“A must stay in Adare”
Reviewed 17 July 2013

This beautiful bed and breakfast hosts a top quality in all aspects. Situated in the centre of Adare on a quiet street, the rooms are bright, cosy and will ensure a peaceful nights sleep. The breakfast menu caters for all; the full irish to poached eggs with smoked salmon, and while you wait there is fresh fruit, yogurt and juices. Overall this B&B is fantastic, whether it is for a night, a weekend away or a weeks base on your holiday or work, this is where you would and should want to stay.

Just completed a four night stay with Bridie at Berkely Lodge. Location was perfect for our day tripping to Ring of Kerry, Dingle, Cliffs of Mohar and much more. Bridie has made her home very inviting and comfortable. She is full of knowledge and sent us off each day after a great breakfast and chat. Beds were comfortable, the rooms nicely appointed with ensuite bathrooms. We would highly recommend Berkeley Lodge for a week- end, overnight, or longer stay.

I had to cancel my travel plans due to a medical emergency. Bridie was very gracious and understanding and I appreciate that so much. I will book with her when I reschedule my trip. Not all proprietors would be so understanding!

We enjoyed our stay here very much. Our hostess was very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was excellent. The Lodge is located just a short walk from the village and near a river walk that makes a pleasant stroll into town via the abbey. We cannot think of a single negative about our stay here.

We found Bridie to be very hospitable and welcoming. Our room on the ground floor was very comfortable with a large window looking out onto many colourful flowers. Bridie was very informative with local knowledge - places to see and where to eat in Adare. Berkeley Lodge is well situated as it is a short walk into town for shopping, eating and sightseeing.

This lovely b and b in Adare was the best. My friend and I arrived early from the airport and Bridie let us check in early. Our room was wonderful, very cheerful. The bathroom was immaculate. The room had a huge window that looked out onto the yard and flowers. It was extremely comfortable. Bridie made us feel very much at home. The breakfasts were delicious. It is quiet and I slept well.
She had suggestions for dinner in town that were very good. The walk into town was less than 10 minutes, the Heritage Center is close by as is a bank with an ATM. There is a lovely River Walk close by. I can't say enough about this accommodation. I would return here and will be telling friends that are going to Ireland about Bridie and her b and b. It was like being at home, so comfortable.

Room Tip: I had a room with a double and single which was great. It was downstairs and was large and comfy.

Bridie was very gracious and so helpful regarding Adare and the B and B was close to everything. She gave us great tips on where to eat and where the entertainment could be found, even suggested a great walking path that wound around to the thatched cottages that turned out to be a wonderful highlight of our evening. Great conversation at breakfast, where she worked around our schedule. The rooms were very clean and cozy. Wifi worked great and the whole home was welcoming. Bridie took the time to talk to us about Ireland, the climate, the agriculture, it was nice to have her spend time to educate us on Ireland. She went out of her way to fix us a fabulous breakfast complete with one of my husbands favorites, the bread pudding! The easy access to the b and b and a short walk into town. Would definitely stay again and would recommend it to anyone.
