We were in Carlingford on Sunday, a friend had recommended the Bay Tree so we tried it and were not disappointed the only negative was that we waited about half an hour after ordering but it was worth the wait, the food was very good and the staff lovely so we will definitely be back

A wonderful dining experience. Out of this world service with an exquisite menu! Oysters were huge and yum, Sole was sensational and mushroom tagliatelle was mouth watering! Highly recommended. Make the time to visit this treasure chest. Rodgers from Australia.

A fresh, cheerful welcome totally lacking in pretentiousness while delivering... More

We had the private room booked for our hen night and we had one of the best meals ever. The staff were lovely, nothing was too much trouble and Conor the owner & chef is a real gent. 100% will be going back to eat here when in Carlingford next. Thank you for a great night.
