GM’s April Letter

It’s a very exciting time currently at the Kenmare Bay Hotel & Resort! Spring is in the air, the birds are singing and we’re looking forward to a busy season. To welcome in the season, we are proud to announce the introduction of several new facilities at the hotel.

Our brand new, state-of-the-art, 5* standard holiday lodges opened recently. There are 14 of them, each comprising 2 double bedrooms with en suite bathroom, and they are finished to an extremely high standard of decor and comfort. Set within the grounds of the hotel, they are close enough for guests to avail of all the hotel facilities yet far enough away to afford a little peace and privacy. They are outstanding and have to be seen to be believed! Of course, we also have the 18 4* holiday homes which opened last year. These are beautifully finished and well equipped, and can sleep up to 7 people. Video footage of the holiday homes will be featured shortly on our website, so look out for it!


In addition to our new holiday lodges, we are also refurbishing several of our standard hotel rooms. This is being undertaken as I speak and they will be ready by the time the season kicks in fully. Each bedroom is being re-carpeted and re-fitted with new furniture and fittings.


Our famous Jasper’s restaurant is now offering a Sunday carvery. This will be available from 1.00 – 3.00 pm every Sunday, and booking is advisable. We are offering superb value for money; a two course meal plus tea/coffee for only €15.95 with a children’s menu also available. Go on, treat yourself!


We are also offering a completely new and re-vamped menu and wine list in Jasper’s. If you’ve visited our restaurant before, it’s time to return and sample our new menu. If you’ve never been ………….. what are you waiting for??

A date for your diaries …….. Sunday, 25th of May 2008 will be the annual Select Hotels Teddy Bears Picnic in aid of Barnardos. This is an extremely worthy charity, which supports children whose well-being is under threat. The Kenmare Bay Hotel, together with other hotels under the Select banner, will be hosting a Teddy Bears Picnic in the hotel, from 3.00 to 5.00 pm. Entry will be €5 per child, with special Barnardos Teddies for sale on the day for €10 each. All proceeds from the sales go directly to the charity. More information to follow, but make a note of the date now and tell your children about it.

That’s it for now – more news next month
