What can i say about a hotel that has it all. The Kenmare Bay Hotel is exceptional!! From the moment that we went to view the hotel for our wedding venue to the days after the wedding, the staff, the service and the atmosphere has just been second to none. The hotel itself is beautifully decorated and our reception room was picture perfect. Tom, Alan and Sile are a credit to deal with, so on hand and so helpful. The attention to detail is excellent. The food at the hotel and for our reception was divine. Family and friends are still talking about how good the food was from the lovely tender meat to the creamy mash patatoe. The kenmare ...

My husband and I had an amazing Christmas wedding at the Kenmare Bay hotel! The hotel looked stunning and it was all we could have hoped for to make our day so special. From beginning to end Tom our wedding planner made the whole wedding an enjoyable relaxed experience.Our family and friends had a ball and remarked on all the little touches and details from the hampers of goodies in the ladies toilets to meals being delivered to the guest houses on site for little kids who were too exhausted to stay up for the reception. Tom used so much initiative and was so kind and helpful to us and all of our guests. The food was outstanding!!!! Many of ... Read more

Having just gotten married in the Kenmare Bay, we cannot recommend the hotel highly enough to anybody thinking of booking their wedding there. From the moment we met with Alan in January 2016 to the time the wedding took place on 30th of December 2016 we had a wonderful experience. Each one of the team at the hotel were extremely helpful and made us feel very welcome each time we visited throughout the year. There wasn’t one request that was too much trouble for them and everything we asked for was accommodated. The wedding day itself couldn’t have went any better, running extremely smoothly. Tom deserves a special thanks here, we genuinely didn’t have one single complaint and we really ... Read more

We got married on the 16th of July 2016 and we can not praise the Kenmare Bay Hotel enough for all they did throughout the day. All our guests had a great day, the food was fantastic, the venue was beautiful but most of all Tom and his staff were outstanding. They ensured the day ran so smoothly.

We had our wedding at the Kenmare Bay Hotel in June 2016 and were blown away by the overall experience. The venue itself was exactly what we were looking for in terms of food, atmosphere, scenery and overall experience. We had booked 6 holiday homes for the whole weekend. It was fantastic as everyone could go from house to house at their ease. Tom and the rest of the staff were nothing but helpful in the run up and during the course of our weekend-we couldn't praise them enough. As a wedding venue we couldn't fault anything. The food was out of this world on both days and all our guests commented on the quality of food on offer. The ... Read more

The Kenmare Bay really pulled out all the stops for us, from the initial meet to the day afterwards they were top notch and always willing to go that extra mile to make our big day run fantastically. The planning process with Tom our wedding coordinator went smoothly, no request no matter how small or large was dealt with a can do attitude and that was very much re-assuring as it meant we could focus our planning on other aspects of the big day. We found the rest of the hotels staff to be of the same mindset and were always super helpful and quick to address any questions/queries we had. The day itself went like clockwork for us and ...

Joanne and I got engaged in September 2015 and because of our long association with Kenmare and because I had been to a cousins wedding in the Kenmare Bay Hotel it was an easy choice for us to have our reception there. From the time we sent our first email of interest Tom, Hanneke and all the staff were first class. The build up to the wedding that can be such a stressful time for the bride and groom was made much easier because of the help of Tom. He gave us his personal mobile number and told us he was available at any time. Any query we had was answered promptly. Joanne and I got married on the 20th ... Read more

We had our wedding at the Kenmare Bay Hotel during July and could not recommend the hotel highly enough. We dealt with Sile initially and then Tom once the booking was made. Both were a brilliant help throughout the process and nothing was too much trouble. Hanneke was very helpful regarding the accommodation and ensured all of our guests were taken care of. Mossy the driver was very calm and friendly on the wedding day as was his wife Helen working in the function room. Everybody commented that the food was amazing and that they had a great day. Thanks a mill, Mike & Noreen

Our wedding was in September 2016. We chose the Kenmare Bay Hotel because of its excellent quality but also value for money. We could not have been happier. The function room is beautiful, the staff are more than helpful and obliging. We didn't have to think about anything on the day, things were already done before I even knew it, huge weight off your shoulders on the day so that you can sit back and enjoy it all. I genuinely wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Kenmare Bay Hotel as a wedding reception venue, we had an absolutely fantastic day.

Outstanding venue! Had our wedding here in September this year. Was an unbelievable day from start to finish. Tom and his team couldn't have done anymore for us. Every person we met afterwards said it was one of the best meals they ever had at a wedding. Everything was perfect from start to finish, from the pre reception drinks and canapés to the food at the end of the night.They didn't cut corners with anything. We had choices of other hotels but am so glad we went with kenmare bay hotel. Great value for money. Great staff. Great wedding venue. Would recommend it to everyone.

The minute we walked into Kenmare Bay for our show around, we knew straight away that it was the hotel for us. The management were so accommodating, nothing was ever a problem and we never had to worry about a thing for our reception. The service and the food was out of this world and so many people complimented it after. The small details and extra touches made our day all that more special to us. We were so delighted to have held our wedding reception in the kenmare bay. We have no hesitation in recommending the hotel to any bride or from because they are in for a real treat.

We got married in the Kenmare Bay Horel last March. From the get go everyone was so helpful. Any question or query was promptly answered by Sile, Tom and co. There was always someone at the end of the phone to help us out. We had a taster meal, it was absolutely divine. Our parents joined us, making it a memorable night. Everything on the wedding day itself went spectacularly, Mossie arrived out to chauffeur us. We had a lovely picnic on the way down of delicious sandwiches and bubbly. The drinks reception was a fabulous start to the day for our guests. The banqueting suite was decorated exactly how we had wished. The food was top class and we ... Read more

Thank you to everyone at the Kenmare Bay for making our wedding so special. I cannot rate Tom highly enough he is a huge asset to your hotel and the number one reason we decided to have our wedding with you. We had visited the hotel as guests before but had never been to a wedding there. We really liked him from the moment we met him, he was genuinely a nice person and wasn't in your face like a lot of other wedding coordinators we had met in other hotels. We knew from the moment we met him that we were in safe hands. At the night of the tasting he was brilliant and when we told him we ... Read more

Our wedding was in the Kenmare Bay hotel in July 2015. We were so pleased we chose this venue because the staff took such great care of us throughout the process. We met with Síle and Tom both of whom helped us to come up with the perfect wedding package to suit us. We enjoyed a beautiful food tasting menu and a complimentary overnight stay to get a feel for the hotel. Hanneke took care of our accommodation requests so well, she was always available to answer calls or emails with any questions we had.

We got married at the Kenmare Bay Hotel in August 2015 and I cannot recommend them highly enough as a wedding venue. From the moment we looked at the venue, they were always only an email or phone call away to answer any questions we had. On the wedding day itself, the staff were fab - they looked after everything, which meant we could relax and enjoy the day. They couldn't do enough for us. The food was amazing and there was plenty of it, our guests are still raving about it! We are looking forward to returning there on our first anniversary!

The wedding day itself went perfectly and we did not have to worry about a thing as everything was so efficiently organised by Tom and his team.

We got married in Kenmare in February and chose the Kenmare Bay Hotel for our reception and I can honestly say it was one of the best decisions we made. Neither my husband or I are from the area but from the moment we walked in to the hotel we knew we wanted to get married there so we planned our ceremony and reception around Kenmare. Sile was so helpful from the very beginning even with helping us decide on the church there was nothing too much for her and she was always on hand to answer every question we had she truly is an incredible woman. Hanneke was so helpful when helping us with our reservations for our guests ... Read more

From the first time we viewed the hotel to the wedding day itself, everyone and everything at the Kenmare Bay Hotel was fabulous. The staff are so easy going but extremely professional. Nothing is a problem and they have an answer for everything which is exactly what you need when planning a wedding. I felt completely confident that everything in the hotels hands would run smoothly which it did. The guests all remarked on the excellent accommodation options such as the lodges which was very important to us as many people were traveling from abroad. The food at the wedding was lovely and again I had many guests commenting on the dishes and the speed of the service. A special ... Read more

The Kenmare Bay was our first choice for our wedding day having been a guests of another wedding we we're able to review how our guests would feel very easily. The food of the Kenmare Bay outstripped any rival nearby and the accommodation was able to host our numbers without thinking about shuttle buses or dispersed accommodation for guests. The process of booking was easily started, the hotel staff (Síle and Tom) were readily available to discuss preliminary prices and a breakdown, the flow of the day, and schedules. Their value was shown in their in depth wedding management experience and the care and concern for our booking despite having done it for many others. The lead up to our ... Read more

After dealing with Sile, we met Tom, what to say about Tom... you kind of fall in love with him! Everything was so well organised and seemed to be no trouble at all. He was only a phone call away when I needed him. Hanneke was on the ball with reservations, constantly keeping us up to date and helping out all our guests.

The Kenmare Bay Hotel & Resort in the foothills of the spectacular Kerry Mountains provided us with a memorable Wedding Day! From meeting Alan and Tom in the initial stages to the ongoing communication with Síle and Hanneke the planning was seamless. Anything we asked for was catered for without qualm. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and menu tasting experience prior to the Big Day. It was difficult to choose with so many tasty options (especially the desserts!) From early morning on the day with the arrival of Mossie our chauffeur it was all go. He ensured a timely entrance at the Church and was ready to greet us again after the ceremony with light refreshments to keep hunger at ... Read more

The reception was fantastic, the meal and service was of an exceptional standard and our families and friends are still talking about it. Tom was unbelievably helpful and made the whole day hassle free and run so smoothly.

Our experience with the Kenmare Bay Hotel and its team was wonderful from beginning to end. We found the all of the organising in relation to the reception in the lead up to our big day so easy - we felt the staff genuinely cared about our wedding and what we wanted. The day itself was just wonderful. From the ever delightful and chatty Mossy picking us up in the roomiest car ever, to the special welcome we received on arrival, the food (so many compliments about the food!!) to the end of a long night of dancing, we could not fault how the day went - even a power cut couldn't dampen the mood!

The perfect wedding! We were a little nervous planning an Irish wedding from abroad, however the staff at the Kenmare Bay Hotel were absolutely fantastic and could not have done more for us. From our first meeting until our big day there was always someone on hand to offer advice and arrange everything. The quality of the hotel and all of its suppliers were brilliant. Safe to say that we had an amazing day and could not have asked for anything more. All of our guests were well fed, smiling and had a brilliant night. If we did it all again, we would not change a thing. Thanks again to the Kenmare Bay Hotel for the best day of our ... Read more

We will be back again along with many other happy customers :-)

We had both our wedding ceremony and reception at the Kenmare Bay Hotel. From the start of our planning, every question and query we had was answered by Sile, Alan, Tom and Andrew. Nothing was too much to ask for (and I had a lot of requests). The venue suited us perfectly as we live locally so it meant that my family who were travelling could stay in the hotel/ houses, and my husband’s family were close enough to walk home at the end of the night. We chose to have the ceremony at the hotel at 4pm, which gave me the morning to relax and get ready without rushing. I stayed in one of the Luxury Lodges the night ... Read more

We decided on the Kenmare Bay Hotel almost immediately as our wedding reception having met with Sile & the team in early 2014. We visited a number of other venues too but the Kenmare Bay was for us. Both my husband and I are local to the Kenmare area and we were extremely lucky to have such an amazing venue on our doorstep. The Kenmare Bay in our opinion is top class. From the arrangement of the package, to the meal tasting prior to the wedding, to liaising with the individual teams , nothing was a problem and the attention to detail excellent. The day itself was fantastic. Again attention to detail, hospitality, work ethic by all staff , all ... Read more

We held our wedding reception at Kenmare Bay Hotel in March 2012 - it was such a fantastic day that we still get compliments from family and friends saying what a fabulous weekend they had ! Tom was our wedding co-ordinator and left no stone unturned. He was always there to answer any questions we had about the day. Some of our guests travelled from overseas and they all felt very much at home during their stay at the Kenmare Bay Hotel - this was very important to us. We would definitely recommend the hotel for anyone looking to have their perfect day and hope to travel back down to the hotel soon! Thank you very much guys

Big shout out to Mossie the driver who was a huge help as I was a nervous wreck on the day. The food on the night was top notch, cannot fault a thing . Thank you very much guys and keep up the good work!

We had our wedding reception at the Kenmare Bay Hotel last year and all I can say is Wow! Wow! Wow! . At the start I was a bit worried as some of my family have special dietary requirements but Sile and Tom put me at ease when I mentioned them . The food was wonderful and I couldn’t praise the hotel high enough! Thank you very much Tom and Sile and all the staff at the Kenmare Bay Hotel for making our day just perfect !

We got married at the Kenmare Bay Hotel during the summer of 2012 and all I can say is what a wonderful day ! As ourselves and most of our guests were travelling from overseas , the Kenmare Bay Hotel was the perfect venue with holiday homes and cottages . Tom played a blinder on the day making sure everything went according to plan . I would highly recommend the Kenmare Bay Hotel to host your wedding . Thank you to Tom and all the staff for making our day unforgettable ! Paddy and Maureen

We got married in The Kenmare Bay Hotel and we could not praise this hotel enough. Every dealing we had with the hotel leading up to our big day was excellent but we still didn't expect everything to be as perfect as it was on the day. The man driving the bridal car was lovely, really friendly and helpful without being too formal. It rained all day but on arrival to the hotel all of the managers were waiting at the door with umbrellas to keep all of our guests dry. We thought this was a lovely touch and many of our guests commented on it.. The food was fantastic both on the day of the wedding ( everybody was ... Read more

From start to finish the staff at The Kenmare Bay Hotel could not have been more understanding, courteous and professional. Tom in particular was absolutely fantastic, his devotion to making our wedding day as relaxed and stress free as possible was only out done by his manner and attention to detail. Added to this the food was absolutely amazing and is still being talked about today. If you’re looking for a venue that ticks all the boxes, including great value for money then look no further than The Kenmare Bay Hotel as it was, in our opinion, the perfect wedding venue. Thanks again to Tom and all the staff .

Just back from our honeymoon. Got married in Kenmare and had the reception in the Kenmare Bay Hotel. Fantastic experience !. The wedding guys (Tom and Andrew) played blinders. Guided things along nicely and always at hand to make sure everything went to plan. The food was excellent and the overall atmosphere was superb. Staff were on the ball at all times and very pleasant. Scenery was breath-taking. Overall everything was pretty much perfect on the day - and in the months beforehand they were very accommodating and helpful. Absolutely delighted we had our reception here. As were all our guests! I cannot fault this place - hats off!

We had our wedding in the Kenmare Bay Hotel Kenmare , we wanted to stay in Ireland and have our wedding somewhere down the country in a beautiful setting and it was magical . It started with their wonderful sales manager Sile Browne who we booked the day with, she was so professional and personal at the same time, it was so easy to arrange . She then introduced us to Tom who manages all the weddings in the hotel, each month he checked in with us guiding us through with all the arrangements, anything we asked for was never a problem, and he gave us the most wonderful day of our lives, he remembered everything we wished for, the ...

We celebrated our wedding here on 14th February and even though the phones and Internet were down and power was out in some places due to the storm , the service we got was faultless from the day before the wedding to the day after we could not but praise the hotel and staff. We stayed in the lodges the night before , when we arrived the fire was lit and made it very cozy and welcoming. It is decorated to a very high standard. It was absolutely beautiful and we got great pictures there. Tom and all the staff were so helpful and nothing was a problem for them. The food was fantastic and our guests are still talking ...

Myself and Shaun had the best day of our lives and we cannot praise Tom and his staff highly enough. The Kenmare Bay Hotel and the entire staff were absolutely amazing and made the entire day so much easier by their professionalism. From the moment we met Sile, who showed us around the hotel, we knew it was perfect. They answered all our questions. They helped us with decision making. They accommodated all our needs and wishes. On the day, Tom kept everything running smoothly. We had not a single worry on the day. We would also like you to extend our thanks to the entire kitchen staff for the wonderful food on the day, which people are still congratulating ... Read more

I just wanted to take the time to tell and thank all the staff at the Kenmare Bay Hotel for a fantastic wedding day , it was beautiful and everything was to perfection. There was no job too big or small for Tom and the team and our guests still tell us how much they really enjoyed the day and the fabulous food. We had a fabulous weekend and an unforgettable wedding so thank you all so much. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone getting married for a stress free day and an amazing venue.

Our wedding day was everything we wanted and more. The staff and good was exceptional and although we had over 300 guests, there was not one issue. Tom is great at all the little bits and made us feel unique and special. All is all 5 stars and would Definitely recommend.
by Claire Foley on Fri, 21st November, 2014
We got married in the picturesque town of Kenmare last December. We had quite a big guest list at 230 so choosing the Kenmare Bay hotel as our venue was a no-brainer. We met with Síle at our initial meeting and she was so welcoming and friendly that we knew straight off how uncomplicated planning our wedding reception would be. We had huge choice with regards to menu choice and all our guests complimented the quality of the food that we were served on the day. We got married the day of the worst storm last year and even with power outages in Kenmare, the day ran so smoothly and the staff were so professional that we didn't know any ... Read more

by Tara and Cathal O Sullivan on Fri, 21st November, 2014
I had my wedding at the Kenmare Bay hotel on August 9th 2013. Myself and my husband were extremely happy with the hotel and its staff and the manager of the wedding Tom Meagher. I was able to ring the hotel at any time leading up to the wedding for anything. They helped me with lists of bands and DJ’s and flowers etc. The wedding car was included with the hotel which was great so we didn't have to organize that .I would recommend the Kenmare Bay Hotel to anyone thinking of getting married as everyone enjoys the whole day. The meal was beautiful.
by Anna and Alan Smith on Fri, 21st November, 2014
We got married here on the 14th June 2013. From the moment we contacted the Hotel in early 2012 and then viewed the place and met Tom, we knew this was the perfect venue for our wedding. A special word of thanks to Mossy our driver who put me at ease the moment I got into the wedding car. Our guests still talk about the delicious food on the day! I couldn't praise the Kenmare Bay Hotel high enough. Thank you very much to Tom and all the staff.
by Edel and Paddy Kelly on Thu, 20th November, 2014
Our wedding guests are still talking about our wedding reception with the Kenmare Bay Hotel. It was a fantastic experience! Everything was perfect for our wedding. From the initial meeting to viewing the hotel as a possible venue, booking the hotel, then meeting with Tom Meagher who really helped us with organizing and planning the day, picking the wedding menu and organizing the wedding tasting weekend; which was a fantastic experience before the big day also. The staff, service, food, facilities and atmosphere can't be faulted at the Kenmare Bay Hotel! We both would give the hotel 100% and highly recommend it as a wedding venue to anyone.

Our wedding was on the 25th of July 2013. We visited theatre Kenmare Bay Hotel to view their reception room and from there moment we arrived we were amazed at the service that was provided and that was shown to us right there way up to our big day. Keith was leaving from the hotel and from there moment he woke up all the staff made sure he was relaxed even when his best man had them running around getting stuff he needed and all the staff went above and beyond what there job entailed. After our service we had to go for our photo's and our driver was a legend had everything in a picnic basket for us and ... Read more

Despite both myself and my husband being Dubliners, there is no other place we would have gotten married only Kenmare!! We love this beautiful part of the country and having visited the Kenmare Bay Hotel during our several visits down and we found it a natural choice as our wedding day venue. From initial enquiry right through to enjoying our sumptuous breakfast the morning after our big day, we could not fault this hotel in any way. Tom is simply a pleasure to deal with and was always available to take a call, be it for advice, to answer my questions or simply to offer some local knowledge. Completely professional, hugely knowledgeable and a top bloke too! With our whole ... Read more

The Kenmare Bay Hotel was a superb venue for our wedding on 1st of November 2013. While the hotel itself was absolutely stunning, it was the fantastic, enthusiastic and accommodating staff that made the organising of the day stress-less and the day itself exactly as we had dreamed of. Any query I had for Tom was always met with "absolutely no problem!" It was a great relief for us to deal with a hard-working professional. The room rates for our guests were excellent and all bookings were made with ease with Hanneke. The hotel also provided a wedding car which was driven by the lovely Mossy. Mossy even brought us to a beautiful park in Kenmare where we got the ... Read more

We got married at the Kenmare Bay Hotel in December 2013 and it was a magical day. I would not hesitate to recommend the hotel as a wedding venue to any couple. The Christmas decorations created a warm, cosy and festive atmosphere on a cold, dark day. The chauffeur, Mossy, was just amazing. He was incredibly helpful and just so friendly and relaxed he really put us at ease. We were starving on the journey from the church to the hotel and Mossy had a picnic basket for us with tea, sandwiches and champagne!.There were lots of nice little touches like this over our wedding weekend. Tom was our main point of contact with the hotel and he was a ... Read more

From the moment I entered the Kenmare Bay, it was filled with style, warmth and very relaxed atmosphere I knew my family friends and neighbours would be here 12 months on for our wedding day. It was a very special day for both my husband myself and everyone involved, from advise, food accommodation entertainment, they were all very helpful, practical, supportive. We had the best 3 days there, and our families and guests loved it. Thank you Tom Mossey and everyone in the Kenmare Bay you made our memories.

It only takes a few short words to describe the kenmare bay hotel. Magical, splendid and overall a fantastic place to celebrate your most special day. From the staff, the food, the honeymoon suite, to the view from the wedding room, the guest lodges. It’s all spectacular a day to remember and breath taking. I cannot recommend the Kenmare Bay Hotel highly enough.
by Joanne & Michael McCarthy on Wed, 12th November, 2014
The Kenmare Bay Hotel was always going to be our number one choice of venue for our wedding in January 2014. My sister had her reception at the hotel in the summer of 2012 at which all the guests had an amazing time. In regard to our own wedding in January 2014 we had a brilliant experience with the hotel from start to finish. Tom, Sile and all the staff could not have been more helpful. Tom was always at the other end of the phone and made our journey to our special day such a lovely experience. We had a lovely time at our meal tasting just before Christmas last year. It was a magical setting with all the ... Read more

From the moment we got engaged I had nowhere else in my mind for our wedding reception but the Kenmare Bay. I have been to many weddings there as a guest and could not fault it in any way. As the bride I also could not fault it. From the moment we started dealing with Tom and the team it all went so smoothly. Having to organise the wedding from Galway was a worry because of the distance but there was no need with Tom and gang being on call by phone and email at all times. And as my hubby said on the day there was never a "No" said to us about anything we wanted!!!! The accommodation is ... Read more

From our very first interaction with the Kenmare Bay hotel in preparation to the wedding to the days following I found the whole experience thoroughly relaxed and stress free. The Kenmare Bay Hotel offers a professional service - delivering excellent quality food, fantastic rooms, and many additional extras which made our wedding day so special. I have recommended the Kenmare Bay hotel to many of my friends because of the friendly staff who make you feel so special on the build-up to the wedding. In the days following the wedding we received really great feedback from our guests about their experience of the venue which reflects the great wedding service which is provided by the hotel. I look forward to ... Read more

The Kenmare Bay Hotel and it's staff really did pull out all the stops for our wedding in July this year. We knew from the start that we would have a big number but we hoped it wouldn't go over the 350. In the end 389 adults and children sat for the meal. The Kenmare Bay Hotel and staff worked efficiently on the day and were so kind and got anything anybody needed. Everything went off without a hitch and on time. The food was amazing, no one could fault it. Everyone's food came out hot and really quickly considering we had 39 tables. The bridal suite was amazing and it was great that we could stay for the two ... Read more

From the moment we starting thinking about having our wedding at the Kenmare Bay we could not have been accommodated more. We dealt with Tom and he was extremely helpful. We only had 8 months to organise but this was not any problem for the hotel. We had our meal tasting 6 weeks before the wedding and it was a really enjoyable experience, with personalised menus and Tom looking after all our needs. Any questions or queries I had were always solved quickly by Tom, who made everything I wanted happen very easily. All our guests had an excellent reduced rate when staying in the hotel for our wedding. Onto the day of our wedding I couldn't have asked for ... Read more

by Catriona Ni Thuama & Ian Walsh on Tue, 4th November, 2014
The Kenmare Bay Hotel was the first hotel we visited when trying to decide on a venue for our wedding. We immediately fell in love with the Hotel and staff and subsequently found it extremely difficult to find an alternative venue that could come close to matching the value, beauty, attention and support we had experienced. The banqueting room was stunning, clean and bright and afforded many options for the layout of tables and seating. The menu was extensive and versatile and included many options as standard, where as other Hotels would charge for individual courses. The staff were excellent. We would especially like to mention the Banqueting Manager,Tom, who was extremely attentive, helpful and accommodating and his attention to ... Read more

Words can not express how thankful we are for all the hard work and effort that Tom and his team put into our wedding at The Kenmare Bay Hotel. I knew from the moment I walked into the Kenmare bay that it would be the hotel that we would celebrate our special day with friends and family, the staff were so welcoming and Tom discussed all our options which led to the most magical day of our lives. We were treated like royalty from the beginning, anything that was asked of Tom he went beyond the call of duty to make sure our day would be perfect and exactly what we wanted it to be. We both thought that our ... Read more

From the moment we saw the Kenmare bay hotels brochure at the wedding fair in the RDS we were both hooked. There was something about it that made us want to see more. We went down to view it and Tom and the staffs were so welcoming. Tom went through everything with us and was open to all our suggestions for the wedding day. Tom was always there to take a call from us or answer an email. Sile and Hanneke were great when it came to our guests booking accommodation. (Especially with my 2 sisters who had specific requirements)!!! Our night for menu tasting was made special by a lovely welcoming note and a treats left in our bedroom. ... Read more

I don’t think I could say enough to reflect just how perfect our day was at the Kenmare Bay Hotel. From the moment we viewed the venue we knew we could stop looking! It was so professional and could not offer a better wedding package. Where the hotel was concerned we didn’t have to lift a finger except show up for a menu tasting and an overnight stay which we enjoyed immensely! From Mossie, the hotel Chauffeur, arriving to the house on the morning to leaving the hotel on Monday afternoon, the hotel could not do enough for us. Both us and our guests were greeted with a warm welcome and extremely efficient staff to look after every need from ... Read more

From the moment we first had dealings with Kenmare Bay Hotel, I found wedding organiser Tom, along with other staff members very efficient and helpful. Tom was always available at the other end of the phone and expertly dealt with any and all queries we had. The hotel supplied a beautiful chauffeured driven car which arrived in plenty of time on the morning of the wedding and the driver was very helpful and kind. On arrival at the hotel, we were greeted by Tom. The meal was served on time and the food was second to none which prompted alot of our wedding guests to comment favourably afterwards. All staff were very efficient, courteous and helpful at all times throughout ... Read more

We had an amazing experience at the Kenmare Bay. Having only 5 months to prepare for our big day, Tom and all the staff made our journey such a relaxing experience, nothing was a problem. Everyone at our wedding complimented the food, atmosphere and still today our guest’s remark on the hotel. I have recommended Kenmare to numerous of my friends who have since married and had their reception there and they also had a wonderful experience. The worst thing I can say about our day was that it went too fast!
by Sarah Constant & Kevin Bradley on Mon, 27th October, 2014
From start to finish the Kenmare Bay Hotel was what we dreamed of. The staff especially Tom could not have done more to make us and also our guests feel special. We were as relaxed on the day as we knew it was all in safe hands. I cannot recommend this hotel more... In fact we have and friends have also booked it. Everyone of our guests commented on the hotel, service and relaxed home from home atmosphere. Even now when we stay there everyone makes us so welcome. Wish we could do it all over again.

From first contact right through to checking out after the wedding, all the staff were super helpful and professional. We had hoped for a very relaxed atmosphere at the reception and this is exactly what we got. Everything ran very smoothly on the day, and a lot of our guests have commented on this. I have to compliment Tom Meagher in particular. The food tasted absolutely amazing and was exactly the same as our menu tasting. I have heard many stories from couples where the food on the wedding day was not up to the standard of the menu tasting but I ... Read more

From the moment we chose the Kenmare Bay as our venue we were given a wedding day to remember. We received numerous compliments from our guests with regard both the venue and the food, both of which were excellent. All the expectations of our day were surpassed. As we were not living in the area, arranging contact and meeting with Tom or Hanneke was always accommodated, even when we dropped in at short notice and took Tom away from his child's birthday party. We won't spoil it but Tom and his staff have some nice surprises and little extras, that just add to the whole experience. We had family staying in the holiday homes and they were delighted with the ... Read more

They welcomed us and our guests and helped us enjoy our day to the max. The hotel was fabulous and the function room was breath taking. All our table names and every little detail we requested was taken care of. Our guests still talk about the amazing meal that was served on the day. We would highly recommend this hotel as a wedding venue and would give it 5/5 full marks.

The Kenmare Bay have given us a day to remember. The compliments we received from our guests really made our day. The food was fantastic. We had a few with dietary requirements & Tom and his team looked after them without fuss. Our wedding day was seamless and surpassed our every expectation. Tom is a effecient wedding co-ordinator and the hotel has exceptional service, one that would in my option be very hard to find in a different venue. Taking care of our beauty needs just before our big day we headed to the spa. The attention to detail and relaxing services on offer was just what we needed. Our therapist was knowledgeable and very professional. I only wished I ... Read more

From start to finish, no request was too much trouble. Every email and phone call to Sue, Tom and Hanneke were promptly answered and efficiently dealt with.

There aren’t words to describe a Kenmare Bay Hotel wedding! From the minute we decided to go with Kenmare Bay it was so easy to work with them all. And on the day from the arrival of Mossie at the house with the car to when we said goodbye to Tom on Monday morning it was a fantastic experience. We’ve had fabulous feedback and the shell for the presentation of the fish went down a storm. We’re so happy we went with the hotel. Small details mean so much and with Kenmare Bay there were lots - we got champagne in our room when we went for our tasting; a car was sent to collect me and take me to ... Read more

This was one of our reasons for choosing The Kenmare Bay Hotel for the biggest day of our lives!As we are not from the locality, Jonathan and I had to rely on our fantastic wedding team-Sue, Tom & Hanneke who were friendly,professional,courteous and very understanding. Every email and phone call were promptly answered and efficiently dealt with. We felt no request was too big or too small. Even last minute,night before and on the day, brideszilla wishes were granted with a smile and no problem attitude!

This was down to the impeccable service from the Kemare Bay Hotel staff. From Mossy driving us after the service to the minute we left the hotel our every need was catered to. Tom and Sue were the easiest to deal with and were at our beck and call from the moment we contacted the hotel up to the big day! The food was amazing and even my extremely critical Uncle couldn't but sing their praises! Plenty of beautiful food choices for our guests and the wine kept ... Read more

We are living in France and a lot of our guests were French whom have said they really enjoyed the helpfulness of the staff and the welcome they received, I would rate the hotel as a definately 5 star.

We got married in June this year at the Kenmare Bay Hotel. We could not fault one thing,and were more than happy with the service and the way everything was layed on for us. It gave us more time to enjoy ourselfs and had less to worry about before hand as well as on the day. It was a great package all in and very reasonable price. Would recomend the Kenmare Bay to anybody getting married for a stress free lead up and day. Thanks to all staff who were very friendly and helpful. Caroline & Liam.

I would highly recommend to anyone getting married to go to the KBH. From the very beginning, I found the staff very easy to deal with during my initial enquiries, and the prices were comparable or better than many other Kerry hotels, although what I was offered for that price was (in my opinion) much better. In the run-up to the wedding everything was kept easy and simple, the wedding co-ordinator Tom gave us great advice on menus, layout, timing etc. We got any information we asked for, but weren't bombarded with questions or emails. The hotel sent a clear and easy to use template for the table plan and were very accommodating to all our requests. As the majority ... Read more

My Husband and I got married in this hotel in March this year. I have to first start off by saying it was just everything that we could have wished for and more. The little extra touches are brilliant and they have a few surprises for you which was great. Tom the wedding co-ordinator was fantastic he is a credit to the hotel made everything flow really well and looked after all of your needs from start to finish. I found the Kenmare Bay hotel online and really liked it from the pictures so we decided to head down for a night to view the hotel.

The staff at Kenmare Bay are fantastic and they really know how to cater for a big crowd. Our meal was delicious! I got married in February and my guests are still complimenting the meal, and the hotel. In all honesty, I cannot praise Tom, Sue and the rest of the staff at Kenmare Bay enough! Well done, and keep up the good work.

From our first visit to the hotel we just fell in love with it and we can honestly say all of our guests did also. The Kenmare Bay took the stress out of the build up to our wedding, Tom checked in with us on a regular basis to see how all our plans were going and we knew we could contact him at anytime with any question or query we had. The day itself ran so smoothly from the moment it started the service was fantastic and the food was outstanding. The staff are all so friendly and helpfull and nothing was a problem. The room was decorated lovley the lighting really sets the mood and the mountains in ... Read more

We spent the best weekend of our lives in the Kenmare Bay Hotel.A five star rating for a five star wedding venue Our wedding was on Friday 2nd of September and from the minute we arrived everything was faultless. The hotel prides itself on its weddings and its very evident to us having experienced the brilliant function room, the gorgeous food and the amazing staff why they have won wedding venue of the year in the past. We choose to stay the weekend with a large group of our family & friends doing the same and even though our wedding was over we were still treated brilliantly with the hotel even putting on sandwiches and teas and coffee complimentary for ...

We couldn't have had a more perfect wedding day. Right from the start Sue, Tom, Hanneke and all the team at the Kenmare Bay Hotel made us feel that our wedding was as important to them as it was to us. Living in London, we organised much of our wedding over the phone and via email, every response was prompt and usually started and ended with "No problem!" The wedding day itself couldn't have been more perfect (apart from the rain!) The banqueting suite looked amazing, the meal was superb and we have had so many fabulous comments from our guests about the hotel. No surprise at all then that they won 'Wedding Venue of the Year!' Thank you everyone ... Read more

this hotel was an excellent wedding venue. Lovely decor. VEry comfortable. Gorgeous food. Excellent service. Lots of attention to detail - the hotel thinks of things or provides things that you wouldn't even think of!! And even though the staff are doing this work all the time, they still manage to make your wedding feel important. I didn't ring this hotel once! I didn't have a thing to worry about! Everything was taken care of so well. 5 star rating!! highly recommended Susan O' Shea & Enda Crowley 29th July, 2011

Keith and I got married on the 1st July this year. We travelled with 200 or so of our family and friends from North Tipperary. From the moment we went to see the hotel we knew it was the pefect choice for us. I had utmost faith in Tom and his team. Getting married away from home was not at all stressful at all but that was due to Tom and the staff at the hotel. On the wedding day itself everything went perfectly and nothing was a problem. A number of guests commented that it was the best wedding meal they had ever had and the staff were so nice and accommodating with every request. Kenmare itself is the ... Read more

The Kenmare Bay Hotel were out of this world for our special day - weekend. We and all our guests had the best time ever. We had surprises lined up for our guests, fireworks, irish dancers and a sweet table and the hotel just arranged them on the day for us - we hadnt a care in the world, just time to enjoy ourselves. The food was fabulous too. Our family and guests are still talking about our wedding - Unforgettable, the whole experience.

I can wholeheartedly recommend the Kenmare Bay Hotel & Resort to any couple hoping for a magical wedding day. From the moment we booked we knew we were in capable hands. The management & staff at the hotel are outstanding & could not do enough for you. They really make the hotel what it is. The facilities are fantastic & I must say my jaw dropped when I actually saw the function room set up on my wedding day. Tom & the staff did an amazing job & the little touches & attention to detail was fantastic. They really exemplify excellent customer service because they exceeded not only our expectations but our guests still talk about the hotel, the function ... Read more

Five star, from start to finish, Our wedding is still the talk of friends and family, mainly due to the friendly staff and to die for food. We would also like to thank Andrew, Tom, Sue, for giving us both the day of our dreams. If it was possible to go back and change any thing on that day, all i could think of , is to slow down the clock, so we could enjoy it even more. To anyone thinking of having their wedding in The Kenmare Bay Hotel all i can say is, sit back and enjoy the feeling that you and your bride are not only in professional hands , but also in the company of people ...

Ahhh... where can I add on a couple of extra stars?! Because these guys deserve it! We had our Wedding reception New Years Eve 2010 in the Kenmare Bay Hotel. Here my husband (!! I still giggle every time I say that!!), family and I were treated like royalty. The help and assistance that was provide to us from the very moment we met with them 18 months prior to the wedding was just outstanding. They really cared and paid attention to every thing we said, they really wanted us to have the wedding of our dreams. Like most, planning a wedding is a once off, and of course we had ideas of what we wanted of the day and ... Read more
