Fodor's Expert Review Brook Manor Lodge
Fenit Rd. (R558), Tralee, Co. Kerry, Ireland
Set against a dramatic backdrop of the Slieve Mish Mountain, this large double-gable country house is a nice option, both as a touring base and for avoiding Tralee's notoriously snarled-up traffic and late-night noise. Found 2 km (1 mile) from the town center on the Fenit Road (R558), it has young owner-managers, Sandra and Jerome Lordan, who are a fount of touring information. Guest rooms are large and elegantly furnished, with repro-period furniture and some antiques. There really is a brook running alongside the garden, and the location is convenient for the many sandy beaches near Tralee, as well as golf.
