Welcome to Carrig
– the most enchanting Country House Hotel on the Ring of Kerry
As a seasonal business, Carrig House will close for 2015 on Sunday November 1st. We will reopen on Friday March 4th, 2016.
If you are looking for the perfect hideaway which offers peace, tranquillity, plus a wonderful restaurant on the lake, Carrig, on the Ring of Kerry and Wild Atlantic Way is the place for you. The beautifully appointed bedrooms, drawing rooms and The Lakeside Restaurant, overlooking Caragh Lake and the majestic Kerry mountains are considered the perfect treat.
At the heart of the Carrig Country House Hotel experience is genuine old fashioned Irish
hospitality provided by Frank, Mary and their professional team.
Carrig boasts one of the finest restaurants in Kerry using the best local farm and garden produce plus an abundance of fresh fish from the nearby Atlantic.
This Victorian Country Manor sits on acres of lush gardens (950 species) with enchanting walks and paths right down to the lake. Here you will find the cleanest air in Europe where lichen grows freely.
Carrig is hidden away on Caragh Lake and lies at the foot of the northern lower slopes of the MacGillycuddy’s Reeks at the head of the Caragh Valley. It is a magnificent tranquil location midway between the bustling town of Killorglin to the east and the charming village of Glenbeigh to the west.
Walking, angling, cycling, mountaineering, orienteering and kayaking are just some of the myriad of activities and things to do on our doorstep at this luxury country house. Golfing in Kerry is a religion! With 15 wonderful golf courses within a 1 hour drive of us.
It is centrally located for touring the Ring of Kerry, the Wild Atlantic Way, the Dingle Peninsula, Killarney National Park or visiting World Heritage site, Skellig Michael. The ideal location for your stay in Kerry.
However, you may prefer to just unwind with a good book, sip an Irish whiskey and soak up the atmosphere at this charming country inn.
“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”.
Frank Bruni, The New York Times 2012
We very much look forward to welcoming and looking after you here at Carrig.
With best wishes,
Frank, Mary & the Team
