Welcome to Kenmare
Kenmare is becoming increasingly popular as a henparty as for women living in Munster it isn’t as far as Kilarney or Tralee, but as a small town it has a feeling of being miles from anywhere.
For those that prefer the small town henparty, over the big town or city, Kenmare is a perfect location. It is small enough that you won't lose a member of the party and can find everything on foot, but at the same time it's not too small that you keep meeting the same crowd in every pub you visit. Kenmare is a very special place with it's pretty streets with the mountains rising up behind .
The accommodation situation in Kenmare is perfect – there are town centre guest houses and hotels that are generally hen friendly, so you can step outside the front door and not have to walk far.
Kenmare is a tourist spot. Lots of Americans, French and Germans which means there is a constantly changing crowd. Having dinner in a restaurant full of continentals can make for great atmosphere on a hen.
Shopping in Kenmare is poor if that is one of the activities planned for the hen bu because it is a tourist destination there are many knitwear and novelty shops. If arts and crafts are your thing there are some lovely places to visit.
