We are delighted to announce the newest addition to the Cahernane Estate, The Coach House. The Coach House is part of a huge refurbishment project which has been taking place since the hotel closed in December and we’re excited to unveil the finished project in May of this year. The works have cost a total of 7.8 million euro and we know you will be just as impressed as we are when they are fully complete.
Originally The Coach House would have been a building adjacent to the main house, used for housing horse-drawn carriages, coaches, and other vehicles – depending which the family owned. We have made good use of this space and created a specially designed sanctuary for our guests, with 8 luxurious new bedrooms designed and created with you in mind. Although the design and décor of the house is vintage and traditional, you can expect all of the usual modern features as standard.
All rooms in The Coach House feature:
The house has had to be completely reconfigured under the guidance of architectural firm Moloney O’Beirne and is now unrecognisable from what it once was. We commissioned a very talented interior designer, Julie Goggin, whom we have worked with on many other projects within the group, to help us realise the full beauty of The Coach House. Each of the 8 new bedrooms has unique feature wallpaper and is fitted and furnished with luxurious fabrics and original Irish antique furniture. The bathrooms will have a mixture of iconic freestanding, claw foot baths and others, walk-in rain showers and handmade tiles. The décor is very different to that of the Manor house. It draws on the beauty of native Kerry Flora and Fauna and uses deep earthy tones to accentuate their beauty.
As well as the ongoing works on The Coach House, we have given both the Library room and Drawing room a renovation to refresh the look and feel of the main hotel. We are looking forward to sharing more pictures of these renovations with you as the work is completed. The Coach House will be open to guests from May 2019 onwards and if you would like to make a booking you can contact our reservations team.
