We were a group 6 in total for a girls night away. From the moment we arrived we were looked after so well, we were greeted by a lovely receptionist who was so helpful. We were blow away by our beautiful bedrooms so clean big and modern, comfortable bed and great bathroom. We all had a treatment in the spa. Prob the best therapist we ever had. We had a lovely cocktail before dinner at a lovely fire feature, there were many comfy couches near many fireplaces. We had a beautiful meal, the service was superb. The chef went to a lot of trouble for 2 birthdays. We will def be back very soon. Ps great value for money. and didn’t worry about covid. It was so safe

Hotel's Favorite
Once again had a lovely stay in the Beautiful Brehon Hotel. The staff, room, food and cleanliness was exceptional and cannot be faulted. Would definitely recommend checking out the vitality suite and getting a spa treatment when you’re there for the full experience. Will definitely be back for another ultimate relaxation break.

Returned to Brehon again for a long weekend. Rui at reception was very welcoming on arrival. Room was fresh and clean. We enjoyed dinner in the bar one evening and drinks two of the evenings, all of which were lovely. There was also a lovely young lady in the bar, I didn't catch her name unfortunately but she was very pleasant. Breakfast was lovely each morning - no rushing and racing and lovely coffee! We also availed of the spa - staff there are just top class, from reception to therapists. The Vitality Suite was lovely and quite and it was so nice to have the sauna and steam room back open. Great adherence to COVID guidelines. My only one critique was one of the windows in the room was broken and could have done with a good clean with lots of finger prints on it. We will be back again.
