“Cahernane and Killarney”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

My family recently returned from Killarney, Ireland and did stay at the Cahernane house. Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! The food was great and the staff was greater. Everything we imagined this wonderful house to be was all that and more. Trips into Killarney were a joy as all the taxi drivers were helpful and courteous. Several restaurants we dined at were really good. Highly recommend Salvadors in town along with the Plaza Bar and Grill. Danny Mann's Pub was a wonderful experience. Our Ring of Kerry Tour was breathtaking. Ross Castle and Muckross House are must see tours. We took a jaunting car over to Torc Waterfall and it is beautiful. Overall our impression of this trip was that the people made it special. Everyone from bus drivers, bartenders and store clerks were all really good people.

Room Tip: Ground floor for obvious reasons as the opportunity to walk out the patio door into the beautiful ya...

My room mates from college (3 of us) toured the west of Ireland over Easter break and literally got into Cahernane House Hotel at the last minute. The staff could not have been nicer and the accommodations were beautiful. The rooms are large and comfortable and so are the bathrooms. The setting is lovely and the location perfect. We went down to the Cellar Bar for a drink then had dinner in the dining room and it was all top notch. We'll be back!

We were grateful to be able to stay here 2 nights during our stay in March 2013. the rooms were clean, and quiet. the basement bar was warm and cozy after a long day of driving the ring of kerry we were able to sit at the bar with the fireplace behind us. we wanted to get a head start on the day and declined our complimentary breakfast the 2nd morning and the woman at the desk seemed incredibly offended and convinced me to take some biscuits for the road. it was a very romantic and charming hotel.

Outstanding hotel. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful. The old house was beautiful. The food excellent. The stay here for three nights was the highlight of our trip. The atmosphere was excellent. The views from the hotel of the mountains breathtaking. Located next to a working farm and a national park, wildlife abounded. From our room we saw over 25 deer. We have stayed at four and five star hotels all over but none beat this lovely place. Will stay there again when in Ireland.

Spent last weekend in this hotel and was really impressed by it. The place is so old world and very relaxing, a real old country house ideal to unwind after a day around Killarney. The staff were so helpful and the food was amazing, top quality. We had three children and a baby with us and had a family room, which was really big and ideal for so many of us. The staff were very child friendly and the kids spent most of the day running around the gardens and on the swing. Will definitely be returning back there.

On arrival we were very impressed, we had a room booked through a "living social" offer (got it half price). we booked assigned a "superior" room and got a 4th floor attic room with view of the car park. we decided to use the wifi to look at the pictures of the rooms (same available on ground floor around reception) and saw on the cahernane house web site the pictures of their "standard room" which it was obvious we were put in, we approached the woman at reception and argued with her (she basically said we got a deal we should be happy we got a room). eventually we made it clear we wanted the room they advertised on there web site to be "superior". we ended up with a fab room. be careful here. breakfast was lovely, views are unreal, relaxing large conservatory was leaking(it had bed sheets all over the floor, tennis court was overgrown and in need of attention. i did miss convenience of a pool and gym considering the price of the place i didnt feel happy with whats on offer.

Was looking to get away for a few days in Kilarney for both shopping and relaxing . Hotel was a bit further than I expected out of town . On past reports I seen it was 10-15 mins outside the town . It was a small bit further than that and you would have been very tired by the time you got to town. The hotel has lovely grounds but unfortunately the weather was terrible with rain when we were there . The bathroom was the highlight of our stay with heated floors / towel rails , a jacuzzi bath which was too die for . The restaurant was closed on both nights of our stay . Ate in the bar on the first night - I was happy with my food but my Fiancé had at least one issue with each of the courses - none of them serious or hygiene related just the food on the plate did not match the price or reflect the price paid for the dish. Beds very comfortable and nice wake up call .... cock-a-doodle doooooooooo....
