Nice home at the far end of the Ring of Kerry
Posted Jul 5, 2015
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.
