This country house hotel seems like a cross between a B&B and staying in a private house with a marvellous hostess. Pretty Georgian house set in its own private grounds with a charming garden and vegetable plot. Apart from having high standards of comfort, the breakfasts were exceptionally delicious. Guests are made to feel very welcome and the whole was... More

From the first 'welcome!' sign on the front of this most gracious 18th century house, the Crocnaraw experience washes away all stress and anxiety of modern life. In the most unobtrusive way, last seen in Agatha Christie's At Bertrams Hotel, the owner and host Lucy caters to the guests' every wish and fancy, seemingly without effort. From tea and scones...

In spite of the rain - incessant even for the West of Ireland - we loved Crocnaraw. As other reviewers have said, there is definitely an otherworldliness to the place and Lucy is the perfect owner/manager. Delicious home-made breakfasts and afternoon teas in front of the turf fire (in August and much needed). Lucy, like so many B&B owners, gives... More

This was just what we wanted an authentic Irish country house with peat fire and home made scones on arrival, delightful rooms with character, welcoming staff. Breakfasts are excellent all home made produce, and we found delicious evening meals in Letterfrack. No telly, no power showers, the overgrown garden was very appealing. Trip advisor member Sussex

If you are looking for a traditional Irish country house this is the one for you. Relaxing evenings by the peat fire, splendid breakfasts and delightful hostess. We felt very much at home and were made very welcome. Many thanks.

We were looking for total peace and quiet, complete relaxation. We found it, and more, at Crocnaraw. No, it didn't have instant, powerful hot water gushing out of all the taps; it didn't have television and tea-making facilities ( although it was there should we have wanted); it didn't have Microsoft singing and dancing all over the place. We didn't... More

I'd booked accommodation by email, but when we arrived (finding the house by luck as there was no sign at the entrance to the drive) we had to ring the bell, shout and generally walk about for five minutes or more before someone eventuallycame out from the kitchen (we could see movement in the house when we were walking round...

This place had an other worldliness before I learnt Crocnaraw meant 'hill of the fairy fort'. Perhaps it was the bizarre lampshades, a throwback to when Lucy's mother started B&B in the 1960s. Perhaps it was the bamboo wardrobe and sky-blue bathroom. Maybe it was the beautiful garden that hides this Georgian fishing lodge from view. Or maybe it was... More
