When one of your goals is 'escaping' the ratrace from the modern western world, this is the place to be! Carraig Fhada is only surrounded by beautifull nature en the calming sounds of the sea! No traffic, sounds of industry, just peace and quiet. The building consist of a private part in which Sally (owner) and her husband are living, and attached a house which is used as B&B. It has three rooms. A twin, a double and a familyroom with a single and double bed. The bathroom is shared by all occupants. The bathroom has both shower and bathtub. Water is nicely warm. All rooms are situated on the first floor and have digital TV, coffee & tea making facilities and wifi is also available. The groundfloor offers a livingroom with sofa's and comfy chairs. A big flatscreen is also available for use. What we liked most is the fact that Sally generously offered to use the well-equiped kitchen. We where able to prepare our own food in the evening which is nice if you're on a budget or don't want the hassle of finding a nice place to eat. (There are plenty, but without a car it's quite a challenge) The kitchen has it all, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, oven, the works! This all comes at a more then reasonable price. Full-cooked breakfast jumpstarts your day. The place is also clean, and the beds are really comfortable! Even for big lads like ourselves! We had the house to ourselves, since we where only guests, but we don't see any drawbacks if you are just looking for a nice reasonably priced place to stay. So, as far as we are concerned; Highly recommended!
