“Classic Town Square Hotel in Scenic Crossroads”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2009

I stayed here one night (without reservation) while touring with a family of 6; we had two triples. Cahir is a very nice small town; less touristy and more scenic then nearby Cashel. The hotel's location right on the town square within sight of well preserved Cahir Castle (floodlite at night) is particularly nice touristically. Service and food generally was above average. The hotel is a creaky traditional old hotel, but well furnished, maintained, and popular with locals. The rooms were nice sized, furnished, and maintained. The hotel pub was full for a rugby championship game which provided color to our stay, and as indicated, above average food. A bistro offered more elaborate dining. Adjacent the lobby and pub were a couple of classically appointed library style sitting rooms (reportedly internet 'hot', bedrooms were not). I'm an early riser; hotel cleaning staff made a point of offering me tea or coffee there around 6 AM (nice gesture). In the back, a beer garden is available during summer months. I'd recommend this hotel and town as a layover for the tourist traveler.

Arrived at this hotel for a wedding. I really enjoyed my two days at this hotel. There was a lovely bistro with excellent food. The serive from the staff was very good. We were late getting up for breakfast but there was no problem with getting a breakfast late which we should not of been allowed. There was a great band playing the saturday night in the hotle pub. Love the town and the lovely walks.

Highly Recommended

We were looking for a hotel in a small town in County Tipperary.
Drove through Cashel(Rock of Cashel) then on to Cahir. We were planning to return to Cashel for the night but saw this hotel.
Liked the town and walked into hotel along town square. Prices
were reasonable 45euros per person which is average for Oct.
Staff was very helpful and friendly. Check in and out painless.
Lunch was good as was the complimentary Irish Breakfast.
The location was great - a block away from Cahir Castle and on town square. Good parking in back with lovely walkway to castle.
Nice pub with friendly bartender -typical of Ireland. The room was
small for 2 beds, shower and beds clean and comfortable. Several pubs and a very nice inexpensive Italian restaurant a block away. Internet service did not work on my computer @ hotel but there was an internet cafe 1/2 block away.
Cahir Castle tour was nice - the castle grounds lovely and there was a really nice town walk along the river to the Swiss cottage (about a 25 minute walk). I would definitely recommend this and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Cahir House is a hotel in the style of an Old Grand Irish Home. It has beautiful furnishings and is located on the edge of the market square . We stayed 2 nights there in a superb en-suite room with a magnificant 4 poster bed. The breakfast was excellent and there is a lot to see and do in Cahir and surrounding area. Cahir Castle is about 2 minutes walk from the hotel and there is also a lovely walk along the river bank which runs behind the hotel.

Rooms -Clean but too hot.
Service - Friendly and efficient
Food - Well prepared and served with a smile.
Reception - on departing Friendly and efficient
On Arrival . This was the most distressing , contemptable, unfriendly, uncooperative reception possible from any person in any hotel anywhere. There was no attempt made to understand the needs of our party especially to one who was in obvious distress.
Members of our party, friends ,relatives and work colleagues have vowed never to use this hotel again on their regular journeys through Cahir.

I stayed in this hotel for two nights. When I arrived to my room I was met with an overwhelming smell of smoke. As a smoker myself it was like someone had just been in my room smoking.My bed sheet had an unsightly stain on it. The room was unbelievably hot and there was insects crawling around . I found the hotel in general...dirty.The hallways were smelly and dirty. I dont think they have seen a hoover in along time.When I complained to staff they seemed uninterested. My family were refused breakfast at 10.30am even though in the room it states that breakfast is finished at 11am. I would never ever go back to this hotel again .I am utterly shocked that they have 3 stars.
