We just spent a great week in The Forge at the Courtyard. Lovely comfortable, spacious, spotless house with plenty accommodation for extended family of adults, teenagers & babies. The enclosed back garden was a perfect sun-trap for evening BBQ's & ideal for small children to play safely in. The owners Claire & Bernard couldn't have been more friendly & helpful.... More

Accommodation is excellent, clean, well equipped and very secure for children. Location is excellent too with lovely local walks, stoney beach within 5 min walk, sandy beach with lifeguard only 5 min drive. 'Older generation' found the... More

Took a weekend down here with the lads at the start of April and had an awesome time!! 1hr 15 mins from Belfast. Place was easy to find, loads of car parking space, well laid out accomodation with everything you need. Stayed in 'The Stables' accomodation. Carlingford is just up the road - 5 mins in a taxi - and... More

The courtyard is a set of tastefully refurbished stables, located close to scenic Carlingford. Friendly and helpful hosts, clean and spacious accommodation at a very reasonable rate. Went there for a weekend with friends but would go back again with family. Highly recommended, 5/5.

The family stayed at The Courtyard over the Easter weekend to finish up our vacation from the U.S. in Ireland and the children began to ask why we hadn't come directly there and spent our entire two weeks! It's that wonderful a place. Great hosts, convenient location, spotless and beautifully appointed accommodations; I can't think of a thing that would... More

We give the Courtyard full marks. We stayed in Tearaways, it was clean and every needed amenity was provided. Bathrooms had power showers and good linens. The open plan kitchen/living room was large and modern with vaulted ceiling, comfy sofas and a gas stove. Bedroom furniture was from Ikea, but the beds were comfortable and the linens clean and crisply... More

Just back from a family reunion at the Courtyard. We stayed in 3 of the cottages and were all delighted with the accommodations. Each house was spotlessly clean and kitted out to a high standard. It was great for us all to be together and go visiting from house to house. We hired Clare to cook us a meal one... More
