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...

Wonderful location, also for getting to places in Kerry and on the Dingle peninsula, friendly communications and booking, as well as the reception by the owners on arrival, the house is beautiful, so are the grounds, the views pleasant, the surroundings absolutely quiet, the service and food excellent, and we did like that we did not see any TV set!...

We spent 2 nights in this hotel recently and it was one of the most relaxing places I have visited. We had a wonderful room with a view over the lake which was just magical. The public areas are very spacious and well laid out and the log fires are very welcoming. The dining room is very well furnished and...

We had a lovely stay at carrig house and the staff were just lovely especially the lady that was serving in the dining room. I failed to get her name but she was very professional and just so nice. I loved the house and grounds but to be fair the bedrooms could do with a tiny bit of modernisation. Even...

My wife and I were on a four day road trip and stayed at apparently top spec locations but were left feeling fairly underwhelmed. Carrig House however absolutely hit the spot for the relaxed country feel, sincere welcome and effortless homely feel. We stayed for two nights and loved the food, excellent menu choice, fantastic service and first rate accommodation...

We stayed at Carrig Country House for three nights and really enjoyed it. We were given a room (#15) with a beautiful view of the lake, and found it to be quite comfortable with a really great shower. The location of the inn is perfect for exploring both the Ring of Kerry and Dingle Island, and Frank's tips on where...
