“More like a BnB”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

This hotel is located just off the main strip so it is quiet yet has easy walking access to the town (one block over). The hotel staff could not have been more friendly. We called for directions as we made a wrong turn. The room was pleasant, the bathroom clean with a good shower, and the bed was comfortable. We went out for dinner and came back and starting speaking with Patrick at the desk. Such a pleasant man and he offered some great advice for trip around the Ring of Kerry the next day. We had an equipment malfunction and in the morning the owner was in and helped fix the problem. He didn't need to but we were certainly glad he offered and had the necessary tools. They had a nice breakfast available. I said it was more like a Bed n Breakfast because everyone so friendly, they made you feel like it was a home. Also, very good wifi that was free :)

US Travelers: Just a friendly reminder, there is no air conditioning. It is typically not needed. We left the windows open all night and did not encounter any issues. No hair dryer either - again typical so be prepared.

Just returned from our golf trip to Ireland, our group of 12 stayed 3 nights at the Brook Lodge Hotel and we had a wonderful stay, everyone loved the hotel, its staff and location.

It sits in a perfect location just one block from the restaurants and pubs in town yet it is very quiet.

The staff could not do enough for us and took great care including making dinner reservations , drying clothes etc.
Patrick who worked the night shift was especially gracious and accommodating and was a wonderful host to our group especially taking care of Mr Jones ! Hope we get to bring back the group for a visit and bring Mr Jones along to see Patrick again.

Thank you all so much.

My daughter and I stayed at the Brook Lodge Hotel in Killarney for two nights during a recent vacation in June. The hotel is just off the main street but in a nice quiet location. Actually it is only steps away from all the pubs and restaurants but not close enough for the noise. The hotel room was beautifully decorated, extremely clean, the beds were very comfortable AND the bathroom was one of the largest we experience. All the hotel staff were very friendly and quite helpful in answering our questions. The full Irish breakfast was delicious.
This is not a big hotel and hotel and that is what contributes to its charm. The garden outside was in full bloom and very well kept.
I couldn't say enough for our experience. It is definitely a good value and the service was even higher than that. Would recommend this to friends and I would want to stay here on any return visits to Killarney.
Thank you to all the staff for being so warm and welcoming.

I stayed here for the Ring of Kerry Charity cycle. It was a fantastic base right in the town within walking distance of bars and resturants, but in a very quiet location.
I called to enquire about parking( the is plenty) before I set off and while I was on the phone they asked about any other needs I had.
We were greeted by friendly staff who offered assistance and advice for our needs.
There is a very homly feel to the place with a seated area beside reception and a fire and television like youe sitting room.
The room was exceptionally large clean and comfortable with Tea/coffee making facilities, Iron and hair dryer(god be with the days when I had hair) The ensuite bathroom was also on the generous size with bath/ shower.
Breakfast was of good quality with a choice which that I would expect.
I shall be returning for the 2015 edition of the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle. Keep up the good work

The location is perfect, just off the main streets of Killarney. Breakfast at the lodge was delicious and the rates were very reasonable. I have stayed at Trump resorts with excellent service, but the staff at the Brook Lodge were a delight. Would stay again and again!!

Beautiful gardens, comfortable room, delicious breakfast and friendly helpful staff. The furnishings and decor are beautiful. I particularly liked the sweeping staircase. Don't come here if you want modern because the Brook Lodge isn't - but it is very comfortable and offers a tranquil environment but is only 3 minutes walk from the busy town centre. The wifi was very fast, the only negative was the TV in the room wasn't very good.

My wife and I stayed at Brook Lodge during a May 2014 trip to Ireland. We had stayed there last year and had to go back because it is the best hotel we have visited in Ireland. The entire property, including the staff, are top notch. We were welcomed in on arrival and throughout the two night stay, we felt as though we were the only guests because we were treated so well. We are already planning our next Ireland trip and will include Brook Lodge in our plans for certain.
