Had a blast in the Kenmare Bay Hotel and cottages this week with the family. The cottages are spacious and very modern with great facilities and most important - great wifi! The swimming pool is large and very family friendly. We had a great time as a family and look forward to a return visit! KB

Stayed here last friday. Room was very dated. Fire alarm went off a few times.. Tried ringing reception... waste of time. As for the receptionist who checked me in on friday night,a very unpleasant person. I found her to have a real attitude. I hope the other resident i spoke to got sorted as he was going checking out .

Great for the kids and grandchildren, and the hotel for the grandparents. Spacious holiday homes, well equipped and comfortable hotel rooms. Great breakfast and close to the town with a lovely walk down a lane (no noisy cars ) to the town centre.
