This B&B is 5mins walk from train station. Rooms are big, clean and nicely decorated. Water is always hot and you have tea, coffee and biscuits. It’s so quiet at night which lends for a great night’s sleep. The owner is so nice and unbelievably helpful. I will definitely be back.

Check in time at this B&B was 3 pm however our hosts were really gracious and allowed us early check in at 1.15 pm. The town centre is walking distance from the accommodation and so we parked at the B&B. Our room was very spacious, with a modern ensuite, and was located on the ground floor. The breakfast room is towards the back of the house with lovely views of the garden and is decorated with souvenirs from Kenya. We had a lovely hot breakfast the following morning before leaving for the Rock of Cashel. A most comfortable stay. Recommend highly.

Philip met us at the door and showed us right to our room even though we were a couple hours early. Sat in the lounge for a cup of tea before going exploring. Walked into town to see some sights and pick out a restaurant/pub for dinner. Lots to choose from in town. Bed was comfortable and warm. We chose scrambled eggs and smoked salmon for breakfast. Perfect for one of our last days in Ireland. I definitely recommend Carraig Rua!!

Simple booking process. Stayed here recently, excellent ! Very clean and comfortable. Well situated to see the town attractions. Off road parking. Order breakfast at time of booking, although breakfast is served from 08.00. Full Irish breakfast is excellent. Wi-fi available. Heartily recommended.

Very hospitable hosts…Short walk to city Center… Clean & and good breakfast! Parking was a little sparse but there was a choice to park two doors down. Shower pressure was very low. Overall, a good place to stay
