Wonderful sweet shop with so much choice of jars of sweets. Lots of memories come back when you look along the shelves. Ice cream is also 1st class and I recommend the Honeycomb.

OK, I'm searching my memory here but I believe it was the Honeycomb Ice Cream that we enjoyed here that was among the best ever. Especially enjoyed talking to the charming and very helpful proprietress. A must stop in Carlingford.

A lovely sweet shop with an enticing window display. A great variety of tempting treats, both blasts from the past and stuff we hadn't seen before.
