This is a first class hotel the staff are very helpful and friendly the food is first class and the room we had was very clean and comfortable. This break was an overall enjoyable experience. A 10/10
I would definitely have to say that without doubt this hotel is in my top two hotels in the country. The time both myself and my wife spent here on our short was a really enjoyable one so much so we booked a two night stay for later in the month before we left.

The hotel was lovely, the staff were great. Had a meal in the Restuarant and that was quite nice also. Spa was superb, as was the pool and facilities.

The biggest issue I had was with the bar and "afternoon tea". Bar staff could make make a number of drinks on their menu and it took over 35 minutes at one stage to get two cocktails (it was not busy). Afternoon tea was a total washout. Basically no food, no explanation of what the food was, no choice of tea.

I would recommend the hotel as a whole, but I would say stay away from the bar. Head into the town instead.

We stayed 2 nights as part of a CIE Tour group. I was completely taken by the beauty and service of the hotel. Rooms were big, clean and inviting. We had a nice view from the back of the hotel, which was very quiet. Breakfast was great, traditional Irish breakfast each morning. We were fortunate enough to be staying while Celtic Steps was performing right next to hotel. We were able to walk over and buy tickets to this amazing show. This is a wonderful place to stay if visiting Killarney!

I stayed here recently with three other friends. It is very definitely a four star hotel. Room was lovely and large with a lovely view. The breakfast was self service and had a very good selection. We dined each evening there and found the food both in the bar and the dining room very good. All staff were helpful and very pleasant. I would have no hesitation recommending this hotel.

I stayed recently for one night in The Brehon. It is a lovely hotel and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The highlight was certainly the Angsana Spa. The hotel is definitely a good four star but the spa is five star quality and reasonably priced for what it offers. The vitality suite and all are great. Breakfast was very pleasant and the room was a good size with robe and slippers provided. It was no more expensive than other four stars which would not have the same to offer. I would definitely go back.

One of the best hotels I have stayed in. Made extremely welcome from the start, bedroom was fantastic, worthy of 5 star status. Stayed on one of the packages which included room, spa, dinner, cocktails and boat trip- the whole experience was perfect.
