Stayed for one night after the Rose of Tralee. The hotel is well appointed and there is a sense of quiet and calm. The leisure centre is well maintained with gym, pool, sauna and steam room, just what you need to refresh you after a days travelling. The hotel rooms are spacious, clean and well presented. The hotel staff were... More

We had a fabulous mid day dinner here, and returned with a larger group the next day also. On both occasions the service was superb and the food amazing, great choices and each better then the next. The kids choice was graet too, and it made a pleasant surprise to find kids dinners came with vegtables!

As I say in the title of this review, this hotel is not bad at all, but you should not expect a great hotel of the same category as you would find in a big town or city. It is a bit old-fashioned, and this can be perceived in many details, not only the decoration but also fittings, infrastructure, and... More

We finally arrived after a twenty three hour journey with just go holidays. Hotel was good but journey there was horrendous, I would not wish that on anyone. We were totally exhausted before we started. Hotel worth a visit, but not with just go holidays

While in North Kerry on business, based myself here and found this hotel reasonably priced, nice clean rooms, good breakfast and ftiendly, helpful staff. A hive of activity with hotel full of foreign visitors, most on tour buses. The only drawback of course was some high pitched tones early in the mornings when some were in full voice, having no...

We stayed at The Brandon for two nights on our travels. The hotel is situated just off the town centre so a great place to explore from. The entrance is large and quite impressive and even if there are lots of people around it never feels very busy. The staff are extremely pleasant and helpful. Our twin room was a... More

hotel was spotless and room was clean, staff were friendly but there was no atmosphere in the lounge bar, no entertainment in the hotel which wouldn't entice you to stay in the bar in the evening, the breakfast was very poor so we decided not to take a chance on the bar food. If entertainment was laid on at night... More
