We stayed one night in this lovely B&B. With our own private entrance with a lovely sitting room and 2 ensuite bedrooms, one double and one twin, with a beautiful garden and great views of the Mourne mountains, we couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay for our first night.

We were a family travelling with 2 teens, so had booked both rooms meaning we had the whole place to ourselves. Claire and Brian were wonderful hosts, greeting us after a long flight with tea, juice and homemade cookies, taking time out to give us local recommendations, and check in periodically to see that everything was alright. Breakfasts were delicious...

As soon as you park and walk through the space between the house and the garage toward the garden, you will immediately feel as if you've arrived in your own peaceful retreat. The garden is beautiful and inviting...there is a little fish pond and tons of colorful blooms everywhere. Beyond the garden is a wonderful view of the Mourne Mountains,...
