“Friendliness”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

I came here with my daughter for three nights! Fantastic meal, service second to none! Warm welcome on arrival. Staff most courteous. Spa was really good, had a lovely massage- relaxing, definitely worth it, one of the best I've ever had! The reception area is so cosy with its lovely fires and couches. Nice to balm out and read the paper. We had afternoon tea and it was simply delicious! Would definitely recommend. The bar food and wine is excellent also. There are lovely walks near the lake across the road and beautiful views of the mountains! Great location as you can walk into town in no time!

Amazing stay from start to finish. Staff in both hotel and angsana spa were always so nice and helpful and always had a smile on their faces. Such amazing views from the room. Couldn't have asked to wake up to a better view. Not my first visit and definitely not my last.

The hotel itself is luxurious. The foyer was very spacious and comfortable to sit and spend some time. The rooms offered that little bit extra comfort for a value break. The staff were very friendly,helpful and very efficient. The meals were top class in both the diningroom and in the bar. The Spa facility was amazing and added that bit of extra luxury to our break. A 2 day break in The Brehon was as beneficial as a weeks break elswhere. We enjoyed The Brehon so much we have already recommended it to friends. 10/10

Just spent 3 lovely nights in The Brehon...The reception area is large but not imposing and the beautiful fires are warm and welcoming. The staff are friendly and very efficient and ready to answer any question. Our room was amazing we booked a deluxe double and that's exactly what it was. The room and ensuite were huge, air con was at a perfect temp so it was warm and cosy, we ordered room service for dinner the first night, the menu is extensive and coeliac friendly and the wine list is excellent. The food arrived in no time. We had a problem with the TV on Saturday evening (rugby) ! But again no worries it was fixed in seconds! Breakfast each morning was a joy, food is so fresh, we enjoyed dinner in the restaurant on Saturday night again the food was excellent. The spa was lovely too, the choice of pools, sauna and steam room. Just a little tip the lockers are not great...but if you use the robe provided in your room you wont need a locker. Yes i would recommend The Brehon to anyone heading to Kerry. Thanks guy's.

I booked a two night break at The Brehon based on friends recommendations but I never expected it to be as good as it actually was!! It was faultless!!! I am big on customer service, and The Brehon doesn't disappoint. The room was lovely, the food was great, and the spa was unbelievable!! We used the Vitality Suite twice and loved, loved, loved it! We had a full body massage in the spa and were made to feel like a Queen!! It was honestly the best break I have ever had!!

We stayed at the apartments behind the Brehon, and ate here the first evening. I had braised steak and mash, and the better half had a wrap. Both were excellent, and we returned as a group of 17 a few nights later. Same result. The only complaint was there was too much on the plate. The staff were exceptional friendly and served very efficiently, especailly with such a large group. We had a very pleasant evening. Many thanks.
