The Lansdowne Kenmare

An elegant bolthole on Kerry’s wild and unspoilt Atlantic coast

In keeping with its origins as the town residence of the Earl of Shelbourne, The Lansdowne Kenmare is a refined, calming retreat set in the heart of the pretty heritage town of Kenmare. Surrounded by Kenmare’s bustling boutiques, quirky art galleries, and traditional Irish pubs, it’s been reimagined today as a stylish town hotel where you can expect a traditionally warm Irish welcome.

After active days out and about, retreat to your bedroom where crisp sheets, fluffy towels, elegant cabinetry and pops of colourful accessories provide welcome respite. Unwind in marble-lined bathrooms or sink into a soft chair and plan tomorrow’s adventures. Downstairs, welcoming staff ferry delicious, expertly crafted dishes to tables in the brasserie-style Dining Bar Terrace to fuel days in the open air. Refuel on home-baked cakes and rousing coffee in LK Café, round your day off with a chilled glass of wine in the LK Wine Bar or The Piano Lounge, or lift your gaze to the immaculate clear skies with a glass of brandy on the outdoor terrace on warmer nights.

Standing at the top of a bay in the shadow of the emerald Cork and Kerry Mountains, Kenmare – known as ‘the Jewel on the Ring of Kerry’ – is a gateway to the great outdoors. Enjoy a scenic drive along the ruggedly beautiful Beara Peninsula, paddle the glassy waters of the estuary, and hike stunning mountain trails. For more sedate days, meander around the galleries and restaurants of the town’s quaint streets.

Enjoy your stay!

Spot basking seals on gentle coastal walks, pedal freely down quiet country roads or feel the wind on your face with uplifting mountain hikes.
