It takes a while to get there but so rewarding when you do. From the moment you turn in the gate its obvious that this place is owned and managed by people who really care. We had considered a bigger more well known hotel but friends recommended Carrick House. I am delighted that they did. The personal but not intrusive... More

We loved everything about Carrig House. Frank, the owner is very friendly and helpful. A cup of tea plus cakes ( or a glass of wine) was served on the terrace when we arrived! The view of Caragh Lake is stunning! You can see Carrantouhill in the back ground! It is the most beautiful place! The room was big and... More

We arrived here after a long journey in sunshine but slightly cool to a very warm welcome by Siobhan. We were immediately offered afternoon tea by a roaring fire surrounded by very comfy sofas. A glorious sunny room with beautiful view overlooking the lake. After tea we were shown our room which again was glorious. Spacious,light, and overlooking the lake.... More

Very personal and friendly welcome. Location overlooking Caragh Lake extremely beautiful. Unfortunatelly restaurant was not open. But breakfast was very good. Quiet setting in landscaped gardens. Lots of good hiking trails in the area.

Set overlooking Caragh Lake, Carrig Country House is the perfect hideaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Staff are helpful, efficient and friendly, and the food is sublime. It is located on the Ring Of Kerry, an ideal vantage point for discovering the beauty if the Kerry coastline and mountains. We'll be back!

The country house is in a beautiful setting, rooms are clean and nicely furnished. We were made to feel very welcome on arrival with afternoon tea. Staff and owners were very friendly and food is great! Good value.

I'm writing this review a little too long after our stay here and can't remember the finer details like the names of the owners, but it would be remiss of me not to recommend this place. We arrived at night and so were amazed in the morning by the stunning view of the lake that spanned out in front of... More

Wonderful B and B with welcoming hosts. Our room overlooked the lake and it was gorgeous and restful.Very convenient for driving the Dingle Peninsula and the Ring of Kerry. Breakfasts were wonderful as was the dinner. Frank and Mary were wonderful hosts, full of lots of ideas and information. Very happy that we stayed there.

I cannot rate this place any higher. Our room was gorgeous and very well appointed, our dinner was outstanding and the welcome we had from Frank and Mary (the owners) was fantastic. If you're looking for a beautiful and relaxing lakeside retreat then this the place. I will be recommending it to all of my friends and family.

This place has to be visited to be experienced, the house, the rooms, the views and the food are all out of this world. We stayed for two nights and have two breakfasts and evening meals and I'd drive the 200 mile or whatever it is from Dublin right now, just to have another one of their fantastic dinners. Lovely...
