The views from the hotel rooms are to die for and the lovely little sitting rooms and warm fires were a great place for us... More

We had a relaxing and enjoyable stay at Carrig House. We particularly liked meeting the son of Frank and Mary and getting his suggestions for pubs and restaurants in the area. The sitting rooms are warm and comfortable, and we thoroughly enjoyed an after-dinner drink and a good book by the fire. A review would be incomplete without mentioning the... More

It is charming with the most spectacular views of the lake. Our bedroom window overlooked the lake and what a view to wake up to! We had dinner in... More

This is an ideal spot for a few days of tranquility, relaxation, and just simply to get away from everything! The rooms are big and cozy, the views of the lake are beautiful, the food is excellent and the hosts are welcoming and helpful. A true Irish experience that you should not miss! Highly recommended!

Incredibly lovely! Owners are your hosts. Great value as we had massages, dinners and breakfasts included. There is no bar/tap so you must travel for your pint. There are cocktails, wine and canned beer available but not a pub to hang out.
