We recently stayed at Crannagael House while competing in the Tour of Ulster bike race and we can't speak highly enough of facilities or the hosts. Jane & John couldn't do enough to help us and make us feel welcome. From topping up the wood burner each day, to providing fresh produce from the grounds, to accommodating us with bike wash equipment and storage areas they did it all and more!!
Couldn't recommend the place highly enough - and to other keen cyclists it really makes a great base for cycling weekends and the like.
Thanks again Jane & John!
I've no doubt we'll be back again soon.
We recently stayed here for two nights and had a lovely time. The hosts Jane and John are warm and welcoming. It was especially good to arrive to a pre-ordered casserole for dinner served on warmed plates in the comfort of our accommodation, much easier than negotiating a restaurant with a two year old. The little touches like eggs from the farm's own hens for breakfast and a few chocolate ones, as it was Easter, added to the delight. Once the children were tucked up in their beds, made easier by the dark heavy curtains blocking out the sunlight, my husband and I could light the woodburning stove and relax with the rest of the wine we had at dinner. Jane had shown us round the garden on our arrival and we were made to feel very welcome and free to roam. We all enjoyed walking through the apple orchard, following the guinea fowl and meeting Rita the donkey. Cows and sheep were visiting and my children enjoyed looking at all the animals. Not least the two friendly dogs who were happily roaming their family home. On leaving, although a short trip, it feels we are leaving new friends not just accommodation.
On coming home we were less than an hour to the ferry terminal at Belfast, which made for a relaxed journey home.
An email arrived to let us know we forgot a blanket and Jane is going to arrange to send it back. Maybe it was a subconscious effort to make sure we had to return!
A delightful find. Gorgeous owners who went over and above to make us feel welcome - bread, marmalade and eggs provided for breakfast along with chocolate treats. The property is on a beautiful farm with furry and feathered friends galore. Such a pleasant escape. We'll definitely be back next time we're in the area. Thoroughly recommend.
The hosts have cleverly created a perfect ambience in this cosy attachment to a magnificent country house. The property is well presented, being tastefully furnished and warmed by an efficient log burner. The hosts are welcoming and always helpful without being intrusive. Nestling on the edge of a very old Bramlery Apple orchard within an attractive rural area this really is a great place to unwind, relax and re-charge one's battery. The location offers: Attractive walks, in particular around the area of Ardress House; a nearby golf course at Loughall; easy access to the City of Armagh; and, for those wishing to travel further afield, a short drive to the Motorway. .
We loved staying in the guest house with Jane and John. They were warm, welcoming and super friendly to a family of four they'd never met. Jane helped us with a tremendous hot tasty meal (after our long day of driving around), and the house was spacious, comfortable and with good wifi. The farm-fresh eggs for breakfast were a true treat. The vegetable gardens at the property are magnificent to walk around and see, and the donkey is as friendly as advertised. We loved staying here and will tell EVERYONE to find their place when traveling through Ireland moving forward.
