We had a lovely stay at carrig house and the staff were just lovely especially the lady that was serving in the dining room. I failed to get her name but she was very professional and just so nice. I loved the house and grounds but to be fair the bedrooms could do with a tiny bit of modernisation. Even... More

My wife and I were on a four day road trip and stayed at apparently top spec locations but were left feeling fairly underwhelmed. Carrig House however absolutely hit the spot for the relaxed country feel, sincere welcome and effortless homely feel. We stayed for two nights and loved the food, excellent menu choice, fantastic service and first rate accommodation... More

We stayed at Carrig Country House for three nights and really enjoyed it. We were given a room (#15) with a beautiful view of the lake, and found it to be quite comfortable with a really great shower. The location of the inn is perfect for exploring both the Ring of Kerry and Dingle Island, and Frank's tips on where... More

What an amazing place. We stayed for 2 nights and I couldn't fault one thing during our stay. From our arrival, complimentary teas/coffees cake & biscuits. Dinner on both nights was fantastic. The hospitality was 5 star. Such a warm welcome by Frank who took the time out to talk to everyone and ensure they were OK and calling you... More

My second time visiting with a large party and the food was once again exceptional. Great variety on offer and service is second to none. Had rabbit to start and halibut for mains. Good size portions but of the highest quality.

We stayed two nights at this charming country inn while hiking in Kerry. The owners Frank and Ann are lovely and were gracious hosts as we're all of the staff. The restaurant is award winning and well deserving of the honor. Definitely not a place to miss!

Just spent a fantastic weekend at Carrig House with the wonderful hosts Frank and Mary. Our bedroom was gorgeous with a spectacular view over the lake to the mountains in the background. Food was excellent and the staff were friendly and most efficient. All in all a 10/10 experience. We will be back.

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
