Carrig Beag -Victorian Terrace Loving restored

Overview

Loving restored in 08, we have retained the Character of the building while giving our discerning Guest all the comforts of a modern home. The property is in a quiet Cul de Sac just off the Square in Kenmare. So it is an ideal location for anyone who wants enjoy the Guinness by night as much as the breathtaking scenery in the region by day.

This is our original home, but due to an increasing family we had to move to a larger house, but we still love the property dearly, as we will eventually move back as it location and quietness of the street, while still being in town is amazing.

Everything here is on your door step, the pubs and resturaunts in Kenmare, all the scenery of the south West of Ireland, the infamouns Rings of Kerry and Beara

Kenmare is amongst the most popular holiday destinations in Ireland. The picturesque town links the internationally famous Ring of Kerry, one of the most dramatic scenic drives in the country, with the rugged Ring of Beara, abounding with archaeological sites and spectacular views. This makes Kenmare an ideal centre for exploring the beauties of the southwest of Ireland. Not just a holiday location, Kenmare has become the new home of many nationals and non-nationals of all age groups who choose to relocate to the town, adding to the international flair which has fused effortlessly with its charmingly Irish character.

Summary:

Situated in a quiet Cul de Sac adjacent to Kenmare town. Lovingly restored while retaining it Character. Ideal location in a quiet area yet close enou

We felt very much at home in Carrig Beag and Kenmare. The house provided everything we needed to feel comfortable and Mr. Foley was very friendly and helpful at all times.

The owner was very kind. There had been construction workings at our booked house and he offered us an other one in a calm region with a very good standard. Anyway the owner was very friendly and easy to reach. Absolutely recommendable.

Very well equipped little house. Everything was there what we needed for our stay. Very quiet although very close to the city center. Garden should be taken more care for, the pots were all dried out and rotten.

The cottage is larger than the photos would lead you to think, which is a plus. Comfy beds, good showers and freeview TV is a bonus. Everything is provided in terms of towels and kitchenware and it was very clean throughout. However, the gas bill after just 4 days was really expensive (only having the heating on early morning and evening) which cleaned us out of euros before we left. The local town is lovely, but completely dead in winter (Feb) and I wouldnt recommend going there unless all you want is total quiet and are happy to cook for yourself as most of the local restaurants were closed the whole time. I imagine its very bustling in the summer (but with tourists rather than locals) and has a wide choice of pubs/places to eat (lots of award winning eateries, just not in winter! Great location for exploring, The Beara Peninsula is on your doorstep and is absolutely beautiful (a must drive, go anti-clockwise) then just up the road is The Ring of Kerry and the Kilarney National Park, both stunning.

Carrig Beag is a beautiful, warm house. Its obvious that great care and attention was taken in the decor. Its centrally located to shops, restaurants and friendly pubs. Id highly recommend this house to anyone who is interested in staying in Kenmare.
