We have just returned from another great break at The Brehon. We enjoyed everything from the FOOD, the whole atmosphere and the most generous size room. The feeling of total relaxation is felt throughout the whole hotel. A visit to the Spa is a must. Staff in all areas are always happy to attend to their guests at all times.... More

Came here for a mid-week break and I was really surprised. The lobby is just beautiful, open fires burning throughout and great seating. Reception team were very helpful and check-in and check-out was a breeze. The room was magnificent! Great size, nice temperature, comfortable bed, very clean and an amazing bathroom and shower (and underfloor heating is just beyond class).... More

They had a lovely "happy birthday "plate in the girls room which was a nice start. However the meal was very poor and all nine of us agreed. The next day in the bar we... More
