Cahernane House Hotel

This hotel is in a lovely quiet location, convenient to Killarney town, yet - thanks to a long tree-lined avenue and parkland which stretches down to the water - it has a charmingly other-worldly atmosphere.

The original house was built by the Herbert family, Earls of Pembroke, in the 17th century, and accommodation is divided between fine old rooms (including some suites and junior suites) in the main house, and more contemporary rooms in a modern extension; an atrium joining the two sections makes a pleasant conservatory seating area (complete with grape vine), opening onto the lakeside grounds.

This Killarney hotels got many attractive features, not least its generous period sitting rooms and open fires, and a characterful cellar bar (unfortunately spoilt somewhat by modernisation - bright downlighting, poor acoustics) with a real old-fashioned wine cellar.

The classically elegant Herbert Room Restaurant is situated on the lake side of the house, offering a perfect setting for fine dining.


Banqueting (80). Free Broadband wi/fi. Children welcome (under 3s free in parents' room, cot available without charge, baby sitting arranged.) No pets. Garden, walking, fishing, tennis. Golf nearby.
