Kenmare Town

The three star approved White Heather Farmhouse is a short drive from Kenmare town centre. Kenmare is a haven of tranquillity, gourmet food and breath taking scenery in one of the most natural, un-spoilt environments in Europe. It’s location on the edge of the sea provides Kenmare with seafood that is quite simply the best.

Kenmare is no stranger to awards having won numerous Tidy Towns awards in the past:

  • Tidiest Town in Ireland 2000
  • Best Kept Town in Ireland 3 times since 2000
  • Gold Medal Winners for the past 20 years.
Founded in 1670 by Sir William Petty, the unique charm and inherent beauty of the town remains unchanged. The Tourist Board, Bórd Fáilte, officially recognised the historical, cultural and environmental significance of Kenmare by bestowing upon it the title of Kerry’s first Heritage Town.
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, the Wild Atlantic Way,  linking the internationally famous Ring of Kerry with the rugged Ring of Beara.
