For the past 18 months, refurbishments works on an 1800s manor house in Killarney have been underway in a bid to return the luxury mansion house to its former glory.
Cahernane House Hotel will throw open its doors to the public in early March and from the sneak peeks we've seen, it looks absolutely beautiful.
The Manor House – the most luxurious part of Cahernane House Hotel – was restored in phase two as all 12 rooms were refurbished and the Herbert Room restaurant was brought up to a high-class standard.
Along with all of the work on the original parts of Cahernane House Hotel, an application has recently been lodged to Kerry County Council for planning permission to build an additional 22 bedrooms and more public spaces, including an Orangery

It's just opposite Killarney National Park, Ireland’s largest national park which is surrounded by mountains and lakes, and inhabited by natural wildlife.
Emer Corridan, General Manager of Cahernane House Hotel, said; “We’re really excited to see how the hotel looks once it is finished, because the work that has been carried out so far has been nothing short of exceptional.
"I’m sure that once we open the doors in early March that this will be recognised as one of Ireland’s finest hotels, and it won’t just be a hidden gem anymore."
