We need to use a new language when we talk about Cathrine and Niall’s Breac House. Conde Nast Traveller had a good shot at the language question when it described Breac as “the B&B elevated, reimagined.” Yes, Breac may be a B&B, but it’s not like any other bed and breakfast in Ireland. For a start, the Breac breakfast is a singular and quite extraordinary production – breakfast, elevated and reimagined. And the beds are, likewise, completely re-orchestrated. But what Breac does that is so different is to offer an experience we have described as “sensuous, sensual and spiritual.” Staying here is like staying in a work of art, which is exactly what this house achives as a design totality: Breac is a work of art. And Cathrine and Niall complete this work through their quiet, gracious hospitality, and through their meticulous good taste, meaning that we have works of art within a work of art. The effect is utterly singular, and whilst Breac has featured in every glossy style, design and travel magazine, nothing can prepare you for just how special a destination this is.
