Welcome To Cahernane

Cahernane House Hotel Killarney

The best secrets are in the most hidden places

Dear friends,

We hope this message finds you and your family safe and well. We appreciate that so much has changed this year and we are continuing to following all the necessary guidelines.

It’s with heavy hearts that we must again close our doors due to Level 5 government restrictions being imposed across the country.

We will close from the 21st of October 2020 and we will reopen on the 4th December 2020 or such time as Level 5 restrictions are lifted or eased.

The safety of our team and our guests remains our priority. 

We look forward to seeing you soon and thank you all for your understanding.

General Manager

Beautifully situated on a private estate on the edge of Killarney National Park, our boutique four-star hotel is located just twenty 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 Killarney 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.
