Good Hotel Guide Review
In a small town well placed for tours of the Ring of Kerry, and the Wild Atlantic Way, Una and Dermot Brennan’s hotel is family-run, with a lot of heart and luxury boutique aspirations. Beyond the car park a ‘warm, very friendly, helpful’ welcome awaits. Stylish seating alcoves off the corridor have ‘leather sofas, designer lighting, tied-back curtains, space-enhancing mirrors, good modern art’. Bedrooms are smart, contemporary, with ‘comfortable bed’, a range of facilities (a whirlpool bath, maybe), robes, slippers, good toiletries, ‘wonderful underfloor heating’, room service. Food is served all day in the popular Casey’s bar, where a fixed-price dinner menu might include rare-breed pork belly duo from the owners’ farm, confit cabbage, hazelnuts, cider glaze, pork jus. There is more choice at sister restaurant No. 35, a 15-minute walk away. Breakfast is served until late in a room next to the bar, where the ‘delightful, articulate’ Una was presiding when our inspector called. Organic eggs are from their ‘happy hens’. The situation is not bucolic, but the hotel wins approval for good accommodation, ‘good value and a genuine sense of hospitality’. (JM, and others)
