'Carraig Beag' was built to the highest standard in this truly unique and wonderful setting in 2007. We are are delighted to be able to share this cottage which is located in such a beautiful and romantic place and we really hope you enjoy its magic that invites you to get away from it all for some well deserved rest and relaxation.

Daniel Crosby purchased this cottage in 2007

We fell in love with the site on which we built Carraig Beag during a visit to Ireland before we married in 2002. The cottage is located in a beautiful, magical part of Ireland which our guests will find very difficult to leave.

Apart from the high specification of the spotless interior and stunning views, Carraig Beag provides a get away from it all experience yet its perfect location is not too far from the hustle and bustle of neighbouring towns and cities.

WHAT A GEM!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I recently spent one of the most enjoyable and memorable weeks of our lives in this jewel of a hideaway amidst the most magnificent scenary. This property has bags of old world, rustic charm but presented in a modern and luxurious way. The owners couldn't do more to make us feel welcome and I'm sure if there had been anything we needed, they would have provided it. Their attention to detail in the furnishings and equipment was amazing and the level of cleanliness and comfort of the property was truly exceptional. The area is one of outstanding natural beauty and remains unspoilt - I do hope it stays that way for many years to come. The views outwards across the penninsula and backwards towards the majestic mountains is breathtaking. This is an ideal place to detox the mind, body and soul.

WONDERFULL ACCOMMODATION,

  • 5 of 5
We made holiday for one week in May and it was a wonderfull time. We were hiking in the mountains and the beach. Great. :-) Also we visited a lot the "Ashes Pub". The smal cottage with a nice and perfect kittchen, the living/sleep room excellent. The cottage is very good furnished and all is clean and in a perfect state.
Outside of the cottage there is a marvellous view to the see. Fantastic. A very good place to relax and enjoy the quit environment. The owners are very helpful and friendly. As we arrived, we didnt find the right street to the accommondation and the owners picked up at the street. :-) (we are lost....a short story by the way)

We always love to to come back again!

The only thing which I (we) missed was a good connection to the internet!

A LOVELY COTTAGE IN A BEAUTIFUL LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed this cottage stay. Although small, It is designed in a way that makes it seem larger. It has updated and has everything you need - very clean, and is nice and bright. The view of the ocean from here is beautiful and a five minute drive takes you to a lovely isolated beach. It is perfectly located for exploring the Dingle Peninsula and we were even able to tour the Ring of Kerry from here. Dan and Ann were great, very friendly and available any time we needed them. The only down side was no television or internet. That's the tradeoff for the seclusion. Lots of DVDs though. Definitely recommend this lovely cottage in a really picturesque location.

LUXE COTTAGE OP SCHITTERENDE LOCATIE.

  • 5 of 5
We hebben genoten van dit vakantiehuis op een prachtlocatie. Hartelijke verhuurders en een schitterende omgeving waar heel veel te doen is voor zowel wandelaars als niet-wandelaars.
De cottage is erg luxueus ingericht en zag er erg netjes uit.
Een absolute aanrader!!

WUNDERBAR!

  • 5 of 5
I can't recommend Carraig Beag highly enough. Not only is the property absolutely beautiful (both in terms of the cottage's interior and its vantage point), you could not rent from a warmer, kinder couple. Danny and Ann are amazing human beings who went above and beyond for me during my stay, for which I'll always be grateful. The cottage is extremely versatile, usage-wise. I'm a 21 year old student from the US and was doing a study abroad program in the UK--I was in Ireland for an academic break. What I found so remarkable about the cottage is that it manages to be conducive to both study (I had one more intensive assignment to complete) and relaxation. While there I had numerous light-filled places to work, but I also made great use of the Crosby's DVD and CD collection! The area is also very serene, so needless to say, I slept soundly. Potential renters might also be interested in the fact that Carraig Beag is quite close to a bus stop from which Dingle (town) and Killarney are accessible. Again, I just can't recommend the rental property more highly--it's perfect!

A BLISSFUL TWO WEEKS!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had been planning our trip to Ireland for about two years, so the anticipation had built up quite considerably by the time we arrived at Carraig Beag! We were very warmly greeted by Ann and Daniel, and were thrilled to realize that the cottage was even more than we had hoped. Cozily tucked into a hill, it was quiet, private, impeccably clean and gorgeous to boot! Our first night included a quick trip into Castlegregory, only about 10 minutes away, for a fabulous meal at Milesean, a restaurant we tended to frequent throughout our trip! The cottage was very well situated (and instructions on getting there from Dublin were spot on, even for us Canadians!) on the Dingle Penninsula. We took day trips every day, and spent many of them on the unforgettable walk, "The Dingle Way", we visited the many ancient ruins and historical sites, not to mention our favourite day on Blasket Island. So much to see and do, that we have vowed to return as soon as we can. This is a piece of heaven!
Cairraig Beag is a perfect spot to relax, with stunning views, local walks, a well equipped and very modern kitchen, topped off with very welcoming, helpful and accommodating hosts. I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to get away from it all.
