Dear mcgauran1,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Breaffy House Resort. I’m very disappointed to read your review, and that the hotel did not meet your expectations. Unfortunately we are not a four star, but a three star, but that does not excuse us for having a disappointing breakfast. Your comments will be passed on to our kitchen team.
With regards to our pool facially, kids are welcome from 7 in the morning till 7 in the evening, after that we reserve it for adults. We run a full kids club from 11 in the morning till 10 in the evening where the highlight is our kids disco from 7.30 till 10.

Regards,

Wilson Bird

When we drove up the long driveway to the Hotel,we thought this was going to cost an arm and a leg to stay here.But we were in for a pleasant surprise,the cost being 74 Euros per night,which included full Breakfast.The staff were all very obliging,and the service was very good.Breaffy House is a magnificent hotel,set in lovely grounds,and only 5 minutes from Castlebar by car.We will certainly stay there again when we next visit Ireland.

Dear milton2471,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Breaffy House Resort. I am delighted to write your review. It is a very nice driveway, Im not sure if its the ponys grazing in the fields or is it the woodlands that makes it so special. Our Staff take great pride in the service at the resort and will enjoy reading your review.

I look forward to seen you back at the resort soon.

Kind regards,

Wilson Bird

I stayed at breaffy hotel with my dad we went on a coach holiday. we both had big rooms they were spotlessly clean and the bedding was luxurious. the views from the bedrooms was beautiful. the hotel was very impressive from the outside and equally impressive inside. On our first night we arrived 2 hours late but the staff stayed behind to cook and serve our evening meal which was heavenly and kept the bar open an hour longer, this was very much appreciated. the food every night was wonderful and fresh, at breakfast you were spoiled for choice. the staff were very friendly and polite. the grounds were lovely to walk round and it was nice seeing the horses. we got a taxi into castlebar one day, the lady driver was great so friendly and told us the best places to go. I would love to go again it was a wonderful holiday.
