Kenmare has a long and varied history dating from the stone circles adjacent to the town which dates from 2200 - 500 B.C. Kenmare, owned by the Lansdowne Family, became a model estate town in the 18th century, built to a distinctive X-pattern street plan, which is still clear today. There are many unique facts about the town including the very distinctive Kenmare lace. In fact the great art of lace making is still demonstrated in the Heritage Centre building, and antique Kenmare lace is on exhibition in the centre.
