This is an amazing venue for a wedding. We received a very professional service from the first meeting we had with Sharon Devine. That first encounter was the main factor for us choosing the Brehon as our wedding venue. Sharon provided a very clear picture of what the Brehon could offer by way of a

wedding reception. After we had booked our wedding date with the Brehon, we were provided with all the necessary information/details regarding the local suppliers (entertainers, church music etc) which we found very beneficial to us.

We really enjoyed the menu tasting - the staff looked after us exceptionally well throughout & the food was outstanding.

All communication from Caitriona Ashe was both extremely helpful and done with a very high level of professionalism.

The wedding day itself went so well - everything was organised to perfection. All we had to do was show up on the day. We were delighted with the layout of the room, the floral arrangements, the drinks reception & canapes went down a treat with our guests. The food was outstanding and up to five star A La Carte standard. Every small detail was carefully managed by Caitriona Ashe, especially given all the additional requirements during the pandemic, and Caitriona was always flexible & friendly in her approach, which made it very easy for us.

Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the wedding and many spoke of the excellent way the Brehon managed the whole event.

We were delighted to have booked the wedding car at the Brehon and the driver did a wonderful job on the day.

The availability of an on-site hair & beauty salon proved invaluable. It was most convenient for our bridal party on the day.

The bridal suite was spacious and luxurious - a lovely hamper was delivered to the room.

Congratulations to all the staff and management for making our wedding day so special & for doing a superb job in organising this memorable event for us.

We held our reception in the Brehon hotel the weekend before Christmas 2019. We live abroad but I am originally from the area so I knew the Brehon hotel well. Catriona and all the wedding staff were so easy to communicate with, especially by email which was fantastic. No request was denied no matter

how annoying. We had several people with dietary requirements and severe allergies and all was easily managed and planned for in advance. The day itself was seamless, the food fantastic and everything arranged for; the wedding team at the Brehon (particularly Catriona) were complete professionals and an absolute pleasure to work with. A strong recommendation is that both my sisters also held their receptions at the Brehon hotel. Many of our guests were non-locals and also spoke very highly of the accommodation and spa at the hotel and plan to return in the future for a holiday. Keep up the good work, we can not wait to return!

We viewed several hotels when planning our wedding and from the minute we walked through the front doors of the Brehon we knew we had found the perfect location.

Not only did the lobby of the hotel look amazing but the staff were extremely pleasant too. We met with Sharon the wedding sales

manager and she couldn't have made us feel more at ease and welcome. We were given a tour and shown all the amenities before being offered complimentary tea/coffee. We quickly made the decision that this was the ideal place for our wedding.

From that point on we were continuously updated on any deadlines which were upcoming and any requirements we might have missed or not considered. This helped us to be as prepared as possible. This attentiveness and attention to detail ensured that we were always at ease. We also knew that any questions we had could be asked and a quick response was always received.

A couple of days before the wedding circumstances around the country changed but we were informed quickly of any changes which needed to be made so as to lessen the pressure on us.

The day of the wedding couldn't have gone off more brilliantly. Caitriona and Sophia were excellent and very patient and professional. We were able to feel relaxed and they understood situations and offered us a few minutes to regather before the meal.

The meal itself was amazing and left everybody thoroughly impressed. In spite of a delay in serving (a fault on our side due to us over-running elsewhere) the food was still cooked perfectly.

Each and every person in attendance at our wedding had a fantastic time and could not praise the hotel, food, rooms and staff highly enough.

The suite itself was spacious and had everything you would need. We received a complimentary basket with a newspaper on the day of our wedding and a bottle of Prosecco which was a really nice touch.

We would have no hesitation in recommending the Brehon to anybody planning their wedding. The staff are professional and under

The Brehon as a wedding venue is nothing less than superb! We got married and had our wedding reception there in September 2019. During the venue planning stage of the process I visited The Brehon for an initial meeting to understand the amenities available. I was greeted by their dedicated wedding

coordinator, Caitriona and hotel sales manager, Sharon, who had recently had her own wedding there. The meeting was excellent – I was given a personal tour of the drink reception areas (can either be indoor on the mezzanine or outdoor on the patio depending on the unpredictable Irish weather). Then we moved onto see the options for the wedding banquet suite which could hold up to 220 people. The room is very spacious and offers all the required amenities (dedicated bar, band space, large dancefloor, dedicated toilet access etc). The hotel is a 4 star and the décor is very impressive – creating the feeling of a 5+ star experience. The hotel also offers a virtual reality tour so that you can see how the room would look completely laid out, including multiple versions of table arrangements and decoration. Additionally, The Brehon offers an in-house salon which is ran by Pat O’Neill. I met with Pat, who is an absolute character and gentleman. Pat explained how the day would run and what treatments he offered. Next, I discussed in detail the 3 wedding packages offered by The Brehon which provided an expansive choice of food and course options, catering for any budget. The topic of accommodation was a crucial aspect for us as we needed to cater for guests from overseas and Caitriona laid out the option of holding a block of hotel rooms for the wedding weekend so that guests could have priority access to room bookings in this busy seasonal period. Additionally, we had 95 overseas guests who came a week ahead of the wedding – so Caitriona arranged for our guests to have access to booking The Gleneagle Apartments which slept 5+ guests which are situated a mere 150 yards from the Brehon Hotel. The apartments provided 2 separate bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a large living space with a fully equipped kitchen for cooking. The Gleneagle is a sister hotel to The Brehon and so this made for a very affordable option for guests looking to enjoy the beauty of Killarney for more than just the wedding ceremony. This really created an image of The Brehon as a destination wedding venue for us. At all times during this meeting, I was made to feel very comfortable and welcomed by Caitriona (being offered complementary tea and a snack). Taking all of the above into consideration, my wife and I chose to go with The Brehon. Having decided to go with The Brehon as our wedding reception venue, now started the planning of our wedding. The Brehon team were excellent in this regard – Caitriona was our main point of contact, but when needed Sharon (Wedding Sales Manager) and Maurice (Hotel operations manager) assisted to support. Caitriona provided an initial checklist which gave a timeline of when we should complete certain tasks for the wedding. Additionally, Caitriona provided a recommended supplier list for wedding cake, church music, wedding bands, wedding decoration, photographers etc. This was extremely helpful as we were planning a wedding with me living in London and my wife in Texas. To ensure that we were on track for the wedding, Caitriona held multiple calls with us and provided clarity on any questions we had. We visited Caitriona for a one to one meeting twice in the process – in December 2018 and May 2019. This provided excellent assurance that The Brehon was going to be able to deliver the wedding event of our dreams. During our December visit, we were offered a discounted room rate to allow us to experience the hotel. This was very helpful to understand the amenities that our guests would be offered. The breakfast was buffet style and had a wide variety of options. The room we stayed in was very comfortable with all the amenities you expect from a luxurious 4-star hotel. Additionally, during this visit we were given a tour of the two wedding suite options – one being traditionally styled and the other being a more modern design. We were very impressed with both, going with the modern design for the night of the wedding and the night after so as to not feel rushed to pack the next morning. During our May visit, we had a menu tasting which was complementary with our package. Caitriona had warned us to come hungry and she wasn’t wrong. We were given full portions of each of our menu choices so that we could make an informed choice of what to put on our menu for our guests. We decided to go with the lamb shank as our main course and it was sensational – falling off the bone. Initially, I had been eager to have steak on the menu but the lamb was too good to look past. Additionally, from an operational aspect – serving lamb shank versus steak would be far easier to ensure consistent quality during service. A key aspect which my wife wanted to understand was where her and her bridal party could get ready the morning of the wedding. To facilitate this, Caitriona arranged for room 105 to be reserved for the bridal party. This room is adjoined to Pat O’Neill’s salon and meant that the ladies could come and go during the morning between getting their hair styled and most importantly, they were out of the sight of wedding guests and the public. This was truly an amazing option to have and the bridal party enjoyed breakfast on the mezzanine right outside Pat’s salon – resulting in a very calm, relaxed and enjoyable experience for both the bride and the bridal party. As we drew nearer to the wedding date, smaller details needed to be decided on. One of which was transportation to and from the hotel to the church and photographs afterward. Caitriona offered the hotel courtesy car – a top spec 2019 Audi A6 and driver free of charge as a gesture of gratitude to us. This ended up being amazing, the car looked great and our driver Eoin was excellent. Our photographers wanted to take us to the golf club to capture the scenery and Eoin happily obliged, ensuring we had chilled water in the car to keep us cool, calm and collected. The day itself went extremely well. We had a 4pm wedding in St. Mary’s cathedral which meant that we had a very quick turnaround for meal service for the hotel. We had multiple discussions with Caitriona and Maurice who between them delivered a seamless drinks reception and dinner service. We were given a “first look” at the room before guests were brought into the room, during which Maurice provided us with a warm snack to keep us going – again amazing attention to detail. The following morning, following a late night sing song in the residents bar until 4am, we were provided with a very special breakfast. We were given a table with a scenic view and presented with champagne, strawberries & cream as a congratulations from the hotel. Additionally, we were given a beautiful gift from the hotel, consisting of two engraved champagne glasses with our wedding date on the glass. Along with this we were given a bottle of champagne and a photo frame which outlined our wedding timeline – from my first visit in October 2018 to the wedding day in September 2019. All in all, the professionalism and quality of service provided by Caitriona, Sharon and Maurice was spectacular. Every need we had was considered and with that, it allowed us to have the wedding of our dreams and memories for a lifetime.

The wedding package was incomparable to the other hotels that we have viewed. Aside from wonderful menu options, their package includes a harpist or a pianist, table flowers, table plans, chair covers, changeable lighting, candy cart and the Moposa App which really helped us with the planning

especially with tracking guest RSVPs. The view is amazing around the hotel and they have huge, clean rooms. Members of staff are warm and very welcoming and would go out of their way to cater to your needs. The chef even cooked me a dinner which was not in the menu anymore. Apparently, I had an outdated menu in the room where I stayed the night before our big day. Our wedding coordinator, Caitriona, was always on top of things, quick to reply and went above and beyond her duty. We'll forever remember her kindness and professionalism. She looked after all the decorations and ensured that all the personal touches we wanted was in place. She kept us on schedule on our wedding day. The Brehon was also very accommodating with our food requests i.e. with our canape options, the bride having a different main course, special food requests from guests and a great children's menu as well. The canapes and the afternoon tea during the champagne reception went down a treat. The dinner was superb! We knew it would be amazing when we had our menu tasting around Easter time this year. Our guests mentioned that there were so much food which was a good complain. Kudos to the chef! The midnight snacks were good as well. The driver of the bridal car whose name we forgot, looked after us well during the photoshoot after the ceremony. We stayed for 2 nights at the Bridal Suite and had an amazing time. We are still buzzing a month after our special day. The Brehon really does live up to their hashtag #LetUsAmazeYou
