Park Hotel Kenmare

    The Park Hotel in Kenmare’s nine guest suites—no two of which are alike—feature open floor plans, dining facilities, sitting rooms, canopy beds, and original oil paintings of museum quality. A short, candlelit corridor leads from the Park’s main building to Sámas (pronounced saw-vas), a destination spa. Built from timbers and rocks gathered on-site, the spa is a minimalist oasis amid the hotel’s Victorian opulence. Accommodations The 46 rooms include nine suites; all suites afford views of the river, the hotel’s gardens, and the Caha Mountains. Recreation Treatments at the resort’s architecturally stunning spa, Sámas, commence with a traditional Irish foot massage. The hotel also has a 12-seat movie theater. Dining Lobster, crab, salmon, and sole highlight the dining room’s menu, which reflects Kenmare’s long relationship with the sea. Worthy Diversion Take a guided tour (in a limousine or helicopter) of the nearby Ring of Kerry, the rugged and scenic peninsula just south of Kenmare. Rates Superior rooms begin at $220, suites at $420.
