Stayed here for two nights, when we arrived at 2 in the afternoon to check in we were the only car in the car park but that quickly changed later on in the day when locals and tourists arrived for dinner.

After a day of touring the country we found ourselves at the dinner hour with no clear plans. We came across Carna Bay and stopped for dinner but ended up spending the night. The family suite was spacious and spotless. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. This is a wonderful find!

The Diamond Mountain centers this park and is quite a challenge for trained walkers. For People like us, the blue...

This is a 3 star hotel with good food, very clean and fairly basic. As long as you know not to expect luxury, it is ideal as a base for touring. Nice location with the sea and beaches only minutes away. Many of these are very rocky with a lot of seaweed though. Quiet too but the bar etc could...

We were looking for a pet-friendly hotel which it is. The rooms and facilities are modern, well-maintained and very comfortable. There was good quality free wi-fi.
