Killarney Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Luxury Spacious Historic Rental Manor 7 bedrooms 7 bathrooms Killarney Ireland

Coolclogher House is a historic luxury manor home set on a private 68 acre walled estate five minutes drive from Killarney town and walking distance to the National Park/Gardens a very unique and beautiful location on the Ring of Kerry route.We are five minutes from Killarney National Park and gardens.There are lakes, mountains, beaches and castles within walking distance, and it is a short walk to the historic and beautiful town of Killarney.Dingle and Kenmare are a short drive away. All the bedrooms are en suite with wonderful views, and the super king-sized beds with Egyptian cotton bed linen ensure guests have a good night’s sleep. The beautiful kitchen is fully equipped, there is a separate dining room that can seat up to 20 and two large, welcoming living rooms with open fires in which to relax and unwind. The house is superbly decorated with antiques, art, polished timber flooring, books, flowers and luxurious rugs throughout. This is a very special place to stay, especially in spring/summer; it is particularly suited to long stays and for celebrating a special occasion. It is licensed for small wedding ceremonies. It is recommended by all the top travel guides and Irish Tourist Board.


This is a wonderful location for Walkers/Hirkers and Cyclists with amazing scenery to be discovered nearby Killarney National Park is the ideal wilderness for the committed walker, or those who want short, stimulating and exceedingly beautiful walks. There are also many cycling routes in the local. One of the best longer walks circles around Muckross Lake and is 13km of scenic splendour all the way. Another passes through Tomies Wood, a fine oak wood nestled between Tomies Mountain and Lough Leane and passing the picturesque O'Sullivan's Cascade. The walk from Knockreer House to Ross Castle offers some great views, while the slightly longer trek along the shoulder of Mangerton Mountain. Torc Mountain which includes parts of the Old Kenmare Road is ideal for the average walker with stunning views of Muckross Lake if you’re lucky you might see a deer or rabbit on you travels. The park is full of wildlife and bubbling streams which add a natural soundtrack to your walk or hike.


Coolclogher House provides the perfect holiday accommodation for day trips to Dingle, the Ring Of Kerry, Blarney Castle, Gap Of Dunloe and lots more. Killarney National Park & Gardens, Ross Castle, Torc Waterfall, Muckross Abbey are within easy reach, some guests go for a run in the park before breakfast. One of the most popular day is the Killarney valley tour. This is 7/12 miles through a glacier valley which guests can either walk or take the traditional jauting cart. This is followed by lunch at a radiating Irish cafe and finished by a private boat trip on the Lakes of Killarney for 2/12 hours finishing at Ross Castle. On route from the café to Ross castle it is possible to take a stop at Innish Sallen Island where monks wrote early Irish history.

A day trip to the Wild Atlantic way is a chance to see the rugged and wild side or Ireland that our Irish ancestors would have experienced. There you will see beehive huts that were places of shelter made completely of stones found in the surrounding area. You can see waves hit the cliffs as you drive on the cliff side roads and see in the distance the Skellig islands and much closer the Blasket Islands. Visit Dunn Quinn pier where you can take a boat to the Blasket Islands or continue onto a secret cove where Ryan’s daughter was filmed. To lean more about Sleahead the islands and the filming Ryan’s Daughter a visit to the Blasket Islands centre is great stop for lunch and to learn about this fascinating area. Gallarus Oratory can been seen and is one of the best example of an early Christian church. On your way home a stop into the harbour town of Dingle is a must for a well-deserved pint of the black stuff and nice creamy Guinness in one of the many friendly and colourful pubs.

Other day trips guests enjoy are Blarney castle/ Blarney stone/ Kinsale, also the Ring of Kerry. The cliffs of Moher are also a popular destination. There are also numerous sites to see in a daytrip around Killarney.

There are many Blue Flag beaches a short distance away. There is horse riding through parts of the national park. Guests enjoy fishing and golf or relax at the house sitting under a tree with a cold drink and a book, or visit a local spa or café. For children there is a local pet farm and wildlife park, Crag Cave is also a short drive away. Evenings can be spent having dinner at the house, many guests have a caterer in to cook for them, or for relaxed family meals the kitchen has an aga cooker and there is an outdoor barbeque. In the summer many guests sit out in the garden until well after 10pm.There are also many great restaurants/cafés/ pubs/shops locally. Concert hall and cinema. The house is ideal for long stays as there is so much to see and do in the local area.


Killarney Golf and fishing club, Waterville Golf Club, Valley Bunion, Tralee Golf Club, Dooks Golf club and Old head are some of the may golf clubs guest like to play at.

The Ring of Kerry region abounds with numerous rivers and lakes, which provide some amazing trout and salmon fishing. The River Flesk is within walking distance of Coolclogher House, it has great fishing for salmon and brown trout. A stretch of the river runs through the Coolclogher lands by an Old Mill, this provides a truly unique fishing location.

The River Caragh is 20 minutes drive away and offers a rural location with salmon and trout fishing. Sea fishing can also be arranged during your stay.

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at The Coolclogher Estate was absolutely amazing! We could not have been happier! The house itself is a masterpiece, and the grounds were incredible. The owner was a very gracious host. She made sure we had everything we needed and was a wonderful tour guide planner. It was our first trip to Ireland, but not our last. We look forward to our next trip and will most certainly stay at The Coolclogher Estate.

Could not have been more beautiful or restful

  • 5 of 5

The manor is spacious and relaxing, the grounds are stunningly beautiful, and the owner could not have been more friendly or accommodating. I have traveled extensively, and this is, no question, one of the best places I have ever stayed.

Idyllic is the word that comes to mind.

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 11 other golfers stayed at Coolclogher House for a week. It was our home base to play at 7 fantastic golf courses in the most spectacular scenery in all of Ireland. The manor House is replete with fine furnishings and high end appliances and creature comforts. After golf we would socialize outside in the spectacular garden with magnificent views and have a nice meal or barbeque. The Harnetts are top notch hosts and we became fast friends during the week. Needless to say we will be coming back in the future as we had the vacation of a life time. Damian Dupuy

Coolclogher House, Killarney, Ireland

  • 5 of 5

Coolclogher House met all of our expectations and more! We rented the entire house, and it felt like home! From the moment we arrived, to the day we left, Mary and Maurice Harnett accommodated our every need and want, as well as gifting us a bus trip for the entire group of 23 around the Ring of Kerry! We were in Ireland celebrating the marriage of my niece, and had the time of our lives! The beautiful home, grounds and gardens provided an atmosphere unlike any we could have imagined, and the celebration dinner had all the Irish touches we were hoping for! Each bedroom was better than the next, and no one felt they had been slighted. The fabulous kitchen was a chef's dream, and as I love to cook, I thoroughly enjoyed spending time in it! The town of Killarney was so charming, and we were able to spend plenty of time enjoying quite a few pubs! In addition, the golfers in our group were thrilled to have Tralee and Dooks so close! I have encouraged my friends, that if they are ever to have a family/friend gathering, Coolclogher House must be their destination!

All the best to Mary and Maurice!

Where do you live?

The perfect experience!

  • 5 of 5

Someone recently asked me my opinion about Coolclogher House and I realized I'd not yet written a review, which is a shame.

My husband and I were married at Coolclogher in April, 2013 and it couldn't have been more perfect.

Our perfect experience began with owner Mary, who called me almost immediately after I'd submitted a request on VRBO. She worked with me to find a date that was available at the house and would work with our schedule. From there, Mary became my wedding planner and made our experience as smooth, easy, and fun as possible. Without Mary's help, we would not have been able to be married in ireland. Mary also helped coordinate tours, transportation, private chef-catered dinner, photography, you name it!

The house and surrounding estate are simply stunning! Each ensuite bedroom is comfortable, well appointed, and very pretty with beds being combined or separated according to your needs.

The kitchen is a cook's dream and was the hub of our stay, with our 14 guests beginning their days there with home-cooked (and money-saving) breakfasts. Our days ended with Irish whiskey and card games in either of their two cozy, yet spacious, parlors.

Coolclogher's grounds are equally amazing as the house. I include the atrium off the dining room with the 200 year old Camellia tree in the grounds which bloomed during our stay.

Coolclogher is a perfect place for your family and friends and will live in our memories as one of the best weeks of our lives. That is, until we return for new memories!

Perfect Week

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 10 Canadians who spent a perfect week at Coolclogher house.The house is large and very comfortable with great bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms. Every couple thought that they had the 'best' room in the house! Mary greeted us with a warm Irish welcome, and facilitated our day trips for golf and sightseeing. She also organized a chef for a couple of delicious dinners. The house is set in beautiful countryside and is within walking distance of the town of Killarney. We loved being there and were sorry to leave. Hope to return some day!
