Brimmer Hall Estate is a working plantation established in 1817 in the Ocho Rios area of Jamaica. Our visit to the plantation was part of a Royal Caribbean excursion. It took about two hours to reach the Estate from the port. Along the way, we learned a lot about Jamaica and got to see firsthand how true Jamaicans live. The... More

We made our own way there in a hire car and it was not well signposted from the main road. The house is lovely but we would have welcomed someone to show us around and answer our questions. Although there were just the two of us, they were happy to drive us around in a jitney and we got the... More

Let's start with the bad news. Yes the visitor facilities are run down and shabby, the only things available are the jitney tour and the house. The good news is that they alone are worth the trip. It's a working estate which means you see different crops which are explained to you, you get to sample them - fresh coconut... More

This was part of a cruise tour. It gave an interesting view of the real Jamaica on the way out to the farm, but would agree with one of the other posters they don't spend anything on upkeep. The road was practically washed out so our bus couldn't get up the drive. The tour was interesting, but there seemed to... More

The trip to Brimmer Hall was part of the excursion package for our Falmouth, Jamaica port of call. We booked this with Royal Caribbean during our Allure of the Seas Western Caribbean cruise last May. The travel from the port to this estate took 2.5 hours and upon reaching the estate where we expected have a taste of the typical... More

This plantation saw better days years ago - it's apparent that someone collects admission fees but doesn't spend money to maintain it. The place was filthy and trashstrewn. There wasn't anything appealing about this place. Jamaica could have a jewel here but until it's cleaned up, they would do well to remove this place to encourage tourism.

This is a wonderful spot to spend an afternoon. The people who work there are wonderful. The best time to visit is in the afternoon when there are not alot of cruise ship tours. The guides are more relaxed and have time to spend with you. Grab an extra bottle of Appelton rum in the shops before the tour, and... More

My husband and I visited Brimmer Hall Estates on 5/14/06 via CC Triumph. It was not one of those touristy tours for sure! We traveled several miles from the port through various towns and it gives you a view of the "Real" Jamaica. The plantation is really beautiful and the guides are very knowledgable, but it was hard to understand... More
