The perfect wedding needs a dream setting, making the multi-award-winning Kenmare Bay Hotel & Resort the ideal Kerry hotel for your wedding. From our elegant banqueting suite's breathtaking views to the warmth and expertise of our staff, it is no wonder that the Kenmare Bay Hotel is one of the most popular wedding hotels in Kerry.

A discreet path leads you from the hotel right into the heart of town, where you can relax among the award-winning restaurants, colourful shops, and lively pubs. If you're feeling active, you can choose from golf, fishing, walking, watersports, and horse riding.

Our Wedding.
20/09/2019 was a very special day for myself and my now husband. It was the day we celebrated our wedding.
We held our reception in the Kenmare bay.
From the minute we enquired of available dates with Sile we knew this was the spot. She had a very calm yet precise manor. Always

there when needed, she is a fountain of knowledge. Which was a welcome while trying to organise a wedding with a new born baby. Nothing was too big a task.
On our wedding week, Sile was a constant support. Again, In the back ground yet always at the other end of the phone if needs be. She was so helpful re: table plans, arrangements, music etc.. defiantly the type of person you need around you on a week of constant running and racing, it was so comforting to know all the details at the hotel were being taken care of by Sile who’s attention to detail was 100%

On the day, we had the most wonderful driver Carlo, supplied by the hotel. From the minute we met Carlo we were so comfortable with him. As was our baby girl who took a liking to Carlo straight away and spent majority her time between family members and Carlo until we arrived at the hotel. Which although far above his call of duty, Carlo was happy to oblige. We couldn’t have had a better man around us on the day. Professional, yet friendly, funny and all round a lovely person to share our first few hours as man and wife with.

When we arrived at the hotel we met Tom. We had never met Tom up to this stage, Tom who had filled the position of co-ordinating the wedding on the day for many years and was now working in a different part of the hotel, but was filling in for holiday leave the day of our wedding. Despite having never actually met Tom before, he knew everything there was to know about us as if we’d been in touch the entire time. Professional, friendly and all round fantastic at this job, attributes all staff in the Kenmare Bay hold. Tom delivered 110% on the day also.

From the first email we sent to the last word we had with the girls at reception. I can not recommend the Kenmare bay highly enough. Location, staff, food, accommodation, cleanliness, family friendly. Our in-house babysitter Mary. Everyone was incredible.

Well done to such an amazing team of people.

and wedding perfect.

All our guests stayed at the hotel in the lodges and houses, they loved it. They were all looked after from the minute they arrived to the minute they left.

On the wedding day everything was organised for us, we didn’t have to worry about anything. We were constantly checked with and asked if we needed anything. All of our guests were looked after perfectly. Our family and friends are still talking about how perfect the wedding was and how amazing and helpful everyone was at the hotel.

We honestly can’t thank you enough for our perfect day. We loved every second.
We will be coming back in the future!.
