Arrived on a Saturday afternoon, very nice girl on reception (forget her name) think she was in training absolutely brilliant. Small wait for the room but that was our own fault as we hadn't looked up check in time. The suite was amazing! Completely exceeded expectations.

Booked afternoon tea for a special treat for mother's day unfortunately we were not treated that special, not given much attention had to keep asking for service and one staff could not tell us what we were about to eat. The pate was amazing, everything else was average. First and last time to the Brehon.

Lovely hotel. Impressive lobby, with friendly staff and fire going. Enjoyed the little spa pool, sauna, and stem room. Good restaurant, but wouldn't recommend the bar for food. Great superior room with big bathroom. Staff excellent throughout.

Although the Bar was extremely busy, there was no delay at any time on drinks or food. Bar menu reasonably priced for a first class hotel. Good breakfast available with no delay although the...

I have not actually stayed at the Brehon, but I have partaken of its hospitality on numerous occasions, having eaten at the Danu, the bar, and of course had my hair done by the incomparable Pat O'Neill. The food is just to die for, the service second to none. I have truly enjoyed any time I have spent at the...
