“Gorgeous Country House in the heart of Ireland!*”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2012

This is an ideal spot for a few days of tranquility, relaxation, and just simply to get away from everything! The rooms are big and cozy, the views of the lake are beautiful, the food is excellent and the hosts are welcoming and helpful. A true Irish experience that you should not miss! Highly recommended!

The country house came highly recomended....and it didn't disappoint !... Stunning location...in all our travels it rated as one of the best...from the minute you walk in you meet true Irish friendship.Nothing is too much trouble. The hosts ...the owners are just brilliant and create an amazing atmosphere ...add to that fabulous lakeside views from a lovely bedroom and food to die for.....didn't want to leave and can't wait to get back...it won't be long...Stan and Hilary

Just arrived home from a most wonderful weekend break in Carrig House. Everything you could ask for in a relaxing break you have here. Beautiful scenery, beautiful house, tranquility, wonderful hosts & staff.It was our eight visit to Carrig House & it just gets better & better every time. Each time we visited we made new friends which we have kept in touch with.My wife commented as we were leaving that it was like leaving home.So thanks again Frank & Mary for a truly wonderful weekend & hopefully we will have many many more to come.

Room Tip: Look for a room with a lake view

This a beautiful Guesthouse in a fantastic stunning location over looking Caragh Lake near killlorglin. this really is a country retreat where you can get away from it all. The food here is to die for and that manner in which it is presented is just wonderful. Breakfast is the same. The owners are very hands on and very warm and welcoming to all guests. There are no Tv's in the rooms nor mobile phone reception in alot of areas which is just brilliant for this type of break. I hope to return soon

Incredibly lovely! Owners are your hosts. Great value as we had massages, dinners and breakfasts included. There is no bar/tap so you must travel for your pint. There are cocktails, wine and canned beer available but not a pub to hang out.

Room Tip: We splurged for the presidential suite and it was well worth it. You want the lake view if possible...

Frank is a star. He is on hand from the excellent breafast served in a dining room that has superb vista over the lake until the excellent dinner (served in the same dining room) is over. It is an excellent centre from which to exp[lore the Rings of Kerry/Skellig and Beara knowing that there is a welcome glass of wine with which to retreat to your room with a view and a piping hot bath after walking in the magnificent area (probably in the rain). Forget crowded Killarney....stay at Caragh Country House.
