Me and my boyfriend stayed in the the kenmare bay hotel, it is a very comfortable friendly place, it is very family orientated and I will definitely return with my toddler on the next visit. We ate in the bar which was very nice and enjoyed the live music. Overall it was very enjoyable and will look forward to returning.

With almost 650 reviews of this hotel I wonder why I should add my 'penny ha'p'orth' of opinion. Reviewers on TA are generally very complementary about this hotel and I too would concur. What prompts me to write this review was that it was the first time I saw a Hotel Reception display its TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. Now I...

We stayed here in August last. Had a great time and the kids loved the pool etc. Whilst the hotel is just out of the main town it is very close to everything around. The hotel caters well for small children. Can be a bit hectic in the bars etc but I suppose it was high season. Nice staff.
