“Excellent, Just Like Home”
Reviewed 26 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Four of us have just spent a very comfortable five days in Kilbroney Cottage, although there is plenty of room for six, with three good size bedrooms and a good size dining kitchen with all mod con's. The welcome parcel, wine, milk, butter etc., was a nice touch and much appreciated.
The beds we slept in were comfortable as was the one our friends used. There are two lounges, each with comfortable suites. One lounge has a TV and DVD player, the other is for relaxing in or for a quiet read.
An excellent bathroom with a powerful shower and lots of hot water and it was nice to have plenty of towels provided, (which is not always the case in holiday rentals).
There are great views from the front of the house, overlooking the Mournes and Carlingford Loch, whilst the back garden, with patio furniture, looks up across fields where sheep and cattle graze, occasionally paying us a visit.
The cottage is in a peaceful location, within walking distance of Rostrevor Square, 5 to 10 minutes, but far enough to be away so as not to be bothered by any village noise.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Kilbroney Cottage.

“Very comfortable accommodation”
Reviewed 2 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Myself and 6 friends stayed at kilbroney cottage for a weekend break. It has 3 good sized bedrooms (2 twins and a double) with very comfortable mattresses for an excellent night's sleep. The large bathroom had a powerful walk-in shower and plenty of hot water. Good heating system and everything for self-catering in the kitchen. Aiden the owner left us wine, milk, cheese and butter - very thoughtful. There is good parking in the driveway, an excellent patio with furniture - overall the cottage proved excellent accommodation. Location is good and it is walking distance to the fairy glen or into Rostrevor, though uphill on the way back. I have no hesitation recommending this bungalow. Thankyou Aiden.

“Walk in the front door and you're at home - it's magic.”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

person found this review helpful

We've just spent nine weeks in Kilbroney Cottage - and we really don't know how to put in words how much we've enjoyed it. It wasn't a nine week holiday, but it could have been. Living along the road in Warrenpoint we had to move out of our house while we had some remedial works done - and we just could not have chosen a better place to stay. It's not exactly down to any one aspect - it can only be the sum of the parts that makes it so magical, dare I say so romantic!
There's the beautiful views from the front, with a tantalising glimpse of Carlingford Lough. There's real old-fashioned fields with hedges and an interesting assortment of sheep and cows out the back - and stay in the Spring, and you'll be rewarded with the sight of the newly born calves and lambs. Plus the rabbits bounding up the hill when you get up in the morning! Get a sunny afternoon and you won't want to go any further than the back garden - it's that relaxing. We could go on - two cosy lounges, an easy to live with kitchen, a lovely walk in shower to refresh - and the most comfortable bed to end the day in. Rostrevor town is an easy drive, or for the energetic - a great downhill walk out and a stiff uphill walk back. There's all you need down there - we particularly recommend Paula's Fish & Chips; freshly cooked, piping hot and great value for money.
Thank you Kilbroney Cottage.
We'd love to be back - any day!

“Perfect place for a family holiday”
Reviewed 20 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

Had a really lovely stay here, beautiful scenery. Kids loved the rabbits in the mornings. Really clean and well maintained inside the house feels like home with everything you need and more. Excellent shower comfy memory foam beds and a great owner who had the essentials in the fridge and the heat on to warm the house. Also was nice that the owner put up some Christmas decorations to make our stay even more memorable as we went to santa's cottage not far from it. Will definatly be back as we all really enjoyed it and didn't want to leave.

“A smashing place to stay!”
Reviewed 27 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Only a short walk (uphill) from the centre of Rostrevor; Kilbroney Cottage is an ideal location for a stay in the Mourne area.

The Cottage itself has 3 Bedrooms; only 1 is a double. The only slight downside for those whose Children prefer a Bath; there isn't one! The Walk in Shower in the Bathroom is excellent though!

The Kitchen is well equipped, including a Dishwasher; with the Washing Machine in a small 'Utility Room'.

There are two very comfortable Sitting Rooms; one with a TV and DVD Player.

The rear of the Cottage has an outlook onto Fields; the Front to the start of The Mountains of Mourne.

The Owner, Aidan, made us very welcome and had supplied Tea / Coffee / Milk / Fresh Orange / Bread / Butter so that we had the means for Breakfast; as were arriving in the late Evening.

Aidan also, very thoughtfully, supplied a Bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, which was nicely Chilled; and very welcome after our journey!!

We, (my Wife, Brother in Law and I) had a very comfortable 4 Night stay!
