Kenmare Town..

The beautiful town of Kenmare is a small tranquil country town, famous for its gourmet food and superb scenery. It's set amidst breath-taking landscapes in one of the most unspoilt, natural environments in Europe.

The town is located at the head of beautiful Kenmare Bay which stretches 50 kilometres from Kenmare out to the Atlantic Ocean. The name is an anglicised version of Ceann Mara which translates into 'head of the sea' in English. The original Irish name for the town is 'Neidín' meaning 'little nest' because the town 'nestles' amongst the surrounding mountains which are such a striking feature of the landscape.

Kenmare town has a unique identity of vibrant coloured, characterful buildings and its inhabitants' pride and concern for the immediate environment has twice resulted in Kenmare winning the 'Tidy Towns' competition. The 'Tidy Towns' awards are accolades of which the locals are justifiably proud.

The town of Kenmare is ideally situated on two famous tourist trails - The Ring of Kerry and The Ring of Beara. The Ring of Kerry is known all over the world and follows the spectacular coastline of the Iveragh Peninsula. It's one of the most dramatic scenic drives in Ireland and makes a most enjoyable day tour. Along the 175 kilometre route are picturesque towns and villages, like Sneem, Caherdaniel and Cahirciveen, an abundance of historical landmarks, sandy coves and beautiful beaches.

The Ring of Beara is less well-known than The Ring of Kerry but no less impressive. Its rugged beauty is beyond compare, traffic is minimal and there's a wealth of archaeological sites and spectacular views waiting to be discovered.

With every possible amenity at your fingertips, consider the Kenmare Bay Hotel a destination venue and offer your guests a unique experience in the heart of the Kingdom.
