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

This is a really lovely little hotel, nestled right beside Carrig Lake amongst some of Kerry's most beautiful scenery. Within driving distance of most of the things you would want to see in Kerry, the hotel is really peaceful and offers excellent cuisine. There are no TV's, no kids, which is great. Just grab a book and relax by the... More

The Carrig House is beautifully appointed and for our Golden Wedding Anniversary it was the perfect setting. We very much appreciated another bed being put in the Presidential Suite making for a good night's sleep all round. Panoramic views of the lake, excellent food (the muesli the best I've ever tasted) and the unobtrusive service made our stay a really... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights availing of the 'chill out' dinner and B and B package. I cannot speak highly enough of Carrig House. The room was spectacular, all the staff were so friendly and the food was exceptional. It was a pleasure to stay here!

This is a jewel of a hotel. We first found it 15 years ago and had our honeymoon there. We have been back many times since but this trip was to celebrate our 15th anniversary. Having read some previous comments, make no mistake - this is a traditional country house hotel. Those of us that love it love the fact... More

This is a beautifully appointed house in a wonderful location, all very pleasing to the eye. The regimental approach to the dining experience, however, is not relaxing. We found it fraught and patronising. All requests and their resolution had to be channeled through Frank. No other staff member had authority to allocate a desired table, discuss the menu, order from... More
