Stayed in Carrig Beag for a week with my husband,my one year old and my mam.We had a fab stay.House is lovely and in a quiet place yet is only a 5 min stroll to the centre of Kenmare with its lovely shops,pubs and restaurants.Brill base to explore Kerry.The house has nice outdoor back and front areas with seating.The neighbours are nice and quiet.The house has a fresh and modern feel throughout with downstairs having a lovely kitchen and nice sitting room.The glass tables could be a hazard though.Upstairs has two bedrooms,one with ensuite and then there is a separate bathroom.The bathrooms are lovely.The bedrooms are fine but the bed in the double room is quite low to the ground and there is a strong musty smell of the wardrobe.These are just minor things though because overall we had a fab time in this house.It is good value and I would def recommend and would love to return some day.
Trip Advisor helped us pick Kenmare as a place to stay in Kerry and we found Jeremy Foley's cottages on a general search of the net. We picked Carrig Beag because we wanted to be within walking distance of the town (and the pubs) and it turned out to be perfect in every way. This restored terrace has been comfortably furnished and provides roomy, quiet accommodation for 4 adults. There is a separate bathroom and an ensuite and the kitchen is well equipped. Only 100 metres to the market square of this beautiful, colourful village, there are (I think) about 6 pubs to choose from and many restaurants. In the opposite direction (about 50 metres) is an ancient stone circle and behind the house is a path leading down to "Cromwells Bridge" which crosses the rushing village stream.
Pick up of the key is simple and enjoyable as it occurs in O'Donnabhains (which is Jeremy's pub) and instructions are provided over a pint of the finest. I cannot recommend this cottage more highly nor Kenmare as the ideal spot to explore the Ring of Kerry, the (I think more impressive) Ring of Beara or southwest Ireland generally.
