      Loved the authentic feel of this lovely old house - magnificent views of the garden and surrounding fields with sqeaky floorboards but very modern bathroom. Very nice stay.

      Recommended

      This place was great... they've done a really nice job of infusing this 19th century manor house with modern appointments. It's near killarney but feels very secluded (you reach it via a long, tree-lined drive). Our room was spacious and comfortable. The staff was helpful. The restaurant was also excellent--the best meal we had in Ireland. No complaints.

      Excellent

      from

      We stayed here for three nights during our trip to Ireland. This was by far the best place we stayed. Our room in the new addition was very spacious and clean. We had beautiful views from our balcony. We were even given wash (face) cloths every day in the bathroom. The staff at his hotel were very gracious and helpful. After some of the truly awful places we stayed in during this trip, Cahernane House was a welcome relief. I wish we could have stayed here all 15 nights of our trip.

      Worth it!

      from

      This is the best place we stayed during our visit to Ireland. The peaceful setting was a welcome relief from the hustle and bustle of the Killarney region. We stayed in the newer part of the property in a triple room and couldn't have asked for more. The bathrooms are large and feature a claw footed tub for soaking as well as a shower. The pastoral setting out our balcony was something that you picture when you think about Ireland. We went to sleep each night listening to the soft baa of the sheep. This was also the cleanest place I have ever stayed! The staff was constantly shining and dusting and keep everything in top order. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to treat themselves to a beautiful stay!

      A very nice place

      Stayed at the Cathernane in September of 03 and coming back in May of 04. It is like staying in your own manor house if you were fortunate enough to own one. If you have need of anything you have but to ask, otherwise the very nice staff leave you alone. The food is very good, the location is superb, the rooms are very well appointed and the public places, living room, library, another living room, dining room and bar are spendid, as I said like your own house.

      Hidden Treasure

      from

      The Cahernane was the best find of my recent trip to Ireland. Hidden down a long and leafy drive the hotel is a fine example of early 1800s architecture, the same period as Mucros House itself! The hotel is like a trip back to a more elegant time. Highly recommended.

      Manor House Retreat

      from

      Magnificent country house with a relaxing ambience and surroundings.

      The hotel was peaceful and exactly what we needed for a relaxing break.

      The staff were all very pleasent and so helpful and the food fantastic.

      It was undoubtedly one of the the best holidays we've had.

      Romantic little getaway!

      from

      Arrived back from Cahernane last night after spending 2 wonderful nights there. Arrived Friday after work to wonderful open fire in the lobby which is small - beautiful furniture - greeted by friendly receptionist who escorted us to our room - standard room - I expected standard but it was far from standard I have to say. Beautiful furniture - massive bed - 2 doors out to a little patio overlooking the mountains and fields - robes and slippers supplied - 2 seater couch - armchair - writing bureau - tv nicely hidden in beautiful piece of wooden furniture - all beautifully decorated in the old style. Dinner in the restaurant was amazing and I am fussy about food - definitely worth trying. Ordered room service breakfast (latest delivery 10am which is great) - did same following morning and we didnt check out till after 2pm and no phone call asking us how soon we intended leaving either!! Sat. night got taxi to town 5 each way organised by reception - only few mins from town. Definitely going back. Dont know how previous review I had read about accom being so bad and staff being none existent - not even a thread of truth in that review from what I experienced. Dont be put off - it's cozy..romantic..and yet so central so that if you need night life you can certainly take it or leave it.

      Excellent manor house hotel with luxurious bedrooms and open fires. Really enjoyed the cellar bar and exquisite food in the restaurant. One of the highlights of our trip. Could have spent all day looking out the bedroom window at the deer and landscape of the National Park. Will definitly return.

      a terrific stay open fires four different drawing rooms a hotel with character, rooms are overlooking the mountains and the national park we had a jacuzzi bath, tv and dvd in our room.we felt like lord and lady of the manor, staff were most helpful and efficient 24 hour room service and the food was unbelieveable. we would definitely recommend the Cahernane for a relaxing holiday. we'll be back.

      A Perfect 10

      from

      This is THE hotel in Ireland. It is expensive, but worth every penny, umm euro. First, the location is a good place to embark on the ring of Kerry. It is just out of downtown Kilarney. The long driveway leads to a picturesque estate and structure with ivy climbing up and covering the walls. The lobby is impressive. The room we stayed in had matching wallpaper, curtains and pillows (Very tastefully done). My wife was extatic when she saw the cast iron tub. There was also a standing shower available. The final touch was the heated floors in the bathroom. Real class. Breakfast was great as well. The only negative was a shower drain which did not empty the water in the shower quickly enough leading to a small pool. Even so, this hotel gets a perfect 10.

      ... get DRESSED UP and they get their drink on! Great entertainment!) An older couple with a male buddy in tow ask if they can share the booth. Actually, we assume that's what they ask, because, we can't understand a word this guy says. We welcome them into the empty seats, and they sit closely to each other far away from us, clearly uncomfortable with taking our space. Some spontaneous moment occurs where Norm (closest to them) raises his arm ...

      We spent two nights in Kilkenny, and enjoyed a slower paced day exploring the town and castle.

      Time to return to Armagh, via Wicklow, where we visited the haunted gaol! Not so haunted in the day time - however we did learn a lot about convicts as this was a major port for ships to be sent to New Holland!

      What a week!
