Wonderful restaurant run by amazingly nice people. The food was amazing and the atmosphere of the restaurant was cozy and warm. This is a great place for travelers with celiac disease. There was delicious gluten free bread and they knew which dishes were safe.

All was excellent - food, wine, service! We took Halibut and Devin Sole with sides which were superb. Such gentle mix of tastes collected in one plate! Apple crumble with almonds was a special treat and a small cup of choco - basically a chocolate fondant - was a highlight of our long sunny day in west cork & kerry.... More

Throughout our visit to Kenmare, all of the locals said Packie's was their favorite by far and I understand why. The food was delicious and the atmosphere made it so enjoyable -- lovely stone walls and overall just a great style that made it feel like a special spot in Ireland, without being 'fancy'. My mother and I tried a... More

Recommended by the hotel. Definitely need a reservation. Food was delicious, a definite thumbs up. We enjoyed all of the fish dishes that we ordered. It is close and a little dark inside but we felt that added to the ambiance. Try it... I am sure that you will enjoy

The fish here is honestly as fresh as it comes and I'm constantly impressed by the delicious golden brown crust they have on all their fish! Yum! I promise not to leave it another three... More

My husband and I visit Kenmare at least once a year, and Packie's is always at the top of our list for restaurants to visit. The food and service are beyond compare! We ordered an appetizer of crab cake which was a crab apple salad full of fresh crab meat with a savory side dressing. Entrees were fresh stuffed Dover... More
