The Bistro at the Kenmare Bay Hotel & Resort – A Culinary Gem

Nestled along the picturesque mountains of Kerry, the Bay Bistro at the Kenmare Bay Hotel & Resort has quickly become a beloved destination for food enthusiasts and casual diners alike. Offering a harmonious blend of modern culinary techniques and classic flavours, this charming eatery promises a dining experience that tantalizes the taste buds and warms the heart. From the moment you step into the Bay Bistro, you are greeted by a warm, inviting atmosphere. The interior design effortlessly combines rustic charm with contemporary elegance and our soft lighting, wooden accents, and nautical decor create a cozy yet sophisticated environment, making it an ideal spot for both intimate dinners and lively gatherings.
The Bay Bistro prides itself on a diverse menu that highlights the freshest local ingredients. The culinary team, led by Executive Head Chef Bobby O’ Donoghue has curated a selection of dishes that cater to a variety of palates while showcasing their culinary creativity.
Begin your culinary journey with one of the bistro’s exquisite starters. The Wild Atlantic Way Chowder is a must-try, featuring a selection of the freshest fish & prawns from our own doorstep, all served in a creamy white wine & fish velouté. For those seeking a lighter option, the Bluebell Falls Goats Cheese Salad offers an ensemble of golden fried breaded goats cheese on a bed of salad and pearl couscous and other divine vegetables.
The entree menu at the Bay Bistro is where the culinary team truly shines. The Indian buttered chicken is a standout, perfectly seasoned and served smothered in our creamy rich curry sauce atop a bed of basmati rice along with our homemade garlic & coriander naan. Meat lovers will revel in the Chargrilled beef burger, a tender, juicy beef patty paired with a selection of additional toppings on a toasted sourdough & rye bun.
Vegetarian and vegan options are also thoughtfully crafted. The ‘Not So Meaty’ Steak is a delightful twist on a classic, featuring an oven roasted cauliflower steak served with pistachios, pomegranate, roasted chickpeas and a chili honey dressing.
No meal at New Bay Bistro is complete without indulging in one of their decadent desserts. The Baby Guiness Cake is a favourite, with its succulent chocolate sponge cake topped with a coffee and baileys mousse, accompanied by a scoop of cookie dough ice cream. For a lighter yet equally satisfying treat, the Pineapple & Coconut Trifle offers a perfect balance of creamy and fruity flavours.
The bistro’s beverage menu is as impressive as its food offerings. The Wine List boasts an extensive selection of both local and international wines, carefully curated to complement the menu. For cocktail enthusiasts, the Signature Cocktails are a delight. The Kenmare Bay Sunset, a refreshing mix of vodka, peach schnapps, grenadine, orange and cranberry juice, is perfect for sipping while enjoying ambience.
