My partner and I stayed in the Europe Hotel in Killarney earlier this week and we decided to go out for dinner on Wednesday evening to Carrig House, we had the most wonderful dinner . From the moment we arrived we were made feel so welcome warm and friendly atmosphere and even though the weather was not wonderful the views are just amazing. John and Eileen are super hosts and the restaurant had a great atmosphere, the staff were exceptional and couldnt do enough . The tiger prawns for starters were melt in your mouth ,wonderful mains and my chocolate slice was pure pleasure with homemade ice cream. This was the best meal we had in Killarney and certainly worth the short drive out of Kilarney , the only complaint was that we had to drive back to the Europe and were not staying in this beautiful house. We will be back again and next time to stay,

We celebrated our Spring marriage at Carrig House. It was perfect. The food and hospitality were excellent. Our hosts Frank and his daughter Clare and their staff were so well organised and helpful that it made the day stress free and run extremely smoothly. In addition the setting with the lake and mountains make this a world class venue. Highly recommended.

We had dinner for two nights at the Country House and both were excellent. The duck breast with the cherries sauce and the creamy mushroom soup were out of this world. Don't forget to save room for dessert - the creme brulee was my favorite. Don't miss the restaurant to end a perfect journey day around the Ring of Kerry!

We stayed one night with our dinner and breakfast included. We were welcomed once we arrived and told to relax in the drawing room beside the fire and they offered to bring in our bags. The atmosphere there is extremely relaxing. After a while in the drawing room we then went to our room and were blown away by the views of the lake. One of the best hotel rooms we've ever gotten.
We enjoyed the way they organised the dinner service, taking our order by the fire.
The whole meal experience was superb.
This hotel was a real treat and we hope to get back there some time soon.
Highly recommend.

Carrig has always been one of my favourite restaurants, but I was a bit disappointed with our recent experience. It was our anniversary, so we decided to hire a babysitter and travel to Killorglin as a special treat. We did order what took our fancy, eventhough it was quite expensive. A good 3 course early bird meal in our area costs around €32 as reference and we did arrive early. Our entrees here were €14 and €13, while our mains were €32 and €30, with deserts priced at €9.50 each. We did order a side dish of fries, which I wouldn't mind paying a little extra for - but when the bill came, an additional €8 was added on for veg, potatoes and fries. The waitress had arrived to the table with some veg (carrots and cauliflower) and some fries. She asked would we like potatoes as well but we had said no thank you. I told the hostess that we had just had fries and veg, to which she offered a €1 discount! When paying €32 for a main course, I'd expect some veg to be included with that, without having to pay extras. Along with babysitting fees, it made it quite an expensive night out. I think the extra €8 on the bill was too much for sides - and then only offering a €1 discount was a bit short on the mark when we didnt even have potatoes! Apart from that, the setting is beautiful and the food was good.
