We enjoyed our stay at the Carraig Rua. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and we were able to fit our family of 7. Breakfast was delicious, and the back patio offered a pretty view while sipping our tea. The hosts were so helpful and kind. Parking was a plus, and the home was within walking distance to all of the sites.

Very good location for a very well kept house, large comfortable rooms, friendly helpful guests and one of the best B&B breakfasts we had in our whole trip. Convenient parking in front also a bonus.
