The house was lovely and suitable for a large group. However I felt the house was in need of a good clean. The dust was clearly visible and some of the saucepans and utensils we had to wash before we could use them.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this house and found the owners to be very accommodating. They also gave us some great tips for things to do and places to eat in the surrounding area. I'd highly recommend this house if your looking to visit Carlingford.
We booked Cooley cottage to stay for a hen party and it was perfect. It sleeps 12 and the conservatory was beautiful to sit in- perfect for our hen party activities. There was wifi and heating! Everything that we needed. Plenty of off road parking. Would definitely recommend if trying to organise a hen party- Jenis made everything easy!
The house itself is warm, clean and comfortable. However it is literally on the main road into Carlingford and for 2 of the main bedrooms the traffic noise is very bad. We had to use ear plugs at night. It would not be a suitable house for young children due to the risks from the main road. This is a pity as it has a nice back garden. While we were there the gate was held open all the time to allow the owner access to a storage shed on the property. We had grown up children so it wasn't a problem for us. Due to its location on the main road, although it is only 5km from Carlingford, it would be a dangerous walk.
A lovely clean and warm cottage with plenty of beds. Very welcoming host who had the house spotless and some condiments in the kitchen. Better for people willing to share rooms as three rooms sleep three/four people in each. The outside doesn't look like much as it's on the main road but inside is perfect. €15 taxi to the village of Carlingford in a local 8 seater but lots of available taxis. We visited new years eve weekend and had a great time!
