“Quality B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

My wife (Evonne) and I only discovered Carlingford just over a year ago. We were fortunate to choose Beaufort House as a place to stay and have been back to Beaufort 3 times since, the most recent occasion being last Saturday, 25th February.

We wouldn’t dream of staying anywhere else in Carlingford. Owners, Michael and Glynnis Caine exude a genuine warmth and friendliness, couldn’t be more helpful and their place is lovely.

It is a quality, spacious B&B, tucked away in a quiet setting by the Lough, yet only a few minutes walk from the medieval village of Carlingford, with its stunning location and great restaurants and pubs.

The bedrooms are very comfortable and guests are welcome to relax and read in the ‘Chart Room’ downstairs (Michael and Glynnis are sailing enthusiasts).

They used to run a high end restaurant where Michael honed his culinary skills. Guests at Beaufort House reap the benefits at breakfast time in a stylish dining room. Michael’s full Irish fry (if that is your choice; there are other options available) is always beautifully cooked and presented and so tasty, and the coffee, toast, fresh bread and home made jams are delicious. We have eaten fine breakfasts in many parts of the world, and Michael’s are right up there with the best.

We have recommended Beaufort to a number of friends, and those who have stayed there have been very pleased.

Well worth a visit.

I stayed here last November on a work trip. Was very impressed with it. Michael and Gynnis were lovely and always there to help! Room was lovely and spacious with a great view of the bay. I would most definitely go back to stay here again.

We stayed here just one night on new years eve. The room was big, clean and very cosy. The beds had an electric blanket which I thought was a lovely touch but even though it was freezing outside we had no need to use it. The room was toasty warm when we came in.
The owners welcomed us and were such friendly people. It really did feel like we were staying in our own house. Breakfast was amazing the next morning. Stunning views from the house. Definitely the place to stay in Carlingford

Stayed just before Christmas on a business trip - very impressed with rooms, views and fantastic breakfast. Michael and Glynnis were lovely and couldn't have been more helpful. A real gem and well worth a visit

We stayed here for a night over new years..we were warmly welcomed at the door and shown to a lovely big room with great views.
The breakfast was really good, better than most hotels and the service was excellent.
Would definitely stay here again!

We spent our fisrt night here during a roundtrip of Northern Eire and Northern Ireland. We had reserved in advance, and got a big room at the front with stunning views over the lough. We slept well, and the breakfast was one of the best we've had at such an establishment. And the host were also very helpful, highly recommended !

We stayed two nights mid-winter and couldn't have been happier. The rooms are beautifully finished and warm, the location gorgeous with views of Carlingford Lough, the service always attentive but never overbearing. The breakfasts are vastly superior to hotel grub! This medieval village is well worth the trip, and if you do come then Beaufort House knocks spots off all other accommodation. The proprietors clearly deserve all these raves, and then some. Classy and relaxed - a perfect combination!
