Just back from a night in the Brehon. Our stay was faultless!! Our accomodation was available on arrival. Check in was prompt and efficient. We enjoyed lunch in the bar and the service was excellent. Rooms were bright, clean and spacious. Breakfast was buffet with lots to choose from. Overall, an excellent stay and I would highly recommend. If only other Irish hotels could take a leaf out of the Brehon's book !!!!

Stayed on the 5th and 6th Jan. Arrived early but was able to check in immeadiately. The Gent on Reception was very welcoming and helpful. The few requests i had made during reservation stage had been organised and the room was lovely and spacious.
We ate in the bar as the weather was too bad to go out. The food was excellent however the service was just ok. The bar staff looked like they did not want to be there! Breakfast was lovely and the staff there were very friendly. Such a contrast to the bar staff! Overall i liked the hotel and will definately be back.

Thank you for your comments. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the accommodation & food here at The Brehon.

I have also duely noted your comment regarding the bar staff and have addressed it with my Bar Manager. They are normally a very enthusiastic team, but may not have been at their best after what was the end of our busiest period of the year. Thank you for letting us know.


Kind Regards,

Sean O'Driscoll

All the staff are wonderfully welcoming from the minute you arrive. We were travelling without the children for a change and so were really looking forward to a grown-up break and the Brehon was a marvellous choice. We'd stayed in the Gleneagle before with the kids and had always looked longingly at the Brehon so this time we decided we'd go for it.

The room was large, luxurious big bed, large bathroom with a separate shower stall and bath tub, large wardrobe area for your clothes, with an iron. The views out the bedroom window were beautiful I was entranced watching the red deer in the national park across the way.

I didn't have any of the spa treatments but felt as if I had because the Vitality suite was amazing. There was this kind of aromatherapy shower that you step into and it gently rains all this fragranced mist on you. The pool has those jets of water that give you a pounding massage. I stayed in here for ages while husband watched the telly.

The breakfast buffet has good selections and then you get menu options such as the full Irish or eggs benedict, I know there was other choices but these are the only two I can rememeber. I had the eggs benedict and it was excellent.

The only thing I'd say is that I'd have liked tea and coffee making facilities in the room. But there was bottled water included.

Stayed in this hotel for the second time recently. On our first visit we had been given a gift of a suite so wondered what the 'regular' room would be like - it was gorgeous.
Enjoyed every aspect of our stay and can't wait for an excuse to go back!

We stayed in the Brehon for 2 nights, and i can't wait to go back again.
The room was bright, clean, spacious and comfortable.
The staff very friendly, helpful and courteous.
The spa was the BEST EVER, excellent treatments, luxury surroundings, lovely staff.
The restaurant was gorgeous for evening dinner and breakfast, tasty menu and very well presented.
The bar was good fun, with live music the night we were there.
The hotel itself is a beautiful building with gorgeous surroundings, it's a real hide away, good for a get away, a real stress buster, and very good value also!!
