My friend and I stayed in Carlingford for a couple of days recently and on the first evening we were rather late getting out for dinner, Magees was the only place still serving after 9pm so we decided to give it a try and we were so glad we did. The food was excellent as was the service, so good... More

Visited 14/07/14 with a pal who was over from the UK. We both had the Sea Bass for main course... Light, fleshy, and melt in your mouth... Amazing!

Magees is always busy but the food is always fantastic! I've never been disappointed... There's a good varied menu and sometimes it's hard to choose! Although the surf and turf is usually the way to go, as you get a good mix!

Had a meal with family and all really enjoyed our food and the cosy atmoshere. Staff very accomodating and changing table was no problem. Denis, who I presume is the spanish owner was in good form and very witty. Food is excellent and well done chef. The 50 euro special for two steaks and bottle of wine is good value.... More

Our trips to Carlingford are never complete without a trip to Magee's and as always we have an unforgettable meal... the food is fantastic and the atmosphere is perfect.

I travel to Carlingford every year and my visit always includes Magee's Bistro. The minute you walk down the cobble stone lane you just know it will be an experience you will enjoy. The decor and intimate atmosphere are the first things you will notice as you enter the Restaurant. A couple of years ago they opened a Cocktail Lounge... More

In May I had the opportunity to eat at Magee's Bistro. I had heard wonderful things about this Bistro, and it did not disappoint! We started our evening with cocktails, made by James. As we were not familiar with the drinks, James took the time to find out what kind of drinks we usually prefer, and was then able to... More
