A last minute decision to escape mid week meant we got a fantastic deal here. More money to spend for me in the fabulous Angsana Spa. There is very little to say other than EVERYTHING really is fab. My favourite things are the fabulous foyer with its comfy sofas and cool fires. I could just hang out there all day....

Stayed here in December for a wedding and had a fantastic day . The food and service at the wedding was excellent. We went to the main bar after the meal and it had a really nice relaxing ambience. Our room was beautiful and spotless clean. Well done to all involved looking forward to my next visit.

My wife and I are just back after a three-day trip to The Brehon and we were blown away by the spacious room and terrace, the friendliness of the staff and the superb meal we had in the restaurant. It was our 30th wedding anniversary and the experience of staying in the hotel was overwhelmingly positive. We'll be back.
