Myself and my friend bought a Groupon deal for the spa in Breaffy House. We got a great deal and the treatments were the best I've ever had. We had travelled a long journey so we decided to stay the night. Our room was lovely but a bit dated. Very warm and comfortable though and the price was good. Breakfast... More

We had our wedding reception here and it was top class from the moment we booked the venue to when we left the morning after the wedding, the efficiency, professional and friendly reception we received was outstanding. Our banquet Manager Denice Kenny was exceptional in her job and made our day the best we could have imagined.

Had a fantastic family break. Staff were all friendly and my 5 year old loved the swimming pool. We were moved to Breafy House when we had originally booked Breafy woods and we were so happy that we were, rooms were large and beds very comfortable. Would definitely book Breafy House again
