“Lovely visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

Cahernane is a lovely old hotel! It's not as polished as some but suited us to a T. The reception and staff were wonderful. The oatmeal at breakfast was the best ever, dinner was very nice and the Cellar Bar was perfect for a night cap. We loved using one of the salons for a quiet visit by the fire. The grounds in this quiet setting are really beautiful. Enjoy!

Stayed at this beautiful house with my three kids. We got two rooms and they were huge. Rooms 21 and 22. Big claw footed tubs. Windows opened and air blew through. Sitting room area with TV. Cellar bar was warm and cozy. Breakfast was very good with French toast and pancakes as well as traditional fare. The wifi is only in downstairs area and signal is weak but really this was only complaint. Beds comfortable. The staff was superb. I had a flat in Ring of Kerry and the lady in front office called to check, told them I was coming and I was in and out in 20 minutes. Great location. We went to Molly Darcy for dinner. Delicious with Irish music and dancing too.

We stayed at Cahernane last week and absolutely loved the peaceful bucolic setting. Kerry cattle, red deer and sheep outside our window. Heated bathroom floor. Staff couldn't be more caring and responsive to our every need. Would definitely recommend if you want to get away from the busy city life and stresses of daily living. The food was fantastic! Great breakfast buffet with hot entree orders that gave us a great start to a day full of walking, biking or hiking.

We stayed in this beautiful old world manor house recently. Reception was warm and welcoming , food was wonderful, staff could not have been more helpful or pleasant . Our room had a magnificent view across green acres where we could see deer and sheep. The room itself was spacious and well appointed. We could not wish for anything else and would recommend it to anyone who like to indulge in a taste of Irish manor life.

From the time you pull into the long drive up to the Cahernane House, every nerve endings your body starts to relax. Our odom overlooked a meadow where we saw at a distance a heard of cattle against a beautiful national park background. Breathtaking.

Oh, and the accommodations are spacious, and truly charming. Clean, comfortable bed and an attentive staff.

The only negative I can offer is the Wifi is limited and unreliable. But then again, why am I on Wifi while on holiday?

We had our wedding at The Cahernane Hotel in September, this hotel is absolutely fabulous. We had a small wedding party of about 26 people and which was the perfect size for our party. We had our civil ceremony performed in the back conservatory overlooking the mountains and lake. We went on a trip to the gap of Dunloe for drinks and small snack and when we returned the dining room had been coverted into an amazing dinner reception room. Decoration was perfect and kept to a minumum with candelabras and flowers on each table, as this is an original 17th Centurty Manor house the property spoke for itself with ornate framed original oil paintings on the walls and antique furniture and ornament adorning the rooms..just stunning. After dinner we had our band play in the drawing room which was also fabulous, there was a mini bar set up in the other liivng room off the main drawing room which was also wonderful with the same decor which is throughout the property, some of the wedding party spilled out into the foyer where there was an open orginal fire with stags head above it. After the band finished we returned to the cyrpt bar where our DJ Paddy Fagan played excellent tunes to everones delight, the cypt is an old converted wine cellar which has cobble effect floors and ceiling very gothic-esque style small and very cool, there is a billards room adjacent also which can be used for drinks and games. We had the entire venue to our disposal and no curfew for our DJ so we danced and laughed unti the early morning sun rise. The staff are fantastic and attended to our every need. I will return to stay once more before I emmirgate to the US. I would highly recommend a stay at this Hotel. Dont expect your wifi to work all the time, and dont expect fast broadband and the most modern electronic services ike that as this is located in a far away part of Ireland, and part of the charm is escaping my iphone and laptop and enjoying the peace and quiet of country living. Fabulous hotel for a wedding or weekend stay.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the original suite room, lovely :-) Also a room at the back overlooking the mountains...

Have stayed in Cahernane at least 5 times in past 4 years. What can I say, it's totally different to any other hotel in Killarney. It really is like stepping back in history and getting to experience Killarney origins of the Herbert family. We have gotten to know Mary in reception, who is a real asset to the hotel and has very kindly upgraded us on a few times. Myself and my girlfriend really enjoy the place, some other places in Killarney are more modern and up to date with wifi etc. But u don't go here for wifi or plasma televisions in bedrooms. It's about it's classic charm. The breakfast is the absolute best in Killarney. Ask to stay in old part of hotel!! Hope to return: Adrian & Kathryn:)
