I stayed at the Cahernane House hotel for a wedding. The house is beautiful, and the gardens are even better. The views out of our back window were stunning. The room was very large and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom had heated floors. We heard quite a lot of noise from our room on the first night, but that's... More

Dear MayalRob, We really appreciate you taking the time to send this lovely review of the Cahernane House. The hotel is indeed beautiful and steeped in history of the Herbert Family. Fortunately when Henry Herbert built the house, he chose an extremely picturesque spot to do so. We are so grateful for the unspoilt views from the hotel. I'm glad... More

Can't imagine a better place to stay! Comfortable and large rooms, beautiful grounds, great staff. We didn't want to leave this property, it was best place we stayed in Ireland. The location is perfect. It's a short drive (5 minutes) into town from the hotel and there is parking in the town. We were glad we didn't stay in town... More

Dear Billzimlinghaus, Thank you for your fantastic feedback on the Cahernane. I know many guests feel as you do in that while we are close to town, you do feel like you are a million miles from anywhere once you leave the main road from the town up our driveway. Our tranquil and leafy setting is aimed at those who... More

Stayed at hotel when travel agency messed up our reservations at another hotel in town. Accommodations were excellent and the staff very helpful. Hotel currently undergoing some renovations, recently purchased by new owners but would definitely stay here again. Enjoyed it very much.

Driving up the tree-lined drive, our whole family was one big "Oh my gosh!" - and that included 2 travel weary teens! Cahernane House was the favorite hotel for us on our 10 day trip. The setting is lovely, and the building is just gorgeous. (It reminded me a lot of Muckross House, just down the road, which we had... More

Dear M_C_Mom New Jersey, Thank you for your wonderful review and I am delighted to read that The Cahernane House was the highlight of your trip to Ireland. We have indeed a strong connection to Muckross House in that both estates were owned by Herbert Families in the 18th & 19th Century. I hope that you and your family will... More

From check in to check out the staff were fabulous. The attention to detail was great. The rooms were comfortable and you actually felt like you were guest at a Country Manor. I would recommend this if you want a comfortable stay away from the city.

We made our reservations a while back and the hotel appears to have been sold since then. The drive up to the hotel is beautiful. The common areas are nice. Our rooms were both very large and clean. However the hotel lacked most modern conveniences, including food. The hotel did email us in advance regarding the closure of its restaurant,... More

To start, the Hotel messed up our reservation...we had booked and were confirmed in the Muckross Suite only to find on arrival it was occupied. We had to settle for a room in the main house, which while somewhat charming, wasn't what we expected. The second night they were able to move us to our suite. Unfortunately, this suite was... More
