Had the most wonderful stay at The Sands B&B in picturesque Rostrevor, Co Down. The B&B is just beautiful, lovely for a quiet stay and you can check out the live music sessions in town. Anne and John are so welcoming and nothing is too much, we had a beautiful breakfast, which set us up for the day! The views from the B&B out to the lough were really lovely. Our room was beautifully laid out, en-suite and the amenities include gorgeous natural toiletries, tea/coffee and tv/wifi. I would definitely recommend booking a wee break there as it was a wholely enjoyable experience. Many thanks.

All areas spotlessly clean, breakfasts are very good and John and Anne (the owners) are very friendly and helpful. Beds are very comfortable and rooms have fantastic view over Carlingford Lough. Great scenery all around and well worth a visit to the area.

September 2020 stayed for 2 nights in the sands b&b with my wife the room was very quiet at night, stunning views of the Mournes and Carlingford Lough, very comfy beds and a very tasty breakfast. Great vegetarian omelettes! Anne, John and their daughter could not do enough for us, they are fantastic hosts! Very clean covid conscience service. Would highly recommend for a staycation. We can’t wait to come back! Gary and Roisin

Took me ages to get around to writing as I don't normally write negative reviews. Basic room food ok had better breakfasts. Needs a tweak from the "hotel inspector".. My main complaint was the noise from the owners. Television very loud could hear it through the wall. The daughter who was apparently a night worker was very noisy. I could go on but no need. Just to say I felt uncomfortable. I cancelled my second night's stay and was immediately refunded. No refund for the disturbed night's sleep. Maybe I was just unlucky???

My son and I are hiking Ireland through MACs Adventures, and we stayed at the Sands for two nights. John and Anne are the most gracious, welcoming hosts you could imagine. So helpful, kind and considerate. Fantastic conversationalists to boot. Gorgeous views of the waterfront. Rostrevor Inn has delicious meals and if you can catch live music in the bar, well, lucky you. A recommendation from John made our evening, All things completely spectacular. The Sands is a real treat.

Our room had a lovely view and was very comfortable. The breakfast was good, but we have certainly had better in other B and Bs. There is seating in the bedroom but no communal room. Wifi was good. I note that Booking.com are only publishing reviews with a score of 10! They didn't publish my review which scored 7.3!

We provide our guests with flat screen television in the privacy of their rooms rather than an old fashioned television lounge.

We loved our stay at The Sands B & B, with a beautiful view of the water and mountains from our room. Couldn't have received a nicer reception and recommendations for dinner nearby. There are lovely walks very close to the B & B, and its an easy drive from both Dublin and Belfast. It's an incredible deal for a quiet place to rest and explore the nearby mountains.

On the Northern Ireland coastal drive, I booked this way ahead so that we could visit the Mountains of Mourne, amazing views from the bedroom window. Welcoming host, very comfortable room with good beds and pillows. Able to walk into the village for an evening meal. Rostrevor is charming C.S Lewis came from around there and there is a Narnia trail in the park. Lots of nice walks. Good breakfast, along with the family Irish music playing. Would certainly stay again

My wife and booked at the Sands on recommendation, whilst attending a Christian conference in Warrenpoint. The Sands is a well-positioned house overlooking the Lough, on a grassy square jointly owned by the residents. We were greeted by former political journalist John Keene and later met his folk-singer wife Ann. We had a good sized room with very comfortable twin beds overlooking the Lough. A test for out hosts came when I caught my toe on an exposed screw in the bathroom ( rubber doorstop less the rubber). It bled quite a bit. We told them in the morning and they tried to find us assistance. We thought at the time they could have been more apologetic, but later they more than compensated with a reduction in the bill (we lost the best part of a day having to go to A&E in Newry). The breakfasts were good - they were friendly and we would return. Ideally suited for visiting the Mourne Mountains - driving and walking. Also activities along the Carlingford Lough. A good drive is over the Carlingford ferry. One hour from Belfast - 90 minutes from Dublin - ideally situated.. We had good meals at the Rostrevor Inn and at Diamonds in Portadown.
