Some Kerry air for Chris

Who wouldn’t want to be pampered for 2 nights, treated to a hearty meal and have breakfast served up to them in a super-comfy hotel in the beautiful town of Kenmare?

Judging by the entry received to our Christmas ‘By the Fireside’ competition, plenty of readers are in need of some TLC to get them over the festive blues.

The 4 star boutique Brook Lane Hotel in Kenmare is the destination in the near future for Shanballymore lady and Avondhu reader Chris Curry, who was lucky enough to be first drawn from the hefty sack-full of entries received at our offices.

Chris can look forward to her 2-night getaway to the heart of scenic Kenmare with B&B on both nights and an evening meal as part of the winning package.

There will be little reason not to burn off any excess calories browsing the streets of this jewel in the crown of the Kingdom, or perhaps strolling in the surrounding mountains and forest parks.

This boutique hotel has a reputation for lovely rooms, great food and a warm welcome. With free parking and free internet access, there’s plenty to look forward to for Chris and whoever she chooses to accompany her, so enjoy!
