Brook Lane Hotel Review

This small hotel may look like a traditional two-story stone building, with pointed gables and bay windows, but in fact it is an Irish-style "boutique" hotel—a product of the economic boom years. Located about a mile outside the village on the road to Sneem, the welcome here is lively, thanks to the bright abstract art on the walls and bold, striking color schemes, an interesting contrast to the Victorian-style furniture and heavy brocade curtains. Pluses include super-king-size beds, heaps of soft pillows, and bathrooms with underfloor heating. A rustic bistro and bar are complemented at busy times by a more formal restaurant.
