Had a most enjoyable family meal here during the Christmas holiday. Food and service was excellent. Surprised when I received a letter yesterday from Carlingford Arms. Letter contained my driver's license which I had mislaid there during my visit. I had not noticed I was missing the license. Well done to Sharon for returning it so promptly. Will definitely be...

Went today (30/12), plenty of room, fire was lit and food was great. I had the steakburger - absolutely tremendous. Staff were excellent, price was reasonable for what we got. I would definitely recommend and certainly will return. 5 stars.

The establishment serves excellent food with polite and efficient staff, and a wonderful atmosphere. However my only negative comment is the invasive level of volume from the live music at night. In general I don't usually have a problem but on this particular occasion it could be classed as unhealthy. I don't understand why patrons who have just enjoyed a... More

Three couples on our Christmas night out and had a meal in the Carlingford Arms. Fantastic value for money. Two steaks for thirty euro with all the trimmings. Amazing value. Cooked to perfection and came with garlic mash or plain mash or chips, onions mushroom and a selection of sauces. The garlic mash was to die for. All came in... More

A fantastic welcome from the staff! Visited this pub/ restaurant a few times in one weekend whilst in Carlingford for a wedding and our large group received a proper Irish welcome every time! The food was fantastic and the staff were constantly bringing out extra things for us to try, the hospitality was second to none! I would recommend this... More

We stopped into this place last night for a quick drink. We decided to pair out Guinness with a dozen oysters. The pints were great and the oysters were fresh and delicious. The staff were very friendly and all in all there was a lovely atmosphere in the place, helped by the roaring fire. Stop by if you get the... More
