With a big open fireplace, tasteful furniture and original paintings, it’s the perfect place to relax and savour breath-taking views morning, noon and night.

The large kitchen is fully equipped, perfect for preparing those delicious meals - the trout you caught earlier that day or fresh local vegetables you bought in the nearby town. There’s also a long oak bench to lounge on, sip your tea and look out onto the lake.

The dining room features large floor-to-ceiling windows and antique furniture - the ideal setting for those long and lazy lunches and magical evening meals with friends.

There is also an additional open-plan kitchen, living and dining room, if your friends would like that little bit of extra space.

"Relaxing Lakehouse With Stunning Views" We were a family of 6 adults who were fortunate enough to rent this wonderful lakehouse which surpassed our expectations. Location was perfect for visiting the numerous towns and sights along the Ring of Kerry. Every room was well planned in respect to lighting, bedding, size and comfort. Multiple oversized windows and sliding glass doors captured spectacular views of Caragh Lake which we savored at the end of each day. Jens and Michelle were excellent hosts with all house provisions readily accessible including, wine and apple pie for our arrival. House was outfitted with a high level of attention to detail and taste. Outdoor furniture was just as important to us as were the multiple interior gathering spaces. For our group, single floor layout was also appreciated. We enjoyed the landscaping with a variety of flowers in bloom. We were able to contact the owners with questions although a detailed guide was provided which outlined the ins and outs of enjoying our time in Ireland. We do have to mention that Jens and Michelle advised us in regard to a driver/tour guide and their recommendation to book Ann Marie of Morrison Tours was perfect. We could not ask for a more competent, flexible, hospitable guide than Ann Marie...a true Irish gem!

We had a fabulous time at the Caragh Lake House! We could not have enjoyed our stay at the beautiful Caragh Lake House any more! The level of hospitality shown to us by Jens and Michelle was beyond any expectations and we honestly consider them to be lovely friends whom we look forward to seeing again. The house was amazingly well appointed, very spacious, and very comfortable. The views were amazingly beautiful and even the Irish weather cooperated beautifully for us. Our entire family , as well as a number of invited guests who joined us, shared our most favorable impression of our Irish holiday. This was certainly not our first visit Ireland but the first of the sort where we rented a home and did different excursions during the day, but found it a perfect launching pad for our various activities. Another highlight that we found was the two spectacular country homes with restaurants within a very short distance of the laje house, which we enjoyed on a regular basis! This is a perfect location and home for either a family gathering for perhaps several couples.

"Ideal family vacation" Wow! Our stay surpassed our expectations. I wanted a house in Ireland to celebrate my father-in-law's 75th birthday. We had 3 families and this house fit us all comfortably. The decor and style were designed with care and taste. The views of the lake and summer sun were majestic. We even got out onto the lake in the kayaks (be careful when windy). The location is ideal—close to several outstanding golf courses; quiet, serene setting overlooking the lake; less than 10 minutes to town; and it’s well situated for day trips to so many places. The town of Killorglin maintains the charm and sense of community of an Irish town but also has a very nice choice of restaurants. Our favorite was Giovannelli (Michelin recipient). Our family travels quite often (my wife is a travel writer) and we see and experience many places. Jens’ Caragh Lake House is one of our absolute favorites. It helped make a family celebration special—one that will not be soon forgotten.

"Should have stayed longer!!!" This was our 2nd stop on a family holiday in Ireland. 5 adult siblings and our spouses traveled Ireland over a 10-day period. Unfortunately, we only allotted 3 nights at Caragh Lake House. When we arrived, we were warmly greeted by Michelle. We were quite impressed with the home and the property!! We should have booked the house for the entire week!! It is the perfect spot for exploring the entire SW of Ireland!

The best holiday we've ever had! 5 of 5 My whole family stayed at Caragh lake house for a week, when we arrived my mouth fell open with shock at how much more beautiful the view and house was compaired to the pictures. What a nice surprise to have a property not only live up to expectations but to outdo them! Simply don't have the words to describe how peaceful and breathtaking the view is and the house is so spacious and well designed, fitted. My whole family are in love and we will definitely be back! Jens and Michelle were so accomodating and there was a fresh apple pie on the table when we checked in. Cannot say enough for this property and it's owners!
