Park Hotel Kenmare, Kerry
Dating back to 1897, heritage and luxury are combined at the Park Hotel Kenmare to create a gracious home that is yours to enjoy. A vibrant hotel with wonderful facilities like a deluxe destination spa SÁMAS, 25m pool and a cinema, but a venue who are not ashamed to be old fashioned.
This Victorian landmark has 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.
Tradition is important here 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.
Luxury adorns each of the 46 bedrooms in the Park Hotel Kenmare which are complemented by rich fabrics, original antiques and interesting art. Superior Rooms enjoy small sitting areas and are very comfortable for a short stay or guests travelling on their own. Deluxe Rooms overlook the water and have spacious sitting areas. This category is perfect for extended stays and those celebrating a special occasion. The Suites also enjoy water views and have dining and sitting areas in an open plan configuration.

The Townhouse – The Town House is an architectural award winning mews in the centre of Kenmare.

Dining at the Park Hotel Kenmare is an experience in every sense. With lovely views over Kenmare Bay, an elegantly simple Lily Chandelier, blown specially for the dining room by Millers of Bond Street, typifies the detail of what happens under its discreet watch. The ever changing menu that reflects the richness of the area is enhanced only by unfailing service and tantalising creations from the kitchen team lead by Chef James Coffey.
Local produce is sourced for all dishes. Blessed with a hinterland laden with quality producers you will experience something special. The kitchen and dining room team are some of the most innovative, creative and service orientated people in the business.
From its inception SÁMAS, as its interpretation from Gaelic implies, was designed to provide an indulgence of the senses. At SÁMAS guests embark on a three hour journey that incorporates Thermal and Holistic treatments of your choice with pure relaxation.
The treatments were specially designed for SÁMAS using techniques and traditions from the foothills of the Himalayas to the waters of Kenmare Bay. The SÁMAS experience is without comparison, leaving guests feeling totally rejuvenated.
