Reviewed 6 July 2014

We arrived in the early evening and were met by a very gracious hostess. Our room was in the original part of the house and was huge with a gorgeous view of the gardens and mountains of Killarney National Park. The jetted tub was great for soothing tired muscles and the heated towels and floors added a nice touch. We choose to eat in the bar and it was a relaxing and delicious experience. The bartender recommended a great wine and was very attentive throughout our meal. After dinner, we enjoyed sitting outside in the back garden and visiting with other guest and enjoying the view. If you are looking for an elegant hotel with charm and history, this is the place for you. If we had known how great it would be, we would have booked a longer stay.

Room Tip: We had room 14 on the second floor and the views cannot be beat!

This was a hotel we were looking forward to. Upon arrival we were met with open arms by the receptionist, who check us in and than took us to our room. Our room was in the original part of the house, which we wanted. After a maze like passage to our room we were greeted with a very large room that contained a couch, two chairs, a desk as well as the bed. This room was huge and we had veiws from two walls, as we were on the corner. Our room number was 18. the bathroom was huge as well. The lighting could have been a little better over the sink, but it was not that big of an issue.

The breakfast room/service and food was excellent as well.

The Cellar bar was nice and cozy. We ate dinner there that was excellent and had a night cap.

The WiFi is flaky and offered only in the lobby area. As more people attempted to use it, it would slow way down.

The hotel itself and its grounds are showing it's age, but it does not detract from our stay.

Recommend to all to stay here for a wonderful evening. Thanks You!

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?
