Good Hotel Guide Review
Cast your sights across the suspension bridge from the heritage town, towards this much-refurbished 17th-century fishing lodge. The luxury hotel (Palladian Hotels) overlooking Kenmare Bay and the Sheen waterfalls has plush bedrooms, fine meals, a serene spa, a host of entertainments, and a three-tier afternoon tea. Tastefully decorated, modern bedrooms are in the main building, or in cottages or villas in the grounds. Some are spacious enough to accommodate a family. Daily-changing modern Irish menus are served in the well-regarded restaurant. Head out to play golf or tennis, ride a bicycle or horse, fish for salmon or discover the 19th-century plantation; return for tea or Irish whiskeys in the sun lounge and cocktail bar.
