“Excellent B and B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2007

We stayed at Castle view house for a very enjoyable 3 days,on each of which we were provided with a delicious breakfast and a superb four course meal each evening.
The setting of the house itself is postcard perfect, with our room affording an unspoilt view of the castle from which the house draws its name. Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean, with our linen being renewed daily.
Our hosts were amongst the most courteous and forthcoming we have had the pleasure of dealing with, not only providing excellent food, but also making us feel very welcome.
Overall, an excellent B and B which is extremely good value, run in a most welcoming manner.

The island of Carrig is a beautiful area and we were lucky enough to stay at the Castle View House B&B overlooking the castle. We spent five enjoyable days here where our freshly cooked full Irish breakfasts were delicious.

Our room was kept clean and tidy and the linen was changed regularly. When next in the area we will definitely return.

Very good value for money.

Although the owners were very nice and we got a hearty welcome we couldn't enjoy our stay at Carrig Island.

The location is great, but the B&B needs some renovation.
The linen and towels had holes or were tattered and the furniture had also a lot of signs of wear and tear.

Nevertheless everything was clean (even the floor under (!!) the beds and the corners).

The bathroom was very very small and we kept the door open to avoid claustrophobia. The shower changed from cold to hot and back to cold and we had problems to escape the sudden hot water, because the shower room was so small.

In the morning we had to wait a bit longer for our breakfast because the owner overslept. So we had to ring at the door bell to wake him up.

I don't care about old furnish, old linen etc., as long as it is clean and intact, but unfortunately it wasn't intact.

So if you don't care about an older B&B, where the arrangement isn't the newest one and had already a lot of visible sign of wear and tear you can stay there. It is also one of the cheaper B&Bs.

After a renovation of the furniture, linen and towels I would recommend the Castle View House, because the location is great and the owners are very nice.

The Castle View's owners were extremely courteous, and quite earnest in their efforts, but I must warn the prospective customer: the place is really in need of some updates. The linens were almost rags, bathrooms were very small and outdated, and the facility was generally a bit of a mess (back rooms look out over a cluttered family back lawn. Food was ok, though overpriced for the quality.
