The Brehon

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Our stay at The Brehon was completely unexpected. Just the night before, we discovered my partners passport had expired....cancelling our plans to fly out from Dublin airport the following morning (his Birthday!). With dog-sitting arrangements already in place and a few days leave from our own hectic hotelier positions, we decided to take to the road early next morning and head towards the West for a well-deserved break. En-route, we looked up numerous hotels and thankfully stumbled upon the beautiful Brehon. I spoke with a lovely girl named Karen. Being my first point of contact, I was impressed with her well-mannered, helpful nature and booked us in for the night. Although we only booked in for 1 night, this is a very special place. We were welcomed by Ciaran and rarely has anyone in a hotel impressed us so much. He was warm, helpful, chatty, natural and charming and made us feel 'at home' from the moment we arrived. We had dinner in The Danú, their fine dining restaurant. The service here was impeccable (special thanks to Canadian Kelly & Polish Michael), their Vegan/Vegetarian Menu simply perfect and the food was excellent. Yes, my partner was a little bashful after our waitresses rendition of 'Happy Birthday', (my request! )....but I could tell he was secretly delighted ;) And after a couple of expressotini's, our passport disaster slowly faded away... The whole place has a lovely 'good vibes' feel about it with funky fireplaces, shiny surfaces and shaggy rugs in every room. The bedrooms are absolutely out of this World. And the Spa.....WOW. Working in the hospitality business myself, at a Relais & Chateaux hotel, with standards difficult to beat; I must say The Brehon & their 5 star Staff, such as Ciaran surpassed all of our expectations and completely turned a bad situation into a blessing in disguise. We would highly recommend.

Once again we visited The Brehon for 1 night. We had a lovely time. All the Staff were fantastic. The Angansa Spa is so tranquil and very relaxing. Breakfast is 'the Best' and one will not be hungry for the rest of the day. We can't wait for our next experience there.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Brehon Hotel the staff the courtesy shown to the visitorshors is brillant second to none. The Hotel has a fantastic view over Killarney National Park. It is located just outside the town and it is a short journey by taxi or by the Hotel shuttle bus. It is a very comfortable hotel and the rooms are a lovely size we had dinner and breakfast in the hotel and both were exceptionally good. I would highly recommend this hotel to any visitors it is four star. The biggest plus for this hotel is the staff and how pleasant and helpful they are. You will not regret a visit.

Really nice, upmarket hotel just on the outskirts of Killarney, recommend a car. Room was large and offered really very good views, really very good. Excellent spa with a good pool, lots of different areas and the Kubeldouche is a must - and really nice restaurant attached to the hotel. Staff were exceptionally friendly and useful, helping point us in the right direction. Walk into town was about 25 minutes and there was a motorbike rental at the back of the hotel in the summer months. Great hotel to base yourself at to explore the Ring of Kerry, would recommend to anyone.

My husband and I recently stayed here and we were not disappointed. The hotel was just beautiful. Really clean and cosy, with its relaxing fireplaces that makes it feel so homely. There's lovely views of the mountains and only 5 minutes drive to town. The pool and vitality suite were amazing and the spa offers a range of fabulous treatments. We really cant wait to come back and stay here again.

My teenage Dtr and I stayed for 5 days and could not have been more pleased. The service was excellent. We had several friends also staying at this hotel and they were always happy to accommodate us. We would definitely stay here again.

The Brehon is a beautiful hotel have enjoyed my stay here any time I've visited. The service is very good. The rooms are lovely and spacious and have slept very well anytime I've stayed here. Afternoon tea is lovely as well. The food is lovely thoroughly enjoyed their breakfast there! Love their pain au raisin! The Spa facilities are very good I thoroughly enjoyed the Jacuzzi/Pool. Spa treatments are lovely too. I like the modern feel to the hotel. Its a convenient drive from Killarney town and on-route to nice sight seeing spots. Its within a short walking distance to the INEC.
