After reading some reviews about the seafood chowder here we decided to drive the 60 miles to try it and are we glad we did.
Combined with two lovely slices of their wheaten bread this is one of if not the best chowders we have ever tasted.
The texture, taste and content were superb and seasoned perfectly.
Lots of lovely fish going on in there too.
All in all a journey worth making.

Had a lunch of a selection of starters for family - huge portions and good variety. Would recommend if in town.

Everytime I go to Carlingford I always end up in PJs! Great atmosphere and something on the menu for everyone! Although it's hard to beat the chowder and a pint of the black stuff! :)

We have been to PJ's for many years. We stopped for lunch today and had oysters, sea food chowder and crab claws. Good tried and tested pub grub. We have always tended to stick to these dishes and have never been disappointed. Service was friendly and responsive. Seems as though the previous reviewer was just unlucky. Well worth a visit for lunch.

We arrived in Carlingford on Friday 4th July 2014, small group of us, 7 people for my Mums Birthday. We picked PJ O Hares, because of the great comments on Tripadvisor. I was 8.50pm and I asked when was food finished, 9pm I was told in a very unfriendly manner. We all sat down and menus were given. The waiter stood over the table and proceeded to take the order, even though we hadnt even been given the chance to look at it. We felt rushed and uncomfortable. When the food arrived, it was not great. The fish was ok but the soup looked like cabbage water and the chips were discusting. Not even the guys whom were starving ate the chips. We are very disappointed with food. We are very easily pleased, but the food was not good. We ate in the Bay Tree Restaurant the following night, which as absolutely Fantastic. Beautiful Tasty Food and great service. Very disappointed with PJ O Hares...
