Did you know that Cahernane House Hotel has a gourmet, award-winning restaurant? Herbert Restaurants is one of the finest in Killarney, thanks in part to our fantastic Head Chef, Eric Kavanagh. Here is some more information about the restaurant, our wonderful chef and our Gourmet Getaway Packages which are now available.
Located inside the main building, Herbert Restaurant will be one of the highlights of your stay in Cahernane. The restaurant is decorated opulently in the style and design of the original house, complete with luxury furnishings, flooring and fittings. Just because the style of the restaurant is grand, it doesn’t mean the dress code or atmosphere overly stuffy. We encourage customers to dress well but comfortably and enjoy a casual ambience throughout your meal. Our staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and are always happy to help with any questions or recommendations.
Herbert Restaurant has won many awards for a combination of its ambience, décor, staff and of course, our fantastic food. We’re proud to be double AA Rosette award winners and recently we were shortlisted in the Condé Nast top 3 hotels for ‘Best Dining Experience, UK & Ireland’. This is particularly impressive as Condé Nast is widely regarded as the ultimate travel bible for luxury hotels, restaurants and destinations from around the world.
We are beyond lucky to have the talent and skill of our Head Chef who is the driving force behind our kitchen team. Eric has pushed the usual boundaries and compiled an impressive menu, which is inspired by Killarney’s seasonal flora and fauna. Originally from Cork, Eric followed in his fathers’ footsteps and has nurtured his passion for cooking since early childhood. With stints in Canada & New Zealand and taking influence from French cuisine, Eric combines his knowledge and love of food to impress each patron who is lucky enough to dine in The Herbert Restaurant.
