The hotel was very busy but there was a lovely atmosphere in the bar and foyer. We dined in the restaurant and had the a la carte menu. The staff were very friendly and our waiter was a lovely fellow very professional but very accommodating. After all the Christmas eating we decided to skip starters and go straight to main... More

We visited some friends while travelling in Ireland. We were staying in the North, and they were in County Louth, so Carrickdale, on the border, was a good choice. The meal was well prepared and the service was excellent. I was not feeling all that well and gave half of my steak to one of the others. He mentioned that... More

Our business has been open for 15 years now and each year we have had a staff Christmas party. This year, we went to the Carrickdale Hotel and it was the best Christmas party yet. The service was top notch, the food was delicious, they did not pack us in like sardines as some other venues had and the bar... More

It was nothing special, lasagne, a chicken caesar salad, chips and a glass of wine and a bottle of cider €36. The room was nice, huge bathroom, bed linen nice and everything clean but the room was cold, even with the... More

The hotel group rate was excellent and we were very well looked after by all staff from housekeeping, reception and restaurant. . I used the spa and swimming pool after the walk and it was a treat to sit in the... More

Stopped off for a quick bite while on a bus tour. Explained we only had 45 mins. Ordered a hot beef sandwich and 30 minutes later, were still waiting... The lady on the till appeared quite hassled and I'm afraid put quite a few of us off our lunch. The rest of the staff were friendly and courteous and most... More

An early trip to newry for a dental appointment meant we were coming back the road with empty tummies so looking for a quick bite to eat. Reception pointed us the way for breakfast, @ €12 in sounds steep but you have a choice of cereals, fruit and yougert with a selection of juices before your hot breakfast. There was... More

I arrived here with my brother and parents. The location of the hotel is perfect because it's one of the last stops before you cross over to the North. Which is where we were heading. Staff at the front desk and the maintenance staff were very warm and friendly. The bathroom was gorgeous. Very modern which I thought strange considering... More

I was working all over Ireland this week and found this little gem of a hotel... Upon arrival I was greeted by two lovely young ladies I didn't catch there names but they were friendly polite and very welcoming... I was given room 518 which again was spacey clean and tidy with a comfy bed.. The hotel boasts spar facilities... More
