Our stay at this quaint and well appointed house was fabulous. The house itself is charming with an amazing view overlooking Lake Caragh. Two of the four mornings here we woke up to rainbows and it made us feel like we were experiencing the real Ireland!! One of the reasons we chose this accommodation over others was the ideal location. It is perfectly situated to explore the Dingle peninsula, the Ring of Kerry and Killarney. We had looked at staying in the Dingle area but glad we didn't as it would have been that much further to drive each day to the other places we wanted to visit. It was nice to stay in a quiet, beautiful, peaceful place but still only be minutes from the charming town of Killorglin where you will find everything you need. Highlights: the bog village, the bakery in town, the fresh caught smoked salmon and the beautiful scenery. Annette was fabulous to work with and was there to greet us and walk us through the cottage. We did quite a bit of sight seeing but reserved time to just hang out and enjoy our charming cottage as well as spend time getting to know the locals, I highly recommend the Fishery Bar where Mike, the owner, treated us like family and we got the chance to meet many local sheep farmers and cattle ranchers and had a splendid night chatting with them. Also had the very best fish and chips as well as oysters at the Towers hotel that I've ever had!! What a wonderful place!! Will definitely be back :)

“Heaven in Ireland”
Reviewed September 28, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

A| wonderful welcome from a smiling face. A comprehensive intro' rundown of the property & its services.The owner & her family live only a short distance away &. offer an immediate response to any queries you may have.There are many top-end restaurants within a short walk/drive as well as pubs-some with conversation others with Trad- Irish music & bar-food.We would recommend Jack's in Cromane, Nick's in Killorglin & Carreg House hotel en-route to Glenbeigh for the former & Glenbeigh Hotel,The Red Fox en-route to Killorglin which itself has many bars,delis & a good Aldi ( don't miss Flavey's Pub we enjoyed it having great CRAIC with the owner & locals)In season. given favourable conditions the game fishing could be good, however we experienced an Indian Summer - not good for the angler.THE VIEW IS STUNNING,THE SUNSETS MEDITERRANEAN -DON'T MISS!

“Spectacular view - great welcome.”
Reviewed September 7, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Annette was very welcoming and friendly.

The house was good, but it was the location and the view across the lake and mountains down to the sea that was really special. The view changed every minute and watching the view, drink in hand is a great way to spend an afternoon or evening.

Don't expect to be able to get any sort of weather forecast for the area, just look out of the window....and in five minutes it will change.....and five minutes later change again.

The local town of Killorglin is 10 minutes away and has a handy supermarket, shops, bars and restaurants. Its an easy drive along good roads. There are also petrol stations where you can buy coal and wood for the open fire (we stayed during a "cooler" week in the summer and made good use of the fire!).

The beach at Rossbeigh was sandy and great for surfing (www.magicseaweed.com gives a surf forecast) and families. It was closed for the weekend at the end of our stay because of a horse racing event.

Carragh Heights is ideally placed for visiting the Skelligs, Killarney or Tralee.

Broadband Internet connection is good (5Mb/s) and mobile phone reception at the house was good for us.

Good house, well situated for getting around and a view that you will never tire of.

“Lovely cottage in a fabulous location”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We chose Caragh Heights because it looked like a peaceful location with a lovely view, but it turned out to exceed our expectations with a fabulous vista over Lake Caragh and the Dingle Peninsula beyond. The cottage is spacious and comfortable, ideal for a family and very well equipped. We made good use of the free wi fi. It's ideally located to reach all the main sights in Kerry and we were very impressed with the beautiful landscape, coastal walks and museums. Kilorglin is a short drive and has lots of good shops and places to eat and Kerry Airport is just half an hour's drive. All in all we had a wonderful time during our week at Caragh Heights and hope to be back in the future.

“Very nice home with beautiful view over Caragh Lake”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 for a stay in October 2013

We went to Caragh Heights in october 2013. It was really beautiful. We arrived at Kerry airport and got a rental car there. After a short drive of about 30 Minutes we arrived at our Caragh Heights Holiday Home and where welcome by a fantastic view over Caragh lake and a very friendly owner. She told us all we need to know about our home for the next eight days and gave us several tips about the tours we wanted to do at that time.
The house was very clean and really nice overall. We had all we need there and it was a really great stay at Caragh Heights.

“perfect place with astonishing view”

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Caragh Heights holiday home in February 2014. The directions to get to the meeting point were perfect. The place itself is astounding. Very quiet, astonishing view and the house itself has everything you want. Very clean upon arrival. All the needed instructions were given by the very welcoming host Anette. The only negative remark I could give was the absence of internet, however, we knew that upfront and with surroundings and views like that we didn't really miss it at all. A perfect place to stay if you want to visit the ring of Kerry or if you want a quiet place to stay. For us it was a perfect and we're allready thinking of going back.

“A mixture of tranquility, beauty and comfort.”
Reviewed January 9, 2014 for a stay in September 2012

It is not a mistake. From the very first moment in Caragh Heights Holiday Home you feel at home. Even though I stayed there by my own, I found the place perfectly organized for two couples with their children. I loved the tranquility and waking up with a dire grazing in the front yard and the lake at the background. What a picture for someone who live most of his life in a city like Tel-Aviv. The kitchen is well equipped and the house provides everything needed for a very comfortable vacation. But on top I can't forget how Annette the owner, travelled a few kilometers to Killorglin to pick me up the moment she heard I lost the instruction to get to the house. I warmly recommend Caragh Heights Holiday for those who are visiting the unforgettable landscapes of the Ring of Kerry
