Kenmare Bay Hotel voted overall wedding venue!

We were so pleased to be voted best overall wedding venue of the year and would like to thank everyone who voted for us. Thanks also to Fiona and the gang at for hosting these awards and for helping us all get our name out there. The wedding business, as we all know, is extremely competitive so every little bit of PR helps. We’re not letting this award go to our heads though, we know the importance of keeping up our standards and improving on them where possible. You’re only as good as your last wedding! It’s important too, to remember that each wedding must be unique for the couple concerned. We do lots of weddings but they, hopefully, will only do it once so it must be special and it must be memorable for all the right reasons. We always try to remember that at the Kenmare Bay Hotel.

I think it’s fair to say that we are popular with brides and grooms in the key areas of our Banqueting Suite, our food and our staff. But we are also lucky enough to be situated on the edge of the beautiful little town of Kenmare. Anyone who has visited Kenmare will know what I’m talking about. It not only offers award-winning restaurants, more pubs than you can shake a stick at and several unusual, quirky shops but it also has a great atmosphere and lively night life with late night bar extensions and live music in several of the bars. We’ve hosted several weddings at the Kenmare Bay Hotel where the couple was from Dublin, Limerick, Northern Ireland, England etc and in each case most of their guests made a weekend of the wedding – some choosing to stay in our holiday homes or luxury lodges – and made full use of Kenmare town, which is only a short stroll from the hotel via a pathway.

We can cater for weddings from 50 to 350 guests. If you would like to find out more about the Kenmare Bay Hotel & Resort, please contact Sue on 064 66 41300 or
