Nice quiet hotel within walking distance of Kenmare town. The room we stayed in was lovely with very tasteful decor and quite a large bathroom. Although it did not have a kettle or coffee maker in the room you can ring reception and order it free of charge. We did that and it was delivered on a tray very quickly.... More

In our stay in Kenmare, we had a great experience staying at the Brook Lane Hotel. Una -- the manager -- apparently has a lifetime of experience in the hospitality industry, and is most highly regarded. Her front desk person Siobhan went out of her to accommodate our needs. Do not miss the Irish breakfast. Room in back was as... More

We were in the Kenmare area for a family wedding and many members of our family also stayed at the same time. I can wholeheartedly recommend the Brook Lane for anyone looking for a comfortable hotel stay with excellent... More

We have stayed in Kenmare plenty of times, sometimes with family and sometimes in one of the many local B&B's. On this occasion however we were celebrating our 12th Wedding Anniversary so decided to treat ourselves to a "luxury" room at the Brook Lane. To say we were disappointed on arrival was an understatement. We arrived 3.15 to find that... More

A very comfortable and well-maintained hotel, only five minutes' walk from central Kenmare on a protected pathway. Terrific breakfast many options and choices. I particularly enjoyed the unusual preparations of fruits, such as the rhubarb and the berry compote. The hotel has a lively bar and an excellent white-linen restaurant. Definitely worth a return visit!

We stayed one night in the brook lane. Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean. It didn't have tea/coffee making facilities but, even better, you just ring reception and they bring you a tray with tea or coffee and delicious homemade cookies... Staff are friendly and efficient. Breakfast was lovely, good choices. Siobhaun on reception was very welcoming. The hotel... More

Stayed here with my family just prior to the Kenmare Food Festival and found it to be a pleasant place to stay with warm friendly staff.
