Lovely hotel a tad far from town but lovely none-the-less. Our room was upgraded to a large suite which was somewhat ridiculous for just my husband and myself. Must have been over 1000 sq ft with 1-1/2 baths, living/dining room and enormous bedroom + dressing room. Very very nice accommodations with an amazing view of bucolic Irish green, grazing cows...

We arrived as the car races were ending. The place was a mad house. The hotel manager made sure that our tour bus had a place to park. Checking in was easy and painless. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed my cocktails in the lounge. Food was also very good. Would love to stay there again.

The foyer of the hotel looks amazing, but the style isn't carried through the rest of the hotel. The suite felt small and lacked things like underfloor heating. The bathroom was... More

We really liked this hotel, and but for a lost watch that was stolen by its staff, it would get 5 stars from me. As it is, 3 stars is very generous. My watch battery had gone dead. I was storing it, along with my receiver given me by CIE tours for their guided tours, in the top zipper pocket... More

We had our wedding in the Brehon on the 13th September 2014 and it was the best days of our lives! We loved the Brehon as a place to stay while in Killarney due to its fabulous location and its amazing views from the front rooms, to its beautiful foyer(amazing in the colder months to sit with a coffee by...

Stayed in the Brehon for the third time in a year and cannot recommend it highly enough. The first time we stayed we were given a complimentary room upgrade - to a corner room at the end of the corridor with great views to the front and side of the hotel, and each time since they have provided us with...

Stayed at The Brehon Hotel a few times and loved it, lovely staff very friendly and helpful, lovely bar food and if you want something more formal they have a wonderful restaurant. Whether you are on business, a couple, with family or friends or are travelling solo you can't go wrong staying at the Brehon.
