Beautiful hotel with very friendly staff, food was also very good. Luxury accomadation, well worth a visit.
Had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay, found all staff very friendly and accomodating. Would def recommend this hotel and will be back
The only complaint about this hotel was on asking for a bottle of water from the bar which cost 7.50, fairly overpriced considering wasnt even a litre.
It was really big, our room was huge clean and nicely decorated, the staff were very friendly and the food was lovely, The agsana spa is a real treat, i got a facial and it was so professional, and hotel guest have use of the vitality suite.
quality and space of rooms
Great room, very clean. Staff unobtrusive but helpful when needed. Alcohol available from the bar in room after closing which was good as I was at a wedding.
Service could have been a little quicker when ordering food from the bar, also a few orders were wrong when served.
The Brehon was a very welcoming hotel. All staff were very friendly. Rooms were of a good size and the bathroom was bigger than in a lot of other hotels. Food was excellent. Good location, about 15 mins from town centre. Overall we had a pleasant stay and would highly recommend this hotel.
I enjoyed the comfort of the Brehon and the staff were friendly and prompt.
For the money charged, I thought it was a pity thst there was no residents bar which really adds to a wedding. Also, when we were paying, the receptionist printed out an A4 page as a receipt, I think being environmentally friendly is important.
Young professional couple stayed 3 nights here. It is about a 20min walk to the town centre. Very nice staff made us feel very welcome. Had dinner in the hotel the first night my girlfriend said it was her best meal ever! We didnt get a chance to use the spa and the breakfast was very nice and filling. A great hotel overall. We will stay there again.
I liked the very relaxed environment at the hotel.
Loved the friendly staff who were very efficient. The room was spacious and had everything you could want. The spa and vitality suit were fantastic. I must say the staff in the spa were exellent.
The sun was out in Irreland for a change but there was no outside seating which would have been lovely. The prices in the Danu resteraunt for dinner was a bit to much for what we got. Food not consistantly good
Good hotel with good atmosphere and public spaces. Excellent rooms (deluxe), showers and beds. Friendly and helpful check in staff. Spa an added benefit and not too busy.
Breakfast was relatively ordinary, poor choice of pastries, mass produced bread. Having half of the breakfast buffet next too the entry where you waited to be seated made the whole experience too busy on your first impression. Being put down in the "cellar" space with the TV on the Saturday night, when we ate in the bar wasn't great. Other spaces came free but they didn't suggest to move us.
1. Very warm welcome by both staff members 2. The room - clean, spacious and elegant (220) 3. Not having to pay for each drink at the bar, you could relax and settle your account as you were leaving. 4. The lobby is very relaxing 5. The Breakfast was lovely and nice that you could serve yourself. 6. The Spa was very relaxing
1. Only found out on arrival that no kids in the pool (to be fair we could go to your sister hotel next door) 2. After bringing Sterilisers and food etc we found out that ye had it all on site. This is not a dislike really as very impressed ye catered for this but annoying we did not know. 3. The Bar Menu was not wow but the food was good. For such a seriously good hotel the menu could slightly improve. 4. Sitting near the Breakfast entrance the customers were very slow to be seated as the staff were brining tea/coffee to tables but we kind of felt their frustration. Some customers just got a table themselves. Nobodys fault but it could be managed better.
The staff were very welcoming. Having checked in on Monday, the receptionist remembered my room number Tuesday without even a hint, and newspapers were kept for me on Wednesday. The peace and tranquility of the Vitality Suite was just what we needed.
Was there for our 6 year anniversary with my girlfriend we both enjoyed and would visit again.
Despite the hotel being very busy, the staff were extremely professional and friendly. We were attending a wedding and where rooms were not yet ready, the staff offered the services of the SPA changing area to facilitate those who needed to change for the wedding. 24 hour room service was very efficient. Breakfast ordered to the room the following day was piping hot, which was an added bonus. Bedrooms were spacious and well laid out. Would definately recommend the Brehon.
