We stayed at the Brehon at the end of May and I couldn't recommend it more! We got a free room upgrade for booking through Tripadvisor and it was huge, great view!! The location is good, short distance from town, we got a taxi in when we went in 2/3 minutes! Plus your on the doorstep of Killarney National Park.... More

I loved my stay there, which began with a polite call from reception once I got into my room to see if the room was okay. Dinner was delicious and the staff are all exceptionally friendly. The spa area is really nice and exactly what you would expect after the high standards already shown in the main hotel area.

The Brehon is a real 'getting away from it all' hotel. Set very close to the Killarney National Park, the INEC and about ten minutes walk to Killarney town Centre, it has everything you need for a great weekend. The Spa there is fantastic too.

My wife and I had a wonderful stay in the Brehon recently. We went there for my nieces wedding, which was perfect from start to finish. The room was comfortable and spacious and the staff were very helpful and friendly. We will definately be calling back in the near future. Edel and Denis Burke.

We stayed in a family suite with 2 young children and the room was perfect and a great size. Only reason it wasn't a 5 star rating was the shower in the bathroom was too small (and they had the space to make it bigger). All the staff in hotel were great. Breakfast and dinner in the restaurant was excellent.... More

We certainly enjoyed our two night stay at the Brehon. The staff was super friendly and the food was excellent. The rooms were above average and very clean, but the bathroom was somewhat unusual in its layout. The shower was mounted on the side wall of the tub, making it a little difficult, but not impossible to take a decent... More

Again, booking on line, we had no idea what we would actually get when we arrived. A truly wonderful three night experience awaited us. The Brehon is large, but the people make it feel small and warm. All the staff from housekeepers to bartenders were friendly and very helpful. Our large, beautiful room was on a corner so we were...
