We planned to get married at Christmas in Killarney and The Brehon Hotel was the first hotel we looked at in early Jan 2014. The atmosphere/ welcome in the hotel was just what we were looking for. We knew the food was really good and... More

My wife and I took a few days out to unwind at the start of the month. We've been once a year to the Brehon for the last 3 years. The location is excellent, just far enough out of town but close to National Park, Muckross House and Gardens and Torc waterfall for a bit of walking and adventure. This... More

My wife and I are just back after a three-day trip to The Brehon and we were blown away by the spacious room and terrace, the friendliness of the staff and the superb meal we had in the restaurant. It was our 30th wedding anniversary and the experience of staying in the hotel was overwhelmingly positive. We'll be back.
