Finding myself in Kenmare on business, I needed a hotel and so I booked into the Kenmare Bay Hotel. Check in was easy with a helpful, friendly young lady helping me on my way.

Nice hotel..... but I'm lying here wide awake at 2.45 am with the music pumping out of the hotel and I'm on the second floor and no sign of it abating.... Breakfast is very good bar scene at night is poor.

Really nice holiday houses, with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. You can easily park your car in fron of the house. Keys from the houses are at the hotel reception. There is also small garden, ideal for breakfast at the morning.

Had a blast in the Kenmare Bay Hotel and cottages this week with the family. The cottages are spacious and very modern with great facilities and most important - great wifi! The swimming pool is large and very family friendly. We had a great time as a family and look forward to a return visit! KB

Stayed here last friday. Room was very dated. Fire alarm went off a few times.. Tried ringing reception... waste of time. As for the receptionist who checked me in on friday night,a very unpleasant person. I found her to have a real attitude. I hope the other resident i spoke to got sorted as he was going checking out .
