We enjoyed a dinner at the Brooks Restaurant to celebrate our 30th anniversary trip while staying at the beautiful manor home, Ballygarry House. The food was fabulous, the dinner was served with care allowing time between each course. We had two wonderful surprises, the first was a special treat from the chef of a new appetizer - he sent it to us and asked for our feedback and it was delicious! The second surprise was writing "Happy 30th Anniversary" on both of our desserts - how sweet, thoughtful and nice! The service was excellent, the food was delicious and we have memories we will treasure forever! Thank you!!!

What a great meal. My wife and I had dinner this evening at Brooks at the Ballygarry House Hotel in Tralee. From the appetizer through to the main course everything was superb. The chef sent out a totellini with a garlic cream sauce. If it was on the menu as an entree I would have ordered it. I had the sirloin. It was cooked perfectly. My wife had the baked hake. She said it was the best she had ever had.
We highly recommend this restaurant for a nice evening out when in the Tralee area.

A place I will return again and again,
The staff is on the ball, even when very busy they keep their attention to you…
The food is excellent quality and cooked beautifully, wide choice.
The ambiance is cosy & intimate.
Enjoy a stroll in the garden after dinner or chill in the lobby's cosy sofas…

Having dined in brooks restaurant on numerous occasions I knew what to expect excellent food, excellent service and very friendly staff. We wanted to do something different so when I saw that they were having a seafood speciality night we were very excited. Oh my god it was above our expectations. The food was delicious, we enjoyed every minute. It was a fantastic night and we are looking forward to the next speciality night.
