The Towers Hotel
The Towers Hotel offers cosy and comfortable accommodation in the scenic location of Glenbeigh, Co Kerry. After a busy day, return to freshen up at the hotel and, if energy levels permit, enjoy a relaxing early evening stroll on Rossbeigh Beach, just a mere five-minute drive away, returning in time for pre-dinner drinks in the hotel bar. In the summer months, dine outside on the Terrace and choose from both the Curra Restaurant or the Old Bar menus, enjoying your meal with a glass of wine while watching a stunningly beautiful sunset. A good night’s rest awaits you: the hotel’s bedrooms are decorated in a chic and elegant style, with every comfort for the weary traveller.
The Towers Hotel offers something a little different: standing proud for well over a century in its eye-catching position at the heart of the village, it is one of only three listed buildings in Glenbeigh. It retains many of its original Victorian features such as sash windows, wooden window panels and decorative plaster cornicing. Being situated right on the Ring of Kerry, it has enjoyed the patronage of many famous names over the years including Omar Sharif, Charlie Chaplin and Charles De Gaulle. Some stayed longer than others, notably Irish artist Marshall Hutson who, in the late 1960s and early 1970s, painted works for the hotel as payment for his residency. Two large pieces, ‘The Poitín Makers’ and ‘The Poitín Drinkers’, adorn the Lounge Bar while ‘The Shandon Belles’ can be seen at Reception. There are other watercolours throughout the hotel by Marshall Hutson as well as furniture he designed.
In addition to providing a superb base for a holiday in the Reeks District, the Towers Hotel, with its village location set in beautiful surroundings, also makes a wonderful wedding venue. For an added touch of romance, the bride and groom have the option of exchanging their vows in the intimate setting of the Little Belfry Chapel, just a short distance from the hotel. Please get in touch with the hotel’s friendly and helpful staff who would be delighted to assist you in planning your special day.
