    The Park Hotel Kenmare is nestled peacefully in an idyllic setting overlooking Kenmare Bay in southwest Ireland. Built in 1897, this stunning 5 star hotel furnished with antiques and objects d’art is the perfect way to combine luxury and the great outdoors. While most rooms have either a full water view or private veranda, the rooms and suites are individually and lovingly designed, combining original features with the latest modern luxuries.

    Southwest Ireland has some of the best food in Ireland.  At the Park Hotel, the food experience is rooted in produce from the hotel’s kitchen garden as well as local artisan producers such as Cork & Kerry fishermen, cheesemakers, dairy farmers, bakers, market gardeners and the in-house chefs and sommeliers. The Park Hotel Kenmare hosts both a stylish Champagne Bar and a Cocktail Bar, in addition to the classy dining room where the magic happens.

    Your holiday is the time to explore new places but it is also the time to relax and take care of yourself. After a day of adventuring, settle into the Park Hotels’ SAMAS Spa, devoted to nurturing the mind, body and spirit. Relax and unwind away from the hubbub of modern life in this stunning spa.

    Local Experiences

    Lakes of Killarney Boat Trip

    Ireland’s very first national park, Killarney National Park is one of Ireland’s most beautiful places. From lush forests to lovely waterfalls, mountain passes and some of Ireland’s highest peaks and of course the glittering lakes of Killarney, there is much to discover here. On this experience, join a cheery boatsman to sail across the lakes keeping an eye out for views of Ross Castle and the stunning backdrop of mountains. Return through the impressive Gap of Dunloe, crowned by peaks on all sides. You can choose to hike back through the Gap of Dunloe or take a jarvey, a traditional horse cart for a truly once in a lifetime experience.

    Visit the Skellig Islands

    The Skelligs are some of Ireland’s most recognisable and spectacular landmarks. In fact, these islands are so wild that they were used in several of the recent Star Wars films as Luke Skywalker’s hideaway. In the real world, the Skelligs are UNESCO World Heritage sites and host some of the largest bird populations, including puffins during the spring and early summer, and roughly 40,000 pairs of gannets, among other birds. On Skellig Michael, the spectacular ruins of a 7th-century monastery cling dramatically to a cliff. Located 11km off the coast, they are not easy to visit. Take a boat trip out to the islands to explore their monastic heritage, birdlife and Jedi connections.

    Beara Peninsula Ancient Archeology

    Located just south of the Iveragh Peninsula (known by most as the Ring of Kerry), the Beara Peninsula is a quiet and under-rated land. Beara is an oasis of heritage sites and sacred places. Join an archaeologist on the Beara Peninsula who will conjure up a connection with Ireland’s bygone times. Enrich yourself in the ancient Beara heritage from mass rocks and stained glass to Neolithic ruins and of course the Cailleach Beara’s (Hag of Beara’s) fossilised remains which overlook Coulagh Bay, still awaiting the return of her husband the sea god Manannan as the folklore goes.
