While there is no place like home, people who live in hotels are far less likely to get their hands stuck in cookie jars or their heads stuck in cat flaps. Avoid domicile difficulties with today’s Groupon: €76 for one night bed and breakfast for two, with tea and handmade cakes and late check out at Brook Lane Hotel.
A four star resort in the Heritage Town of Kenmare, Brook Lane Hotel is a veritable palace for the discerning snoozer. Cradled in the tranquil loveliness of Kenmare Bay, the Brook Lane is ideally placed for an array of experiences, from fishing to nature walks, horse riding to seal cruising. The hotel is also a golfing haven, and visitors can take a swing at any of the forty three courses in the area, including the Kerry Golf and Fishing Club - home to the 2010 and 2011 Irish Open. Guests angling for variety are spoilt for choice with local attractions ranging from Star Outdoors Adventure centre for boating, to the tasty Lorge Chocolate Factory.
Weary wanderers can lay their heads on a superior pillow in one of Brook Lane Hotel’s bountiful bedchambers. If a full Irish breakfast isn’t quite enough edible goodness, tea and homemade cakes will be on hand for the extra peckish. With a late checkout of 2pm, there is plenty of time for appreciators of exquisite scenery and village hospitality to explore Kenmare’s lashings of both.
Brook Lane Hotel is rated 9.1/10 on Booking.com and TripAdvisors awarded it 4.5/5. Guests sung praise for the comfortable rooms, friendly staff and hearty breakfasts. There was also a special mention made of nice walking paths into the old town.
After a sound sleep, we very much enjoyed the hotel breakfast, characterized by a nice spread of the usual cold choices (breads, cereals), and a full menu of hot choices including porridge with assorted accompaniments such as honey and cream (my wife's choice) or Bailey's Irish Cream (my choice)...we both opted for the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon en croute....WOW!

You need a place to relax in? There is no better place than the Brook Lane, kenmare where rooms are extremely comfortable and well appointed. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. It is an Irish hotel with Irish staff who offer a typical Irish welcome and a breakfast to die for...highly recommend it.
