“Absolutely delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

We recently enjoyed a fabulous meal in Carnaween, the starters of mushrooms on brioche toast with a poached egg and monkfish with prawns were class! The main courses and desserts were equally delicious, great value for money and staff that were so nice, will definitely be back!

“Lovely Setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

Family meal in this lovely setting overlooking the fabulous Narin beach ..service was good, food was good enough and we had a wonderful evening. I see that they now have people staying which would also add to the experience.

“Carnaween House”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

We called on spec and were lucky to be able to take advantage of a cancellation. We got 'The best room in the House' (Room 9) according to the lady who booked us in, and I'd have to agree. Large clean bedroom with ensuite and a view from the window you couldn't pay for. We overlooked the beach which seemed to go on forever. We booked a table and both enjoyed or food and the service. Staff were helpful and friendly although we didn't make any unusual demands from them.
The only reason we didn't give this the full 5* was the dissappointing breakfast. We both ordered the Full Irish Breakfast and what arrived was a plate full of greasy food. My plate was missing sausages and it appears as if they simply deep fry everything. Other than that this weas a brilliant location and accomodation
