Down in Killarney for three nights with the family and found The Brehon superb. The staff are friendly, the accommodation fantastic (family delux), with the overall feel comfortable and satisfying. A great hotel overall, however the breakfast was a bit lacking ie. Fresh fruits, yoghurts, bacon were not up to the same standards as the rest of the hotel, and... More

My wife and I had our wedding reception here last month. From the moment we first viewed the hotel last year, our experience was entirely positive. Greg and Kelly Ann took care of every detail and we're extremely helpful and professional for the entire process. The banqueting room was laid out perfectly taking into account all our requests.

We had our wedding at The Brehon in mid August 2015. It was the most amazing venue the staff and wedding planner Kelly Ann made our day everything we dreamed it would be by seeing to our every need and ensuring all our guests had a great time. The function room was spectacular and the food was top class. The... More

A unique hotel from the outside yet simple mistakes were made leading to an uninspired feeling whilst checking out. No robes in the room and the 10oz steak was a wee bit misleading. Upon checkout the issued bill was incorrect and just felt as if we were at fault and the hotel was obviously at fault not good. Ps dont... More

Two-day stay in July 2015. If there was one thing where the Brehon was not perfect was the information at the front desk about hours of funcioning of breakfast and restaurant: in these cases the real times were different from the informed. This is a minor issue, all the rest was great. The Brehon is a majestic looking building in... More

The room overlooked the back car park, not exciting but we weren't interested in the view! Close to Muckross House, which is a must-do in the area, about a 20-30 minute walk depending on your fitness. Close to the town and Main Street, lots of parking in the grounds despite being fully booked for weddings every day. No noise or... More
