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!
