I visited here in August with my partner and his parents. He had been here before and expectations were high; I was not disappointed! From ordering our meals whilst sitting fire side sipping pre-dinner bubbles to sitting lakeside eating course after course of what can only described as delectable cuisine resulted in four extremely satisfied patrons! The Slattery family should... More

Our sat nav had difficulty finding this hotel - just use a map and head for Caragh Lake. The hotel nestles into the bank of the lake and has a wonderful view over it. The owners and staff are very welcoming and we just a very relaxing time there. We dined in both nights and the food is very good... More

Frank, Mary and Team were wonderful. This was a very intimate experience. The room had an excellent view of the lake and the food was wonderful. Very nice grounds as well. Excellent experience all around.

Beautiful location right on carragh lake. Views are spectacular from the rooms and dining rooms. When we arrived we had tea in the drawing room looking out over the lake. Staff/owners very helpful and friendly. Made us feel at home. No tvs in bedroom which felt bit strange and bad mobile reception which adds to feeling of escaping it all.... More

Very comfortable manor hotel with a welcoming staff, but it's the restaurant that sets it apart. Was not expecting such gastronomy in a remote Irish inn, but the food quality compares quite favorably to Michelin-starred restaurants in Paris.

Stayed at the hotel for 3 nights on a dinner, bed & breakfast package. Dinner options were outstanding I would say in my Top #5 ever - highly recommended. Service was generally outstanding, very attentive and personal. Stayed in Room 12 which was supposed to be a premium room with 'lake view'. Unfortunately the massive tree you can see in... More

Just finished a 'Blue Book' tour of 4 stays (2 nights each) of which Carrig was the final one. No doubt we happened to keep the best to last. The service was fantastic. We were welcomed outside the front door and ushered inside to a very welcome drink. The room was very large and very comfortable. We ate dinner both... More

We stayed for a couple of nights and the service and welcome were excellent; the guesthouse is a bit tatty in places and is quite expensive in that context; the bathroom needs improvement; however, the location, service, welcome and food were faultless and very moreish. I would return in a heartbeat.

Our travel agent booked this country house at the last minute when there was no availability in Killarney due to a bicycle race the weekend we were there. He described this as a "hidden gem" and it did not disappoint. We were welcomed at the door by the owner who showed us to our room, arranged for our luggage to... More

We recently spent 1 night in May at the Carrig Country house. The location is stunning. We were upgraded to a room with a lake view and it was truly beautiful. The style of the hotel is something special -- all antique. It feels like you are stepping into the 20s. The staff was very kind and accommodating. We were... More
