Our Reviews

My husband and I LOVED the Carraig Liath House. It was so easy to find the others we stayed in were not and the house was lovely. We had more options for breakfast here than anywhere else. Frances was so helpful in giving us directions and suggestions on where to go. We loved staying on Valentia Island and when we return to Ireland, we will be staying at the Carraig Liath House again!

Francis was extremely friendly and welcoming,made sure we had everything we needed. Rooms clean & comfortable, breakfasts excellent. Ample parking. The house is ideally placed on Valentia island and we were in walking distance of a very good bar & Restaurant at Portmagee on the mainland. We were extremely fortunate with the weather during our stay and the views were superb. S S S S S

I can really recommend this beautiful B&B to everybody. Francis is such a wonderful, nice and helpful host and she makes you feel like being at home. She offers to pick you up from the pub if it is raining, you get a homemade cake in the afternoon before leaving … you are not guest at this place, you are treated like a good friend of the family. The rooms are beautiful, clean and have nice furniture. The view from the B&B is breathtaking. I am sure that this is one of the best B&Bs Ireland has to offer. S S S S S

Great place to stay, especially when you plan a trip to Skellig Islands because it's near the harbour. Nice house with clean rooms, good breakfast Irish and a friendly Frances. S S S S S

Niamh - Ireland (June, 2014)
Could not speak more highly of our host Francis. Nothing was too much trouble even when she was so very busy. We had the best breakfasts at Carraig Liath in our fourteen days of travelling Ireland and the accommodation was excellent. Definitely plan to go back and highly recommend this B&B. S S S S S
