This didnt happen in Jan 21 I would love to say I had a lovely stay but alas, we stayed here for our wedding nite 27 years ago and I bought a voucher for my husband as a pressie for a night stay plus dinner. When I went to book it I was told sorry you cant you have to stay two nights at weekend! I couldn't due to child care and I explained that wasnt explained to me whe I bought the voucher but it went on deaf ears. Needless to say, we didnt get to stay for our 27 anniversary and we only live 9 miles away..in Balla .very disappointing... and the staff member that dealt with me really didnt care unfortunately.. really wasn't an ambassador for Breaffy House Hotel.

We stayed here for two nights as part of a wedding and had a fab time. Rooms super comfortable and staff, ambiance, food and drink all excellent. The hotel and grounds are also gorgeous with lovely walks around the hotel including well laid out and signposted features to make it fun and interesting. All in super, we'll definitely be back!

Stayed here between Christmas and New Year for a family wedding. Really lovely venue and very well organised. A big shout out to Padraig the Manager on duty on the night of the wedding, he went out of his way to ensure we were well looked after and couldnt do enough for us.
