Park Hotel Kenmare

It is with great pleasure that John and I welcome you to some very special places in a special corner of Ireland, Kenmare.

The Park Hotel Kenmare is a vibrant hotel with wonderful facilities like our Deluxe Destination Spa SÁMAS, SISLEY Treatments, 25mt Lap Pool, Cinema and daily lifestyle classes, but also a place where we are not ashamed to be old fashioned. This Victorian landmark, dating from 1897, with its splendid views over the glistening waters of Kenmare Bay, the ever changing light of the Cork and Kerry Mountains, the adjoining 18 hole golf course, garden walks and the Heritage Town of Kenmare is our home. Tradition, in every sense, is important to us as is the fun of today, the devilment of a younger guest, the delight of a couple holding hands and the delivery of true service. It is a rare place where the decadence of the past is married with the modernism of today.

Park Hotel Kenmare, a little Irish magic in the Kingdom of Kerry, on the majestic Wild Atlantic Way awaiting your arrival. Visit

Stylish beyond words with views of Kenmare Bay celebrations here are truly memorable. The Drawing Rooms and Terrace all make for a very special and memorable occassion for all.
