Very nice stay. We had the evening meal and treatment package. Room was clean six spacious. Staff were friendly. Food was lovely. We got a back treatment which included exfoliating, moisturising and massage. The spa itself is nice. Steam room, solarium, tropical showers and a relaxation room.

Stayed for one night travelling from Rosslare to N Ireland. Very welcoming. Clean & well equipped rooms, quiet too despite very busy bar, restaurants etc. Good breakfast & as the lights fused in one of our bathrooms and we couldnt see we had one complementary breakfast which was a nice gesture. Thank you.

Stayed in recent weeks for a family celebration. Carrickdale is in a lively location but have to say that we were let down by the room and a lot of parts of the hotel is beginning to show its age. It is definitely a wedding hotel and breakfast the morning after is a real challenge. Staff excellent but not sure... More
