Lovely hotel, the lobby is particularly impressive and the staff are friendly. The ensuite bathrooms are beautiful. The food I had in the ball room was superb. Couldn't recommend the resort enough, quite close to the lovely Kenmare Village and nearby Ring of Kerry

Staff were brilliant and food for evening meal lovely. but room very basic and cold.we had to put an extra blanket on the bed. The curtains were sunbleached.bathroom tiny and shody. Breakfast awful and did not eat it so had to go into town to eat. Would not recommend for a couples stay.

The hotel and its restaurant are superbly decorated and airy. The menu is varied and really interesting. We found the wine list very good and well chosen. The service was very efficient. My Caesar Salad was fantastic, and the Lamb Shank and Monkfish Skewers were also deemed delicious. We had a bottle of Rabbit Island Sauvignon Blanc and Saint Marc...
