We can’t recommend the Brook Lane Hotel highly enough as a wedding venue. The standard of the food was out of this world and all of our guests gave amazing feedback about the meal. The function room provided a beautiful intimate atmosphere. The staff were great to deal with, in particular Pat, Una and Siobhaun who made the whole planning process so easy as they took care of every detail. We had an amazing day and the Brook Lane and its staff played a huge part in making it perfect.

Small enough to be cosy and guests are made to feel at home. Rooms are beautiful and the breakfast is exceptional. The staff will advise on drives and walks that are really beautiful. The food is excellent and cups of tea are available free and on demand.

Room Tip: Don't think there is a bad room

Just back from another lovely few days at the Brook Lane and cant wait to go back. We were upgraded to the suite which is spacious and so so comfortable - a huge bed with crisp white linen, a lovely seating area and a very roomy walk in wardrobe.Even so we still found time to sit down stairs by the log fire with an irish coffee or two.
We ate in Caseys bar and the food was so good - particularly recommend the halibut which was so fresh and beautifully cooked - just perfect.
As another reviewer said breakfast in the Brook Lane is amazing - the buffet is full of fresh local produce and there is so much choice and that's before the cooked breakfast. Have to say a special thank you to Esther who makes really good breakfasts - everything cooked to perfection.
The team at the Brook Lane are just amazing working so hard to make you feel welcome and that nothing is too much trouble. Thanks so much.

While visiting my husband's family in Limerick, we took a quick 2 day trip to Kenmare and stayed at the Brook Lane Hotel. We stayed in a large suite--very roomy with a walk in closet, large bathroom, king bed and gas fireplace and a balcony. It was decorated very nicely and the bed was very comfy. It's a warm comfortable place that feels more like a large B&B than a hotel. It's conveniently situated--just a quick walk up a path into town. The first night we were there, we had a really enjoyable dinner at the hotel restaurant. Breakfast in the morning was equally delicious-lots to choose from.
Two quirky things about the room- the fireplace didn't work and as well the tub spa didn't work. The staff were all incredibly friendly and accommodating. While checking out, Una had asked how everything was and we mentioned about the fp and spa--she was extremely apologetic and immediately took money off the bill--it was very thoughtful of her to do that and we were very appreciative for it.
Next time we're in Kenmare, we will definitely come back to the Brook Lane!

We try to visit Ireland at least once every year and, whenever we are in the areas of Co. Cork we always try to fit in a visit to Brook Lane Hotel in Kenmare. We have never been disappointed whenever we have stayed here. The rooms are extremely comfortable and the staff are just great. Every evening we make sure that we eat in. The bar and have always enjoyed great food and a warm and friendly atmosphere. Well worth a visit, believe me!

We arrived in the midst of a torrential rain storm, so were unable to enjoy the town itself. We therefore opted to eat dinner at the hotel and get to bed early. The food was fresh, servers were polite. Our room was very nice, clean, large. Breakfast in the morning was really the jewel in this crown. A sumptuous buffet in addition to specialty items off the menu were included in our price. This location is really ideal to begin the Ring of Kerry. The staff took the extra initiative to make sure the weather outlook would make for favorable driving/touring conditions- something I really appreciated.
