But the showers were cold. I was shown how to turn on the hot water, which made the showers lukewarm in the upstairs shower, but still freezing in the middle floor. Disappointing for a beautiful house which we paid a lot for. I had seen in a previous review and read that the showers didn't work for them either and had hoped they would have been fixed by the time we stayed, but that was not the case.
Great accommodation for a weekend visit to Carlingford. Clean, comfortable and very close to the center of Carlingford town, 5 mins walk approx.
There were 10 of us the 1st night and each had a bed to themselves. 4 doubles and 6 single beds. Second night we had two extra who happily settled for couches.
The Heating was easy to figure out and worked fine. Kitchen was functional and clean.
The sitting/dining room was very large with 3 comfortable couches and a dining room table that fit at least 12.
The Gas fire didn't work for us but we didn't spend much time trying to get it going because I read that it didn't work in a previous review.
As far as parking is concerned, there didn't seem to be many allocated spaces nor did it appear to be an issue.
Overall experience from our trip to Carlingford was very positive and there were no complaints with this apartment.
I highly recommend this property for larger groups of 10 comfortably.
I really enjoyed my stay here. Twelve of us stayed here and it was very comfortable, well equipped, clean and well furnished. The open space in the living room caters for big groups - ideal for us. Lots of kitchen utensils and 3 toilets/bathrooms. Beds very comfortable. One problem we had was the lack of hot water. I think there were 4 warm showers out of about 24 showers. We turned the hot water on and left it on for ages in the hope it would heat up but it failed to do so for the entire weekend! Quite disappointed by this because people expect a warm shower when they pay good money for accommodation. I would only stay here again if this was fixed. Other than that - great stay!
Stayed here for 2 nights. The property is handy for the town, only a 5 min walk to get to the pubs. The rooms were all clean, comfy beds and the living area is perfect for a big group. Big TV is there as well which was great for all of us to watch sports during the day. Would recommend the property to any big groups looking to spend a few nights in Carlingford.
Only downside was the property needs a little bit of handiwork done to it. The light in one bathroom didn't work as the cord seemed to have been pulled out and one of our guests had to bleed the radiators to get them to heat up so the house was very cold for a few hours after we had arrived. A nice touch would have been for the heat to have been put on before we arrived. There is a gas fireplace in the photos of the property as well but this wasn't working when we stayed.
