“Irish hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013

Warm Irish greeting from owner Bridie was my introduction to this lovely B&B. Spotlessly clean bedroom with ironed linen on the beds plus plenty of hot water in the shower. Varied breakfast menu with tasty oatmeal served with local honey.
Very close to the village and off street parking.

The Berkeley Lodge is located in Adare, a lovely town situated a short drive from Shannon, perfect after an all night flight The Berkeley is clean, warm and comfortable, a short walking walking distance to the sights and offers a terrific breakfast. We especially appreciated being able to arrive early and take a nap after our all night transatlantic flight.

We recommend it highly!

Room Tip: Our room was a bit small but fully adequate. For more than one night's stay, I'd ask for a...

Where we had accidentally double booked, Bridie went out of her way not only to help us but to also make sure that her fellow neighbour's B&B was not left short. A host where no request or need was left wanting. A hearty breakfast to set you up for the day.

My wife and I spent two wonderful nights with our excellent host Bridie in Berkeley Lodge B&B in Adare,the food was first class,especially the whiskey porridge,the room was very comfortable and our host Bridie could not do enough for us.
Pat Collins's bar was recommended for both food and Music,it did not disappoint and the Guinness was also good. We met an old fella called Sean Mc Ginnis and he entertained us for the two days that we were there.

Room Tip: All the rooms are of an excellent standard.

Very good B&B with a very gracious host. Laundromat was closed for two days due to Bank holiday. Bridie very generously offered to do a load and hang it out since it was a nice sunny day. Came back from dinner to find the clothes folded neatly on the bed. Great location, close to pubs and restaurants.

As our first stop in Ireland, this delightful B&B set the tone for the rest of our journey. Our room was perfect, bright and cheery. After long days of exploring, we always looked forward to returning to such a clean and welcoming establishment. We would have been completely content with having a wonderful room; however, we were truly won over by the owner, Bridie. She went above and beyond our entire stay to make sure we were not only comfortable, but prepared for our day trips. She helped with maps and directions, along with providing one of the best breakfasts possible. As we continued on our journey throughout Europe, we always wished we were back in Adare, enjoying Bridie's hospitality. There is not enough that can be said to recommend Berkeley Lodge and the quaint Adare. ~Bec and Amy

Very nice B&B just off the mainstreet. Peacful spot with a friendly owner and very nicely kept house. Adare is a nice village with at least one good pub with live Irish folk music. Hope to be able to come back soon.
