“Excellent Hotel, well worth a visit!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

The Brehon is a real 'getting away from it all' hotel. Set very close to the Killarney National Park, the INEC and about ten minutes walk to Killarney town Centre, it has everything you need for a great weekend.

The Spa there is fantastic too.

My wife and I had a wonderful stay in the Brehon recently. We went there for my nieces wedding, which was perfect from start to finish. The room was comfortable and spacious and the staff were very helpful and friendly. We will definately be calling back in the near future. Edel and Denis Burke.

We stayed in a family suite with 2 young children and the room was perfect and a great size. Only reason it wasn't a 5 star rating was the shower in the bathroom was too small (and they had the space to make it bigger).
All the staff in hotel were great. Breakfast and dinner in the restaurant was excellent.
A small distance (a fair walk or a small drive) to the middle of town for dinner and shopping was a drawback.

Beware the suspected drunken horse drawn carriage tour guides. The tour was great, the guide was not great... Repeated everything over and over.

Definitely worth staying here.

We certainly enjoyed our two night stay at the Brehon. The staff was super friendly and the food was excellent. The rooms were above average and very clean, but the bathroom was somewhat unusual in its layout. The shower was mounted on the side wall of the tub, making it a little difficult, but not impossible to take a decent shower. The lighting at the sink was non-existent. The only light was behind you as you faced the sink.

Again, booking on line, we had no idea what we would actually get when we arrived. A truly wonderful three night experience awaited us. The Brehon is large, but the people make it feel small and warm. All the staff from housekeepers to bartenders were friendly and very helpful. Our large, beautiful room was on a corner so we were blessed with a cross breeze and nice views. Clean and comfortable, well serviced room, delicious food and great service on all accounts. What ever the management is doing could set an example for providing superb, warm and inviting service for the industry. If we get back to Killarney this will be where we stay. If I were the Michelin guide it would get a MINIMUM of two stars. Marvelous! Great value!

Room Tip: Try for an upper floor corner room for the breeze and the views.

We stayed two nights here on our tour. From the moment we walked into the entrance we felt comfortable. Fireplaces and sitting areas in the huge reception hall is nice. The staff is very professional and friendly. Our room was awesome. Very spacious and all the emenities to make your stay a pleasure.
It is an easy walk to town ( about 0.6 miles) Close to the National Park ( right out your door and across Muckross Rd.
Highly recommend it to anyone.

beautiful hotel, lovely staff , nice bar.

Had a massage in the spa - very nice. Location is fine, not walking distance but very cheap in a taxi

Bar food was only ok - breakfast was very good. Would definitely stay again
