Our stay at the Brehon was fantastic from start to finish. The staff were welcoming and looked after us so well. Nothing was a problem. The rooms were lovely, airy, comfortable and very spacious. Food was excellent. The hotel lobby is very inviting and lots of couches to relax on. A thoroughly enjoyable stay and highly recommend it as a destination.

Hotel's Favourite
Once again had a lovely stay in the Beautiful Brehon Hotel. The staff, room, food and cleanliness was exceptional and cannot be faulted. Would definitely recommend checking out the vitality suite and getting a spa treatment when you’re there for the full experience. Will definitely be back for another ultimate relaxation break.

We are very frequent visitors to the brehon. The staff go above and beyond for each guest. The hotel suites are fabulous and the atmosphere is very relaxing. The hair salon on site can be busy so be sure to book in advance, but a very welcome addition to the hotel. The food is superb and a personal favourite of mine is the brownie it is delishes!!!! The hotel is spotless, from the foyer to the lifts to the guest rooms everything is prestine. The location of the hotel is ideal for anyone looking for relaxing and luxury and peaceful with fabulous views and on the doorstep of killarney Town. It is about a 5min car ride into town. We visit killarney about 4 times a year and we only stay in the brehon. Would only recommend this hotel to family and friends. Can't wait to return.

The Brehon was the highlight of my trip! First I can't stress enough how amazing the customer service is. After a missed flight, they were able to simply move my reservation a day without penalty despite the fact that I booked a "non-cancellable" room. We reserved the spa for an hour, what an absolute treat. So many different forms of water therapy, like a roman bath but in Ireland! Room was very large and comfortable. Complimentary breakfast, with a delicious vegan option, was much appreciated. Would 100% stay here again.

Dear jmercednut We were delighted to be able to assist you with your room booking. We completely understand how stressful it can be to miss a flight and were only happy to help in whatever way we could. The Angsana Spa is an exceptional treat which is why I always recommend it to our guests. The aromas alone send you into a sense of tranquil relaxation. Our Head Chef was thrilled to hear your praise for the vegan breakfast. It was a pleasure to share your feedback with the team. Hearing you describe your stay with us as "the highlight of your trip" brought us so much joy so thank you very much for this. We would love to see you again so feel free to contact us anytime.

Dear Lorod2020 It always a delight to see regulars such as yourselves returning to the Brehon, Killarney. Our Angsana Spa is exceptionally popular with both guests and locals and I am glad that you agree it is such a spectacular facility. We are extremely fortunate to be located so close to Killarney National Park and yet only minutes from the town centre. It allows our guests to enjoy a peaceful restful stay yet also enjoy the hustle and excitement offered by Killarney town. Both Helen and Rui are thrilled to see their names featuring on such a public platform as this. You have certainly given them reason to smile so thank you very much for highlighting them. We are already looking forward to seeing you again soon! Kind Regards Caitriona Ashe Office Manager

We fell in love with this hotel three visits ago. The professionalism, courtesy, and friendliness of the staff is the best. Located in one of the best areas of Kilarney town, it is a short walk to town, rental bicycles, Ross Castle, and of course, the national park. We highly recommend this as the unique hotel.

We stayed at the Brehon for a family wedding and on the day of our stay we noticed an error in our booking. We phoned reception straight away and Hannah couldn't have been more help. She understood our queries and concerns and was so helpful and polite and Hannah was able to make the necessary amendments to our bookings prior to our arrival. It made our stay that bit more memorable. Thanks again to Hannah and all the team at the Brehon for such amazing hospitality and an excellent experience.

The Brehon is a lovely hotel we have stayed there a number of times as its so convenient for INEC venue. We make it part of seeing a show it makes for a fabulous compliment to the evening; we have dinner before the show and have a night cap after The staff are really excellent, attentive, friendly, and welcoming. The food is really good. The rooms are well appointed, spotlessly clean and the views lovely. We would strongly recommend a stay.

Was so impressed with this hotel staying there for An Chomhdháil Irish Dancing World Championships. Firstly the cleanliness is very obvious. I’m a coeliac and was so impressed how they catered for my allergy. I lost my jumper and was so happy when they found it. The only suggestion I would make is that I don’t need my towels, dressing gown, soaps etc changed on a daily basis just staying there for two nights as we have to think of the environment.
