My husband and I stayed here for the first time last week & wished we were still there. Like many of the other reviews the first sight of this beautiful place is when you get to the driveway. It is a "wow" factor! Marion was there to greet us and walk us around. The Lake is gorgeous. There were swans with their babies swimming along the shore line with the cattle, sheep and the geese on the property across from the castle. The sights & sounds were wonderful. We used the main bedroom & bathroom attached & the downstairs bathroom, plenty of hot water. Large, wonderful fireplace in the living room. Even though we had Perfect weather, mid 60's with lots of sunshine we did use the fireplace each evening after our touring around. My husband used the boat a lot & enjoyed both the fishing & the beauty of being out on the Lake. I would recommend it. The castle is private, beautiful and quiet. Washer & dryer was nice to have, the kitchen was small but fine, wi-fi is available. Like I said, we wish we were still there enjoying the views, the fire and the sheer beauty of Carraigin Castle.
