We attended a wedding recently at the Brehon and at short notice requested a special needs room as my wife had recently broken her hip and needed an adjusted bathroom. The wood at the wedding reception was excellent and breakfast the following morning was spot on with multiple choice cereals, fruit and breads. Complimentary newspapers in the morning were very...

We live in Limerick, Ireland. It was a lovely treat to enjoy the music & fun of a night out in Killarney town square, then come back for a few drinks in the bar at the hotel. We woke up & enjoyed a filling fry, homemade pancakes & made to order eggs benedict, followed by a relaxing morning trying out... More

Stayed 3 nights at the Brehon. Our room was lovely and we received a bottle of wine and chocolates in our room on arrival. We opted to pay the extra 5 euros and have breakfast delivered to our room in the mornings and it was very good. The only negative would be that it's not really walking distance to anything,...

Stayed in The Brehon for one night as a Bday treat. Was an absolutely stunning hotel. The vitality pool was amazing. Perfect for relaxing. I'd actually book again just for the use of the vitality pool/jacuzzi/steam room. Well worth the money for a bit of pampering! Breakfast was standard but with excellent service. We were shown to a table straight... More

Spent 2 nights on a weekend break and really liked this friendly unpretentious hotel. About a 20 minutes walk into town or 5euro taxi if you don't feel up to the walk. We had a superior room which was very spacious , yet cozy and warm. Staff very friendly, hotel was full when we stayed but no problem in bar... More
