Our apartment was great. Fully equipt with everything we could need for our stay. Lovely walks and close to the hotel for us to walk to so that we could use the pool and eat at the restaurant or bar. We did find that the amount of little children was just a little too much.
Prob one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in and that includes various 5*. View from room was wonderful, room was immaculately clean, bed was comfortable. Will definately return! Staff extremely helpful, couldn't fault anything
The Ard Na Sidhe is in a beautiful setting on Lake Caragh, and has gardens that are wonderful to explore. The hotel itself is also beautiful- a home built in the early 1900's, converted to a hotel. We stayed in the newer garden house, which was more modern. The restaurant at the hotel was also fantastic- one of the best meals I've ever had. I'll definitely be heading back if I can!!
"Stayed herel before but wouldn't stay here again"
Hotel excellent location for Kenmare and touring Ring of Kerry etc. Staff friendly. But...
a) Car parking poor - most days had to use the car park for the adjacent leaisure complex.
b) Food in restaurant OK but not up to standard of many of Kenmare restaurants; service mechanical. Breakfast just about acceptable, but coffee abyssmal and bread not up to Irish standards.
c) Bed poorly sprung and pillows uncomfortable. Decor in room abyssmal - curtain rail had been lowered in past, holes in wall had not been repaired and wall repainted.
d) Bath took ages to fill, water had peaty colour
e) Woken up early every morning by coach passengers with early departure making noise in corridor and bouncing cases down the stairs
f) no obvious lift to upper floor
Lovely place. Our complaint is that some of us missed breakfast. We pre ordered night before to have breakfast ready at 8. It was not ready. We were expected to have cereal and drinks before we could get breakfast but we weren't told that. Some had to leave without eating because the bus was loading.
