We really can not say enough to praise Breaffy House. It is such an ideal location for a wedding. It is easy to find yet feels so private and secluded. The amazing exterior of the hotel is matched by the warm and luxurious lobby. The staff, in particular Maureen and Denice, are extremely helpful and generous with their time. We...
