The Brehon is patronized by buses of tourists and the atmosphere in the restaurant reflects the sheer number of people with a cacophony of noise that is less than conducive to a nice meal. Our waitress kept disappearing and forgot not only my husbands wine but then later in the meal, my tea. She apologized profusely and explained she was... More

We ate here during a recent stay at the Brehon. We were shown to our table and brought some bread and water. We decided to skip starters and ordered the steak for mains which was delicious. The veg that accompanied it was just as tasty. I had a cocktail with the meal - a cosmopolitan - which was delicious. Our... More

Part of the Brehon Hotel which itself is very nice. A very nice leisure centre also. The Danu is the bar of the Hotel. It's open plan on two levels. Traditional style decor. Bar menu is quite extensive and the food is good. The staff are very friendly. Well worth a visit if staying in Killarney.

We had the set 3 course menu for Eu25 (there was a 4 course menu for around 40 but my sister doesn't like fish so we went for the other menu). Excellent main course of chicken with beautifully prepared vegetables and jus. Desserts were a selection of 3 types. My sister's starter of melon was light and well presented; my... More
