Great stay. All the reception staff (especially Eadaoin) were very helpful and welcoming. The room was fabulous, with a great view (we got upgraded thanks lads! 😊). Room service for dinner, which was delicious.

This was our second time visiting The Brehon. On both occasions everything was exceptional...welcome by the reception staff, food, spa, room, breakfast just to name some. A very thoughtful anniversary treat was placed in our room on arrival. Every detail was looked after.I could not rate this hotel any higher. I'm already looking forward to returning!

Spent 2 nights at the Brehon in late June as part of a 5 day road trip around southern Ireland. The hotel is very nice, just a short walk into town. The pool area is great for relaxing and the hotel bar was busy both nights with functions and weddings. The staff were helpful and the morning breakfast was well... More

Staff were amazing, really gave the impression they knew who you were and were incredibly welcoming. Hotel is in the perfect location, not too far from the centre of Killarney, not too far from torc waterfall and Muckross house which both have fabulous walks.

Visiting in April 2016, we stayed at a local B&B but dined several times at their outstanding restaurant and bar. Great food, great service, professional staff, and very family friendly. The bar was open at 4:00 pm and that allowed us to dine early, on one occasion.

I stayed at this hotel with a group. The staff are friendly and efficient. Lovely, relaxing hotel. It's a pleasant ten to fifteen minute walk into town, but there is a shuttle bus during the day if you don't fancy a walk. The rooms were spacious and very well serviced. The breakfast was excellent. I would definitely stay here again.

I stayed here for 2 nights. From the outside the hotel looks impressive. The staff were excellent throughout our stay. I did not find the bar menu good - not many choices. We were going to try the restaurant but that night there was only 3 choices on the menu, and again not great. The bar could do with an... More

Took a number of rooms over three days as a treat for my wifes parents who are celebrating their 50th anniversary, and the hotel very kindly upgraded us and ensured the rooms were close together. This involved catering for a group ranging from grandparents down to grandchildren and I cannot fault any aspect of the service. Rooms: modern, spotless, roomy... More
