This B&B is in a great location right in the heart of the town, the rooms are cute, the bed is comfortable, and the breakfast is delicious. I had whisky porridge, which was delicious! My only issue was the very strong smell of smoke. I was concerned my clothes would smell from staying there, it was so strong. The smell... More

We chose Berkeley because it offered early check-in, which was greatly appreciated after our overnight flight, and because it was easily accessible by Bus Eireann from Shannon Airport. It turned out to be an excellent choice. It was quiet, and we were each able to take naps and turn in early in the evening for a long sleep. On the... More

My Father and I were traveling through Adare and decided to stop for the night. We just went up to the door and rang at about 11pm. Bridie (the owner) was quick to welcome us and had a room available. The room and other areas were spotless and the breakfast menu was extensive and delicious. I would definitely recommend and...

Extremely nice bed and breakfast with a charming atmosphere. The owner goes out of her way to make your stay pleasant. The rooms are freshly decorated and the feel is that of being a guest in a friends home. The location is good. A short walk to the town center which reveals a small but interesting city. Nice pubs, shopping... More

Standard B&B in the beautiful town of Adare. We stayed there for a wedding at the weekend. The welcome was standard, room was fine, nothing fancy but nothing wrong with it either. But the smell of cigarette smoke in the whole house, and particularly our bedroom was overwhelming. We had to throw all of our clothes into the washing machine... More

Went on a road trip of Ireland and the Berkeley lodge was the second B&B on our trip. We loved it!! Close to shops and pubs and the host was super nice. We even took a run around the river walk. Would definitely recommend to others!!
