“Having read the reviews on 1 Ard Carraig I thought , nothing can be that good....How wrong I was!It is beautifully appointed the rooms airy and spotless.We tried to find something that was not in the Kitchen but failed miserably Every kitchen aid yon could wish for in in there.The beds are comfy and the rooms spacious.Wendy and Andrew have thought about their customers even leaving bath robes and beach shoes to enable you to get in and out of the superb hot tub in comfort, every sort of towel is available to you and spares are in the cupboard if needed.The welcome booklet is very informative and easy to follow for each of the appliances have been written so you can operate them quickly.I spent many an evening and early morning sat in the, what I called my reading nook, reading and watching the sun riseset over Ballymastoker beach.The only let down with the holiday, which by no means affected 1 Ard Carraig was that the local Pub and Restaurant were closed for the season dispite us having checked beforehand that they would be open.This was a holiday chosen for us to relax from our hectic daily life style, 1 Ard Carraig fulfilled that criteria with ease and we will return”

“Had a fabulous stay, with my family and 2 dogs, for a week in May, the bungalow is set in a stunning location, and the owners have thought of absolutely everything possible to make your stay 5 star. The surrounding countryside is spectacular to say the least, we ate locally at the Golf club and Sarah's restaurant and weren't disappointed, we hope to make a booking here next year, and I was really sorry when our week there finished as I will miss my daily hottub dip.”

“This is the second time we have visited this property and we have already planned our third visit. We had pets with us who just love the beach, being only a 5min walk before you are on the beach is just brilliant. The house has everything you need for an enjoyable, relaxed holiday with a warm cosy feeling. Highlights have to be the use of BBQ and hot tub while the dogs could play in the large enclosed garden. Shops close by with local fresh produce and a hidden lil gem of a seafood cafe just a short 10min drive to Kerrykeel. Amazing! Local pub and restaurant within walking distance, worthwhile to take a drive along the Wild Atlantic way and see the scenery. Give me a week at No.1 over a week in Spain anytime...thanks again for letting us stay and we look forward to our return next year. ”
