Called in for tea on fri. 16th of august 2013. Tea and scones were ok. Used the rest rooms. The gents had no soap in the dispenser, and the towels were well used and needed changing. The ladies had a broken mirror frame and towels needed changing. Cobwebs on lights in corridor .we called in about 4oc. pm.

Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone on the West coast of Ireland. Real classic 1930s feel to the hotel. Although it was pouring the grounds are spectacular and the views of the hills are splendid. Walk into Kenmare is very quick and easy. Only downside was that there is no AC. One evening it was a bit stuffy and the open windows didn't do it. Overall great hotel, Francis is a real live character! Ask hm to ride the tricycle! Cheers

This Hotel seems to be very patronised. However, we felt it was very tired now and our suite was very expensive and represented poor value for money.

The duvet was very heavy and seemed old. The bathroom was small, dark and very dated.

We have stayed In various 5 Star hotels in Ireland both large and small and both modern and historic.

We left after just one night and moved north east to a very similar style hotel the Marlfield House which is what the Park Hotel at Kenmare should be like.

A Hotel needs to be Outstanding to justify €500 a night for a Deluxe room which this hotel was not.

Room Tip: No room justifies the price sorry

this is one of those hotels where the hotel is really nice, the rooms though are small, and while one can enjoy the old world charm in a hotel -I think atleast the room must be modern enough-so when a heat wave has hit the whole of Europe and the rooms have no air-conditioning 'leave the windows open' was the advice I had at hand from the front desk...which I think is pretty ill timed when you consider that day light is till 10 pm!!
the rooms in the same category have different sizes, and I had one which was tiny...the bathrooms are OK...they had what they referred to as a balcony, which was not much.
the plus is the restaurants have good food, a very efficient staff...great wine list..
I wish they'd pay more attention to the rooms, they do need to...

Room Tip: ask what size your room is! don't fall for the balcony/verandah trap!!

This is a luxury hotel in Kenmare which was my favorite town on the ring of Kerry. The grounds are spectacular the rooms are classic, clean and comfortable. The pool is stainless steel with sauna and top rate spa. Highly recommend. A bit expensive.

My husband and I spent two nights at the Park hotel following our wedding at Dromquinna in June. We had a beautiful room and were wonderfully looked by all staff but especially John Brennan and Ann-Marie who were very attentive.

Myself and my husband just spent 3 nights in the Park Hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were delighted to be upgraded to a suite which was a lovely surprise! All the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful - so you get well looked after but it's not done in a standoffish way, the opposite in fact as we got to have lovely chats with various members of staff. We had dinner on one evening and loved the food - especially the gorgeous dessert - also loved the breakfast - can't remember the last time I stayed in a hotel where the whole breakfast including juices were served to the table - we were lucky to have fab weather and got to have breakfast on the terrace overlooking the beautiful scenery. Our room was very spacious and the four poster bed was one of the most comfortable we've slept in. Some of the reviewers are correct when they say the place is a bit dated and faded in parts but to us it added to the charm. Did I miss air conditioning - in this (rare) heatwave? yes! - but when I'm booking into a very old building I don't expect air con to be honest. We spent a lovey weekend in October in 2009 at the Park and our only regret was leaving it so long for our return trip - we won't be making that mistake again! We would definitely recommend a stay here.
