  • "The Cottage was very nice, unfortunately the road up to it from the Main road was unsurfaced and rocky, very unsuitable for Driving on!"

    the Owner was very helpful and told me that he was aware of that and would be getting it sorted out soon! Apart from that it was a most enjoyable Holiday! i would certainly return there but only if the road was Cemented or Tarmacked! So with this in Mind i gave it 4 stars.

  • "The Irish weather wasn't perfect, but the Irish cottage was."

    It was bliss sitting in front of the cosy wood stove, eating fish and chips from Sharkey's of Warrenpoint, and listening to the rain pelting down outside. Very atmospheric. The road up to the cottage was long and sometimes rocky, but it was worth it for the peace and isolation and the stunning scenery - mountains on three sides and a view out towards Carlingford Lough. At night the twinkling lights were gorgeous. The cottage itself was spotlessly clean (much appreciated in these Covid times) comfortable and the owners have gone to a great deal of trouble to make sure it is supplied with everything you could need and want. A lot of attention has been paid to the layout of the cottage and I liked the way the living area is well separated from the sleeping area. It's deceptively spacious for such an old building, with nice roomy bathrooms. There are plenty of radiators as well, which along with the stove, I imagine would make the cottage warm in winter. I would definitely recommend this cottage to others and definitely stay there again myself. Thanks to Yvonne and Eammon for providing such a lovely retreat and in such a lovely part of Northern Ireland. Unfortunately the booking experience with Sykes was a bit of a shambles and not very encouraging with regard to using them again.

  • "A cottage with exceptional views that delighted us all the time."

    Comfortable and welcoming. The lane and the track up were long but the solitude was welcome as a refreshing time from our normal lives. Walking straight from the cottage to the hills was a joy. If published, preferably without name please.

  • "Comfortable and well appointed cottage."

    The owner, Eamonn, was very helpful and hospitable throughout our stay. The cottage is nearer to Killowen than Rostrevor and is situated 1.7miles along a single track road (Kilfeaghan Road) from the main A2 road, care is needed with oncoming traffic when driving along Kilfeaghan Road as there are limited passing places. The last section of the road from the picnic area is like a farm track and one has to drive carefully in order not to ground your vehicle. The cottage is sited in a lovely peaceful and quiet setting, with splendid views of Carlingford Lough in the distance. Although Wifi is provided at the cottage, we were unable to get any mobile phone signal (Vodafone) until we were near The Killowen Distillery which is situated approximately a mile from the cottage back down the single track road towards the A2.

  • "Lovely property."

    Very clean and nicely decorated. Very quiet, and lovely scenery. Owner friendly and welcoming. The road up to the cottage is however is in pretty poor condition at the end - could be a real problem is you have a car with low clearance.
