The Brooklodge Hotel is set in 140 acres of gardens and beautiful countryside. The Brooklodge is very eco-friendly and has a Bio-Digester to compost dry food waste. The resulting compost fertilizes the hotel's herb garden. Brooklodge's The Strawberry Tree Restaurant is Ireland's only certified organic restaurant. The hotel offers free parking.
Gardens to visit while staying at the Brooklodge Hotel include Mount Usher Garden (12 miles) and Powerscourt Estate Garden (18 miles). County Wicklow is often refered to as "The Garden of Ireland" for its gardens and beautiful scenery. Wicklow also has an annual Garden Festival (May-June) during which many private gardens are opened to the public.
