Beautifully situated on a private estate on the edge of Killarney National Park, this boutique four-star hotel is located just ten minutes' walk from Killarney town centre. The entrance to the hotel is framed by a tunnel of greenery which unfurls to reveal the beauty of this imposing manor house, constructed in 1877 and formerly home to the Herbert Family. Cahernane House Hotel exudes a sense of relaxation and peacefulness where guests can retreat from the hectic pace of life into a cocoon of calmness and serenity. The only sounds you may hear are the cows bellowing, the lambs bleating or the birds singing.
We are delighted to be part of the Conde Nast Johansens collection of luxury travel destinations, a worldwide reference guide for exceptional places to stay. Partnering with some of the world’s finest hotels, Cahernane is amongst some fine company in this prestigious listing.
The hotel offers 40 spacious guest rooms; 12 of which are located in the original house. These rooms boast many of the original features including wooden ceiling beams, cornicing and fireplaces. Each room is decorated in a unique style, relevant to the original period.
There are 28 spacious deluxe rooms available in the garden wing of the hotel many of which feature French doors onto either a ground floor patio or a first-floor balcony, commanding stunning views over the local landscape.
The dining experience at The Herbert Restaurant is one to savour. Recently awarded 2AA Rosettes, the dining room epitomises the style and grandeur of the original house with beautiful views over the gardens and mountains beyond. Our Head Chef Eric Kavanagh has created an extensive menu of delicious, locally sourced seasonal produce. Bookings can be made online and it is advisable to reserve a table in advance.
Located in the basement of the hotel, The Cellar Bar occupies the original wine cellar of the house. Cosy and inviting, and difficult to leave; we have an extensive selection of beers, spirits and wines for you to enjoy. Curl up by the fire with a good book or recount the tales of your day's exploring while enjoying your favourite tipple.
From April 1st, we will have a selection of light bites, main courses and pastries served daily. You can also view our Bar Menu.
