The hotel is lovely and the evening meal in Danu rest was delicious but the breakfast buffet was a let down, Luke warm and some of the bowls hadn't been rinsed properly, we had to take off a few bowls that were stacked to find one that hadn't got dishwasher residue on, the teapots on opening were a bit slimey...

We stayed two nights at this hotel, overall impression it's not quite good enough. Rooms and breakfast average quality, Danu restaurant appears to have good quality chef but service quality uneven. Functional and could do better.

After long search finally we found a spa hotel that really looked like they show in their pictures. No screaming children in the pool, great spa service. We had one of the best meal in their restaurant since we're in Ireland. Special thanks to the Maitre D for the outstanding service!

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
