Cahernane House Hotel Review

Get a glimpse of the Killarney that attracted discerning 19th-century visitors at this imposing gray-stone house—if you need a refuge from the touristy buzz of Killarney town, this is the place. At the end of a long private avenue through a tunnel of trees, the estate, dating from 1877, was the residence of the earls of Pembroke and retains a stately interior. A crackling log fire awaits in the stunning drawing room, which, like all the reception rooms, has highly polished mahogany furniture, wall paneling, grand velvets, and time-burnished paintings. It's worth paying extra for a room in the original house—they have a genuine sense of history, with fine Victorian furniture. Newer rooms have private garden access and peaceful parkland views. Classic French cuisine is served in the Herbert Room, with a bistro menu in the Cellar Bar or conservatory.
