Had a fantastic meal here on a weekend away. The restaurant itself is in a lovely set of rooms in the main house and is very comfortable . On the night we dined it was very busy and service was fantastic.We had delicious starters of Goats Cheese and scallops , both very high quality and presented perfectly. The scallops were... More

Normally I prefer not to eat in hotel dining rooms as it is nice to go out locally and it is often better as well. However, our dinner was part of our weekend package. Cahernane has a very attractive, warm and welcoming dining room but this would be of small matter if the food was not as good as it... More

We had the worse experience we've had in ages. Having said that many others have told us how well they ate there so we believe we were just very unlucky. It happens. Service was definitely sup-par for a place trying to do something special. Having said that this is all new and if well managed I have no doubt it... More

My friends and I had dinner at Herbert Restaurant while we were staying at the Cahernane House Hotel, where Herbert Restaurant is located. We where a little skeptics when we saw that there were very little reviews on Tripadvisor, but the breakfast we'd had in the morning was exquisitely cooked and the dinner menu was intriguing, so we decided to...

It can be rare to find a good hotel restaurant and there are certainly plenty to choose from in Killarney. We discovered the Herbert Room when we stayed at Cahernane House hotel this weekend. From breakfast to dinner locally sourced ingredients are used and the head chef here clearly believes in going the extra mile - all breads, chutneys, ice... More

I stayed here with my wife recently and we ate in the Herbert restaurant on Weds night. It was closed on Tues and a wedding was booked for Thurs so this was only night available. There wasn't many people in the restaurant, mainly because it's off-season. However, the quite atmosphere was nice. I had fish cakes for starters. Presented on... More
