Currane Lodge

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 16, 2012

Myself and my friend was on a photography shoot over in the west coast of Ireland and decided to stop with Ann and the family. It was a wonderful stay and the breakfast was big and hearty especially if your going to be out all day.
The warm welcome you get is home from home and Ann and Eamon's local knowledge is priceless when it comes to places off the beaten track to visit.

The rooms where acceptable but had certain functional and cosmetic fixes to be addressed but apart from that it was a wonderful stay.

Highly recommended B&B.

Thank you

On our arrival to Currane Lodge the first thing to strike us was the abundance of weeds, the patio door which was the entrance to the house was filthy. The hostess showed little interest in us when we declinced to have evening meal there. Our bedroom was very small with both a double and a single bed in it. The bedlinen was torn on the double bed. For breakfast you have to choose between frest fruit or a cooked breakfast, the crockery consisted of big mugs and no saucers. The homemade scones came out of the freezer and were reheated in the microwave. Our stay here ruined out trip to Waterville which is a beautiful place.

Dear reviewer, thank you for taking the time to write a review , we appreciate constructive criticism, as it helps us improve our service. Currane Lodge above all is my home and I welcome every guest even if you do not wish to dine with us, evening meals are provided as an extra service for those who do not wish to go out in the evening and if a guest chooses to dine elsewhere we will recommend several good local establishments as I did for you. We use mugs instead of tiny cups which allows for a decent quantity of tea or coffee with refills available, Our breakfast menu is highly regarded and consists of orange juice and a choice of cereals to start with followed by a choice between
1 ..a full Irish
2.. fresh fruit and yougart platter
3..Pancakes with lemon and sugar
4. Pancakes with golden syrup
5..scrambled eggs on toast
6..baked beans on toast
All my scones and brown bread are freshly baked each morning by myself.
The bed linen was not torn. The evening you arrived was raining and the patio door may have been dirthy as I have a 3 year old toddler who likes to put his hands on it ! Unfortunately my garden was not looking its best as I lost many plants to the harsh winter and had to wait until last autum to replant. A rating of terrible is perhaps a bit harsh since you did not articulate any dissatisfaction during your stay even though you were asked at breakfast if everything was ok and again on departure . Yet you have waited approx 8 months to make your feelings known. I am sorry that your visit did not live up to your expectations as it is our wish that everyone enjoys their experience of a warm and genuine Irish welcome and comfortable stay with us. I wish you well. Kind regards Ann McCarthy owner Currane Lodge

My wife and I stayed one night at Currane Lodge in December. Very comfortable B&B located a few miles from the town of Waterville. Quiet location with a wonderful view of the lake from the bedroom and breakfast room. The lake is truly an amazing sight to behold. Ann was very friendly and we enjoyed getting to know her and her adorable children. Our room was nice although nothing spectacular. You could feel the springs in the bed but we both actually slept very comfortably. Ann gave us a few options for breakfast the night before and we were not disappointed with our choices. Waterville is very quiet this time of year which made it difficult to enjoy the area. B&B was very reasonably priced. Overall, a very good stay.

Beautiful location, a bit away from the centre of Waterville but in a fantastic rural spot with superb views and lovely peace and quiet. The room was fine, the breakfast lovely and Ann was a nice lady and very good host. Of the 45 reviews here on tripadvisor, 44 are either good or excellent - that's all you need to know! Only regret is we didn't have long enough here.

Could not have asked for a more scenic and hospitable place to stay. My partner and I stayed for two nights and will definately return. The room was spacious, clean and breakfast was excellent - especially the home cooked scones. We had to leave early on the last morning and Ann could not have been more helpful. Would recommend the accomodation to those people looking for a quite relaxing holiday. Thanks again Ann.

Visiting the Southwest of Ireland we found this great B&B by accident. We have fully enjoyed the relaxing environment. The view from this B&B is spectacular, looking out over the big lake and one of the mountains. We have been told this is a good spot for fisherman as well.
During our stay the hostess, Ann, take good care of both breakfast and supper. And she was also really kind in giving us advice about walking/ hiking routes and 'must-sees'. Visiting this place you really get value for money and much more. Just check it out yourself!

This has been my third visit to the Currane-Lodge and I could only make myself leave there with the firm promise of returning very soon. This time, again, we had booked the self-catering accomodation, which is fully equipped for up to 6 people with everything a person could want for their holiday (up to Espresso-making-facilities and Jacuzzi!).
Ann was as formidable a hostess as always, her family is friendly and very welcoming.
Not to forget: Currane Lodge is located very close to the Ring of Kerry and the Atlantic-coast, but still a paradise for those seeking peace and quiet.
Thank you so much! I'll be back :)
