Terrific spot for a quiet weekend away with the family. The barn is superbly finished and the views amazing. Will definitely be back again.

“Amazing place!”
Reviewed 21 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This is a beautiful barn conversion with incredible attention to detail. The open living/kitchen space is spacious and light. The bedrooms are all lovely particularly the master bedroom which has a little balcony overlooking the same stunning views that the sitting area below on the decking has (lovely place to sit out at in the evening with a glass of wine). Paul was extremely pleasent and helpful and is worth talking to about the surrounding area and the trees in Kilbroney Park. Wonderful stay - many thanks!

This property is amazing. Beautifully presented with everything you could need in a holiday house. The interior is so impressive and the view from the substantial deck is nothing short of breathtaking. We thoroughly enjoyed our New Year and enjoyed walks and cosy meals in beautiful Rostrevor. We will definitely return.

“Back again and even better than remembered.”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Came back for a long weekend to attend family wedding, same party as last time

Place still awesome, better than it was 2 years ago if that's possible, immaculately presented, incredibly clean and welcoming

The views simply have to be the best in the area - right don the valley to the sea at Warrenpoint

Cant recommend the place highly enough

“The best holiday rental in the North of Ireland!”
Reviewed 6 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Simply wonderful! The location is stunning. The view down Kilbroney valley to Carlingford Lough has to be seen to be believed. A beautiful and wonderfully equipped property with delightful and always helpful owner (discretely) nearby. Simply cannot be faulted. I return every year.

“Extraordinary location, magnificent views, superb accomodation”

person found this review helpful

The drive in the dark was a trifle tricky but we got there in the end as the result of family members arriving before the rest of the party. As dawn broke the view is amazing down to the lough with the mountains in the background. The interior design of the property is stunning with an open plan kitchen, sitting and dining area before a wood burning stove. The quality of the finish is excellent having been masterminded and managed by the owner - perfect location, great property.
