This was the worst hotel in our four village Ireland tour. Construction seemed to be every where. The dingy smelly hallways were a bit unnerving when I was walking to my room by myself. Reminded me of that movie "The Shining", I was half expecting to see a little boy on a big wheels barreling down the long hallway. Was... More

Went with a large group. Hearded like cattle into a function room for breakfast, tea in paper cups with t-bag still in. Juice in plastic cups. Place like a construction site, extremely noisy, rooms ok but I would never recommend this place to anyone. Staff were rude and unhelpful. No vending machines to get a cold water from.

Was very concerned to be staying here after reading all of the negative reviews but we were obligated since we were travelling the country on a Groupon travel package. our overall experience during our 2 night stay was quite enjoyable. The staff was so warm and couldn't do enough for us. We enjoyed the pool, had a massage and the... More

We stayed by using a Groupon, so my review may not be what everyone experiences. They were working on replacing floors and redoing their bar/restaurant although the formal dining room was open for dinner and breakfast. The problem we experienced was that you had to transport your luggage down a hallway, up 13 steps and travel down a hallway to... More

With all the bad reviews we felt we had to share our experience. We stayed in the Breaffy House Hotel for the weekend 13/3/15-15/3/15. Overall had no problems whatsoever with the main concerns of rooms, food, cleanliness and hospitality. The room was spacious and clean. We were very happy with the food we had, both for breakfast were the dining... More

Have just arrived back from a very disappointing stay at Breaffy House. When we booked we were informed that renovations would be finished before we arrived, unfortunately that wasn`t the case and by the look of things, building works will be going on for some time. The corridors and floors down to our room were unfinished with building works being... More

Dear dorabootsIreland, Thank you for taking the time to write a review regarding your recent stay at Breaffy House Resort. I do apologise if you were led to believe that the renovation work would be completed prior to your stay. Some of the work is taking a little longer than we initially expected. With regards to the heat, guest comfort... More

I booked a night in breaffy house last october for myself and my two boys to coincide with the dublin v mayo game in Castlebar last night. As it was a treat for the boys I was dreading what was in store having read the recent reviews regarding refurbishment, and guests relocated to breaffy woods. Having stayed there last night,I...

My partner and I booked this hotel to celebrate an important anniversary. We were tempted by the promise of elegant luxury and traditional old world charm on the official website. What we actually got was a noisy, half-finished shambolic hotel, with views of skips and scaffolding from our bedroom, workman drilling into walls throughout the day and piles of old... More

This hotel is undergoing renovation and it is a disaster because of this. There is no bar, drinks are served in the reception coffee dock, with a TV showing sport loudly! Just not a relaxing start to our stay after a 5 hour (although I must say beautiful magnificent Wild Atlantic Way drive through Connemara from Galway!) After many wrong... More
