Area Description

This magical village is full of character and is one of the best preserved medieval villages in Ireland. Raided in the 8th & 9th centuries by the Vikings and then in 12th century by the Normans, there ruins are still to be seen. The skyline of the village is dominated by King Johns castle, built in 1210. It towers over the harbour and along with the medieval town gate and the mint decorated with Celtic designs there is much to appreciate. The historical setting, the inherent natural beauty of the surrounding landscape and the myriad of activities make Carlingford the gem it is.

Great location. Clean and spacious rooms. Staff at reception could be more friendly. Breakfast mediocre. Little selection of breads. Would have been nice to have pots of tea and coffee at table. It wouldn't take more staff to provide this service. Thanks

Lovely time spent at the hotel. FAB food, staff couldn't have been nicer. Spa was just the ticket. The only downfall was the noise in the corridor's at night time that kept us awake.

Lovely hotel and perfect location! Had a beautiful room and I hadn't noted on our booking that we were celebrating our 2nd Wedding Anniversary - the Reception staff acknowledged this on check in and there was also a congratulations note with some chocolates in the room on arrival which was a lovely touch! Will definitely be back!

by UH on 24th Aug 2017 Second stay at this hotel and have enjoyed my stay on both occasions. Main areas have been nicely renovated over the last few years. Bedroom needs a little updating but it was still fine. Very convenient for the center of Carlingford and for nice walks. Would return again.

Very enjoyable break in this lovely hotel. Best feature was the lovely garden where you could sip cocktails ( very reasonably priced ) on the terrace overlooking the garden while the sun went down. The bar food was of a very high standard ....far better than I would have expected from a hotel bar. Lovely smiling, friendly staff and we had a great room with a walk-in shower so I would certainly class this hotel as better than a three star category.

Loved our stay in the Four Seasons Hotel Carlingford. The pool, sauna, steam room and gym all stay open late which was ideal for us. The location of the hotel is perfect as it is less than a 5 minute walk to the centre of Carlingford. All the staff, especially the ones serving breakfast and at the swimming pool, were super helpful and friendly! Cannot recommend this place enough if you want to stay in County Louth.

My husband and I had a most enjoyable 3 night stay in the four seasons Carlingford just a few days ago. We got a very warm welcome at reception on our arrival and our waiter in the dining room for dinner was the most welcome, helpful, cheerful, charming waiter we ever met despite the fact he was working with a splinted, broken thumb. Dinner was delicious and very nicely presented with a good choice on the menu. Staff at breakfast were cheerful and helpful each morning where there was an adequate selection of dood on offer. Our bed was very comfortable, room was clean and warm as was bathroom. Highly recommended and very good value.

We had a wonderful stay in the Four Seasons in Carlingford. The staff who seemed to be local were very pleasant and helpful. The food and the accomodation were excellent. Four of us stayed in this hotel and I would highly recommend it. It is such a relaxing hotel with picturesque views and Carlingford is such a lovely village. I will definitely be staying there again.

Stayed here on a 2night plus one dinner package break. After booking it I read some poor reviews on the hotel and was a bit apprehensive about the trip. I was pleasantly surprised to find everything was lovely. The room was clean and bright and the bathroom was spotless. Breakfasts and dinner were good. I had no fault to find with it. It is centrally located to the town and local walking trails.

If looking for a quiet night away then this is the place but not for me, room was very clean no complaints there. The bar décor needs updating carpet grubby as was chairs. We were booked in for B&B&Dinner, the menu was limited 3 starters to choose from, I had soup it was that hot and thick(like concrete) that I had to add cold water from jug to enjoy it, my husband had pork belly he said he never tasted anything so bad, the veg were blasted in microwave. We complained to the waiter about quality of food but nothing came about it. Decided to have a drink in bar lacking atmosphere even if there was piped music playing throughout wouldn't be too bad. Breakfast was the norm improvement of evening before. Would I recommend Four Seasons no, needs to review there menu for package deals(different menu if paying for dinner separate not through package deal). Carlingford itself is lovely to walk about and Newry not too far to drive too.

We stayed here for two nights and had a very enjoyable stay. The hotel was excellent, very clean and spacious, We had dinner and breakfast for two days and food was excellent every time. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. The leisure facilities were excellent also .The location of the hotel is fantastic being near shops and pubs and views were amazing. I could not fault the hotel and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a short break in a great location. Hope to go back soon.

Hotel staff were very nice the room was great the dinner was super as were the waiters. It would have been nice to have had the option of smoked salmon at breakfast. We look forward to our next break there soon . 5 STAR. Jim Thompson.

We have been to this hotel a number of times and really enjoy it. The staff are so friendly and helpful and there is always a buzz about the place. The male attendant at the leisure centre was very helpful when my husband had difficulty there and couldnt have done enough for us. We will be back again

Staff very professional and very friendly.

hi; the four seasons is a beautiful hotel. the room was lovely and the staff were very friendly. the only complaint i would is about the dinner menu, it was too small, too basic. i would suggest a little more variety. over all we had a lovely stay and would not hesitate in going back again. noel mooney
 
 
 
 
 

by kate on Oct 30 2013 19:43

Rooms are quite basic in this hotel and the residence lounge closed at 1am which I have never heard of before, however on a brighter note the staff were extremely friendly and all locals which was lovely to see.

I had a nice one night stay in Four Seasons on 15th Sept. Was a wet and windy day on arrival but once inside Catherine at reception Had all under control and I was able to go to room despite it only being about 1 o'clock. Room was grand for me but toilet and shower were for handicapped people which didnt bother me.. Hotel was still lively from wedding the night before. Thankfully the weather improved and I was able to explore the nooks and crannys of Carlingford. Slept well and had a lovely breakfast next morning thanks to friendly staff and layout of room. As is usual as a solo traveller I still had to pay for a double room. Haven't stayed in a hotel yet that will give you a single rate but I live in hope. All in all a nice hotel to visit. Thanks to all the staff. JOE.

Brilliant location in a beautiful scenic village, lovely hotel, great leisure centre with a good size, even level swimming pool, staff very nice & friendly, had dinner there one evening, which was very tasty. Would highly recommend it.
 
 
 
 
 

by Ganstamothers on Sep 11 2013 12:29

We booked a bargain break so we got a good value. Room and leisure center a bit shabby but ok. Reception staff were a bit erratic... Hotel setting and surroundings is beautiful and the food in Liberties Bistro was gorgeous.

Great location on the outskirts of the town, however the signage needs to be improved, we nearly passed it the first time. The room was nice and the bed comfy, but the TV was Cr*p!!!!! It was discoloured and not all the channels worked. The wifi was ok but I would have preferred an ethernet connection in the room. If we hadn't had the laptop the TV would have led to us complaining. The shower and bathroom were grand but beware there is no plug for an electric razor, so bring an adaptor. the bar was nice and beside the restaurant, nice selection of drinks including the locally produced whiskey. The food was excellent and nicely served and presented. Breakfast was nice also and all staff are very friendly. The pool, jacuzzi and steam room were nice and clean and enjoyable to visit. The wet kit bags were a nice touch, other hotel pools need to provide same. The garden outside the bar/restaurant had a nice lawn and water feature plus smoking area. There was small bit of confusion when we booked in and checked out regarding the inclusive meals so ensure you have a print out or text showing your tariff. Also during our second night the fire alarm went off at four in the morning. This was a guests fault smoking in the corridor, but it took a very long time to turn off the alarm. The hotel were not at fault however for the initial alarm. Nice location and good facilities, I would recommend it.

The hotel is in a great location,within walking distance of all the local bars ,restaurants and opposite the lough, the staff were friendly and helpful and the leisure centre was well equipped. We arrived midweek and were upgraded to a suite which was a nice touch. First trip to carlingford but would come back.
 
 
 
 
 

by Anne on Jun 12 2013 07:23

Room comfy and large but curtains too let too much light in. Exercise class / loud music on the grass outside my window before 10am so if you're looking to sleep late... Fresh fruit available for breakfast - breakfast generally okay - coffee not fantastic. Didn't use the leisure facilities. Staff helpful. Dinner was good but my friend had the vegetarian option which wasn't. Bar staff very slow. Beautiful location overlooking the water. Overall a pleasant experience and good value for what I paid.
 
 
 
 
 

by abbie on May 29 2013 18:11

Very dissapointed to enter our room to see the shape on the bed were some was obviously sitting after the bed had been made. Worse was to come. The toilet had been used and left unflushed. Disgusting. Bits of broken clear plastic on the floor which I thought was glass at first. After the shock of the room we had dinner which was nice but was spoilt by other guests shouting and roaring and staff didnt seem to ask them to keep it down. The bar was pleasent. Staff were polite and friendly. Breakfast was ok but the orange juice tasted like it was watered down. The hotel just needs to shake itself a little and all would be fine.
 
 
 
 
 

by Phelim Reilly on Apr 29 2013 15:55

Hotel had it all, with the leisure facilities and nice Bar & Restaurant. The room was basic but still had all we needed. Got at the right price this is a top place to stay. Carlingford is a friendly and buzzing little village and on a nice sunny day there are very few places that would beat it.

Very helpful staff room was ok my husband cut his toe on the shower rim as it was very sharp so be very careful when getting out. The barman started to hoover the bar about an hour before closing had to waite for service every time we need a drink even though we were the only one in the bar. Maybe at the weekend there are more staff on duty? Lovely walks and drives in the area.
