Peaceful Hide away

Posted Jul 14, 2014 on Hotels.com
From the moment we entered the front door we were made extremely welcome. The house is simply beautiful, with attention to every little detail, main floor has many little nooks where you can hide away if necessary! Gardens are exquisite & lead down to the lake. Our room was spacious & had a patio leading into the garden with view of the lake. Dinner was outstanding, have never tasted rack of lamb like it. Breakfast was every big as good with wonderful choices. Will defiantly return there.

2 night break

Posted Apr 24, 2014 on Hotels.com
The hotel location is exceptional. It is set on the shore of a totally unspoilt lake and mountain background. Once in the beautifully tended gardens you can't see any other properties from the hotel. The rooms are comfortable with interesting old furniture and items befitting a country house. The patron Frank and his staff are very attentive but not pushy. The breakfasts are outstanding. We stayed 2 nights and ate in the restaurant the second evening. It was a table d'hote menu and the food really could not be faulted. It was excellent value and the best meal we had in Ireland. Our view is that you'd have to go a long way to find a better place for a break. it is well placed for touring the Ring of Kerry, the Dingle peninsula and even County Cork. There is also a links golf course a few miles away.

Best place for couples

Apart from everything being amazing: Frank and Mary, the owners, and Shvonne they were so nice to us that we felt home. I mean, if you visit Ireland, you have to see that place, meet that people!

Beautiful relaxing. b & b with exceptional service

Cons: Those wool blankets itch right through the top sheet and real king bed, not 2 doubles pushed together, but both of these things may simply be Irish
Location: Ring Of kerry; be adventurous & drive down the middle to Glencar then through the pass back to N70 to Sheem & back roads to hotel.
Stayed at Carrif in July 2013. Grounds are beautiful, room was very pretty, quiet and the staff is exceptional. Dinner was outstanding. Over all very nice!
