Cahernane House Hotel

A hidden country house gem amidst the charms of County Kerry

Cahernane House Hotel certainly likes to make an entrance. Once a Victorian manor house, this grand family home has been transformed into a stylish country house retreat, complete with a long, tree-lined driveway, sweeping grounds and ivy-festooned façade. But its position on the edge of the wild Killarney National Park is what really steals the show, putting you within easy distance of Country Kerry’s natural beauty.

Much of the original house remains, from the old cellar, now a plush bar, to the plant-filled Atrium. Gilt-framed portraits and chandeliers lend a little historic sparkle, while bright pops of colour add a contemporary touch. Curl up on a comfy sofa by a crackling fire, or tuck into a hearty Irish breakfast in the elegant dining room. Upstairs, the snug bedrooms are the perfect haven, with huge beds, decadent wallpaper, and wide sash windows that look out onto the distant Purple Mountains.

By day, Killarney National Park begs to be explored, with a myriad of walking, hiking and biking trails. Or hop in the car and take in the spectacular coastal scenery on the Wild Atlantic Way. When evening falls, stroll to nearby Killarney town centre and soak up the lively atmosphere – most of its local pubs come to life every evening to the sound of traditional Irish folk music.

Enjoy your stay!

Cahernane House Hotel

A land waiting to be explored

Ancient woodland, green valleys, and Ireland’s highest mountain range, the MacGillicuddy Reeks, all vie for your attention at Cahernane House Hotel. Many of the staff know the landscape inside out, so ask for their in-the-know walking and hiking recommendations. Or set off on a scenic bike ride with a picnic hamper for a lakeside lunch. Country Kerry also has championship golf courses, riding stables for all-day pony treks, and rivers and lakes for world-class salmon and brown trout fishing.
