Heading back home from a trip to the South West tip of Ireland we stayed for a night in this lovely guest house. The owners could not have been nicer. We arrived looking for a bed for the night and by luck a room was available due to a cancellation. We were welcomed by Irene who could not do enough... More

A little message to anyone else reading this response, All our guest rooms are en-suite & the other room is only offered when all guest rooms are fully booked.... More

We stayed in Sept 2013 for two nights and had a great weekend in Carlingford so came back again August 2014 for a night. Hosts Peter and Irene were great. Could not do enough for us. Peter gave us a lift so we could climb a local mountain and ensured we were set off with a flask of tea and... More

Went for weekend break to this lovely b &b lovely welcome fabulous breakfast both mornings very comfortable bed... My only observations would be that the general cleanliness could be improved however maybe as I run my own cleaning business I'm too fussy. Otherwise would highly recommend to all.

Carlingford House is perfectly situated in the centre of town close to all Pubs and restaurants. It is a beautiful period house with lots of character & charm. The rooms are a good size and are comfortable and clean with modern bathrooms. The best thing about Carlingford House is the hosts, we received a proper Irish welcome and nothing was... More

You to were a lovely lady, a pleasure to have staying with us. Yes some rooms are smaller than others but its the price you pay to add an en-suite to a house that is not purpose built. Even so all the rooms are double. More

My husband & I stayed here for two nights in February - first trip away from our toddler by ourselves. We were a little apprehensive about staying in a B&B, as we've been hotelling it a bit for the last number of years. Even though our hosts Peter and Irene were very friendly, we had total privacy and felt like... More
