“Our stay in Berkeley”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

We stayed in Berkeley Lodge for two nights over the Whit weekend. We found it to be an excellent B&B. It was spotlessly clean, tastefuly decorated, and extremely comfortable. It had excellent showers, very comfortable beds, and was very quiet. The breakfast was very generous and well prepared. The landlady was very welcoming, friendly, and helpful. We found the prices to be very reasonable- in fact it was excellent value in every way. This B&B had everything you could possibly ask for in a B&B. I would highly recommend this B&B and would most definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: There is no swimming pool. I could not undo the error.

I had the pleasure of staying at Berkeley Lodge for two nights last weekend while visiting Adare for a wedding. We stayed in a well appointed room with en-suite which was very comfortable as well as incredibly clean and tidy. Berkeley Lodge is located right in the heart of Adare and is situated within 2 mins walking distance of some lovely local restaurants and pubs.The Proprietress, Bridie Herlihy, is extremely hospitable and a great source of local information. Bridie was particularly obliging when she heard that I would not have time to have breakfast due to a hairdressers appointment in Limerick, she insisted on making me a bacon sandwich to eat later, which I was very grateful for :) She also very kindly drove me to Adare Manor to collect the car the next day. Thanks again Bridie!

We learned of this place from Eileen Collins, who owns a B&B in Dingle. She told us that Bridie Herlihy (best Irish name ever) had a very nice place, and she was right. Every room is beautiful...we saw them all. Spacious, decorated with attention to detail. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was great, location is a 2 minute walk from everything. Bridie herself is as nice as she can be. I would definately stay there again.

Room Tip: As I said, we saw all the rooms. I think you cannot go wrong with any of them We stayed in the roo...

If you are looking for a great B&B in Adare, look no further. Berkeley Lodge is perfection. It's right in the heart of Adare on Station Road - less than a two minute walk to dining and shops. The beds are diving and Bridie, the inn keeper, is delightful. She took such good care of my family. We've stayed at several places in Adare over the years. Berkeley Lodge is far and away the best.

We had yet another super stay in this magnificant home! The food was excellent, the proprietor was fantastic with our 2yo and we had a job leaving. The cleanliness and hygeine was second to none so we will definately keep this as our number one destination in Adare.

Very pleasant overnight stay as a stop recommended by a local in preference to finding accommodation in nearby Limerick. Comfortable upstairs room in a quieter street off busy main road. Walking distance to historic sights, pubs and eating. Great breakfast in very nicely appointed breakfast room with very nice china and friendly service.
