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

This is a really welcoming and lovely B&B - great breakfast, lovely room and perfect location to access everything in the town easily. The staff were very helpful. My only issue is that the room was really cold - the heat was on but it just didn't seem to help much. That's the only negative thing though! Really nice and... More

Just returned from a two night break here. The room was beautiful and the breakfast was delicious. I'm really picky when I go away and I cannot fault this place! The owners are really relaxed and cannot do enough for you. The house is very central so it's only a 2 min walk to all gift shops, restaurants and pubs.... More

Both myself and my wife spent three days & nights staying in this guest house whilst exploring both Carlingford and its surrounding areas over the recent Bank Holiday weekend. We would both have no hesitation in recommending Carlingford House as a base from which to enjoy your visit. Comfortable, warm and cozy, beautiful both inside & from out. The breakfasts... More

My wife and I recently stayed at Carlingford House. Peter and Irene are born hoteliers and they go out of their way to make you feel like family. The house is centrally located to everything in Carlingford and Irene's breakfast was wonderful. Our room was quite large, clean, and well appointed. We would certainly stay here again should our travels... More

My husband and I went for a weekend to Carlingford House recently with our baby son Oisin. I cannot recommend this beautiful house and experience highly enough. Situated right in the centre of the town, and lovely owners Peter and Irene (I hope I have their names right!) could not have done more to make our stay more enjoyable. The... More

I knew by previous reviews on trip advisor that Carlingford House was going to be a pleasant experience, but the reality exceeded all my expectations. We stayed five nights, and by the time we left we were totally relaxed, a good half a stone heavier each and made feel like family by our lovely hosts Peter and Irene Finnegan. The... More

This is exactly what a B&B should be! You really feel like you are staying in Peter & Irene's home but they are not in your face and always there if you need something. Peter is a hilarious man, him and Irene make a fantastic team. The B&B was really clean and beautifully finished. very secure with your own key... More
