“Excellent carvery”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We went to this hotel on Sunday passing through on our way to Dundalk. Got the carvery which was beautiful, tasty and hot. Staff very pleasant, especially the chef who served us our food, don't know his name (dark hair, beard and glasses)

We stayed at this hotel as we were guests at a wedding taking place there. It is a big complex of function rooms, restaurants, spa and hotel. Bedrooms are big and have a fair range of facilities, although I found the pillows hard. Food was all very good from bar snack to wedding meal to breakfasts. Lovely well maintained gardens and a good gym and spa complete the offering at this functional, hard working hotel.

Thank you for your review on the Carrickdale Hotel & Spa. I am pleased to read that you enjoyed our facilities from our Wedding meal right through to our Spa. We pride ourselves with the service we offer to our Wedding couples and their guests - from the variety of function suites to also, (as you mentioned) our landscaped gardens - in which the photographer is spoiled for choice of wedding photos.
We have a dedicated team of staff who work here and it is always good for them to see that guests recognise their efforts.
Thank you once again for you lovely comments and we hope to welcome you back to the Carrickdale Hotel & Spa in the future.

This hotel is excellent if staying after a wedding. Rooms are good as is the service and the breakfast. staff are helpful. rooms are well away from the function areas which is a big bonus.There is ample car parking and it is situated just off the Dublin/Belfast motorway. food is reasonably priced.

Stayed here on a Saturday night and the place had an excellent buzz as there was a wedding taking place. There is a nine hole pitch and putt course in the garden which is free of charge (you get the balls and clubs from the reception desk of the leisure cent). Our room was huge and very comfy. We had dinner in the bar (only available up until 7pm on a Saturday or you have to go to the restaurant) and the food was great, huge portions and very tasty. Breakfast the next morning was also good. Would stay here again.

we rented a "handicapped" access home in Newry. When we arrived we found that it didn't have a wheelchair accessible bathroom on the ground floor.
So we went to the Carrickdale Hotel late on a saturday and it was packed with first communion partys. The woman at the desk took time away from her busy job to help us and rent us an "wheelchair accessible" room ! She even took us up to see the room and make sure it was good for the person in the wheelchair ! The Hotel is very clean, friendly and the food in both the Pub and Restaurant is excellent. We ate there every day of our stay.
A special thanks to the young lady at the desk that saturday night.

I am delighted we were able to accommodate you at such short notice. We have several wheelchair accessible rooms in the hotel, so if ever you are wishing to stay again, we will hopefully be able to accommodate you. I am also glad to hear that our staff made every effort to facilitate your requirements. We will look forward to seeing you again in the future.

The hotel is a very family friendly hotel and I am delighted to see that you were all looked after by the staff on duty. The playground which is now opened for its second year is fantastic for the children staying at the hotel. Don’t forget we also have free crazy golf, basketball & tennis courts available to all our residents for which you can enjoy the next time you stay!!

Stayed here for one night in May for my cousins birthday on girls night out package. Staff went to to so much effort, little extra touches for her birthday made it really special. The spa was amazing, so modern and better than four seasons (5 star) in Dublin. We had our nails done, the girls were lovely, and we used the outdoor hot tub which was such a treat. Food was gorgeous, breakfast lunch and dinner was all fresh, carvery was brilliant and again staff going the extra mile. Room was spacious and spotless. Hotel exterior doesnt do justice to the brilliant spa and restaurant. Would definitely come back again. No complaints at all.
