“Modern hotel......old style hospitality !”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

There is probably more accomodation per square yard in Killarney than in any other town in Ireland.......and not all of it good. Over the years I've had my fingers burned a few times with poor service and inflated prices.In such a tourist hotspot as this it is a most welcome surprise to find somewhere like The Brehon, which delights in old world courtesy, comfort and style all at a very affordable price.
The one word that keeps cropping up in reviews is "spacious" and that is significant. In a world where more and more hotels seem to be designed by accountants with the emphasis on making the most of the smallest space, the Brehon is a real indulgence. The public areas downstairs are open and airy,with high ceilings and even open fires. The bedrooms are equally
comfortable, big beds, lots of space and nicely muted colours in the decor. The bathrooms are smart,modern and spotless. A special word for the staff who have a lovely relaxed way of going about their business efficiently .
I am definitely NOT a fan of the buffet breakfast but I have to admit this was one of the better examples and on my second morning I was delighted to be told that I could order fresh plaice from the kitchen instead of eggs and bacon from the buffet. It was perfect.
All in all a real find. I just would not think of staying anywhere else in Killarney. Full stop!

I stayed here with friends over the Easter break and we were all delighted with our stay. The veryone room was spacious the bed very comfortable. Dinner was varied and well presented, perhaps more variety with the vegetables would have been nice but we thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
Breakfast was excellent! Though the hotel was full everyone was catered for and all was calm...a nice way to start the day.
We enquired re packed lunch as we were on a walking trip bet 15 euro a head seemed over the top so we declined.
A lovely hotel and great value...we will return.

Very nice hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was big and the beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was immaculate and the fittings were excellent - corner bath, separate shower, very good lighting.

Just arrived back from a midweek trip to the brehon hotel in Killarney! Had a wonderful stay! The staff really are second to none! We got engaged on our trip and the staff made it so special for us, they gave us a beautiful bottle of cava to celebrate and a lovely card was left in the room when we arrived back, so very thoughtful and touching! The food was as it was on our previous trip, delicious! Ate in the bar, not the danu restaurant, but hear good reports of the latter! The spa area is beautiful and immaculately clean, didn't partake of treatments this time, did previously and the therapists there are fantastic! Finally the room, we stayed on the fourth floor, view was beautiful, room stunning! Will Definately be back!
