The Brehon

Appropriately enough, as it is so close to the Irish National Events Centre (INEC), everything at this large five-storey hotel, conference centre and spa is on a grand scale - and, while some may find the exterior a little overpowering, most would agree that the contemporary interior matches the official description of ‘tasteful splendour’.

Everything seems larger than life and the design, decor and furnishings of the public spaces are striking, and feature some interesting modern art and sculpture. 

Although the contemporary furnishings in public areas quickly show signs of the heavy wear and tear that they're subjected to, they have recently been refurbished, giving the hotel a fresh new feel again.

This Killarney Hotels house style continues through bedrooms and suites, which are extremely comfortable, with air-conditioning as well as more usual features, and luxurious marble bathrooms with separate shower and bath. The restaurant is airy and bright, and a wide ranging breakfast menu is offered.

The hotel takes pride in its spa: developed by the Banyan Tree Spa, it is Europe’s first Angsana spa and based on holistic Asian healing customs.

Conference facilities include four meeting rooms and a large function space, which is also available for weddings.      

Conferences/Banqueting (250/200); free broadband wi/fi; business centre. secretarial services; Rooms 123 (4 suites, 5 junior suites, 30 superior, 3 family, 7 for disabled, all no smoking); children welcome (under 3s free in parents' room, cot available free of charge, baby sitting arranged).
