Good Hotel Guide Review
A tree’s length from medieval Carlingford, this pretty Georgian house sits in mature walled gardens. It has been the Carroll family home for almost 30 years. Now Paul Carroll runs the hotel; his mother, Joyce, tends the garden and adorns the rooms with freshly cut flowers. The house is filled with family photographs and heirlooms, squashy sofas, antique French beds and claw-footed baths. Log-burners warm the drawing room and the ‘elegant’ dining room where menus based on abundant produce from lough and countryside include lapsang souchong smoked tea consommé, Lough Neagh eel, beetroot and turnip. Traditionally decorated bedrooms have an iPhone dock, biscuits, a modern bathroom and mountain views; most are in a garden annexe.
