“Great Hotel and would recommend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2013

We stayed one night in the Brook Lodge and definitely would have loved to have stayed longer. The owners are lovely and were very welcoming and helpful, the hotel is well decorated and the rooms are large, clean and comfortable. There is a lovely breakfast room and the food is great. The hotel is located in the centre of town so is an easy walk to the main street for shops, restaurants, etc. It is also well located for the Ring of Kerry. We had a great stay and would recommend!

We were welcomed by a very friendly staff and made to feel at home right away. The hotel is just a short walk from the shops and pubs of Killarney. At night the hotel is far enough removed from the street scene to be very quiet. The staff always made us feel so great and we had several fun and/or informative conversations with them. I would definitely stay at Brook Lodge again!

Room Tip: There are no elevators, so keep that in mind when booking. I have bad knees so having a room on the...

We stayed here on a room-only basis. We had to pay extra for an upgrade as we had been allocated a twin room (because I had requested a spacious room in the special requests section). Despite this leaving a bad taste in our mouths from the outset, our upgraded room was a delight. I loved the decor and the layout, though the duvets were quite thin and the room got chilly at times. The hotel was very quiet during our stay but I would probably stay here again/recommend the hotel if room prices were more competitive. Though we found that prices in Killarney generally were very high (which is beyond the remit of this review).

We were very pleased with our stay at Brook Lodge. It is in the heart of Killarney, a mere 2 minute walk to the main street of the town. The staff was very friendly and helpful, offered us an upgrade from a deluxe to a suite, and it was a very nice room. The breakfast was excellent, exactly what you expect traveling in Ireland. There are many hotels in Killarney, most are outside the downtown, but if you want to be located where you can 'easily' walk to town, this is a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Book this directly yourself, there are many options to choose from.

Recently travelling in Ireland my wife and i stayed at this hotel and were immediately made to feel welcome by the owner Mrs Counihan and staff. It was a tremendously satisfying experience staying there.
Excellently located for exploring Killarney and surrounding area. Set in its own grounds and a short walk to the town centre attractions and bars etc. The hotel is kept in pristine condition and the facilities will not disappoint. Full Irish breakfast as well as other choices eaten in the lovely restaurant setting us up for each day particularly for touring the Ring of Kerry etc.
Many thanks to the owners and staff and also to our son who booked this hotel in advance for us and found this "Gem".
We will certainly be staying here again in the future . Recommended !

This hotel is a newer place with a pleasant Best Western kind of ambience. Most remarkable was the willingness of front desk staff to offer directions to local attractions, store luggage for an entire day while we toured before departure, and call cabs and assist us long after we had checked out and the bill had been paid. Wonderful and polite people.
