In stark contrast to most bed and breakfasts in Ireland, the Carrig Country House was stilted, stiff and downright unfriendly. For example, the proprietors left us hanging for dinner on our arrival. Specifically, we spoke to them continually on our date of arrival, a Saturday, in an effort to obtain directions and once in Killorglin, locate the inn. When we finally arrived at 6:30 p.m., we asked about dinner and were told that they were fully booked for dinner with customers not staying at the inn. We were then forced to turn around and drive back to town, and attempt to find a restaurant that would take us at the last minute on a Saturday night -- no small doing. Most annoyingly, in none of our telephone conversations that Saturday did they mention that we should stop for dinner before coming to their inn, given that they were fully booked. In addition, the proprietors made our family feel "unwelcome" in many small ways, despite that our children are incredibly well behaved and caused no inconvenience to them or other guests.
