Just returned from a lovely 4 day stay at the Brehon with my Mum. Staff were friendly, helpful and so courteous. Had a problem with the air conditioning - changed room but got an upgrade at no extra cost. Gorgeous room with 2 big windows giving panoramic views of mountains. Location is great- just a 15 minute stroll from town centre, or you can avail of the courtesy bus if you don't want to walk or drive. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Corner rooms have 2 windows- more interesting view and obviously more light

A really good hotel to stay in with very spacious rooms and such a comfortable bed. The hotel is excellently soundproofed too so there was no intrusion of noise from corridor or neighbouring rooms. What really impressed me too was the excellent breakfast service put on for all the participants in the Ring of Kerry Cycle from 0500. It was first class service. The restaurant is quite good and the staff are friendly and efficient. The only quibble I have about the place is the bar which is noisy because of the television. A quiet bar would be a nice welcome addition but in the grand scheme of things, it is a small point and I will go back to the Brehon.

Room Tip: Ours was a standard room on the first floor and it was spacious. there was space for the bike away f...

My husband & I stayed at The Brehon from 2/07/14 to 9/07/14(7nights)We received the warmest of welcomes when we arrived to check in at Reception. The quality of service was exceptional throughout the Hotel.All of the staff were so helpful, always smiling & took the time to chat to us individually,when we returned from been out sightseeing during the day, in The Brehon Bar every night while we waited to be served our Evening Meal & also at Breakfast every morn - always made us feel so special.The Bedroom was spacious, had a fantastic comfortable bed, large TV with a great selection of Channels & a fridge,where we could keep our bottled water chilled every day.The varied choice of food available for Breakfast was terrific,nobody would come out of the Danú Restaurant hungry!It was the same for our Evening Meal every night & we sat in the spacious lobby after our meal to enjoy our latte.We had stayed a week at The Brehon last year & a weekend in February 2014. We would hope to be able to return to The Brehon again for our Annual Holiday in 2015 & maybe for a weekend before then. Thank you so much to all the Staff at The Brehon for our memorable vacation.

I honestly could not fault this beautiful hotel. My husband booked a surprise stay at The Brehon for our wedding anniversary. He found the staff incredibly helpful when secretly booking & felt they went out of their way to ensure our stay was special. Upon arrival, we were greeted by a lovely, friendly receptionist who cheerfully told us about breakfast, the complimentary use of the Vitality Suite and wished us a happy anniversary. To both mine and my husbands delight we quickly learnt we had been upgraded to a suite & there was a beautifully decorated plate with an anniversary message and chocolates in our room. The room was spotless and tastefully decorated with views of the mountains. The receptionist rang shortly after our arrival to check the room was to our liking and when I asked if a second both robe & slippers could be arranged, they were delivered within minutes. Our breakfast was delicious & my coeliac needs were catered for with no problems. And the vitality suite...what can I say...pure bliss. We will recommend The Brehon to all of our friendly & family. Really was an incredibly pleasant stay in a beautiful hotel.

We stayed at the Brehon at the end of May and I couldn't recommend it more! We got a free room upgrade for booking through Tripadvisor and it was huge, great view!! The location is good, short distance from town, we got a taxi in when we went in 2/3 minutes! Plus your on the doorstep of Killarney National Park. We are in the bar when we arrived, lovely food! The breakfast was great, big selection! We visited the spa also, very relaxing!! The best point of this hotel are the staff, fantastic, so helpful couldn't do enough for us! Even when we had car problems they got us back on the road! They are a huge asset to the hotel. I would definitely visit this hotel again!!

I loved my stay there, which began with a polite call from reception once I got into my room to see if the room was okay.

Dinner was delicious and the staff are all exceptionally friendly. The spa area is really nice and exactly what you would expect after the high standards already shown in the main hotel area.

Room Tip: Try get a view of the mountains
