Touchstoneof Peace, Serenity and a simpler life

  • 5 of 5

I have had the honor of staying at Coolclogher House some ten years plus, usually when they are bringing in the hay, and can say that it warms my heart and soul every time I drive 'up the drive' and settle in for a cup of tea with Mary and Maurice. I feel so welcomed by their hospitality, so soothed by the beautiful landscape and immediately immersed in my “secret Ireland” where 'having a craic' is highly valued. I could not adore a place more! I am very blessed to have found the house and my friends,the Harnett’s.

For a cup of tea with Maury and Maurice.

Elegant, Comfortable and a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a wonderful stay for the week. The proximity to take day trips to the best sigh seeing spots is really nice. The interior is elegant and comfortable, which is a great and uncommon combination for houses of such history and character. I would certainly recommend this accommodation to anyone visiting Killarney.

The golfers

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Mary and Maurice's with a group of friends and we used Coolclogher as a base. It turned out to be a lot more than that. Each of us was delighted with the house from the moment we entered the gates until we drove away a week later. What we felt on arrival got better every day. The style of the house was impeccable, every room was magnificent. We had everything we needed, every facility was there and everything was in perfect order. The attention to detail was way more than we could have hoped for and the personal touches from Mary and Maurice made the whole experience perfect.

As for the nearby facilities: The centre of Killarney was a few minutes away by car. Restaurants and pubs offer a good variety of very decent food. All easy to find and all worth a visit.

Brilliant, Beautiful and Bloody Good

  • 5 of 5

There were 8 of us, all golfers, having a week playing courses around the Ring of Kerry. The house was perfect, great charm, brilliant kitchen for socialising, and Mary and Maurice were the best hosts. If we go back anywhere near Killarney there is only one place to stay.

Thanksgiving in Killarney

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 13 that spent Thanksgiving at Coolclogher house. The house is magnificent- a quintessential Irish setting including sheep and rolling hills. Each room is beautifully decorated- clearly the restoration was done with great care. Mary is always around- helpful, kind, and joyous. She loves sharing her home. Killarney is a short ride away and a fabulous spot to explore. We all loved our holiday at Coolclogher house.
