From 1963 Nicola Howlin helped run the family B&B – part of Breens Pub – in the village. When married, she opened Carrig House with her husband Nicky in 1999. They have been in receipt of much praise not only from guests but also industry experts alike. There are Failte Ireland approved.
The Premises: Our home is a dormer style bungalow based in the heart of the village of Carrig-on-Bannow. We have collected beautiful pieces of art and antiques along their travels around the world. They are displayed to be enjoyed by their guests. Our guests are free to relax and enjoy the views from the house – either in their room or in the communal areas.
A warm fire burns bright in the lounge on those chilly evenings, while guests are free to relax in the conservatory on the warmer ones! If there are any special requirements, we do our best to accommodate. Nothing is too much trouble and the personal touch is given to our guests. Having traveled extensively, we (the proprietors) bring the many experiences we have had staying in guest accommodation to our own business.
The personal touches can be felt everywhere, while a high level of professionalism is kept. We are fortunate to have such prestigious restaurants and cafes on our doorstep. The Red Door is a new restaurant run by a chef originally from the Whitford Hotel that is right on our doorstep. Tir na nOg, in Wellingtonbridge, also have a variety of food options to suit all tastes. Why not take a drive and experience fresh fish, caught on the day, in Kilmore Quay in Mary Barry’s or take the ferry at Passage East to the small Chinese restaurant on the other side? Button & Spoon in Bridgetown offers an alternative menu. There is so much more to try in between!
