“Fundraising Mountain Walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

A group of walkers visited Carlingford recently on a sponsored mountain walk in aid of Turas Counsellling Services Ltd. Dundalk. This was the second walk in aid of this organisation in this area. On both occasions, after the walk, there was a BBQ for all participants in Taaffes Castle Bar courtesy Alan and Maureen. A lot of the walkers had not visited Taaffes before this and were delighted with this experience. It really is a must see if you are to visit Carlingford in the future. The staff were warm and welcoming and the food provided was delicious. The time spent in Taaffes after the walk was indeed the highlight of our event. Word has quickly spread and we have been asked to organise another walk, which is on Sunday 18th August. Again Taaffes are kindly giving all a courtesy BBQ after the walk. This is greatly appreciated by the organisation and all involved in this event

“Great Spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

Was in Taaffes for Paddy's Day. Great spot to spend the day. Entertainment was great and a good mix of a crowd. Definitely a pub to visit when in Carlingford. Although the pub was packed service at the bar was quick.
