“In County Kerry we also found the perfect place to stay, the Carrig Country House, on the shores of Caragh Lake, which is fringed with mountains unsullied by development. The Carrig Country House typifies the kind of inn that Ireland does especially well — more cozy than ostentatious, brimming with antiques, scented by wood-burning fireplaces, surrounded by meticulously tended gardens”.
