“Sunday lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

Recommended by our cottage owners for Sunday lunch. Absolutely fantastic food, relaxed setting, quiet, views spectacular. Will be going there again twice in May 2012. Weather was wet but it didnt matter at all.

Great views, comfortable room and superb dinner and breakfast. Just so relaxing and wish we were going back sooner than March 2012. Can't wait

We loved everything about Carnaween House! I flew over from California and toured Donegal with my cousin from Belfast. The 2 days spent here in early September were wonderful. The last night we were the only ones in the house,but Arlene and Kara made certain everything we needed was provided. We even had freshly baked scones left in the lounge for a ''snack'' The breakfasts were terrific,and Chef Arlene fixed a meal for our Sunday lunch that I'm sure would win a blue ribbon at any food competition --anywhere!

Room Tip: Great ocean views from the 2 rooms facing the beach.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2011

We stayed at the end of the season and to be honest, we felt rather abandoned. Our keys were left on the front desk and we never saw the host or hostess. Someone came in each morning to fix our breakfast but other than that, we were the only ones in the house.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Carnaween House is the ideal escape from busy lives. We love to welcome couples, families, foodies, sunset worshippers, golfers, walkers, runners, beach enthusiasts, surfers, dogs (extra charge) - whatever the purpose of your visit we strive to make sure it will be a memorable experience! We have 9 bedrooms of varying size, some rooms can be small due to the original layout when purchasing and renovating the house entirely in 2007. Only 3 rooms have tvs as we believe narin&portnoo is most enjoyed outdoors. Our restaurant has become a bit of a destination so it can be very popular and sometimes noisy, especially at high season and weekends. We also have 2 self-catering accommodations a few minutes walk away: Caranaween Cottage, a secluded 3 bed (sleeps 6) traditional irish cottage tucked away with private garden Carnaween Chalet, a cosy 2 bedroom dwelling to sleep 4 (1 double bed/1 bunk bed) and coming soon Carn'a'van, a shabby chic newly renovated caravan for those who don't mind up close and personal - could be used for extra bed space for the chalet as situation behind! we look forward to welcoming love - from all at Carnaween x ... more   less
