“Want to go back!!”
Reviewed 14 December 2013 via mobile

I have heard about this hotel from many people and could not wait to stay! Unfortunately due to delays it was rather late in the evening before we arrived down and was unable to visit the spa. We got a complimentary upgrade and the room was amazing with amazing views! The food in the restaurant was nice and although we were sitting in a draught and my dessert wasn't ye nice I had tasted I still could not fault this hotel....dying to get back!!!

Stayed March 2013, travelled as a couple

Stayed for three nights. Great large bedrooms with big comfortable beds. The food was really excellent and catered really well for my wife who has dietary issues including cealiac. The staff were great especially in the restaurant. My wife and I had a really fab time and are delighted to recommend The Brehon to anyone thinking of going to Killarney either on business or for pleasure.

It is terrible to think that at times we can take for granted the great beauty than exists within a couple of hours from where we live. For my birthday, my son and his girlfriend gave us a night away in The Brehon, Killarney.

4th December 2013 was one of those glorious sunny winter days, our drive over the county bounds into the Kingdom of Kerry was magical. We headed to Muckross House and had a most glorious afternoon walk along the edge of the Lakes of Killarney.

Time to relax - we arrived at The Brehon with a glowing fire on each side of the foyer and not only a friendly welcome at reception but a pleasant gift voucher from our youngest daughter. The decor in the hotel in dark timber and to a very high standard. Pleasant panorama prints line the corridors which lead to the beautifully appointed bedrooms. The Guinness was good and the dinner was better. We relaxed in the Spa the following morning before an excellent breakfast and our return to reality.

We had a friends wedding here and decided to stay overnight as a treat and we were not disappointed. The Hotel itself was amazing especially as it was decorated for Christmas. The rooms were so spacious I felt I was in an apartment rather than a bedroom..
