Amazing, Fantastic and Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week at Mary and Morris's wonderful home. There were eleven of us and we all had a huge amount of space. The bedrooms are big, bright and airy. Mary and Morris have done such a wonderful job in restoring this property, it is the best done historic home I have ever seen. With 68 acres to roam around, you can contemplate the beauty of Ireland, watch amazing sunsets or just sit and be peaceful. It is such a restorative place. The kitchen is the oldest part of the house and definitely the heart of the home. We were able to cook several meals, which helped on food costs for eleven people. Mary and Morris were wonderful hosts and always making sure we were comfortable. She had tea and cakes waiting for us when we first arrived! I cannot recommend this house enough. If you are going to Ireland, stay with Mary and Morris! We cannot wait to come back!

Our group of 14 friends and family members enjoyed a glorious week in Coolclogher Manor during the first week of June. We were hoping for a spacious, elegant and inviting home in which to spend a week in County Kerry. Our hopes and expectations were exceeded in every way. Mary is the consummate host. Her daily visits to check in on us were always a highlight of the day. Mary loves Coolclogher Manor (and for good reason as it is obviously a labor of love for Mary and Morris), but her ultimate passion seems to lie in doing her very best to make sure her guests have a great holiday experience in Killarney. The amenities and features of Coolclogher are too numerous to list in detail. But what made our stay so truly memorable were the "little" things. We will always remember the cozy fires that were prepared and ready for us when we came in from a cool, rainy Irish day. Our kids enjoyed playing the piano and exploring the stunning 68 acres of gorgeous Irish countryside that surround Coolclogher. We took advantage of the opportunity to have Claude and his staff prepare some meals for us. Not only was the food amazing, but sharing a fabulous meal together in the setting of such a beautiful and elegant dining room created just the right atmosphere. Every bedroom was luxurious and uniquely furnished with beautiful antiques. The "common" areas of the house are all sumptuously decorated, yet warm and inviting. However, everyone's favorite gathering place was the large, country style kitchen. We enjoyed breakfast together around the kitchen table, often with a warm fire going in the fire place. The surrounding area of County Kerry provides a wealth of activities and day trips to keep travelers of various types entertained for weeks on end. The only negative thing about Coolclogher was having to leave at the end of the week!

Wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 10 Canadians who spent an marvelous week at Coolclogher House. We were greeted with a warm Irish welcome from the owner, Mary, who had great suggestions for what to see and do. The rooms are large and extremely comfortable with the result that we all thought are own room was the 'best.' The views from the house are spectacular. We travelled out each day to sightsee and golf, and it was always a delight to return home to Coolclogher, to sit outside and gaze at the view, or to sit inside in one of the comfortable sitting rooms. The house and its amenities definitely exceeded our expectations and we hope to return some day. All of us would highly recommend it.

This residence exceeded our expectations. We came as a family of 13 to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Mary was a delight always willing to give suggestions as to travel, sightsee, etc. we had a wonderful dinner catered by Claude and it will be an occasion to remember always by all. The house is a great starting point to see the best of the killarney and cork areas. W e wholeheartedly recommend this house and deeply thank Mary and Morris for their hospitality an kindness.

Most amazing holiday in a perfect luxurious setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Coolclogher House for 3 nights and wished that we could have stayed longer. The visit was perfect in every way and the occasional rain didn't dampen our spirits or the enthusiasm of our three year old at all! She loved running around the large estate and visiting with the guinea fowls and resident tabby cat. The house is beautiful, elegant and luxuriously furnished. The beds were incredibly comfortable and we enjoyed sitting in front of the fireplace every afternoon/evening looking out on the immaculate grounds and distant mountains surrounding Killarney. The owners Mary and Morris are onsite and are unfailingly helpful and friendly. We had a lovely time getting to know them and appreciated all their spot-on recommendations. We only had a couple of days to explore the area, so spent a full day driving around the spectacular Dingle peninsula (loved the Dingle aquarium which may be the best little aquarium we've ever been to ever, Slea Head Drive, and having lunch at the Boatyard Restaurant with nice views of the harbor) and another day exploring Killarney. We enjoyed our jaunty ride through the Muckross Estate and Killarney National Park, walking up to the lovely Torc waterfall, and visiting Ross Castle at sunset to feed the local ducks and swans. We didn't sample the culinary delights of Killarney town as we enjoyed cooking in the cozy and wonderfully equipped kitchen at the House, and having meals in the gorgeous dining/living area. The house would be perfect for larger groups and families looking for a relaxed and quiet vacation while being close to all the city amenities of Killarney and beautiful scenic areas of southwestern Ireland such as the Ring of Kerry, Killarney National Park and Dingle Peninsula.

Owner's Response: Thank you Alice for your lovely review.For guests who suffer many allergies I must point out we do NOT have a resident tabby Cat.There is a cat that wonders around the farm but she is definitely not allowed in the manor. Guests tell us that they have never seen a place so clean.

Warm and wonderful, a very memorable stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Coolclogher House at the end of November, one to celebrate his birthday and to also generally get away for a bit; rest and relax. We had such a lovely lovely time! Not only are Mary and her family kind, warm and generous, but their welcoming way truly made us feel like we were staying in our own home. The house is large, and well appointed as you can see from the site photo's. Every morning was a roaring fire in the breakfast / sitting room for us to come and sit next to, wonderful! Lucky for us, weather was beautiful, so we spent quite a lot of time outside, walking around their property for short walks and also in the Killarney area. All very beautiful and magnificent! Evening bath time and then more time in front of the fireplace. The whole Coolclogher House experience is one you really MUST have! You will be so happy that you did! We'll never forget ours and we plan to come back again and again! :-)
