We have spent a weekend in The Brehon in November and our stay was flawless. Their breakfast menu and service is excellent and you couldn't wish for more, so is their bar food selection for the evening in case you don't feel like having dinner in Danú - their amazing restaurant. We've had dinner in the restaurant on Saturday night... More

This was our third time staying in the Brehon and as usual did not disappoint. The Brehon is an exceptional hotel with excellent staff. On this trip we had a family party and were catered for very well, especially by the restaurant staff. We will be returning again!

This hotel should carry 5 stars easily, staff are absolutely fantastic, welcoming, accommodating and just plain happy! We loved the layout, fantastic spacious rooms, every conceivable necessity and spotlessly clean. The bar restaurant served excellent food, everyone from Management down were hands on and couldn't do enough. Breakfasts were first class. The gym was a great call and the steam... More

I travel quite extensively but since I don't drive location of a hotel (or its connection arrangements) is very important to me when I choose where to stay. The Brehon is an ideal combination of comfort and convenience. We didn't opt for the lake view but still the sight of the backyard and the surrounding was pleasing. Room is huge,... More
