Beautiful, spacious rooms, lovely setting, perfect location. Food is great, service is top-notch. We were so grateful for the laundry service - we stayed at The Brehon mid-way through a three-week trip and were in need of laundry service. The Brehon charged by the bag, not per piece, and they delivered everything clean and folded. I would absolutely stay there... More

It was on the right side and a short distance from Muckross, which we wanted to visit. We reserved 4 bikes the night before for the trip,... More
