The property

Newry 4.3 miles.

Resting on the outskirts of Killeavy near Newry is this delightsome, detached house, Whitehorn House.

With exceptional views of Camlough Mountain and just a stone's throw away from Camlough Lake, this is the perfect dwelling for a family of five's countryside break.

Two convenient off-road parking spaces greet you upon arrival, before taking in those amazing views surrounding the house.

Head inside and leave your things in the handy porch, before making your way into the charming kitchen; a space fitted with everything you need to whip up mouth-watering meals, as well as a handy washing machine!

Gather your group in the dining room next door and settle down to an indulgent meal as the woodburning stove crackles away in the background.

Continue to the sitting room where a plush, corner sofa awaits with enough seats for all the family; switch on the TV and enjoy a movie night together!

When night falls, progress upstairs to discover two tastefully decorated bedrooms, one being a king-size that benefits from built-in storage and access to a walk-in wardrobe, and the other being a triple room that is ideal for the kids.

Both bedrooms enjoy access to a contemporary shower room that has been tiled floor-to-ceiling and contains a glass, walk-in shower.

The surrounding area is truly stunning and provides you with many outdoors activities to do, including embarking on a hike through the Camlough Mountains, exploring the ruins of Ballymacdermot Court Tomb, taking in the scenery at the Bernish Viewpoint, and visiting Camlough Lake for a spot of kayaking.

Venture north to Camlough where you can find your amenities, including the popular Camocha restaurant, and a well-stocked convenience store; travel a small distance from the village to discover the delights of Derrymore House and the Derrymore Woods Play Area.

Newry isn't far and is home to a fantastic selection of eateries where you can grab a tasty bite to eat, followed by a spot of retail therapy at The Quays and The Buttercrane, as well as a superb Go-Kart Track and Formula Karting for thrill seekers.

Delve into the local history with a visit to the stunning Newry Cathedral or make a stop at Bagenal’s Castle which houses a small museum detailing local history through artifacts.

Continue south from Newry, and you will find yourself in Warren Point and Rostrevor, where you can play golf at the local club or venture into the close-by Rostrevor Forest and the Silent Valley Mountain Park.

For a day by the coast, be sure to venture to Newcastle where a plethora of beachfront amusements await, along with the Murlough National Nature Reserve; or explore the stunning close-by sights, from Slieve Gullion to the Carlingford to Omeath Greenway.

There is so much fun to be had from Whitehorn House.

About the location


Newcastle 21.1 miles; Belfast 38.5 miles

This Northern Ireland city is bustling with life and vibrancy, known as the ‘Gateway to the North’, it sits tight among the natural beauty of the towering Mourne Mountains and the Ring of Gullion AONB. It is a well-established shopper’s haven, with shopping centres such as The Quays and The Buttercrane, housing all the major stores and fine eateries you could ask for, while many independent stores offer a variety of unique souvenirs. Bagenal’s Castle boasts an interesting history comprising a 16th-century fortified tower and a 19th-century warehouse, now home to the Tourist Office and a museum, which are well worth a visit. Once you have explored the city centre to your hearts content, enjoy a scenic drive along the Mourne Coastal Route to find a sweeping range of grand peaks intertwined with many walking and cycling trails, one of the most beautiful corners of Northern Ireland. For Game of Thrones fans, Westeros comes to life in this part of the country, where the White Walkers once marched through the Haunted Forest or as the locals know it, Tollymore Forest Park shadowed by The Mournes. Further afield is the thriving city of Belfast with a number of attractions to discover, such as its Botanic Gardens, its hilltop castle, the grand City Hall building and St. George’s 19th-century Market, as well as the fascinating Titanic museum showcasing hands-on displays and interactive galleries. You are also just a stone’s throw away from the magical landscapes of Ireland’s Ancient East, home to a series of festivals, historic sites and mesmerising landscapes framed by the River Shannon and the Irish Sea. Find your escape in this fabulous city, for an experience you won’t forget in a hurry.
