“Full marks for Bridie”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

I only stayed one night but couldn't fault it. Bridie was wonderful, room delightful, breakfast of cinnamon toast and maple syrup delicious, everywhere spotlessly clean, fast free internet access and pleasant walk along river to cafes, restaurants and shops.

We read the reviews on trip advisor and wanted to stay somewhere outside of Limmerick so decided on Berkeley Lodge. What a great place Bridie has, we would highly recommend it to all. Adare is a beautiful town with lots of accommodation options but we would return to Bridie's. She helped us with the local knowledge and did some washing for us, which she did not have to do. The room we had was very clean and larger than normal with a good sized ensuite. Breakfast was good with all options up to full Irish Breakfast.

My sister and I just came home from an extended stay at Berkeley lodge. It was a wonderful place to stay and would suggest it to anyone. Bridie was very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was wonderful and the rooms are beautiful. Will stay again and suggest that my family and friends do the same!

The most pretty place I have ever stayed. Everything is so classic, and everything matches. Every bed has a cute stuffed animal. The service is excellent and good choices for brekfast. Superfast internet, where I watched live TV. Extremely clean!

Only downside beside the usual complain of the two-fosset system, and only 3 Irish TV channles is, that there were allmost no waterpressure in the shower. The walls are paperthin, but when we were there, the guests was quiet.

This is details, in a great B and B. The place is very central and lots of space for carparking.

We spent a few days in Co. Limerick and were at the Berkeley Lodge, where we found a warm welcome and excellent service. The room was always well-kept and for breakfast more than enough to choose and relish.

Bridie operates a very well presented, excellent value accommodation in her B& B establishment in Adare, Ireland. We spent three nights at Berkeley Lodge and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The room was bright and faultlessly clean, our hostess was most helpful in sourcing local services and facilities and the breakfasts were beautifully presented. We have no hesitation in recommending Bekeley Lodge to visitors.

I stayed at the Berkeley Lodge last night on the advice of tripadvisor reviews and right they were.
Bridie was a lovely hostess. My room was spacious, well appointed and very clean. If you go left out of the lodge it is a 2 minute walk into town or turn right and after 100 yards or so you can walk along the river and come out on the other side of town. Bridie was able to recommend several pubs/restaurants for good food and drink. Excellent breakfast with coffee/tea available in room as well. All and all a lovely experience and the price was right!
