Bree is a scenic location that has strong historic links with the Gentry. Irish history and literature is pervaded by this once influential aristocratic landowning class. The symbol of their wealth and influence was the mansion, or, Big House, usually located where the surrounding scenery would enhance its appearance. Many fine examples exists throughout the Slaney Region, including Bree. There is plenty in this locality to intrigue and entertain. Golfing, fishing, horseriding and other pursuits are well catered for. A complete itinerary for the visitor is available from the Community Office in the village.
