Had a lovely stay again at the Brehon. Fab room and very comfortable. The staff in accommodation were extremely friendly giving a warm greeting every time we passed. The Spa was exceptional and both staff on duty gave so much time to us both. The lady who did my treatment I really want to commend as she was so focused... More

This place was recommended by a taxi driver in Killarney and I sure do appreciate his good advice. Linda at the front desk went out of her way on numerous occasions to accommodate me and just the experience from her helpful ways would be enough to recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great place to stay. The food,... More

Myself and my wife stayed at The Brehon for 4 nights with our 7 months old boy at the beginning of March. The arrival experience was nice, the big reception/lobby area is beautiful, gorgeous fires and lounge sofas but I was little disappointed with lack of help with our suitcases.This was a start of our 2 week holiday across Ireland,...

Great first impression, the reception was stunning and the room even more so. We were facing the mountains towards the front in a spacious and airy room with great facilities. The room was spotlessly clean. Hotel was buzzing as there was a wedding on. Unfortunately that night the neighbouring guests were really noisy in the corridors returning to their rooms,... More

I stayed in this hotel while attending a conference in a neighbouring hotel. The staff of the Brehon were excellent, and the room was very comfortable. There were two bottles of still water in the room on check-in, which I have always found to be a simple but important gesture on the part of hotels. The overall design and feel... More

For the price, this hotel did not live up to my expectations. My fiance and I stayed here one night over Easter weekend. While the room was spacious and clean, it was extremely hot at night (too noisy outside to open the window) and the bed was extremely uncomfortable. I didn't feel very welcomed in this hotel - a shocking... More
