So, I recently stayed here with my boyfriend, 3 nights B&B midweek, one word FAB. Having been to Killarney many times over the years I had always admired the Brehon from across the car park in its sister hotel 'The Gleneagles'! Now, don't get me wrong, 'The Gleneagles' is also a fantastic hotel but the Brehon always looked so glam,... More

We had a superior suite for the night and it was beautiful. Check in was easy and the girl was lovely. We went to our room and it was very spacious and clean. There was a lovely box of chocolates and bottle of wine there. We had the best stay we had anywhere. We have stayed in 5 star castles... More

We stayed here recently on a deal of 2 nights B&B dinner on one night and Afternoon tea at a rate of roughly 140 per person sharing. It was a complete bargain - midweek offer. The hotel itself is fantastic. It's very modern, extremely clean and all of their products are high quality(down to soaps/hand moisturizers in the bathrooms). As... More

Stayed here recently at a wedding and was extremely impressed with the hotel again. Aesthetically it is absolutely beautiful, very imposing as you leave Killarney town and approach the lakes. On arrival the reception area is more five star than four star and the reception staff were exceptionally nice. The room was spacious, spotless and the beds were sound. Although... More

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of April. Everything about this hotel oozes luxury. Staff are friendly and efficient. Rooms are spotless and spacious. The buffet breakfast was first class. We had dinner in the bar and this also was really nice. We would definitely stay again. Overall we loved it.
