Lovely staff so helpful and friendly. Great food, Very good wheelchair access rooms and a pool hoist. Excellent.
We had a g brilliant 2 night stay in The Kenmare Bay , I had two requests and I received both of them,following an email to the Reservation Manager ,thanks again ,we will be back soon
I think the hotel needs an upgrade in everything. Painting needs to be done and the food wasn't great. We ate in the bar restaurant and the starter was lovely but the main course was only ok. The buffet breakfast in the morning was only ok. A bit disappointed to be honest.
Another lovely weekend had at the Kenmare Bay Hotel. Staff super friendly, hotel spotless clean & cozy. 5 Minute walk into the town. Kenmare town & people divine ...
Lovely room. good food both breakfast and evening meal. all the staff were friendly and smart appearance.nice sized pool lovely and warm.this was our 4th visit and I know we will be back :-)
Lovely hotel. Friendly staff. Food is excellent. The only fault is the beds are on the small side.
really enjoyed our stay in kenmare bay hotel. Very friendly staff and service was very good. Dinner which was served in the bar at this time of the year was excellent . one criticism however was the red wine which was very good, could have been served in a proper red wine glass, and the heineken was flat. The room was very clean , modern and spacious ,however the bed was not the most comfortable.
I thought the hotel staff were very pleasant. The dinner we had was excellent and the breakfast was decent too. The one issue I had with the hotel was that we stayed in the old section of the hotel which really requires a refurb. The rooms, although clean and comfortable are very cramped and don't offer alot of protection to noise. Overall we had a good time and will be back, but perhaps this time requesting a room in the new section of the hotel.
my husband and I have just spent a three night break in the hotel, it was lovely and relaxing. The staff where very attentive and friendly from the housekeeping to management a hello and a smile was always given. The food was fabulous a different evening menu every night. We will definitely be spending another break in this lovely hotel. E &H Clinton Co. Louth 5stars
Fantastic hotel, great food, friendly staff, great location, very affordable, highly recommended...
We had a lovely meal on last Friday in Kenmare Bay Hotel. The room was comfortable , very warm and spacious. The breakfast was full of choice and lovely. It was a most pleasant stay.
Lovely hotel, staff were friendly and helpful, I left an item behind and they had it and posted it to me straight away. Rooms were clean, food was lovely.
We got Dinner B&B for 2 nights here, the food was absolutely amazing. The staff were lovely and always doing their best for you. Anything we asked for we got. Only a short walk from the town. The leisure club is great, good size pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. Part of the hotel is old but the renovated rooms are fine. They have newer rooms which looked lovely so depends on how busy they are as to which room you will get. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone and would purchase as a gift for someone.
We have been coming to the Kenmare Bay hotel for years and as always it was a wonderful break. The staff are so nice and it's great to see the same people there year after year. The food in the restaurant is absolutely delicious!! It's a very family orientated hotel with babysitting, kids club and a large swimming pool. Great for couples who want to relax too. Five stars!!!
Really enjoyed our stay - Excellent food & facilities -Staff very friendly as well. Well Recommended
Absolutely a fabulous hotel, the friendliest staff, extremely helpful. With fantastic food. Will definitely stay there again in the future
room small service very good food excellent
Our meal in the restaurant was very disappointing. We asked if we could have chips and salad with our steak and were refused told it came with potatoes only. So we were charged â‚¬3.50 for chips. The steaks already had a â‚¬5 supplement. The steaks were supposed to be 8oz but they clearly were not. I had mine medium and my husband's was well done. His was larger than mine which anyone cooking steak knows that a well done one shrinks more. The waitress was foreign and did not once ask if everything was ok. Her manner left a lot to be desired. Surely it can't be that hard to provide salad and chips if required. The barman was very obliging despite the fact that there was only another man and ourselves in the bar and he was also covering reception. The room was nice but we mainly went out for dinner for my husband's birthday
We had a fabulous time in Kenmare,. The hotel was great and the staff were excellent. I would highly recommend the hotel to friends. Thank you Today FM.
This hotel is nice. We did NOT have a great experience there however. We had booked for 2 adults and 2 children under 12. On arrival, our room only had 1 double and 1 single bed. At reception we were asked "do you want us to put a camp bed in, we no family rooms available?" Well, having booked the room 2 months in advance and mentioning it was a special treat for my daughter's confirmation, I was very unhappy. A complimentary bottle of wine was left in the room. We were told that the head of reservations would be in work the following morning and we could possibly be moved,( we were staying 3 nights), but alas we were never moved, never approached about a change and never asked on check out if we were happy with our stay. Every morning we got odd looks at breakfast when 4 people arrived down for a table as they too only had us down as a party of 2.
Excellent value, food was fantastic. Fabulous staff. Highly recommend.
We had a lovely stay in this hotel on Friday 20th February 2014. The leisure facilities were very good. The staff were very helpful, friendly and professional. The dinner on Friday evening was lovely. The breakfast was also great. There was a very good selection of hot and cold buffet to choose from. This is very close to the town center just a short 3 min walk where you will find lots of lovely shops and restaurants.
We stayed with you on Saturday night and we really enjoyed it, The hotel was very busy but the service was excellentant and the dinner superb.Breakfast also very good. Would definitely stay here again
My husband and I stayed in the Kenmare Bay Hotel recently,this was one of our many times staying in this hotel and have never been dissapointed. We found we got real value for money here. Beautiful meals in your restaurant , pleasant staff, comfortable room and a relaxing swim in your leisure centre. We take at least six breaks a year like this one and the Kenmare Bay Hotel would be one of our favourites Keep up the good work.
had a lovely time and experience in the kenmare bay. the staff where very friendly and informative regarding any questions. the food at breakfast and both from the bar and in the restaurant was beautiful with very generous portions. the water pressure in our bathroom was a little weak but this was our only complaint. we would return to this hotel again in the future.
Stayed weekend 14th Feb. Brilliant evening meal on Friday. Great helpful staff who could not do enough. Only problem staying in old section of the hotel is that the carpet leading from lobby to the fist floor is shabby and dated and the curtains in our room 511 are stained and the chair aged. There are some doors with pieces missing from them. Overall we enjoyed our stay but for those small issues. Will stay again but will look for a room in the new section.
Just stayed at the Kenmare Bay hotel (not the first time) and we had a lovely time, rooms were very clean, breakfast was perfect, went for a swim and the pool area is well maintained. We had the evening meal and it was delicious with steak and monkfish on the menu. I would recommend this hotel and for getting into the town there is a lane behind the holiday homes that takes you into the town in 3 minutes. Michael. (Cork)
Very clean hotel. Lovely room Brilliant food in restaurant. Very helpful and pleasant staff.
our stay in the kenmare hotel was great, as we were attending a family wedding the room was nice ,breakfast was lovely and the staff were were very friendly,would stay there again.
excellent, very friendly and comfortable ,
Had a very pleasant stay. All staff were polite and friendly. Room and facilities were clean and well maintained. Had an excellent meal in the restaurant. The pool, sauna etc was faultless. Even though we didn't bring any children, I felt a child friendly atmosphere where children would be welcome and catered for. Would definitely stay there again and would consider bringing my grandchild along too. Thank you
Lovely hotel. We were there attending a wedding. Staff great and very helpful. Very happy with the rooms, food etc. Thunbs up !!!
Ar fheabas ar fad. Friendly, helpful staff, Clean comfortable room, good choices on menu & food delicious. The piece de resistance for us was that the lady in reception offered to dry our wet gear in an airing room. Hope to return soon.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Staff are very professional and friendly, and the food is excellent. We particularly liked that there was a very good, nutricious vegetarian option every night. I would recommend the new renovated section of the hotel as the rooms in the old section are pretty dark and uncomfortable. Our room was upgraded free of charge when we asked to be moved which was a welcome and kind gesture.
hi really enjoyed stay ,very central location and friendly staff maureen
The Kenmare Bay Hotel was an excellent choice for a group booking. Dinner and Breakfast were included in the Lidl deal that we purchased for 49 e per person. The food was excellent. Most importantly the staff at the hotel were very helpful and made sure the stay was enjoyed by all the group.
Lovely night's stay on 26th April. Staff very welcoming, room pleasant and the inclusive meal was exceptionally good - Judith
Stayed for one night over the Bank holiday weekend with my husband and two year old. We stayed in a superior room which was lovely - also thought the staff were very friendly and accommodating with any requests. We ate in the restaurant and both had beautiful starters and main courses. Hadn't expected to get such a nice meal for the price we paid . Would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. Great value for money.
Lovely hotel, restaurant and staff. We really enjoyed our stay
Nice, clean hotel with friendly staff. Only drawback was no heating in the corridors and also heating in rooms was very old fashioned. It had turned itself off when we had got back to our room so was disappointed when returning to a cold room. Otherwise all was good
We enjoyed our stay at the kenmare bay hotel, the staff were friendly and the room (in the new part of the hotel) was lovely with a very nice bathroom with seperate shower and bath. The pool was busy but nice and clean, if going to the gym a few of the treadmills aren't working and in need of repair. We ate in the bay resturant, the staff couldn't of been nicer but the food was lacking a bit. I would stay in the hotel again but i don't think i would eat in the resturant. the location was perfect as we went on a drive towards sneem and the ring of Kerry the next day.
W e had very pleasant stay
Hi All, Had a very enjoyable stay. The evening meal was absolutely beautiful and staff in the hotel were more than helpful. Again the breakfast in the morning was lovely and plenty of food. I had requested the newer rooms in the hotel but didn't receive one as I was told they were all booked out. This was my second time back to this hotel, so I was a bit disappointed that my request was honoured . I was there this time last year as well as we celebrate my husbands birthday this time of the year. We have gone to the Sneem hotel 3 or 4 times over the years which is quite close to the Kenmare Bay Hotel. We had checked this out but it was booked out . We only booked this break at short notice which was Friday night 8th February as we have children to organise. Also can you confirm if I could book the houses through the lidl breaks. Thanks for your request to have this reviewed.
Really enjoyed the stay, room very nice and food excellent
I enjoyed my stay at this hotel.Food was fantisic would go back again.
We have stayed in this hotel several times over the past few years and are always happy with the friendly staff and good food. Our room was very comfortable as well and my husband loves the pool. At these prices and with Kenmare just a few minutes walk away we will continue to come here for our short breaks.
Our room was very dissapointing - it was old, shabby and very cold. We were in the old part of the hotel and would not recemmond it to be honest, the newer rooms seemed nicer to be fair. Breakfast was lovley on both mornings. Overall I would not stay at this hotel again.
always very happy with our stays at kenmare bay,staff, food and facilities great and just a short stroll into kenmare town.however not sure if its because it was a lidle break but we were in the older wing of the hotel which was just a little less fresh in its decor and less roomey,but not a problem really.
We had a great four day holiday in kenmare bay hotel ....great value for money and super hospitality wil def book again soon !
Our First night in this hotel was a disaster.The room was outdated to say the least a small portable tv the screen was half the size it should be two fuzzy channels.The chair in the room was faded it was that old.Worst of all the shower didnt work.On inquiry we found out they have updated some of the rooms but we got an old room so did our friends that were with us ,also for the breakfast on Sunday morning we got sour sausages.When we complained ihave to say the first receptionist wasnt a bit nice told us she could only give us a simiral room she would let us know when we arrived back from our travels that day no apology.When we got back there was a lovely girl at reception they had upgraded our room thankfully we also got a small reduction in the rate It did spoil our weekend somewhat.I would suggest the hotel close of those rooms until they are of a better standard and that Lidl make sure people who are booking through them dont get those awful rooms.I have to say Kenmare is a lovely town if i go back again i wont be staying in the Kenmare Bay Hotel.
When we arrived at the hotel, the receptionist was very rude and spoke down to us, she checked us in to a small dark room with a old creeky bed, I went back down to tell them I wasn't staying in the room, a different receptionist gave me anoyher room she was very nice, breakfast was horrible and we got steak that wasoff , they did apologise but in this day and age this should not be going on in 3and4 Star hotels, I definitely will not stay here again
The hotel was nice & staff were friendly. The food we got in the bar was excellent, and the breakfast both mornings was lovely & plenty of it. The only thing was the room we got with Lidl breaks was a very basic room, and I did request an upgrade but we were told these were the rooms only available to Lidl breaks. I accepted this as it was understandable with the price we paid, but I did offer to pay more to get the upgrade but was told there were none of the refurbished rooms available. Fair enough, it didnt really affect our stay. But, on Saturday, the 2nd day of our 2 night stay, we went out for the day, and arrived back at the hotel at approx 8.30pm, to find the car park was full, and there was so many cars parked everywhere, on the roadside, any where they could find a s space. I asked at reception what was happening and asked were there spaces reserved for hotel guests. Apparently not, and there was a fashion show on the night, and we were welcome to park further up at the holiday homes section. Other than these small issues, I would certainly recommend Kenmare Bay Hotel, and I would happily return.
Really lovely hotel with a fab leisure centre. We had a great stay here and would definitely return. The hotel is in a lovely location, just a couple of minutes walk from town centre. All the staff are extremely friendly and polite. Lovely bar and restaurant, breakfast was very tasty. Unfortunately we were staying in one of the older rooms and the bathroom could do with an upgrade but it wouldn't put us off returning.
Stayed for 2 nights in this hotel and i would definitely recommend it. The food was fantastic, beautiful dinner & fabulous breakfast both hot and cold choices and the staff couldnt have been nicer. Short stroll to the town and lovely leisure facilities. I cannot fault this hotel :0)
Lovely Hotel, great location. Very friendly helpful staff. Had booked in for 2 nights B & B and one dinner, booked the restaurant for the Saturday night, food was absolutely beautiful. Great value, would definitely stay again. Orla, Gorey
Lovely hotel, stayed here for three nights and found it great base for day trips. Also very close to the town of . Staff v friendly, would return here.
Had a very enjoyable weekend in the Kenmare Bay last weekend ,rooms very comfortable ,staff very helpful ,beautiful food ,would highly recommend for a break
Had a fantastic weekend here, the hotel staff are very helpful and the health club and pool are excellent. The full Irish breakfast and the healthy option were also great. Will stay here again some time in the future. Big thank you to the Kenmare Bay Hotel.
Fantastic hotel close to the town center, Staff very nice and can't do enough for you. Definitely worth a visit the scenery is outstanding with some great walking tracks close by.
We had a short stay , one night , We were checked in by a friendly lady in reception but the directions to our room were very odd indeed, We we told to go accross the car park and up the path and our room was straight ahead, it felt like we were not part ot the Hotel at all, really felt dreadful, the room was fine, clean but nothing to rave about, Frankly would not recommend this hotel.
1 night B&B + evening meal on 31 March. Everything perfect, clean room, good food, friendly staff, great value. Highly recommended
Rooms needed updating and a good clean. There was cobwebs in the bathroom over the shower and dust on the toilet roll holder.. Was awoken at 4am by a noisy stag night. It is understandable that stag nights can be disruptive but the hotel should have got a night porter to investigate the noise as it went on for over one hour and was very audible to more than just those staying on our corridor. Staff were friendly but I had already left the hotel when i was called back to pay the balance on the room. In most hotels if there is a deposit paid before arrival the balance is paid at check in, I felt embarrassed being asked to come back inside to settle the bill as there was a crowd of people at the door of the lobby.
fab food,staff couldn't be nicer
This was the best hotel we've been to on these breaks. It had a warm friendly welcoming atmosphere. The room was very comfortable and spacious with a well appointed ensuite and a fine large modern LCD T.V. (not provided by other hotels to date). Towels were changed daily. And best of all the full dinner menu was available to us. Up to now we had a restricted set menu in the hotels on our other breaks. Of course the buffet breakfast was of a very high standard as well. The break was overall of tremendous value from this hotel and is to be recommended to anyone seeking an excellent base for exploring the Iveragh or the Beara Penninsula.
the kenmare bay hotel on the lidl break was fantastic value stayed a few times great service and the food top marks would stay any time rooms very clean and staff gave excellent service thanks kenmare bay hotel for having us
very friendly staff from the moment you arrive. pool facilities very clean. food was top notch. room was a bit small but was grand for the night and when you think of the deal it was well worth it. will definately be going back again for another stay.
just back from kenmare bay! had a great time! we ate in the restaurant both nights of our stay, great value on valentines night, dinner for 25euros a head, and it was 10/10. we didnt realise we had booked on half term and were worried about kids! no need to worry kids club kept them well occupied! very much our drinks in the bar, with the open fire, and good companions with ash and mac, and especially baby beau, what a charmer! looking forward to our next stay!
Does exactly what it says on the tin!! Fantastic food & friendly staff. Doors banging along the corridor from early in the morning was the only drawback. On the whole though, great value! Will be back.
STAYED JANUARY 2012,NICE ROOM, BREAKFAST AND EVENING MEAL VERY GOOD,STAFF EXCELLENT,LEISURE CENTRE AND FACILITIES VERY GOOD.ENJOYED STAYING IN THIS HOTEL.
Fab stay on 14th jan,can not praise this hotel enough,staff so friendly food excellent ,and room so cosy spotless. Never made it to swimming pool next time,loved our stay thanks for a lovely time. Martina O Keeffe
very nie hotel, food exellent, staff fab
really enjoyed our stay in the Kenmare Bay Hotel; although it was for only one night, it was sufficient to decide that we would be very happy to stay there for a longer period next time. Our room was lovely, with excellent facilities; bathroom with underfloor heating, very comfy after showering! Staff were friendly and helpful, and breakfast excellent also. hope to stay there again, as Kenmare such a special area, and did not have much time to explore.
This is a great hotel and we enjoyed our stay very much. The staff were helpfull, friendly and nothing was to much trouble. There is plenty to do and see around Kenmare town with shops for everyone.
We enjoyed an excellent stay . Lovely Hotel. Bright, nice decor spacious bedrooms. Friendly staff. Short walk (5 mins) to the shops restaurants pubs of Kenmare town
we had a lovely time in the Kenmare Bay Hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful, food great , a really lovely hotel. Am looking forward to going there again
room's very dated,spent two day's there,food excellent but decor left a lot to be desired.
We stayed in Kenmare Bay Hotel on saturday night and the only regreat was our stay wasn"t longer.The staff in all areas of the Hotel were friendly and helpful,the bar food at lunch time was good as was breakfast and dinner,in fact the whole package was excellent value for money.While the bedroom was small and slightly dated it was very clean and comfortable (except for pillows which were a bit hard).The leisure center was a great place to unwind with a swim and a good size jacuzzi sauna and steam room, for the more energetic there is also a good gym.We will definitly return for a longer stay .Lidl breaks are great value and will use them again.
hotel lovely staff great, food excellant AMAZING VALUE would recommend!
HI i would rate hotel as 4 star great time lovely hotel good food would stay again great value for money.
February 2011 We had a really enjoyable stay here.The staff were friendly,the food was excellent and the accommadation was first class.This was our first Lidl break and we definitely will be trying some more Great value for money
Excellent value for money. We went on the one night break for %u20AC49 which included B&B and dinner. The dinner was a two course meal off the al la carte menu, the food was delicious and the service great. The rooms were lovely, the hotel itself a bit dated but fantastic all the same. Would go back again.
Only booked it on saturday lunchtime to stay saturday night The booking hadn't gone thru to hotel when we got there Receptionist was extremely welcoming and professional and there was no hassle Went to room which had not been cleaned properly i.e. dirty glass on one locker sweet paper on other locker dirty glass on dirty shelf in bathroom and single bed looked like it had been used Again no problem with receptionist and she gave us key to another room instead Used the pool which was good though the jacuzzi was cool !!!!!!! Had breakfast following morning and it was so busy there was very little hot food I had one sausage and one spicy sausage There was nothing else on hot buffet at the time except large mushrooms Very close to Kenmare town where we went for dinner and back to hotel for drinks served by great bar staff I know the review sounds a bit negative but we enjoyed our stay overall
WE LOVED THE NEW REFURBISHED KENMARE BAY.COULD NOT REALLY FIND FAULT.THE STAFF WERE EXELLENT FRIENDLY AND HELPFULL. AS WE HAD BOOKED THREE ROOMS AND FOUND THEY WERE ALL AJOINING THEY OPENED THEM FOR US , SO WE HAD LIKE A PRIVATE SUITE.GREAT TO CHAT AND COMPARE OUR PURCHASES OF THE DAY.GREAT FOR A GROUP OF GIRLS OR FAMILY ALIKE. THIS IS MY SECOND LIDLE BREAK AND I AM RECOMENDING THEM TO ALL AS THEY ARE SUCH GOOD VALUE AND NO HASSLE BOOKING,NO STAMPS OR POINTS JUST CLICK AND BOOK !
A three minute walk to the heart of town this was a perfect base for exploring the area. Would stay in this hotel again in a heartbeat. Lovely staff, clean comfortable room. We didn’t eat in the restaurant but did have food in the bar which was the best meal of our trip! 10 out of 10!! Thanks for an amazing stay!
great hotel. will go back there again. would recommend it. ber
We stayed for two nights in October. Kenmare is a really nice town. We also did some driving in the area around Sneem and Cahirdaniel. It was wonderful. The hotel was great. Excellent location, just a short stroll to town. The bedroom and bathroom were lovely, very comfortable and really clean. Great staff and service. We availed of the %u20AC49 B&B plus 2 course meal. It was beautiful. Food and menu really good. Overall this Lidl break was great value for money. Will be booking with them again and telling friends.
Room very clean, staff very helpful ..food excellent. I left my camera in the room ,it was posted on to me. I will be visiting this hotel again.
Great value for money! Choice and quality of food for dinner was fantastic. Highly recommended.
The hotel was simply brilliant. The staff were helpful in every way possible and we had our 7 month old with us at the time. Anything that could be done to make us comfortable was no problem. The hotel is only 5 mins from the village. Its clean and comfy and the deal that we had through Lidl was great value. We had dinner each night as well as breakfast and the food was divine. Would definately recommend both the hotel and the Lidl deal
Stayed in the Kenmare Bay Hotel on Sunday 19th July. Very nice Hotel. Nice friendly staff. Had a lovely meal in the Restaurant. Room was lovely. Spacious and clean. My mobile phone went dead while I was there. Had no charger. Receptionist kindly came to my rescue. Would love to return again soon. Peg and Mike.
nice hotel. great facilitoes.lonely meal.will stay again soon
3 stars - food wasn't great and bar was poor
Very nice clean hotel with very helpful staff. Food was excellent and the bar service was great. It was evidently a new hotel geared for tours etc. The hotel bar was small and lacked atmosphere. The room was roomy and well appointed but very warm with the heating off and poorly ventilated. Even with the window fully open the room was quite stuffy at night. The room we were in was at the front of the hotel and we were woken on at least two mornings by the tour buses starting up. As we had to have the window open, this noise was unavoidable. The internet computers supplied in the residents lounge were very slow and very poor value and badly need to be upgraded or serviced. We would stay here again but only if we know we would get a room at the back of the hotel in a quiet spot.
Most enjoyable stay food excellent rooms v good Bar good overall very enjoyable stay
DELIGHTED WITH OUR STAY. FRIENDLY STAFF. LOVELY FOOD
Nice hotel in Kenmare, good spa, and nice decor and furniture in the general areas. Basic rooms not bad either if a little jaded. Food for dinner ok. Overall very good value for the lidl off season break price & location is in a lovely part of the world.
We loved the Kenmare Hotel and especially Kenmare town. The bedroom was very clean but could do with an upgrade. We had a lovely dinner and breakfast. Staff were lovely and friendly and very helpful. Glasses in dining room were not very clean and carpet could also be cleaned or replaced. All in all terrific value, lovely staff and excellent food.
