Families at the Kenmare Bay

The leading family-friendly hotel in Kenmare, the Kenmare Bay Hotel & Resort takes care of everyone at every age. For an affordable and pleasurable stay, kids under 12 enjoy free B&B* and endless hours of fun at our kids' clubs, while children aged 6 to 15 can get out and about with our outdoor camps (in conjunction with Star Outdoors).

We anticipate the needs of all guests, providing family, disabled, connecting, and triple rooms to suit. We also understand that adults need their time too, so our restaurant has a dedicated Kids' Corner, fully supplied with kids' games and DVDs to keep the younger members of the family entertained while you enjoy your breakfast or dinner at your leisure. Add to that a kids' playroom, playground, and kids' club and you will soon find that the Kenmare Bay Hotel has everything to keep your little ones happy!
