We arrived at Carrigeen Castle and our mouths dropped open as we drove up the drive. What a beautiful home and just then a rainbow showed itself over the castle so we thought it was a sign that it was meant to be! Peig was a wonderful hostess and her breakfast fantastic! We had the entire upper level of the castle and it was perfect, since there was 4 of us. We felt like we were in our own little castle apartment. Very clean. The spiril staircase was a chore getting up, but think of how old this home is! We survived and would come back again, if we return to Ireland. The bathroom was updated and very clean. The yard beautiful. What a change of pace of places to stay. And who doesn't want to sleep in a castle?! You know you do!!
