About the property

Spacious detached 9-11 bedroom luxury house

The distinction between ‘house’ and ‘home’ is an Irish one and there’s no place quite like it in an Irish person’s heart. Welcoming our guests and making them feel ‘at home’ is the most important part of what we strive to do here at Killarney Manor House (formally Valentine House) since we decided to offer our ‘home’ for guest house rentals or vacation rentals. Owned and managed by the Casey family Killarney Manor house is conveniently located only 5 -10 min walk from Killarney town centre and boasts 9 en-suite bedrooms (two further available) which can accommodate upto 22 people comfortably. Full accommodation includes large lounge and sitting room both with beautiful marble surround open fires , spacious fully equipped modern kitchen, dining room with log burning stove for your comfort, games room with full size pool table, laundry room, 9 en-suite bedrooms with top of the range king size beds (two additional bedrooms available on request) as well as an outdoor seating area with BBQ perfect for alfresco dining.

In addition to being only a short stroll to Killarney's world famous National Park, home of the majestic McGillycuddy Reeks, the highest mountain range in Ireland and the breathtaking Lakes of Killarney, Killarney Manor House is close to all amenities. Within minutes stroll of the property you will find a choice of grocery stores, churches, cathedral, post office, train station, bus station, spas etc., all you could wish for and in the evenings there is a wealth of traditional Irish Pubs where you can enjoy Irish music and dance at its finest as well as a host of highly recommended restaurants to choose from.

As well as this our guests will find themselves in the midst of a golfer’s paradise. The Kerry Region is famous for its golf courses and has long since attracted Golfers from around the world and Killarney is the ideal base. Killarney Golf & Fishing Club (Host to the Irish Open in 2010 & 2011), Kenmare, Ballybunion (World class links course), Tralee and Waterville are just some of the courses that can be found in the county of Kerry and indeed the famous Old Head of Kinsale course is also only a short drive away .

Killarney Manor House provides guests with a perfect base from which to take day trips including the Ring of Kerry, the Gap of Dunloe, Torc Waterfall and the Ring of Beara and much more. Local activities include fishing, hill walking, cycling, horse riding to mention a few. We would be delighted to offer our guests any advice or recommendations on our local attractions or organise any trips or activities upon request.

Killarney Manor House is the perfect setting for large family gatherings and indeed a base for a group of friends golfing or exploring in the Kerry region. We hope you will remember your stay with a smile.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family recently completed a family vacation for 15 people (7 adults, 8 children) to Killarney where we stayed in the Killarney Manor House, formerly named the “Valentine House.” The house was the perfect house for our large family. It is massive, consisting of 11 bedrooms, 9 en-suite bathrooms, and an extremely large formal dining room. There is even a courtyard in the back of the house where the younger children ran around and played. Everyone had space to play in. When we first entered the house there was a jug of milk in the refrigerator and breakfast cereal, bread, and rolls for breakfast the next morning. That was a nice touch. Catriona Casey was wonderful. She greeted us and gave us excellent choices for dining and entertainment. Further, she was indeed a pleasure to work with when we booked the house. Our vacation was truly memorable and we will have fond memories of this amazing house.

Stunning property

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 10 golfers and although we arrived later than intended Catriona was on hand to greet us and show us round the house. It was far bigger than we expected and easily one of the best we have stayed in, all the bedrooms were very comfortable, spacious and the majority with en suite facilities. More than enough room for us all to relax when not out and about. Quietly situated but a short walk into Killarney to enjoy all the bars and restaurants. A great base for any one exploring the south west with or without golf clubs.

The perfect stay at Killarney Manor House!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Killarney Manor House — we couldn't have found someplace more perfect for our large group of 20. Catriona was fantastic and went above and beyond to make sure that our stay was both enjoyable and memorable. Chef Rob also cooked an incredible dinner for our large group (no easy feat) — our friends are still raving about how good the meal was. The one downside was that the wifi only seemed to work downstairs, but that's literally the only constructive feedback I can give — our trip was a dream. Couldn't recommend this place more!

Wonderful home, great for groups!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 12 had a fantastic stay. We received timely replies from Catriona and everything was ready to go upon our arrival. The house is HUGE and the layout is wonderful for groups as everyone has their own bathroom. We made breakfasts and dinners in each night and there was space for all of us in the dining room to eat together. The house is located a 15 minute walk from the center of Killarney which was perfect for our group to explore and meet tour activities. We also took a 45 minute walk to the National Park where we visited Ross Castle which is beautiful. Thank you for such a wonderful week!

Fabulous property for groups and families

  • 5 of 5

This was the 70th birthday celebration with 4 of our children, their spouses and 2 babies. Everyone loved the location and the home. We arrived to fresh bread and jam and coffee and tea that everyone gobbled up! The spaciousness allowed everyone to have their own space including parents who usually have to bunk with their children given our large group. The wood stove in room pictured kept the house cozy. The house was simply immaculate and very soundproof so crying babies did not disturb. I slept right next door to my 8 month old grand daughter so can attest to that. The amenities, furniture, linens, kitchen stock with 2 refrigerators and washer dryer were all exceptional. We were able to walk to the park or town easily as well as the train to Dublin. We spent most of off time in the evening assembling a puzzle of a photo of my husbands last stay in Ireland 20 years ago in the kitchen. Lots of games for all ages and toys for children in the house as well as a pool table in the second sitting room. We had a splendid dinner in the 16 seat dining room on his actual birthday with Chef Robert that was exceptional and as New York foodies we say that from vast experience with the best. The dingle seafood stew was the best we have had anywhere and the duck was terrific and perfectly prepared. We would have used him all week but preferred to make our own breakfast and picnic lunches and eat out for dinner. I am sure Chef Roberts breakfasts would have been exceptional but we were up and out early each day. Chef Robert is a very nice man and makes every attempt to make food and experience exceptional. l Lots of parking and very private setting despite so close to other houses and town. The view of the Magillacuddy Reek mountains at sunrise from 4 front bedrooms on both floors was awesome. Highly recommend this house.

House manager Catriona was very responsive leading up to our stay and throughout. Always cheerful and informative. We love Ireland and highly recommend

This house was ideal for our group of 13. There were ample gathering spaces and we loved that all the bedrooms were ensuite. The washer and dryer functioned more like American machines (clothes actually dried!). Best of all, the house is a short walk to the center of Killarney. We can't wait to go back!
