“Great stay!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

We stayed in a double room on Saturday night. The hotel, the spa and leisure centre and the gardens are absolutely beautiful, the staff was great and the food was lovely. We had a dinner in the restaurant, my boyfriend had a duck which he really enjoyed and I had a fish which was also quite nice. The breakfast was delicious with a rich selection of fresh fruits, pastries, yoghurts and the poached eggs we ordered were also done perfectly.

I absolutely loved the facilities the hotel has on offer including gorgeous gardens, fun mini-golf and amazing outdoor hot-tub. Our room was spacious and clean and I didn't mind that there was no view (our room was facing the back side of the hotel). Even though there was a gorgeous view to the front of the hotel, facing the back meant that our room was completely quiet as the car park and the road are to the front. The only downside was a wi-fi which kept coming and going but we didn't really have much issue with that as we didn't need it that much. There was an issue with a bunch of kids running around at night, knocking on doors, we rang the reception but the manager was already informed by other guests and sorted the matter out immediately which was great.

Our special thanks goes to the lovely front desk staff who gave us a warm welcome and were very helpful in general during our stay. They also helped us out with our booking and let us swap to their great March deal for free which was much appreciated! Great place to stay, we will definitely be back soon!

Recently satyed here with my wife and 2 friends of ours. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful, from check in to the bar staff, cleaning staff and restaurant staff. The rooms are clean, and well maintained, although the view from the rooms at the back of the Hotel is terrible. There was a comedy show on the saturday night that we were there so there wasnt an option to move rooms as it was fully booked. The only fault with the rooms was the pillows. It was like sleeping on sandbags.
The food was fantastic. We all had bar food on the Friday when we arrived, it was delicious. The breakfast offered a great selection of items from fresh fruit, cereal, yogurt and pastries to a full cooked breakfast. The dinner in the retaurant on the Saturday night was pure class. Everything was cooked to perfection. I am not a foodie, but I know what Ilike and how it should taste.
I would highly recommend a stay here.

Room Tip: Get one at the front, the view is much better.

Thank you for your wonderful comments. Our staff are an excellent asset to the hotel and delighted you found them friendly and helpful. There is plenty of car parking at the hotel which is free to customers and the facilities including pool and garden are some of the many highlights at the hotel. The bar on a Saturday night is generally very busy with a great atmosphere and we will look forward to you returning for another enjoyable stay.

I stayed here one night whilst commuting from Scotland to Ireland. The room was spacious and well equipped. The bar food and restaurant food are both very good and served in generous portions. The sports facilities are excellent and the tariff was keenly priced.

Had a really great weekend there. The food was excellent and the staff were very friendly. The area was fantastic, loads of scenic places to go. Location is very handy from Dublin, 1 hour drive on great road. The rooms where great and lovely garden on the far side of the road. The pool was lovely. All and all a great weekend.

Room Tip: Was very busy at the weekend, make sure you get a room at the very end away from elevator on 4th fl...

The Carrickdale Hotel is ideal for anyone looking for scenic places to go as we are minutes away from the beautiful Cooley Peninsula and Slieve Gullion is about 10 minute’s drive from the hotel. I am glad you appreciated our beautiful landscaped gardens, leisure facilities and accommodation and delighted you enjoyed your weekend.

I stayed here with my three sisters. We got a good deal for dinner, bed and breakfast. Our rooms were huge, clean and very comfortable. Our dinner was from a set menu but we could have the value deducted from the a la carte menu too if we had of preferred. We all thought it was delicious, the restaurant was full but the service was still excellent. There was good lively music in the bar that night and as the hotel was fully booked there was plenty of people about and it had a nice atmosphere. The staff in all areas were all genuinely really friendly and willing to help. We had use of the pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi which we made use off. We had it all to ourselves first thing on Sunday morning. Would recommend this hotel and will definitely stay again.
