Cahir House Hotel is a very unique Old World Hotel
It’s history is an inextricable part of Tipperary’s history. Generations have used the hotel as the resting point on their journey since the time of the Bianconi horse drawn coaches.
Cahir House replaced Cahir Castle in the 1770’s as the ancestral home of the Butlers of Cahir, whose titles include Barons of Cahir and Earls of Glengall. Cahir House was ‘home’ to Lord Cahir’s family until 1961 when Richard Butler Charteris died, thus ending a 600 year association between the Butlers and Cahir. In 1927 Miss Nora Burke leased the premises and opened Cahir House Hotel.
Over the years the hotel has paid host to such illuminaries as De Valera, W.T. Cosgrave, Mae West, Douglas Fairbanks, Walt Disney, Jackie Kennedy etc. A long tradition of warm Irish Hospitality awaits the visitor to Cahir House Hotel.
Set like a jewel in the centre of the heritage town of Cahir, Cahir House Hotel offers the visitor an opportunity to enjoy modern comforts with old world charm and elegance.
The Castle Suite and the Galtee Suite:
In 1793 it was noted that “Lord Cahir gave a most flaming fete champetre in Cahir House where the company dined under marquees on the lawn and danced all evening. Lady Cahir danced an Irish jig in her stockings to the music of an old blind piper. We had a superb supper in the three largest rooms, all crowded as full as they could and we did not get home till eight o’clock in the morning and so slept all the ne
xt day.” (D. Herbert 1793). This tradition for exceptional functions has been maintained down through the years with famous Hunt Balls and Society Dinners right through to the present day.
