The staff and meal were exceptional. The food was perfectly cooked. The rooms are very nice and quite large for Ireland. This was by far the nicest property we stayed at in Ireland. Una and her staff are exceptional.

The staff at this hotel are very warm and friendly. The bar food is fantastic - both my husband and me felt our meals were just perfect. The bedrooms and bathroom are lovely and very spacious. We did raise one problem and the attitude of the staff was excellent. It is only a five minute walk to Kenmare town by a lane that takes you away from the bustle of the main road.

And that is the real thing that let's this hotel down from a five star to a four star. You are on top of the main road and there is no place to sit outside and enjoy a view. Even if they could put up a decking area that sectioned you off from the road - it might help. It was a beautiful warm evening and we could not really enjoy our drink outside.

However, this may not bother other people - it's just that we like to enjoy summer evenings. I would happily stay in this hotel again but maybe more in the autumn or winter.

I couldn't fault this hotel. The staff are more than accommodating and the hotel is in a prime location with a pleasant, short stroll to town. We stayed at Brook Lane for two nights. Great memories. Thank you.

Overall a good hotel with nice location, parking and breakfasts. However, in the summer if yo face the front of the hotel and have to open a window it is VERY noisy with car traffic until early morning. No air conditioning in the hotel. If you close the widow it is fine, but open means little sleep. We moved on after 2 nights.

Room Tip: Away from the road at all costs.

I don't know where to start with how great this hotel is.
I have stayed here quite a few times over the past year when visiting Kenmare and I simply can not wait to return! Una and her staff are absolutely exceptional hosts, they simply couldn't do more to help you. I mean nothing is too much for them. They do it all with a laid back easygoing nature that just makes you feel so at home. I recently got married in the area and all our guests stayed here too. The food here is just fantastic and the little touches like complimentary tea and coffee and great choice of breakfast are what its all about.They have a fantastic suite and a wonderful apartment too so be sure to check them out.
It really is my favourite hotel ever , they are doing it so right here. I have stayed in many hotels and have never left a review on trip advisor but I really can't give this hotel enough praise. They are the most helpful wonderful crew and I can't wait to come back.

Thank you so much to everyone in Brooklane for being so amazing!!

This conveniently located hotel was everything we expected, based on reviews. the staff was so friendly, the hotel was neat, clean and very comfortable, as was our room. All requests were responded to immediately. Breakfast was lovely and a meal in the restaurant was very tasty.

As you drive through town, the hotel seems further out, but we were directed to a beautiful walk that is a short cut to town, making it very easy to get into town. Walking was perfect, because this charming town has less parking than demand for it.

We had family nearby in a rented home, but no address, just a house name and unable to reach them by phone or internet. Everyone was so helpful in assisting us in locating the house, even going so far as to make phone calls to assist us. This was truly above and beyond and very much appreciated.

Room Tip: Our room on the first floor was great and quiet despite facing N21, but we have no insight into othe...

This place is simply wonderful. From the moment you arrive, you know you picked the right place. Meticulously maintained, new furnishings throughout the hotel, comfortable rooms and modern bathrooms. Breakfast is wonderful, and bountiful. Any request for something not on the menu is happy made for you.

Staff is exceptionally friendly, helpful and engaging.

Great location, 4 minute walk to the center of Kenmare.

For all its modern amenities, it still maintains a wonderful, warm, Irish charm
