If you want a quiet get-away-from-it-all break, then this could be your place. Tucked away in a lovely garden right on the shore of lake Caragh with superb mountain views..... And no telly! Yes there is no television in the rooms, a communal tv room does the job! Little or no phone reception adds to the cut off feeling!! The dinner is amazing and yes the good is as good as all other reviewers said it is. The breakfast is not as superb with a B&B feel to it, but you can forgive this after you have had the lovely dinner! Yes the hospitality is great, all staff take an interest without being in your face. We were in a Room 10 and it had breathtaking views over the lake and mountain and one you could stay looking at all day. The bathroom was true old house feeling with the wooden floor and large bath. We were there for two days and had a lovely rest but a third day would have tested my husbands patience without his tv!the town of killorglin is ten minutes with Tralee and Killarney about twenty mins away, glenbeigh jus down the road and I am sure this is a Lively Spot in the summer but was eerily quiet when we passed through. Carrig House is not cheap and it's not for those looking for a wide range of activities, there is no leisure centre or spa just bright open rooms where you can sit and read a book, oh yeah no phone reception either but it does have free wifi! Overall it had the feeling that you are guests in someone's house but perhaps that's a good thing nowadays as it's so different to the anonymous hotels. So..... It's v v quiet, superb dinner, great views but bring a book!
