I recently attended the newly refurbished Herbert restaurant at Cahernane House for a family gathering. The service was wonderful, preparation, presentation and taste of food was exceptional. The atmosphere and attention to detail to ensure we had a wonderful evening was spot on. A great team and I wish everyone at Cahernane every success.

Top rate restaurant, five stars in my book at the beautiful Cahernane Hotel. Delicious food and excellent menu. Service outstanding. There's a lovely lounge/pub downstairs with a fireplace as well which you might overlook.

Had staff Christmas party within majestic surroundings of Cahernane House recently. Every member of our team was really exited on the occasion of visiting this hoary establishment. However we were not even close in our speculations and expectations of what actually was prepared for us that evening and night. Short drive through hundred-year old park exposes well lit mansion and... More

I have had the good fortune to dine in the Herbert room on 3 occasions recently. The warm welcome on arrival is replicated across the whole team. The menu is always uncomplicated but varied and Chef Paul O'Connor has an exceptional talent for combining wonderful flavour, texture and presentation in every course. The pace is very relaxing and the ambience... More

On the night we dined it was very busy and service was fantastic.We had delicious starters of Goats Cheese and scallops , both very high quality and presented perfectly. The scallops were... More

Normally I prefer not to eat in hotel dining rooms as it is nice to go out locally and it is often better as well. However, our dinner was part of our weekend package. Cahernane has a very attractive, warm and welcoming dining room but this would be of small matter if the food was not as good as it... More

We had the worse experience we've had in ages. Having said that many others have told us how well they ate there so we believe we were just very unlucky. It happens. Service was definitely sup-par for a place trying to do something special. Having said that this is all new and if well managed I have no doubt it... More

My friends and I had dinner at Herbert Restaurant while we were staying at the Cahernane House Hotel, where Herbert Restaurant is located. We where a little skeptics when we saw that there were very little reviews on Tripadvisor, but the breakfast we'd had in the morning was exquisitely cooked and the dinner menu was intriguing, so we decided to...
