  • "This is a beautiful property, very spacious with great facilities."

    It was spotlessly clean on our arrival. Great base for us visiting family in Belfast while still having a break. Several people have mentioned the dogs being a noise issue, we barely heard them. We would definite go back

    So roomy and well maintained , with everything you could possibly require. We were met by Ger, who welcomed us so genuinely. He told us to enjoy our stay at the house, which we certainly did!

  • "Fantastic house with lots of space."

    Only downside is that there is no garden to the back of the property. Only to the front which is used as a parking area. Not a problem in the winter but worth knowing when you come in spring and summer.

    The welcome basket was very generous and had no problems what so ever. We were over visiting family and had my sister and her family stay over 2 nights. Everything we needed was provided and the beds where very comfortable. I would totally recommend this property and we will rebook for next year when we back visiting family. Merv & Wendy

  • "Very comfortable, generously equipped house."

    It had everything we needed. Ideal location for local sight seeing. Lots to see and do in the area. Gerard was the perfect host! Very quick to respond to requests, very generous with the best welcome hamper! Very spacious home, note that the only outdoor space is in front, just enough space to park 2, possibly 3 cars. Also, there can be a bit of noise from the dogs next door. But we really enjoyed our stay. Would be very happy to return.

    High quality, spotless and everything you could possibly need. The photos don't do it justice. I would 100% want to stay there again. A lovely warm welcome by the host who greeted us with flowers from his farm, basics like bread, milk and butter and a full snack basket (the kids were particularly delighted at that!).

The property

Tucked away in the town of Downpatrick, in County Down, Sliabh Amharc is a wonderful holiday home from which to explore the true delights of Northern Ireland.

Sliabh Amharc offers a group of seven with a welcoming and well-presented home-from-home, whilst enjoying close proximity to an abundance of amenities and attractions.

Park up in either of the two off-road parking spaces provided before unloading your bags and making your way inside this lovely dwelling to begin your staycation.

A lengthy journey calls for some well-deserved rest, so upon entry, kick off your shoes in the hallway and make your way through to the spacious sitting room, where you'll find a high-quality leather suite gathered in front of the television, enticing you to put your feet up and unwind with a family-favourite.

Move through the property to the kitchen, well-equipped with a good selection of appliances and stylishly-appointed with an elegant kitchen island, providing a lovely spot to share a bottle of wine as the designated chef whips up delectable meals to be enjoyed in the dining room, with seating for all of the group.

As day draws to night, pour in the bubbles and prepare for bed with an indulgent soak in the tub, or if you'd prefer, make use of the spacious walk-in shower for a quick rinse before heading upstairs to rest your head.

Settled on the first floor are four well-presented bedrooms, comprising two king-size rooms, a super-king-size with the added benefit of its very own en-suite bathroom, and an intimate single room, ideal for an escape away from the excitement.

Thought to be the home of Saint Patrick, the town of Downpatrick is steeped in fascinating history waiting to be explored, including The Saint Patrick Centre, the landmark of Struell Wells and the Gothic structure of Down Cathedral, believed to be the burial site of the patron saint.

Avid golfers will delight with a visit to St Patrick's Golf Club, whilst Downpatrick Racecourse offers the perfect excuse to get dressed up to the nines and try your luck on the horses!

Refuel following a day of excitement with your choice of pub, restaurant, cafe or takeaway, or head to the local shop to pick up some last minute ingredients to rustle up a hearty meal from the comfort of your holiday home.

Pack up your beach-going essentials and head to the glorious sands of Tyrella Beach, where you can spend lazy afternoons lounging amongst the sands with a good book in hand, or take to the waters and paddle the shores of the Irish Sea.

Further inland, lose yourself amongst the hedged maze at Seaforde Gardens & Tropical Butterfly House, or discover the serene indoor jungle, home to a vibrant collection of free-flying butterflies ranging from Blue Morpho to the Scarlett Peacock and the Tree Nymph.

Well placed for experiencing the delights of Northern Ireland, Sliabh Amharc is the perfect base for a memorable getaway.
