Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Just had a beautiful lunch at the newly refurbished restaurant. We were a large group of 9 adults and 4 kids, we were given a corner with lots of space for the kids away from other diners, the staff provided toys, as well as colouring stuff to occupy the kids. The kids and adults menus were both excellent and the food was delicious! Joselyn couldn’t have done more for us and all with the smile! Highly recommend.

Stayed 2 nights in the lodges for a hen party. The lodges were fabulous super clean great size and had everything and more. Staff were just amazing everyone we met over our stay couldn't not be nicer. We had breakfast and dinner and food was so good. They went above and beyond for 1 of our party that had a food allergy. We also booked the cocktail class with Alan. Was so much fun and delicious cocktails. Honestly our whole experience from start to finish was perfect

Excellent!! The room was great, a nice size, and the food was even better!! Definitely some of the best hotel food in the country. As for the staff, they couldn't have been more helpful. The leisure centre had everything you'd need. Overall, a lovely experience in a great area. Would highly recommend...

We stayed at the Kenmare Bay Hotel for my sister’s hen party. We started with afternoon tea which was superb. There was plenty of food and a wide selection to cater for everybody. We then did a cocktail making class with Alan. This activity was great fun and very interactive. Alan was mighty craic and we never stopped laughing from the moment we got there!! I would 100% recommend this class and the hotel for anyone organising a hen party. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

It was a last minute decision to visit some friends in Kerry that weekend but I found an extremely clean and comfortable room, top class dining, most friendly and helpful staff. Excellent value for money. The swimming facilities were very well run. It was a delight to stay there.

From start to finish kenmare bay exceeded expectations. 23 of our family wanted to go away to celebrate our parents. From the initial booking the staff couldn’t have been any more helpful. On arrival each family had their own lodge / hotel room. With two babies we opted for a lodge. The lodge was so clean, travel cot available and kitchen well equipped. The lodges were far bigger than expected. On the both nights we ate in the hotel restaurant where there was toys placed near our tables to occupy the children, a great touch that I personally appreciated. Both night we were served lovely meals. Valetta served us on Saturday evening and went above and beyond to help us . On both mornings I went swimming with my daughter and couldn’t find fault here either. Even though we were self catering we ate in the hotel for breakfast both mornings , a very reasonable rate was charged for the quantity and quality of food provided. We found this experience extremely enjoyable and have discussed making it a yearly event.

Myself and my daughter arrived at the Kenmare Bay Hotel after a 10 mile walk in terrible conditions. We were soaked to the bone.we were greeted by a lovely lady at reception who instantly cheered us up with her friendliness and humour. The room was spotless,warm and very comfortable. The bathroom immaculate and everything working perfectly. At breakfast we were greeted with a solid handshake from Keegan who explained everything with a smile and also checked on us as we were eating. The buffet had everything and was the best that I have seen. The variety and presentation was amazing. There was also a menu on the table offering Vegetarian and Vegan options. The breakfast staff were very attentive and friendly. We were checked out by Esther who was also smiley and friendly. So thank you to the Manager Andrew and his Crew,very impressive.
