    We went to this hotel to meet friends for a drink. The car park on the main hotel side of the road was full so we parked on the other side where there are barriers both going in and coming out of the car park. The barrier lifted upon entering so no problem there.

    We had a nice few drinks in a busy, noisy bar with lots of children, small children, running around.

    Following our evening we proceeded to exit hotel, walk across the road entering the car park and drive towards the barrier only to see a small A4 notice attached to the barrier "please contact reception for code to exit car park"!! This entailed us having to re-park our car, walk back across the road, enter the hotel, walk up to reception and request the code for the barrier! Needless to remark it took the good out of the evening for us. I have not idea why this system is in place. It would have saved us an unnecessary trip across the road too if they had put the tel. no. of reception onto this notice.

    If the main car park is full again I would turn away from the hotel and go somewhere else.

    Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. As some people might be aware reading this, the hotel have implemented a new entry & exit barrier for two of its car parks about 3 months ago. As you can appreciate, our hotel is ideally located between Belfast and Dublin and unlike so many hotels we offer FREE car parking for guest s within the hotel. However we were finding that the levels of cars being parked at the hotel were increasing for people leaving cars and travelling on to other locations – resulting in our own guests not being able to find a suitable car parking space.

    With this in mind, and at the request of some of our customers, we decided to implement a coded barrier system. There is a clear notice upon entering our Bernish Car Park saying “CODE REQUIRED TO EXIT CAR PARK – AVAILABLE AT RECEPTION” and on every main door at the hotel there is a large sign “Have you got your Code” (This includes our leisure centre and spa entry doors as well) – I apologise for the inconvenience this caused you for having to go back to the main reception for this as I appreciate this would have been frustrating, but we really have tried to do this in the best interest of our patrons and would be disappointed if this deterred you from coming to the hotel again.

    Please can I ask anyone reading this that if they are parking their car in the car park with the barrier, please ensure you obtain the code before leaving the hotel.

    Have driven past this hotel 100's of time, and never really liked the look of it - how wrong we were - stayed for one night in a huge family room (most hotels don't cater for families of 5) and the facilities were great - Spa and gym great as was staff and food. Highly recommend.

    I booked 1 night in this hotel for my boyfriend and I. The package included bed and breakfast, 4 course evening meal and full use of the leisure facilities. The room was so spacious and the bed was huge. Both the bedroom and bathroom were spotless clean and included tea making facilities and the usual bathroom amenities. Although we didn't have a great view I wasn't overly bothered. We headed straight for the spa area and the outdoor hot tub was fab. The weather was glorious and the view over the beautiful gardens just made it so relaxing. Dinner was superb. Could not fault the meal at all and the staff are so helpful, friendly and extremely welcoming. Overall excellent value for money and I will def be returning.

    Our stay at the Carrigdale on friday 27th June 2014 was an excellent expierence from start to finish. We were only there for one night but we will be definitely be back for a longer stay. The hotel itself is absouletly immaculate throughout and the rooms are just amazing. All the facilities are there, from the leisure centre to the fantastic gardens, however it was the staff that makes the Carrigdale special.. Thank you one and all..

    we had two nights stay here to explore this part of Ireland, had an enjoyable trip and good nights sleep in the comfy room with a lovely view over the countryside.
    By far this is the nicest part of Ireland that we have visited.

    Thank you for taking the time to post your comments and I am delighted with your comments that this was the nicest part of Ireland that you visited! County Louth and the surrounding areas has so many amazing things to do and we are less than an hours drive from Belfast and Dublin so an ideal location to travel around.
