My parents and I stayed there one night while driving around the Ring of Kerry. It was a good hotel, and everything you'd expect for the price: the beds were comfy, the rooms were clean and quiet, and fairly large for Ireland. The staff was helpful - for instance, I forgot my toothbrush and a staff member delivered one to my door. They also had good information on traveling the Ring. The only weird thing was, when we were checking in, whenever my mom asked questions, they would direct their answers to me since "it was my name on the reservation".
The breakfast buffet had a wide variety of food, and was really good. The free parking and wifi was appreciated (and the wifi worked well!). The hotel is very close to everything else in Kenmare as well.
The one thing I wish the hotel had had was an elevator. My parents were up one flight of stairs, and stairs can be difficult for them sometimes, especially when my mom is tired. It was ok since I was there to carry their bags up and down the stairs, but for older travelers on their own, they might find this difficult.

We only stayed for one night but the level of service was excellent. Very friendly staff in all areas but especially the young staff at the bar/ restaurant on the Saturday night. Great banter and chat. The female staff member had to deal with an obnoxious guest but handled herself very well kept her composure and was very polite. Well done.

Spent three nights here at beginning of June, arrived late and extremely tired on Friday night to be met with a receptionist who did not even look at us. She asked us our names and couldn't even bring herself to crack a smile. Came down for breakfast the following morning, the buffet looked delicious, unfortunately with all the heat lamps it was still cold. We eat breakfast elsewhere the next two mornings. Our room was mediocre at best, in need of a facelift, very dated.

I recently stayed in the Hotel for four nights and I can't speak highly enough about it. The staff are superb particularly Tom the wedding coordinator, Ryan at the bar and all the reception staff honestly couldn't do enough for you. My family stayed in the houses just adjacent to the Hotel and thoroughly enjoyed their stay. The houses are extremely homely and ideal for families. I would 100% recommend this to anyone staying in Kenmare.

I visited the Kenmare Bay Hotel at the weekend staying for 3 nights. With the exception of the rooms having no air conditioning, it was a fantastic weekend. The Staff were very welcoming. The rooms were spacious & the food, especially on Sunday night (compliments to the Chef) was delicious. I look forward to returning.
