“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Friendly staff, great welcome, attentive throughout our 2 night stay. Dealt with any issue immediately. Recommended restaurants in the town, which turned out very well. Room comfortable and well appointed, restaurant pleasant, with excellent breakfast and very acceptable and reasonable dinner menu. Location perfect for exploring Rings of Kerry and Beara (we preferred the latter). Would re-book in a heartbeat. Perfect advert for Ireland in every respect.

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room, but I think they are nearly all located in good positions.

We stayed for six nights early June at this top class hotel with very helpful, smiling and extremely well trained staff committed to giving an excellent service. Food both breakfast and dinner was plentiful, varied, beautifully cooked and of a high standard generally. Rooms are well furnished, very comfortable and beautifully clean. And the bonus - tea/coffee and home made biscuits delivered to your room amazingly at any time day or night at no extra charge. Didn't want to leave!

Stayed with them on the 6/16-6/17. Siobhaun and Una were very helpful directing us on where to visit on our daily drives along the Beara Peninsula and the Ring of Kerry but also where to go to eat and drink in Kenmare. They could not have been nicer. The rooms were great and i would definitely stay there again.

We just completed a 12 day tour of Ireland with another couple, and can honestly say our stay at Brook Lane Hotel was one of our favorites. Although the location looks removed from town, it is just a 5 minute walk to town along a nice path without vehicle traffic. The room was very comfortable, yet the staff was what made the place. Owner Una B. was on site and provided extremely helpful information on not only the Kenmare area, but of all of Ireland. Siobhaun and other staff were also extremely helpful and took wonderful care of us. We heard low-key traditional Irish music one evening after dinner that was remarkable. Best breakfast buffet during the entire trip. We hope we get to go back soon.

Room Tip: Trust your friends who have been there before.

My photo tour group recently stayed at this hotel. It was lovely - the rooms were well-appointed, the food in the restaurant was delicious, and the staff very accommodating. We will definitely use them again.

We stayed at Brook Lane as part of a walking tour with Vermont Biking Tours. It is a wonderful place, and we were well taken care of. The room was very comfortable, the breakfasts were amazingly delicious, and the staff was very helpful and friendly. I loved the location. We were so close to the town and the Kerry Way. Perfect spot!

We were in Kenmare for a wedding, and decided to stay in the Brook Lane Hotel. The staff were incredibly helpful. We inquired about getting a taxi to the wedding venue, but the staff insisted on driving us over themselves, which was a big help! I was really, really impressed with the level of service. The rooms themselves were lovely and very clean.
