Nice hotel in an excellent location and very friendly staff. Unfortunately there are some serious flaws with the accomodation. The room we had was very hot and stuffy, even with the window open. We would have liked the underfloor heating in the bathroom, for novelty value alone, but it wasn't working. The biggest issue was the sound insulation, or lack...

Quiet hotel located 5 minutes from the center of town and another 5 minutes walk to the bay. Staff pleasant enough and had a good breakfast. The bedroom was comfortable enough and included a queen sized and single bed. Biggest plus is the hotel is located on the Ring of Kerry and the centre of Kenmare, which is much better...

We stayed for 4 nights in one of the Kenmare Bay self catering lodges in October. Due to low season, we got a great autumn deal, reduced rate - €249 for 4 nights, so it was excellent value.

Love this spot. Even though there was a large wedding on, there was plenty of staff and we didn't want for anything. Bar food is excellent, bar services spot on and again the room was spotless. Thanks to all the staff, for another lovely stay.

We stayed to celebrate a family wedding and it was just perfect. We arrived early, but a room was made available immediately by the very friendly and understanding gentleman at reception.
