Another Blue Book diamond! We spent two nights here with our 5 month old. Absolutely amazing food and luxurious accommodation. Sitting back over afternoon tea whilst enjoying the fantastic views over Caragh lake. So relaxing! Loved the walks up around Caragh lake. Thanks very much Frank & Mary Slattery (plus daughter Claire) for making our stay so enjoyable. Can't wait... More

Visited Carrig House for the first time this week with friends. As a Kerry native living in nearby county Cork, it's been on my bucket list for quite some time, so I was thrilled to finally have visited this week. The house is so beautiful, full of old world charm, so well maintained, with history and character in every inch... More

Carrig House is a beautiful old house on Caragh Lake near Killorglin. It has several relaxing, comfortable drawing rooms to relax in. Open fires are lit and candles burn! We were welcomed with a cup of tea and some homemade fruitcake and biscuits. The restaurant food is excellent. The gardens are lovely and there are several routes down to the... More

Wanted somewhere to stay for a few days with my mother that had some style and class and proper old school service. Boy oh boy has this place lived up and exceeded what I wanted. From the warm welcome of tea with homemade biscuits and fruit cake to the simple politeness of remembering our names to say hello to us... More

This place is really special. We stayed here for the last two nights of a bike tour. We asked our travel agent to upgrade us to a junior suite to celebrate a wedding anniversary and when we arrived, they upgraded us to Room #1, their "Presidential Suite." Well, I didn't realize that country houses had presidential suites but this one... More

This is a very quaint inn with lovely rooms and a strong management presence that is eager to please. It is off the beaten path adding to the relaxed atmosphere. We were in room 7 which faced the lake and had an outdoor patio. The room was very large The reason this is not a five star location is due... More

The first stop on our BackRoad's Hiking Tour was a surprise and delight. Sitting majestically at the side of a lake, with a beautiful view of the mountains - the Carrig Country House was warm and its proprietors gracious and friendly. Five delightful sitting rooms, each with a unique character are available in the evening for conversation, quiet reading or... More
