“Lovely Manor Home--Better than Ashford Castle”
Reviewed 4 July 2012

During our 10-day travels throughout Ireland, we stayed in many fine accomodations but none as lovely as Cahernane House.

From the moment we arrived, we knew our stay would be special and we were not disappointed! The house is beautifully decorated with stunning views of bucloic pastures with sheep and cows as well as the stunning mountains in Killarney National Park. Our suite overlooked the sloping lawn which lead to these pastures and was beautifully decorated in toile and gingham. Our bath had a clawfoot tub and seperate shower with heated floors and was by far the cleanest bath I've ever stayed in. The dining was superb with outstanding service and both breakfast and dinner were delicious. The public spaces were peaceful and cozy with fireplaces that added a lovely ambience thoughout but the sunroom with it's sparkling water feature was our favorite room.

Located just a stones throw from the hustle and bustle of downtown Killarney, Cahernane House is a tranquil haven that is not to be missed! And an added bonus was the cost! We stayed for two nights with two breakfasts, one dinner and bicycle rentals with a picnic lunch in a superior suite for less than the cost of one night in a standard room at Ashford Castle in Cong.

We arrived mid week and loved the large fireplaces and windows with views out onto the mountains.
We were let down however by the noise in the rooms, soundproofing was obviously not considered in the new addition. We were woken by late arriving guests, doors slamming, children running down halls and even the showers in neighboring rooms.
Tv produced a hazy black and white picture (when you're rained in for two days you turn to tv!)
Bed was amazingly comfortable though.
We were disappointed that as a couple we did not manage to secure a window seat at breakfast three days in a row, one day because of a vacant table especially set aside for a non present group of six. Instead directed to a cramped space between a couple with an infant and another with a toddler mistaking the area for a jungle gym.

The staff were all very pleasant. The downstairs bar was a nice respite on our first night saving us a trip into town.

Superb, everything about the place was just exquisite! The decor, the service, and the food, I felt very pampered and taken care of! The room we stayed in had incredible windows which stretched out over about 1/4 of the room, the bathroom had heated floors and a giant bathtub with jets! And I loved having a quiet bar (or at least it was when we stayed there) downstairs to chill out with my boyfriend after dinner and have a few drinks. Oh, and I should mention, we arrived at the hotel at 11am and were served sandwiches and tea by the fire, which was much appreciated as we were quit hungry and tired at that point.

Room Tip: We stayed in the older area of the hotel and loved it. I heard through a friend that the newer part...

We would highly recommend this house hotel.
We made the reservation by e-mail without any problem. This beautiful house is located in its own little quiet park in Killarney. The house is very tastefully decorated. Our superior room (number 31) was very quiet on the ground floor. It was beautiful, big and comfortable with a beautiful view to the inner garden, not to the parking area. The bathroom was nice but the old styled bath to small. Our dinner and breakfast were very, very good. The service was very good and friendly.

Stayed there for a few days and it was a great experience. The staff was knowledgable and friendly, Marian was so sweet, and the food was beyond excellent. I encourage all interested in having a luxuriant stay in southern Ireland to have it at the Cahernane House!

The Cahernane House was simply an outstanding experience and you won't be disappointed. Our room was very large with a seperate living area and walk in closet. Large claw foot bathtub, heated towl racks, and heated floors in the bathroom. You must eat dinner one night and have either the steak or the fish, both were wonderful and reasonable priced if you don't have drinks.

Located very convenient to the town for shopping and other restaurants. Breakfast is good because you can either have the simple buffet or order off a menu.
