My wife and I booked into this hotel for a wedding.There was a SPECIAL price for the wedding guests €136.00!! However my wife's niece and husband booked in on the day and did'nt mention the wedding and the cost was€80.00!!! The room was old fashioned but clean.The bathroom lighting was very poor.The meal was fairly good but nothing to write home about.The breakfast next morning was buffet style and the food was Luke warm.Though both the bar and reception took cash,no cash back was available with drinks being charged to the room only!!! Will not be going back there again.

Our apartment was two bedrooms and had everything we required. It was quiet, clean and very comfortable. I would highly recommend. The location is close to town and we even had a small back yard. Kenmare is a smaller town than Killarney but with loads of character and well worth the visit.

We stayed in the luxury lodge for 3 nights, had my toddler with me as it was a family wedding. There was a high chair, travel cot and stair gates in the lodge. The house was lovely and clean. It really was luxurious couldn’t ask for more to be quite honest!

The food was gorgeous in the restaurant on the first night.
The staff were lovely in the restaurant/bar.

Wedding the next day and I have to say the bride (my mother) was especially delighted and most the staff made everything run so smoothly for her!

All in all, I would highly recommend this place for either weddings or just to stay for a few days!

We've been to this hotel 3 times now, twice as a couple and most recently we brought our kids.
On our first stay we were in the main hotel. The bed wasn't great and it was a bit noisy as there was a wedding on so people were wandering the corridors for most of the night.
The second time we stayed was in one of the lodges. This was a completely different experience - much quieter and far more comfortable.
Our latest stay was again in one of the lodges and we really enjoyed it. We have 2 young children now and the extra space in the lodge was great for them to play in. We also had all of the amenities we needed (cooking facilities, high chair, cot, etc.) so it took all the stress out of "simple" experiences like eating. We lit a fire in the living room and had a couple of really cozy nights.
We've used the leisure centre on each of the visits and it is great. There's a good size pool for swimming lengths and there is also a side pool for kids.
The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the town centre, which has loads of pubs and places to eat, so it's very handy for those who fancy a night out.
I'd definitely recommend the lodges in this hotel to anybody who is thinking of a few days in Kerry.
