Kenmare in Ireland is a haven of tranquillity, gourmet food, superb accommodation, Golf Courses, Riding & Trekking and breathtaking scenery in one of the most natural, unspoiled environments in Europe. Cradled in the heart of Kenmare Bay, the picturesque town of Kenmare is the perfect location from which to discover the South West of Ireland, linking the world famous Ring of Kerry with the rugged Ring of Beara.  Just bursting with amazing views and loads of other things that will inspire you to greatness and let your mind run wild.

Founded in 1670, though many generations have passed since then, the unique charm and inherent beauty of the town remains unchanged. The Ireland Tourist Board, Bórd Fáilte, officially recognized the historical, cultural and environmental significance of Kenmare by bestowing up on it the title of Kerry’s first Heritage Town in Ireland.
