“A most enjoyable stay.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014

On a recent trip we had the good fortune to stay 2 nights at the Brook Lane Hotel. It certainly ranks at one of our favourite hotels during our travels in beautiful Ireland. It is extremely well run and with an excellent staff. Our favourite was Mandy who got us organized to drive the ring of Beara, while she was busy serving breakfast for everybody. As far as I could see, she didn't miss a beat! And everybody was served with a smile. Likewise we were most impressed with the hotel's bistro. It was just humming every night and yet everything ran smoothly and the food was delicious. The location of the hotel was great, easy to find, and just a very short walk from town. Our room was lovely and very comfortable. Also a very good bathroom.

Just returned from a weekend break in Kenmare. Stayed in the Brook Lane on a Saturday night. Friendly staff, room was as one would expect, clean and nicely decorated with a most comfortable bed. Breakfast was a buffet style with a great variety of cereals and fresh breads, plenty of homemade products on offer. Bar in the hotel could do with a makeover and was a little disappointed to hear that it hadn't a television as Spanish League decider was on and would have liked to have seen it. A small issue and one that didn't spoil my stay, would stay here again and would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

A group went for lunch here on what was a very busy day. First communion families seemed to have taken over. It made for great atmosphere in the place if one doesn't mind a lot of happy children and parents. Im sure it is not always as full with children for those that want a more relaxing hotel. Even though it was busy food was very good and service was excellent for such a day. Enjoyed our short stay and would recommend it .Would have liked to have checked out the rooms but maybe on our next trip to south Kerry.

I travelled Ireland solo and found this hotel to be the nicest and friendliest. The staff helped me plan out bits of my holiday and showed me the best places to go in town for entertainment. They had recently renovated and it was super nice and clean. One of the best hotels I stayed in during my month in Ireland!

The Brook Lane Hotel is definitely on the top of Kenmare's TripAdvisor rankings for a reason! All of the staff during our visit were exceptionally friendly, always ready to offer advice and directions to get you to what you wanted to see and do.

Siobhaun was especially helpful, walking us to our room personally when we arrived, allowing us to check in quite early after a brutal overnight flight from Boston, and even taking the time too set up a trip to Skellig Michael trip for us.

A fantastic breakfast that beat out every hotel we've stayed in thus far each morning makes this hotel hard to beat. It's a beautiful property that's ideally situated right outside the hustle and bustle of Kenmare, but an easy walk to town. You can't go wrong at the Brook Lane Hotel!

The brook lane is just beautiful. The decor of the room so tasteful and cosy. We also ate at the restaurant and it was delicious. The breakfast is made to order with such variety and also home baking. Will be returning soon.

We recently stayed two nights at Brook Lane and could not be happier with our choice. We booked a triple/family room, and it was beautifully decorated, spacious, and clean. The hotel felt cozy and personal, and we all agreed that the breakfasts were phenomenal. We weren't sure what to make of the just-outside-of-town location, but the walking path into town is very nice and well lit at night, and given the lovely full moon and beautiful weather we enjoyed, it was nice to walk a bit.

We were warmly welcomed and advised by Una, Siobhan, and the rest of the team. My son loved the little lounge area upstairs and the games and books provided there. Siobhan sat down and chatted with us well past the end of her day while my son and I had tea in the upstairs lounge (with delicious homemade cookies, I might add). She even offered my son the chance to take one of the kids' books home with him. They did a great job of arranging our dinner the second night at No. 35, where James was waiting for us after the call from Brook Lane.

My son called this his favorite hotel of all the places we stayed in Ireland, and we couldn't agree more. We only wish we could have stayed longer to explore more of the delights Kerry has to offer.
