Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

I returned for my second stay at Coolclogher House, this time with a group of 14. I felt like I was coming home again. Mary and Maurice were again so welcoming and eager to make our stay memorable. The spacious house accommodated our group. Every bedroom was lovely and we delighted in our times together in the elegant dining room, the inviting sitting rooms and spacious and welcoming kitchen. The grounds, the surrounding Irish landscape, the proximity to Killarney National Park and the town center provided a great launching spot for excursions throughout southwestern Ireland. Coolclogher House remains a wonderful, beautiful home.

Coolcloger is a Rare Gem

  • 5 of 5

We are a large family (12, including a 6 month old and a 2 year old) that likes to travel together. Of the many amazing vacations we've enjoyed, our stay at the Coolcloger House was at the very top of our list. The website gives a mere suggestion of the delights that await Coolclogher guests. The home, minutes from Killarney, has been restored by its owners, Mary and Maurice Harnett, to its former glory, with beautiful antiques, exquisite wallpapers, and historic paint colors. The bedrooms are perfectly appointed, each with its own bath and breathtaking vistas from every room to the Kerry countryside. The beds/pillows are very comfortable, the linens fresh and white and crisp. The kitchen is very well outfitted, complete with a 6-burner Aga oven/range. There are several large gathering spaces, and multiple fireplaces, one of which was prepared for us every night. Yet, Coolcloger is not austere; every space is inviting and comfortable. We felt all week like we were at the home of some generous relative. Mary and Maurice were on hand as needed throughout our stay to advise and guide us about everything from outings, meals (she has outstanding chefs on hand who can prepare meals as desired), shopping (she drove us to her butcher and baker), and even party planning. On this last point, let me say that she orchestrated a elegant dinner at Coolclogher for my husband's birthday, which included rack of lamb, a homemade birthday cake, and live Irish music and dancing. What a night! I wanted to cry (in fact, I did cry) when we left. Our family always wants to choose a new adventure when planning travel, but we all agree we'll return to Coolclogher!

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!
