Kenmare The Essential
Surrounded by a mountainous cirque, this charming market town stands on the estuary of the Roughty, Finihy and Sheen Rivers, which widen into the Kenmare River. The town centre is laid out around two shopping streets. The tourist office building is home to the Kenmare Heritage Centre and the Lace and Design Centre, which exhibits pieces of Kenmare lace. From the main square, Market Street leads to the Stone Circle, a circle of 15 monoliths dating from the Bronze Age.
