Great Pub

Great pub - particularly early evening. Gets absolutely packed late at night. Friendly bar staff. We didn't eat here but looking at the food being brought out it looked very good. We will be back.

Nice place to eat and again it seems to be a theme of the Carlingford as the staff are very friendly. It does get very busy but that does not affect the service or quality of food.

Really good food, wonderful ambiance and great craic. Highly recommend especially the crab claws in garlic butter with wheaten bread and the chowder. Delicious. Our family in S.Africa now want to live in Carligford.

Arrived at this bar with some family and friends. Ay first found staff unwelcoming but we settled at bar anyway. We had a couple of drinks and then a bar man asked my father, 65 year old man, if he could get passed him. My father stood up and the barman took his stool away with no explanation. He then... More

The bar itself is nothing special, you standard rural bar. But the shocking part of the experience for us was the staff, they are beyond rude. The entire time we were there they were borderline aggressive with every request and downright offensive to individuals in our company at times - you'd think that running a business was a inconvenience for...

After a day out touring around the Mourne Coastal Route , we headed for the picturesque village of Carlingford to show our overseas visitors a peace of Irish charm. We have dined once before at PJ's, and were very impressed on that occasion. We were not disappointed this time either! On arriving, the place was packed as usual, but the... More

It may have been quiet when we popped our heads in at 12.30 this Friday, but by the time we were ready to leave having had a splendid lunch it was heaving - with folk of all ages. Our seats at the back by the wood fire were well placed. We started with the Guiness, with plates of oysters, a... More
