Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Had a meal here on a Sunday evening in the Mill restaurant. Food was top class. Wings and arancini balls for starters were lovely. Steak was nice as well. Staff very friendly. Will definitely be back

    We travelled to Carlingford for my sister’s hen party and thanks to Visit Carlingford’s great organisation, everything went smoothly and we had a fabulous time. Richard and team were great from start to finish, from providing a variety of package options to suit our party, to always providing answers to my ongoing questions, and dealing with us in such an accommodating and professional manner. The house we stayed in in Omeath was beautiful, with fantastic hosts, views and plenty of lovely rooms for our party to enjoy. We were even able to organise decorating the house before the rest of the party arrived, and stocking the fridge, which was a big help. The buses Richard had organised ran like clockwork and provided a relief for us not having to source our own taxis. We chose paintball for our activity and Richard chose the perfect site for this, with great facilities and lovely staff. Not only was the service great with Visit Carlingford, it was also cost-effective and saved myself and the bridal party any stress in having to work with multiple vendors. I would highly recommend entrusting Visit Carlingford with assisting any and all trips. Thanks so much!

    The apartments were so spacious for 3 of us.
    Views were fabulous & everything we needed there for our stay (we tend to bring more than enough supplies with us wherever we go)
    Nathan in the Rocksalt bar & restaurant literally could not have done more to make us feel welcome.
    Compliments to the chef, another lovely guy, who made fabulous food.
    All the staff were so friendly.

    We will definitely be back, thanks to all

    I found the castle when looking for Carlingford Marina. Like many local attractions, it could be better signposted.
    Tours can be arranged from the Carlingford Visitor's Centre - but these don't start until 11 am - and are infrequent.

    It is situated on a lough-side hill about ten minutes walk from the Visitor's Centre.
    Access to the inside is locked - unless you join an organised tour; however, you can enter the grounds and photograph the castle from the outside.

    Its lough-side position is ideal for photography - of the castle, the lough and the surrounding hills. Canoeing and yachting activity can be observed from the castle.

    We joined the visit to the leprechauns and fairy cavern, guided by the Leprechaun Whisperer, Kevin Woods. It was a hoot! So entertaining both for kids and adults (Kevin deftly proves that there is a kid in all of us!) We enjoyed the stories and the experience and recommend it to others.

    We walked around the church ruins which had a welcoming feeling as you got closer which only went when we left.
    The ruins have been well maintained.

    This is a special place for me and no I'm no bible thumper (forgive my bad grammar) but like many of you I am part of a community yet seldom seen so in my case I'm part of Carlingford more
    than most its been part of me since I was born in 1962 and my family for generations so I have some authority on Carlingford. North Commons is my heritage home still is my aunt's uncles granddad grandmother and generations before that are all part of St Michael's Church. I believe in my God but a poor Mass goer (bad grammar again) but I am spiritually aware. St Michael's church is a magical place of spirituality. I often sit alone and reflect on my past present and future. I can often hear and see the people long gone to their reward yet they still live amongst us.My present family and friends who I enjoy immensely I see and hear too in my minds eye and the future what will come behind us I see this too with the new born arriving at a alarming rate. St Michael's is here for you too its not a secret society its door are open to everyone. Take in the smells the creaking doors and my beloved steps to the gallery. The statues are as old as Christ himself I reckon but don't take my word for it. Try and take in a mass and listen to the beautiful soft Carlingford accent in unison it takes your breath away. When its all over head to the harbour and take a long look at the Lough and then try to deny God and if you still do, so what he'll still love you and Caringford will steal you heart forever. Today I'm here thinking of my late dad whom I miss immensely but yet I can see him in the church head lowered deep in prayer in the fullness of his health for that alone I am forever grateful.
