Really enjoyed staying here. Food was *really* good at the restaurant (I had a gourmet fish and chips - three kinds of fish, including salmon, fab chips and mushy peas) ... only wish I had enough room for dessert! The rooms were brilliant - warm, comfortable, big, spotlessly clean and welcoming. The beds were blissful. The location is great (only a few minutes walk from the centre of Kenmare without being right in the middle of the bustle). But the best thing about the hotel was the staff - so lovely, ready for a bit of a craic, kind, welcoming, and generous. We came in on a cold night, and they offered us a cup of tea and a slice of warm pie (with a dollop of heavy cream) by the open fire. They never charged us for this bit of kindness, and that special touch made this place absolutely wonderful. Breakfast was a bit of a struggle - but we arrived very early and things hadnt quite geared up yet. Though I just loved the hot porridge with cream and honey. Superb.

We arrived in Kenmare without a reservation and chose Brook Lane based on TripAdvisor reviews. (We drove by the Coachmans Townhouse first and didn't like the look of it.) Very welcoming lady at the front desk gave us a lovely warm room. It was a large, very nicely furnished room, big bathroom with underfloor heating, bathrobes, slippers. One disappointment was that the sheets and towels were very rough - seemed they needed a good dose of fabric softener! IBreakfast was quite good - very good fruit compote and stewed rhubarb and the eggs were delicious. Unfortunately the room that breakfast was served in was very cold which spoiled my enjoyment of the food. Admittedly it was a very cold day, but that was a shame. If we were visiting the area again, we'd be happy to stay there again.

Having made the decsion to get married in Ireland (my wife is Irish) but living in Australia it was a bit of a worry picking a hotel for a wedding reception and guest accommodation without first visiting the hotel !!!

The Brook Lane Hotel is in a fantastic location and a great find. The food and the reception was just amazing. Many guests (who had travelled from Australia, UK, France, Germany and of course Ireland) commented that it was the best food that they had received at a wedding reception and to be honest l could not disagree with them. Just excellent !!!!

The rooms in the hotel are of a very high standard and are well looked after. The staff are most attentaive to your needs. In fact at one stage l saw the owner of the hotel helping the waiting staff delivery food and pouring the wedding guests drinks etc.

Highly recommneded !!!

Hotel is located just a short walk (4/5 minutes) from Kenmare. Staff are friendly and they have an airing room which is great for hikers.
