Modern and super clean B&B. Alan and Karen are the perfect hosts, very welcoming, informative on the area and considerate. Breakfast is lovely and Karen makes awesome pancakes (upon request)! Walking distance to the village and beach. Will definitely recommend it!

Once again Karen and Alan have created such a welcome and friendly atmosphere- we love coming here- so much that this was our 6th visit, we cannot recommend Brookside highly enough. A real family feel, also Dunmore East is a lovely spot and well worth a visit.

We spent 7 nights in this top class B&B while visiting relatives in May 15. The greeting from Karen, waiting at the doorway as we arrived, was very welcoming and made us feel at home straight away. We were offered the choice of 2 rooms both of which were immaculately clean with spotless en suites which made it difficult to... More

Karen's welcome was a great introduction to B&B's in Ireland. Great food, information on the area provided. Would highly recommend this B&B! Beautiful waterfront & great restaurants to discover. Carol & Bruce

We have just left Brookside, and enjoyed our short stay immensely. Karen & Alan were very welcoming; the room was excellent, and the rooms were kept superbly clean. We would fully recommend Brookside to anyone staying in the East Dunmore area.

We loved the beautiful drive to this B&B and then we were met at the door by this lovely lady and her husband. Karen and Alan were attentive and ready to help us get into our rooms and then tell us a little about the place. The home is so nice and very clean and we felt safe and comfortable... More

As usual we started our holiday here - ostensibly for one night as we have been doing over the years. Unfortunately I was taken quite ill and Karen and Alan were fantastic - their care and understanding, not only for me during my hospital stay - but also for my partner who had to stay at Brookside for the whole...

We recently stayed in Karen's B+B for a night. It is located a 5 minute walk from the town centre and is quite easy to find. From the moment we arrived Karen was hospitable and friendly. She gave great advice on where to eat and what local pubs would have live music that evening......even phoning around to find out on... More

Stayed at Brookside for one night and were made to feel very welcome by Karen. She couldn't have done more for us. Room was lovely and clean and breakfast was excellent. Would have no hesitation in recommending.
