Short stay in lovely Carrig Veag

4 of 5
We spent a number of days in October in Carrig Beag. The house is centrally located within walking distance of all amenities . There is a very spacious kitchen/dining room with all mod cons. The house heats up very quickly which makes it very comfortable and relaxing . The bedrooms are spacious with a large onsuite n the master. Off street parking is a definite advantage. The proprietor Jer is a most kind and accommodating gentleman . He showed us great kindness and generosity during our stay which is greatly appreciated. Should you visit Kenmare, Carraig Beag is an ideal location.

5 star location with brilliant views of Kenmare Bay

4 of 5
Lovely spacious and cosy cottage (very effective underfloor heating) with great views from large French windows. Hurricane-proof too (Ophelia struck during our stay)..! Friendly, helpful owner. Less than 15 mins drive into Kenmare for pubs, restaurants etc and only 25 mins into Killarney National Park. Ring of Kerry road 5 mins. Didn't manage to get the driveway lights working and a few bulbs missing or not working (outside light, cooker hood, extractor fan etc). Had we mentioned these relatively minor issues at the time I'm sure Patrick would have sorted for us but we didn't so that's our fault. If we find ourselves in these parts again we would book again without hesitation. Internet worked well. Ring of Kerry golf club next door too. Detached, private, peaceful. Flat-screen TV would be nice. Very enjoyable all-round.
