“Great B&B”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

We travelled to Carlingford with another couple and stayed in Grove House on Sunday 16th February 2014. We wanted somewhere quiet that was within walking distance of village but not right slap bang in the middle of every thing - Grove House was perfect - approx 10/15 minute walk to the centre of the village. Our rooms were large, immaculately clean. Good choice of breakfast options. Wendy the owner was very helpful (instead of the tiny little milk sachets she happily gave us a large jug of milk for our room as we get through a lot of tea and coffee making!).
Restaurant recommendation - The Ghan House - fabulous, unlike any other restaurant experience - can't recommend more highly.

Room Tip: We were in rooms 1 and 2 which are the rooms at the very front of the house

We have stayed in Grove house about 3/4 times now and we couldn't fault it. Wendy is fantastic, she is so friendly and professional. It's hotel standard with a personal touch. We have stayed there when traveling around on our motorbikes and because of the gravel yard and for extra safety with our belongings on the bike she allowed us to park them in her private back yard, out of sight. It's a very short walk into the village where there are many good eating houses and pubs. Carlingford is a lovely village with a lot to see for a small place, we like going there and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere other than Grove house. It's very, very clean, You get a great choice for breakfast and we always go for the cooked breakfast which is tasty and there's plenty of toast, tea/coffee should you want it. Also it's table service so your not trying to make your way thru the queuing people like a hotel to be served food which has been sitting under heaters. The rooms are well equipped and comfortable. We are regulars now and wouldn't stay anywhere else if we are up that direction.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good from what I can see.

I've stayed in a number of B&Bs in the Carlingford area and I must give Wendy all due respect for keeping up such a lovely, comfortable and practical house. Wifi connection is perfect, bed are generous, bathroom extra clean. You won't be disturbed even by neighbors, perfect if you need a good night of sleep before work. In the morning, Wendy will prepare you a tasty breafkfast in no time and you'll be on your way!

We stayed here for one night after reading the reviews on trip advisor and it was exactly as described! Wendy the landlady is very friendly, efficient and obviously takes great pride in her home. It was spotless, comfortable, warm and the breakfast was second to none. Comfortable bed, quiet house, great shower all add up to a home from home. Definitely recommend this B&B over a hotel any day.

This b&b was great. The rooms are big and clean with a great bed and a good bathroom. Speaking of cleanliness this b&b was absolutely spotless. There wasn't a single grain of dust anywhere. Good location with just a 10 minute walk to the small centre. Also, very helpful and inviting landlady who drove us to the bus when we were leaving.
