The views here are stunning and the property clearly well looked after. The furniture in the room was stunning, and facilities excellent. The welcome was friendly and welcoming and the service was excellent at both breakfast and dinner. Food was delicious and the presentation beautiful. Didn't have anything to complain about except the lack of wifi in the bedroom however...

There is a newspaper article hanging in the hotel stating what a paradise it is, and I can't agree hardily enough! The property was simply gorgeous (we were there when the wisteria on the front of the house was in bloom), and the garden was a delight. Frank and his staff were simply amazing! We felt welcome, and they made...

We stayed in Carrig House for a few days at the beginning of May and had an amazing time there. Frank and all his staff made us so welcome and were so helpful and friendly. This is such a beautiful old house, overlooking Caragh Lake, so peaceful and relaxing. The view of the lake is fantastic, from most of the...

We simply loved the Carrig Country House. It was one of the highlights of our trip in Ireland. The Carrig Country House is located right at the Caragh Lake, not really far from Killarney, but it seems a totally different world. At arrival, one discovers the beautiful gardens surrounding the House. When entering the house, we had the feeling to...

Nice villa with a good restaurant at the lake. Great view. Good location to start a day trip. The restaurant is not open during all days of the week. If closed, you will find many restaurants in Killorglin just 5 km from the house. Friendly and helpfull owner. Internet connection (WIFI and 3G) is very poor.

We have stayed in many 5 star hotels and very good they have been too. Carrig Country House is such a different experience. You are welcomed as a guest in a beautiful Country House. Imagine joining an Irish Lord for the weekend! Except that Frank and his staff have no "airs and Graces" just superb hospitality, friendliness and helpfulness. Just...

Stayed in October for a relaxing break and it was all of that! Frank and the team gave us a tremendous warm welcome, He really did everything that he could to make us enjoy ourselves. I suppose, he understood that people are on their break from their stressful lives! We had a lovely room on the ground floor which opened...

As a Country House, Carrig House is truly peerless. If you want to wind down and relax in a really quiiet atmosphere this is for you. Our room overlooking Carragh Lake was very comfortable and restful and so quiet. But if you are looking for In-room TV, Fridge, Tea/coffee making kettle or In-room Safe, Carrig House is not for you....

Myself and my husband stayed here for a weekend in September 2016 and had a fantastic stay. The owners met us with a lovely warm welcome and were that perfect mix of available when you needed them but discreet and unobtrusive when you didn't! Lovely people. Beautiful house and room with the most amazing view of the lake. Gorgeous sitting...

A wonderful Country House Hotel along the shores of Caragh Lake, Co Kerry, located a short drive from the town of Killorglin on the Iveragh Peninsula [Ring of Kerry]. Our bedroom #14 on the top floor with a lovely view overlooking the lake and the mountains beyond, was nicely decorated and most comfortable. The breakfast was excellent with several choices...
