  • "The property was lovely and we really enjoyed our stay."

    However the listing noted both shop and pub within a few minutes walking distance and was a key reason for choosing the cottage. However this was incorrect with both about 3 miles / 15 mins drive away which was very disappointing. Would suggest this is changed so the listing is accurate.

  • "A wonderful cottage set in beautiful surroundings, nice and roomy with a great open fire."

    Great garden with views of the mountains. We hired a car as its set in a rural part of Kilkeel, and took us around an hour and half to walk to the town one day (great scenery along the way). The Owner was very helpful and we enjoyed our stay very much.

  • "We had a very warm and friendly welcome from the hosts."

    The cottage was warm and comfortable. The only issue we had was finding the place. We stayed in Callahans cottage but the address and directions given to us were for the group of Hannas cottages, so we had to call and get someone to point us to the right place. After a very long day travelling this was very frustrating. Other than this we had a lovely time and would recommend to others

The property

Callaghan's bungalow dates back to the 1860s.

It sits amongst the countryside of Kilkeel in Northern Ireland.

With many of the property's original features making this a warming getaway, it boasts the perfect accommodation for families to enjoy.

Step into this rustic cottage and feel instantly welcomed by its charming décor.

To your right lies one of two delightful twin bedrooms, decorated in pretty fashion and lined with original whitewashed walls.

Next you will find a charming family bathroom; thoughtful touches of green help remind you of your marvellous location.

Meals can be prepared and enjoyed in the country-cottage-style kitchen/diner, multi-coloured floor tiles and wooden furnishings bring a rustic feel whilst attractive blue units boast all of the necessary appliances.

After a day of exploring the magnificent Mourne Mountains, you will look forward to returning to Callaghan's heart-warming sitting room, which is dominated by an alluring open fire.

The second twin bedroom boasts floral bed linen and sits next to a handy shower room, while a separate cloakroom lies conveniently opposite.

There aren't many better ways to enjoy this serene rural location than to sit on the picnic benches outside with a drink and simply taking it all in.

The excellent amenities of Kilkeel are within walking distance; this fishing port provides a fine selection of places to eat, drink and shop.

The seaside resort of Newcastle is a short drive up the coast, whilst a trip inland will take you to the beautiful city of Newry which is more than worth the 18-mile drive.

A welcoming, cosy cottage perfect for a break in Northern Ireland.

About the location


Newcastle 13 miles; Newry 18 miles; Belfast 50 miles

Kilkeel, a well-stocked harbour town, sits as the main fishing port on the Down coast and is one of Ireland's major fishing fleets. Hosting its 14th century church and laying just south of the glorious Mourne Mountains, this is one of Northern Ireland's finest holiday spots. The town itself boasts a pretty marina and a wealth of friendly spots to shop, eat and drink. For a worthy day trip, a short drive up the coast will take you to popular Newcastle, a charming coastal resort with seaside entertainment and much to see and do. A journey inland leads you towards the city of Newry which promises a memorable visit with much to keep you occupied including sightseeing and shopping. A lengthier drive away is Northern Ireland's capital, Belfast, a place packed with culture and fascinating attractions.
