Reviews Of Coolclogher House Ireland


This was the 2nd time renting Coolclogher House for a gathering of family and friends to enjoy the wonderful home and hospitality extended by the owners, Mary and Maurice Harnett. Coolclogher House is a special place in a special part of the world, conveniently located for sight seeing, hiking in the National park, and day tours in beautiful County Kerry. While feeling miles away as you look to the pastures and mountains from the spacious living areas (peat fire included), this well equipped home is convenient to Killarney (5 minute ride) and its many restaurants/pubs and attractions. Great location for golf with easy access to several top rated links courses along with some nice local courses. I would highly recommend this home for family reunions, golfing groups, or couples vacations as every bedroom is well appointed and spacious. You will not be disappointed!


Coolclogher House in The Times

Coolclogher House Killarney, Co Kerry. Call off the search if you’re looking for a classy, intimate venue for a wedding or party on the Emerald Isle. Coolclogher House is an historic manor house built in 1746 and surrounded by an 68-acre walled estate on the Ring of Kerry. Inside, there is antique furniture, luxurious rugs and seven bedrooms with high ceilings. And with seven bathrooms, no one need fight for space to get ready on the big day.

I have been to Coolclogher House 3 times in the last 4 years and amazingly it just continues to get better. The most beautiful luxury manor house on 60+ acres of fantastic countryside, it is the absolutely perfect way to experience Ireland. A very short drive (or invigorating walk) to reach charming downtown Killarney, or experience the Gap of Dunloe or Ring of Kerry. What is your Irish pleasure, sight seeing, golf, hiking, fine dining, etc.? Whatever your desire, Killarney has the best to offer. And no better base of operation than Coolclogher House, the ideal combination of elegance and comfort. Put this must see property on your “bucket list” it is indeed a once in a lifetime experience (but you will come back more than once)!

Had a wonderful stay at this very beautiful manor. The entire time our group felt like royalty ! The rooms and furnishings were top notch and the owners of the property, Mary, Maurice and daughter Katie were delightful and so helpful planning our day trips.The views from the en suite rooms were like postcard pictures of the Irish countryside.So peaceful and quiet we slept so soundly.We were just a short trip to Killarney to visit the churches,pubs and shops (could easily be walked in daylight hours) The manor in short is just magnificent and we plan to bring our entire family back this spring. Coolclogher would be a wonderful venue for a family reunion or wedding ! 5 stars all the way !!

I searched for the “perfect place” to spend two weeks with my family in Ireland and I found it! Coolclogher House is special in so many ways. The house itself is a true Manor House, elegantly appointed yet very comfortable. We felt like Royalty! Each guest staying at Coolclogher House gets a great room with private bath. It is meticulously maintained and cared for by Mary and Maurice Hartnett who live on the property and act as “concierge.” Mary helped us with everything from dinner reservations to fishing expeditions; she knows everyone in town and is just a wealth of information. The property offers stunning views and plenty room for our children to run and play. The house is located just a few miles from town – a nice walk or bike ride. Killarney is a busy town with great pubs, restaurants and shopping. Our teenagers loved the “night life”. But the most appealing aspect of Killarney for us was Killarney National Park – 27,000 acres of breathtaking scenery, paths and trails which we hiked, biked and rode on horses. From Coolclogher House, the entrance to the park is just a short walk. For longer day trips, Killarney is the perfect spot to explore the southwest of Ireland – we visited Kinsale, Waterville, Dingle, Kenmare, and the Ring of Kerry. For golfers, there are many courses just a short drive and some of the more famous courses are an easy day-trip. Our trip to Ireland and in particular to Coolclogerher House provided us with memories to last a lifetime.

The most beautiful “home” I have ever had the pleasure to experience. I put home in quotes because this is very much a luxury Manor House, but the lovely family that owns/runs the facility truly make you feel at home. While their web site is very informative, the actual experience far exceeded my expectations. This georgous estate, surrounded by acres of lush countryside, is the most welcoming and comfortable setting you can imagine. Each suite is more beautiful than the next, featuring individual bathrooms, blackout shutters, and beds that will afford the absolutely best night’s sleep you have ever had. The house is elegantly appointed and, yet, very comfortable. My favorite is the very large and accommodating country kitchen, where we took most of our meals and enjoyed many a wonderful and lively conversation. Located minutes from downtown Killarney, Coolclogher was the perfect home base for a travels in Southern Ireland. Relatively short drives to many charming cities (Adare, Dingle, Kenmare, etc) added to the overall ambiance. Downtown Killarney was full of really terrific pubs and shops. All in all, this may have been my most memorable and relaxing vacation. My heartfelt thanks to the family (Mary, Maurice, and Katie) that catered to all our needs and more. Truly a 5 star experience!!

We left Indiana Christmas morning with all 13 members of our family. (Our children, their spouses & grandchildren) When we arrived at the Coolcloger House we were amazed that it was more beautiful than it’s pictures. Daytimes was spent sightseeing & evenings comfortably sitting around one of the beautiful fireplaces, playing games in the cozy kitchen or visiting a local pub!! We hired a recommended Chef for New Year’s Evening for a delicious meal & was entertained by the beautiful voice & music of Mary’s daughter & her friend. Memories were made that will last a lifetime……..

We stayed at the Coolclogher House for a week in August 2009. It was everything and more than we expected. There were 12 of us on property, 2 families with children 17-24. We took day trips to see the sights around Killarney but always returned to our house! Our hosts could not have been more helpful, answering questions and helping to arrange transportation when needed. It was a fantastic place to stay and if we returned to the area would definitely go back. A great value for the money! Don’t miss out on this treasure!!!

We loved everything about this Mansion, in Killarney where we stayed March this year for three weeks with my immediate family. The bedrooms and bathrooms are large, light, and meticulously kept and feature amazing views of the surrounding Kerry Mountains and the world famous “Lakes of Killarney”. The grounds are stunning, an expanse of open space and trees that somehow offer solitude and tranquillity. The town of Killarney is a short stroll from the house, which was fabulous for the teenagers and the more energetic of our group. We had some great chats with Mary and Maurice who really made us feel so welcome!!! They gave us lots of advice and history the Killarney area. They have some beautiful racehorses which Maurice breeds as a hobby. While we were there they had a gorgeous little foal who was an amusement all by himself. Coolclogher House has become one of those invaluable places to stay in the world to which I always know that I will return, and I can’t recommend it highly enough.

We rented Coolclogher House for a week in august 2013 to celebrate my husband’s 80th birthday and invited our 3 children, their spouses, and their children (3 teenage grandchildren.) The house was perfect –gracious, spacious, views of the mountains and the spectacular grounds from most rooms. Our hostess, Mary, was extremely helpful in recommending a driver-guide and a caterer, and in pointing us towards local attractions. The cost of the rental was reasonable, considering how large and comfortable it is. Even the weather cooperated and we will always look back on our week with enormous pleasure. There is tons to do nearby — horseback riding, jaunting carts, walking, biking, sightseeing, boat through lakes. We could have stayed a month!
