From the moment we arrived at The Brehon, i knew that we had made the right decision. It's rather impressive from the outside, and the interior is equally pretty. On the day we arrived it was rather cold & miserable (despite it being Summer) but there are beautiful gas fireplaces dotted around the entrance lobby and comfortable couches for people... More

Visited here last weekend and it is an excellent location if attending an event in the INEC. Lovely hotel for viewing the beautiful Killarney Sights, and near enough to walk to Killarney National Park, Muckross House, and to walk into the town. Truly, one of the most beautiful corners of the World. Staff are very friendly and professional, Cocktails are... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in June whilst visiting the ring of Kerry. Very nice stay overall. We were made to wait for an hour to check in on first arriving and so were given a free upgrade to a superior room. Breakfast is included and is of a high quality.
