We stayed at this boutique hotel on a short break to Northern Ireland.
On arrival we had the Mourne Honey Afternoon Tea on the balcony, with a great view of the Mourne Mountains. The afternoon tea was very good and included homemade sandwiches, scones, brack, cakes and desserts and a selection of teas.
That night we had dinner in the restaurant and were again very impressed. The set menu was reasonably priced and even included steak without a surcharge.
We both ordered the full ulster fry for breakfast which was excellent.
The next evening we ordered off the early dinner menu, and we both ordered the Ardglass Scampi after hearing good things. It lived up to its reputation.
There is a short walk down to the river (on the grounds of the hotel) and it is worth your while to venture down.
The room had great views of the mountains and was very spacious.
Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.
