We provide an integral formula for the Poisson kernel of half-spaces for Brownian motion in real hyperbolic space $\mathbb{H}^n$. This enables us to find asymptotic properties of the kernel. We also show convergence to the Poisson kernel of the whole space $\mathbb{H}^n$. For $n=3$, $4$ or $6$ we compute explicit formulas for the Poisson kernel itself.

Keywords: Hyperbolic spaces, Brownian motion, Poisson kernel
