This is a real 'get away from it all' cottage with so much character. We had a wonderful 7 days here and were sorry when the time came for us to leave.
This was a great base for visiting family and exploring the area around Castlewellan, Newcastle, and Dundrum, and of course the Mournes, in a quiet location and with a fantastic view outside the front door. It would be a good choice for a couple wanting a retreat from it all, or for a small family like ours (2 parents, a teenager, and a toddler) if you don't mind a tight kitchen and a folding bed in the main room.
Stay here was great. Cottage was all I thought it would. The scenery was awesome. It's the perfect setting both for relaxation and also for getting out and about. Hosts, Cindy nd Leo could not have been any friendlier. I will definitely go back.
We found the cottage on the internet and wanted to book it immediately as we fell in love with it, it was better than the pictures the cottage was exactly what we wanted and we had a fabulous time and we are hopeful to stay at number 23 again.
My wife and I stayed here for a week last June (2016). I am from Castlewellan but my parents have now passed away and I came home for a week, from York, with our two wee dogs. It was just wonderful and this quaint wee cottage brought back so many happy memories from my childhood.
The area is a truly hidden gem of Ireland. There is so much beauty, history and things to do. If you're reading this then go for it! You won't regret it. Sorry Cindy that it has taken so long to write this review but you so deserve it.
Thanks for a wonderful service.
