Went for a drive to Dromquinna to see the whole offering there. It is a gorgeous location. While day was wet we still enjoyed visiting. Went into the boathouse and actually really enjoyed ourselves. Much Sangria and tapas later we enquired about rooms but waitress told us that only camping was available. This was very disappointing as I had choosen here because I had seen on tripadvisor in hotel section. A couple at the next table helped us by driving our car to Kenmare town and we stayed at the Lansdowne Hotel which is a nice old town centre hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Dromquinna Manor is a 40 acre estate on the shores of Kenmare Bay. The Manor is dedicated to catering for weddings up to 180 guests in a magnificent Victorian building with a warm contemporary decor. A simply stunning setting with personal service. We have 14 tents on the grounds which are fully furnished and feature really comfy beds with duck down duvet and goose down pillows. Camping was never like this. The Boathouse Wine Bar & Bistro offers a tantalizing selection of dishes by the water. Shutters on the Pier is an informal party venue on the water that is ideal for informal parties for up to 120 people. ... more less
