He discreetly suggested on seeing our age that we take a room in the east wing as the music from the disco might disturb our night's sleep! (We were...

My sister and I recently took our mother, who is 93 and to the Kenmare Bay Hotel. So very often elderly people can feel invisible but there wasn't a chance of that at the Kenmare Bay. The staff were wonderful and provided excellent service to all of us, but specifically to my mother. The food at dinner was mouth watering...

We recently got married in the Kenmare Bay hotel in October.

My wife and I spent two nights in The Kenmare Bay Hotel. At best it is about average,more holiday camp than 4 star hotel. The rooms are acceptable, the food is not great and is served in a very unattractive restaurant. The bar is cramped,bar food about acceptable.

We stayed here for two nights while exploring the area and found the location to be very convenient. Lots of parking and a short walk to downtown added to its convenience. There is also a small supermarket just down the hill if you need to pick up supplies. The hotel itself is large and caters to bus tours so we...
