We came to Kenmare Bay Hotel because we are into walking which the hotel promote along with other activities. We walked a section of the Kerry Way from Kenmare to Sneem which had coastal views which we enjoyed very much. They also had a number of looped walks setting out from the hotel. The maps for these were displayed in...

I just stayed at the Kenmare Bay with my husband & 2 kids (5 & 3yrs) for a short weekend getaway and have nothing but great things to say about it. The hotel itself is lovely - bright, modern & clean. I found it to be at least on a par with many 4 star hotels that I have stayed...

We made an appointment to speak to a staff member with regards to our wedding. However when we travelled all the way from Dublin the staff member we arranged to meet didnt turn up for work due to illness and nobody from the hotel bothered to phone us to tell us this. We were met by a manager who showed...

Excellent value. We stayed here for two nights. The room was perfect, the location really convenient as it's so close to town. One particular highlight for us was the breakfast, the selection was great and fresh, and we quite enjoyed the interaction with the breakfast chef Carlo who went above and beyond to cater for our needs.

Back again for another visit to this hotel with family. Our party of four, one couple and a mummy and daughter, all adults, had a lovely two night/three day stay at the Kenmare Bay hotel. We were given large adjoining rooms which were particularly useful, with lovely views of the mountains. The weather wasn't great but did not detract from...

A great two night stay. From the time of our arrival until our departure we received most courteous treatment. We had intended to try several of the many restaurants in the town, but instead found ourselves in the lovely atmosphere of the Courtyard bar, where even the kids' menu was more than sufficient and where we were splendidly looked after...
