This is our second stay at the Crowne Plaza in Dundalk and it didn't disappoint. The hotel has a friendly welcome and the reception staff are very knowledgeable and are keen to help you find things to do around the area.
Our room was on the 8th floor and was spotless, with two large comfortable beds and the bathroom had a separate shower and bath - we booked a family room and it had everything we needed.
The bar area was buzzing with bank holiday residents, as well as locals coming in for the food. As we were on a package which included a 2-course meal, we were given a smaller menu to choose from, however when we asked if we could choose an item (of same value) from the main menu, there was no problem with this. The food was good, although I chose Thai Green Curry and it seemed to be to be between a Thai/Indian dish as opposed to a creamy thai green curry - but was good all the same! The deserts were gorgeous and we were full by the end of the two courses.
A one man band set up and started to play at 8.30 - he was really good but finished up at 10.30pm which we felt was a little early, might be better if he started a bit later, as people were still eating and while not a problem could make for an even better night.
We headed to Carlingford which is off exit 18 on M1, a lovely little town which is worth a visit, scenery is amazing as just at the foot of the mountains and you'll find an array of places to eat and some small little shops to tempt you.
Breakfast was plentiful and the chef was there to cook your eggs just how you like them, staff were friendly and efficient and the views from the restaurant were amazing - a lovely setting to start off the day.
I will definitely be returning to the Crowne Plaza.
