare and surrounding places. Absolutely magnificent views. Would like to go back there again.

Nice hotel , nice room , breakfast ok . Size of bar really strange as only about 20 people can be seated there .People from a wedding upstairs were also trying to buy drink in this small bar .Surely a hotel of this standard should have a bar to accomadate its guests?

We have stayed at the Kenmare Bay hotel before and recently availed of their remarkable value breaks, staying for 3 nights with one inclusive dinner.
The hotel may not be 5 star but the service certaintly is. If Carlsberg did friendly helpful staff, then it would be at the KB Hotel....Probably.
The rooms are comfortable and spotless and the pool and spa facilites are the perfect wake up call for these travellers. Nothing like an early morning swim to refresh the soul and whet the appetite.
We had a fab meal in the Restaurant on Monday night - definitely worth including as this is a step above what one sometimes expects from Hotel food. The Cheesboard with a shot of port should not be missed. Too much we say !!! we think you are spoiling us !! and that's what the do best here. Spoil their guests with great food; remarkable staff; and a most comfortable lodging. we'll be back and have recruited all and sundry in need of a break to try it. I think they might just like it.

We had a very enjoyable 2 night stay at the Kenmare Bay Hotel. We took a family room for 2 Adults and 2 toddlers. The room was modern, spacious and very clean. The hotel is well located and has great facilities including full leisure centre with baby pool, restaurant with kids play corner and cosy bar. It was quiet as off season is approaching but it was perfect for a relaxing break. The staff were very professional and friendly. The food was very nice also. I enjoyed my stay there immensely.

Room Tip: We have stayed in room on the ground floor. I am not sure if all rooms have been renovated to this s...

Having spent the last four days in the Kenmare Bay Hotel Lodges I feel it would be remiss of me not to write a review on this fantastic location. We were a party of around 27 including adults and children, and we booked five lodges to accomodate us all.
The Lodges themselves are very well designed and provided an excellent base from which to explore the area. They are beautifully presented and provide for every need, especially well equipped for families, I would however love to return for a break without the kids in the near future.
Kenmare itself is a great town with plenty of restaurants and bars. I particularly would encourage any visitor to drive towards Glengariff via Caha pass as this is one of the most stunning drives I have ever taken in Ireland (and I am Irish) especially when the weather is clear.
I would love to return to this location in the near future and will definately return to the Lodges as the experience has been nothing short of perfect!

Room Tip: Lodge Number 21 seems to have more daylight through it for some reason
