Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Stylish, comfortable and attractively priced’, Una and Dermot Brennan’s family-run boutique hotel puts the emphasis on a ‘warm, friendly’ Kerry welcome. Public rooms are hung with ‘good modern art’, much of it local; leather sofas set in alcoves ‘allow a degree of privacy’. Bedrooms in varying sizes are stocked with robes and slippers and a yoga mat; freshly brewed tea and coffee are brought to the room on request, with home-made chocolate chip cookies. ‘Our good-sized ground-floor room had two comfy armchairs, a super-king-size bed, a work table with an Anglepoise lamp. In the spotless bathroom: modern fittings, wonderful underfloor heating.’ The informal bar/restaurant serves food all day, from lunchtime club sandwiches to traditional-with-a-twist mains such as Dermot’s rare-breed pork belly duo, confit cabbage, hazelnuts. (A 15-minute walk away, sister restaurant No. 35 has more modern dishes, perhaps salted hake, smoked bacon and mixed bean stew, burnt onion purée, seaweed butter.) A good base for scenic tours of the Beara peninsula, the Ring of Kerry and the Wild Atlantic Way; the hotel’s local walking guide has ideas closer to home. (RG)
