Good Hotel Guide Review
Beneath Slieve Foy mountain, stepping distance from the sea and within walled gardens, the Carroll family’s Georgian house affords sea or mountain views at every turn. ‘A tree’s length’ from medieval Carlingford, the house is filled with family photographs and heirlooms, fresh flowers and squashy sofas. Traditionally decorated bedrooms, sprinkled with antiques, have home-made biscuits to go with those views; most have a roll-top bath and a power shower in a modern bathroom. After a walk up the hills or along the seashore, return to a fire in the drawing room. Modern Irish dishes such as local salmon with salsa verde are served in the dining room, elegant with candles. At breakfast: home-made jams and marmalades.
