We usually stay in the Brehon if we visit Killarney. The rooms are spacious and overall they are nicely decorated. Breakfast is nice although my preference is for table service for hot food instead of buffet, but that's just a personal thing for me! The hotel is just across the road from the lovely Muckross Park and a short ten... More

Arrived for some massage treatments. Was met by a breath taking reception area. Directed down to the Spa where we were treated like royalty. Spent two hours being pampered in the pool, sauna, steam room followed by a one hour long couples massage. Loved it and will definately be returning

I stayed for one night in August. This is a big hotel. Although we were too early for check in. The receptionist took our bags and delivered them to our room when it was ready. She then found us in the bar where we were having lunch to let us know. The rooms are spacious and we had a large... More

Such a beautiful hotel inside and out. Upon arrival, the staff greeted us promptly and heartily. They ensured our rooms were available immediately and had a cold drink on hand while we waited. The lobby, dining area, bathrooms and rooms are delightful. The hotel is clean and the food was very good. The scenery looking out of the hotel is... More

Nice hotel. The waitstaff are very nice and friendly. We would have rated this hotel higher except the room was not as clean when we arrived as we would have expected. They were incredibly prompt to address the issue and we really appreciated that. The dining experience was okay. We were expecting a bit more given the price. The gym... More

I really like the look of this hotel before I booked it for my husband and I and our 4 year old twins, so we booked 2 interconnecting rooms. On arrival they advised us the rooms weren't available and was upgraded to the Presidential Suite without even having to say anything. We were amazed when we arrived up to the... More

Stayed here for long weekend, beautiful hotel and beautiful room. The hotel is in good location, €6 taxi to town centre at night. My favourite part of the stay was using the pool. To use the pool, you must sign into the spa first. Towels are provided, you are free to use the jacuzzis, steam room, sauna, ice room and... More

I'll keep this short and sweet as I have only good things to say but nothing to elaborate on. I work in and stay in hotels all over the country every week (I am a performer in a high end band-weddings, corporate events, etc take me all over the country) and this place is wonderful.
