Cahernane House Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel itself is magnificent, with so many delightful intimate areas to unwind and relax within, but the staff are what makes this hotel even better. Every member of staff I encountered were smiling, helpful and professional. I would come back to this hotel because the staff ensured my stay was what one would expect from a property of this magnitude. Food was delicious and wine choices were plenty. Well worth making this a definite place to stay on an itinerary.

Everything was ‘right’. Large, squeaky clean, charming rooms with tasteful and period appropriate furnishings in the main house. Equally sizable and luxuriously appointed bathrooms uniquely designed to accommodate each room. The kind staff was always available and happily acquiesced even the most difficult of requests. A quiet, serene location with great access to many of the area’s notable sites. The kitchens on site offer much finer dining than a standard hotel. This is NOT your standard hotel. They will go above and beyond to make your stay the best it can be, and do it all with grace. Would highly recommend this lovely treasure!

The Cahernane House was a true highlight of our trip around Ireland - we didn't want to leave! Upon pulling into the grounds, we immediately fell in love. We stayed in the recently refurbished Carriage House and the rooms were absolutely gorgeous. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. We loved sitting in the back with a bottle of wine, watching the animals. The house is a quick walk into Killarney town. We were so sad when we had to check out. I can't wait to come back.

Loved our stay at Cahernane House! 8 of us enjoyed 3 days at this beautiful Inn. The rooms were inviting, spacious, up to date, comfortable and very clean. I would rate the staff Excellent; offering to assist in any way possible to make your stay memorable. Delicious breakfast with plenty of choices for our whole crew. The location was great for the Ring of Kerry, town of Killarney, and the beautiful Killarney Park. I highly recommend this lovely House for a stay in Killarney!

The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are spacious and wonderfully decorated, the food was excellent and the staff was friendly. I love the bar area in the basement, the woodwork on the stairs, everything was just stunning! I was delighted when we received a real KEY, not a key card (even though Cahernane was misspelled on the brass tag!). Walking into town wasn't too bad, weather permitting. You can see the sheep all along the scenic drive. Such a charming place!

I recently stayed at the Cahernane House for two nights and it was an absolute pleasure. It is a gorgeous property on immaculately kept grounds. There were sheep in the back and you overlooks gorgeous vistas. The location is fabulous for an easy walk into vibrant Killarney. Mary was there when we checked in and she was exceptional and exemplified the warmth and grace of the Irish people in this area. There was lots of cozy rooms and nooks and crannies to enjoy a drink, tea or just sit by the fire. It is a magnificent and high-end property without being snooty or cold. The breakfast was excellent. I would highly recommend this property. Very comfortable beds and room opens out onto the lovely grounds.

This was my second (and first solo) visit to Cahernane House. I’m happy to report that everything is just as wonderful as it was a year ago, and maybe more so. It’s like a home way from home— if your home happens to be a 19th century mansion nestled into a pasture and surrounded by hills, sheep, cows, and fresh, clean air. I cannot believe how particular Cahernane House is about cleanliness. I never saw a day go by that the staff was not cleaning, clearing, polishing, wiping, and straightening. Despite being an old house in a damp area of the country it smells clean and fresh, even on the lowest floors. I also am impressed by the food at Cahernane House. The daily breakfast is full of fresh, appetizing choices, the bar offers upscale and tasty cuisine, and the restaurant! That evening meal is something else! Each course is exquisitely prepared and plated. The flavors are unbelievable in their complexity, and yet subtle at the same time. You dine, whether alone as I did or with others, feeling you’re the only person in the room who matters. I’m not doing the experience justice so I’ll stop now. In any case, there are possibly more conveniently located hotels in Killarney. Their may be hotels that rival Cahernane House’s elegance. But I’m convinced that there is no other hotel in Killarney that can offer such a fabulous total package of a stay. Thank you, Cahernane House, for my lovely time with you.

We had a meal in the formal dining room on the main floor. So glad we did. The meal was inventive and delicious. Service was attentive and charming. The view was overlooking fields with sheep and lambs frolicking and cows. Wonderful advice on Irish whiskies. Beautiful evening. So nice to have such a high quality meal in such a peaceful setting. Be sure to look around at the various rooms with historic touches.

This was a lovely hotel and the staff was so nice! I love that you leave your key with them when you go out. Breakfast was very nice (not a buffet). They really make you feel special here. The grounds and sheep are fun too!

What a treat in store. This is such a beautiful and tranquil place to stay. Accomadation is superb. I stayed in the coach house which has been update superbly. I ate in the cellar and presentation and food fab. The staff were so friendly and most accomadating to our needs.They made us fell so at home especially Mary O Leary.I hope to return some day soon.Anna Dunne
