We recently had a one night stay at Carraig Liath House on Valentia Island and must say what a wonderful stay it was. The location of the house is just stunning overlooking the little town of Portmagee and the bridge to the mainland.

This was my third time to stay with France's and I had recommend others to stay too and all gave the same great feedback. It's by far the best house on the island with the best view of Portmagee. Wonderful hostess, amazing breakfast... Couldn't ask for more.

The experience couldn't have been nicer. The rooms were comfy, and breakfast was delicious! Frances arranged a visit for us on Skellig Michael. It is just a short walk across the bridge to restaurants. We felt very comfortable and welcomed!
