Kenmare House for Rent

Kenmare House, a newly refurbished stately residence nestled in the private woodlands of the Killarney National Park, is opening as a luxury private accommodation destination. This estate offers picturesque views, a historical legacy and an unparalleled location in the heart of Killarney.

The self-catering country home can accommodate up to 14 guests in 8 bedrooms and offers an array of accommodation options, including King Rooms, a Junior King Room, and Superior Double and Single Rooms.

Kenmare House's illustrious history dates back centuries, beginning with the arrival of the Browne family in Killarney in the sixteenth century. This, the last Kenmare House, was once the cherished abode of Beatrice Grosvenor, the final member of the Browne family, Earls of Kenmare, who had resided in Killarney since 1587. Notably, Queen Victoria graced Kenmare House with her presence during her visit to Killarney in 1861.

After Beatrice Grosvenor's tenure, Kenmare House underwent several transitions before being restored and refurbished by the present owners, the Kelleher family, and Castlerosse Park Resort. This collaboration marks a new chapter in the history of successive Kenmare Houses, residences of the Earls of Kenmare.
