The Cahernane was recommended to me by a tour company representative. The location is great just minutes to the town of Killarney and the national park. The house itself is very quaint and charming with beautiful views. Our room was okay--had to ask to split the beds and when we walked in it wasn't ready even though they gave us... More

Stayed two nights with my wife and daughter in this wonderful manor house. From the moment you enter the door of the manor, you experience a warm ambience from the charm of the home and warmth of the staff. Several seating areas greet you - the library, the sitting room, and garden room all invite you to relax. The room... More

We had, sadly, just a single night at the Cahernane House Hotel staying in a beautiful room with views over the mountains, towards the Killarney Natl Park. This is a wonderful place to stay. We had superb service with all the staff we encountered going out of their way to make our stay as tremendous as possible. Merilyn, the manageress,... More

What a wonderful experience. Our room was spacious with King bed and beautiful sitting area. Merilyn (sp?) in reception was so kind and lovely, she and all the staff did everything possible to make you feel at home & welcome. We had dinner in the dining room and it was also 5 star. The public rooms are authentically decorated and... More

My wife and I spent five nights at The Cahernane. From start to finish the staff were helpful in every possible way. We had a first class room with a huge bed with fantastic views of fields with the mountains in the background. The hotel has a number of charming lounges which are full of antiques. The breakfasts were always... More

I see others here found the room décor a little tired, but I thought it was perfect. The room was clean and spacious. The hotel... More

It's not easy planning a driving tour of Ireland for 14, when you know a good location, a great meal and secure parking is required. Any we were very pleased with the Cahernane House, although the rooms looked slightly tired they were comfortable and spacious and we had an excellent dinner and full Irish for breakfast - all served with...

At the end of a tree-lined lane, you know Cahernane House will be a great place to stay. Our room opened to a balcony overlooking a pasture of sheep and cows. The room was large and comfortable. Excellent breakfast. Cozy public rooms. Great restaurant. We spent three nights using the Cahernane House as our staging point for western Ireland.
