The Experience

Brook Lane still shines in its olive green wrapper, set back from the road and proclaiming itself (on a pink sign) Kenmare’s ‘first luxury hotel’. While the furnishings are new, the welcome is traditionally Irish, instantly putting you at ease. The staff make this place, and guests return for good banter and good food in the modern bistro, or the more upmarket dining room. Wherever you eat, it will be local or organic, matched by eco-friendly wines and occasionally served to a background of piano or viola tunes. Breakfast is wonderfully laid-back (you can wander down at 11 o’clock and listen to Irish radio as you eat) and delicious; porridge with whiskey, the full Irish, fresh fish every morning. Elsewhere, rooms are modern and sumptuous, with funky art, dark fabrics and duck down pillows. There’s a library stacked with books, lounges with statement wallpaper and open fires, chandeliers, mirrored lamps and beautifully hand-crafted furniture. This is a bold new place, run by a down-to-earth young couple and their lovely team; they’ll even dry your clothes on your return from the Ring of Kerry’s finest walks.

Our first trip to this hotel and what a beautiful place it is. The decor is fresh & stylish. We were greeted by the owner, Una, and she checked us in but then escorted us to our rooms, a great personal touch. The rooms are large & airy with very nice decor. The beds are amazing & not too soft nor too firm. Damien in the bar entertained us perfectly even when 2 guests went behind his bar to help themselves to tea & coffee. He was the consummate professional in the way he dealt with it. In summary, warm, inviting, friendly & breakfast menu varied and filling. We can't wait to return, thank u

Brook Lane is a very comfortable base from which to explore the Ring of Kerry, Killarney National Park, the Beara Peninsula and more. I had a deep night's sleep in a firm, high bed and the breakfast of champions the next day with produce straight from their own local farm. With regular live music in the bar, this family-run hotel is a very friendly, comfortable and well-located choice.

Kerry, Sawday's inspector

Another brilliant Sawday recommendation. Staff couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. Excellent dinner. Homemade bread and tapenade. Just 10 minutes walk from town. We stayed just one night but would definitely return
