"Room w a view"
Lovely little b&b on the outskirts of town. Rooms were clean and comfy and our hostess was beyond friendly and helpful. We had a room in front with a fantastic view.

"Nice home at the far end of the Ring of Kerry"
We arrived at Brookhaven House just ahead of the annual Ring of Kerry charity ride, which trapped us for the morning in the immediate environs. This forced us to spend extra time on the northwest corner and on a neighboring ring- which ended up being fabulous! The home was clean and bright, the room spacious. We were greeted with coffee/tea and soda bread on arrival and served a very nice breakfast in the morning. However, the electricity went off for a few minutes, the wi-fi was a little spotty and the water temperature varied a lot. As with all other hotels and B&Bs on our trip to Ireland, the bedding was thick and fluffy, with no plain sheet of light blanket to accommodate a warmer night or "hot sleeper". The hostess is distressed by the short B&B season in Waterville and the bite that 3rd party bookings are taking away from her. Like many Irishmen, she wallowed in the negative while still being pleasant and accommodating.

"Surely, this is the most amazing B&B in Ireland!"
We were completely amazed by our stay at the Brookhaven House. It was quite simply perfect. What made it perfect? Well, there was a friendly, caring hostess; the room was packed with quality amenities (including a plate of fruit and chocolates on our pillows); the bed was unbelievably comfortable; and our breakfast of scrambled eggs and oak smoked Atlantic salmon was a delicious way to start off the day. What a marvelous stay we had at Brookhaven House!

"Awesome place!"
We arrived here at Brookhaven after hours of touring Ireland. The owner greeted us, helped us to our room, and brought us tea and coffee. She sat down in the main living area and talked with us for 30 mins or so. The rooms were great! After going out and exploring the town of Waterville, we were welcomed back with our beds turned down and chocolates on our pillows! Woke up the next morning with fresh breakfast! I would definitely stay at this B&B again and I would recommend it to anyone!

"Beautiful B&B on the Ring of Kerry"
Very friendly and welcoming owners who provided us with a great recommendation for dinner at a local pub. The room was very spacious with a large and comfortable bed. The guest sitting room with fireplace is a great place to unwind both before and after heading out. A generous breakfast is provided in a beautiful room downstairs with breakfast cooked to order. Overall a great B&B which we recommend and would definitely stay at again.

"A warm and friendly welcome awaits you here!"
We stayed at Brookhaven for four nights and were delighted by the warm welcome we received. A sumptuous breakfast kickstarted each day, chosen from an extensive menu. The room was spotlessly clean and fresh, as was all areas of the Guest House and we couldn't have wished for a nicer place to stay.

宿に着いたら、予約が入っていないと言われて、ほかの宿を紹介された。結果的に宿は確保されたので良かったが、場所は離れていてレンタカーがなければ移動できない場所だった。宿のオーナー曰く、ここ数日コンピューターの調子が悪かったので、とのこと。貴サイトの信頼性にも影響すること故、しっかり調査の上改善を期待する。

"The Best B&B ever!!!"
02/08/16 Lyn D Cumberland, Maine
This is a lovely, clean, comfortable B&B but the thing that makes it exceptional is the warmth of the owners. If there is anything that they can help you with or do to make your stay more pleasant, they will go out of their way to do so. Our itinerary only allowed us to stay there for 2 nights but before we left we felt like family. My daughter had planned our trip to Ireland as a birthday present for me. Mary remembered this from the reservation that my daughter made and after a busy day of sightseeing I returned to my room to find a card and flowers from her lovely garden. So very thoughtful! Honestly, staying at Brookhaven was one of the highlights of our trip. I can't think about planning another trip to Ireland without including a stay at Brookhaven. Oh, and as an added plus, the location is great.

"Top Class"
11/05/15 Mairead C Dublin, Ireland
When I called Mary to book rooms for myself and three golfing friends, she was so welcoming and friendly on the phone. The rooms were lovely, spotlessly clean, really comfy beds and pillows and we all had a great nights sleep. Breakfast the next morning was a treat and as good if not better than any top hotel in Ireland. Mary provided lovely fresh fruit salad, and fresh fruit too, choice of cereals/muesli/granola, great choice of cooked breakfast and gorgous breads and scones. We opted for bacon and scrambled eggs, the other two had the eggs with smoked salmon. Delicious. Mary herself was absolutely charming and friendly and full of information. We were only there for one night to play golf in the adjoining Waterville golf course but I would highly recommend this guest house and especially for tourists from outside Ireland who travelling around Ireland; Mary was a mine of information.

"Beautiful rooms, beautiful view"

Mary was a lovely hostess. She showed us the 2 rooms that were open; one in the front and we chose the one in the front of the house overlooking the sea. You could se the Waterville golf course from our room. Mr. John let us sit and watch World Cup Rugby with him and he explained the rules so that we could understand.

10/05/15 Kerry O Petoskey, Michigan
The Brookhaven is nice but it will not make the top shelf on our list of B&B's for our trip around Ireland. Our host was friendly, the view of the water required binoculars, and our mattress like many in Ireland had little foam on top so you could feel the springs.

"Wonderful hosts, lovely rooms"
10/01/15 WorldloverSantaFe Santa Fe
We stayed at 10 B&Bs during our trip to Ireland and this was one of the top. We arrived early, our room wasn't ready, but Mary graciously welcomed us to relax in their large, living room until the rain storm stopped and we could walk into town. Their living room was the largest we've seen in a B&B and well-stocked with books and games. Even though she was busy preparing rooms, she visited with us for a while and gave us some good recommendations for dinner. Her husband, John was so friendly and we enjoyed our conversation with him. The room was lovely, large, and the bathroom was immaculate. Breakfast was delicious in their elegant breakfast room. They work hard to run a top notch B&B and they seem to be very well regarded in the community. The B&B is perhaps 1 1/2 to 2km outside of town. We enjoyed the walks, but when the rains started, John took us to our restaurant for dinner.

"Beautiful and quaint "
09/26/15 Janel G Chattanooga, Tennessee
This has been the best place we have stayed yet in Ireland. The rooms are gorgeous , breakfast was great, and Mary the host is fabulous and most friendly. She gave us recommendations on where to eat and that has been one of the best places we have eaten yet here in Ireland. The city of Waterville has been a true Irish experience in a beautiful area! It is nice to get away from the big cities and is very close to one of the best golf courses in the world. Not to mention Charlie Chapman retired here and has a monument dedicated to him.

"an ideal base for excursions around Waterville"
08/16/15 Kurt B Boulder, Colorado
John and Mary were very welcoming. We stayed with them while on a walk on the Kerry Way. John was gracious to run us into town for dinner and pick us up later to save us from having to walk in the rain. Mary fixed us a couple of nice lunches, and dried our damp hiking clothes so that we could start the day with dry clothes. Breakfast was delicious and just what we needed to get our day started.

Lovely 2 night stay during August 2015. Mary was very welcoming and the rooms are comfortable with great beds! During the wetter weather there isn't heaps to do but we enjoyed a tour of the ring of skellig and we also enjoyed a trip to the skellig chocolate factory.
