We stayed in the Briers and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a home from home for us. The rooms are spacious and very comfy, Myself husband and two boys were really pleased. Suzan and Brian were so welcoming,,we felt we,d known them a lifetime! The gardens surrounding the house are gorgeous, so tranquil, The location of the house is just opposite tullymore forest park, which is an ideal place to tire out two boys!
I honestly could not reccomend this place more. If you are looking for a nice break in beautiful surroundings, thats immaculately clean, friendly and a gutbusting home cooked breakfast, then this is the place for you!

Having visited the Briers four or five times now, I can truly say - it is superb!
The rooms are spotlessly clean - Suzan keeps everything totally immaculate.
The rooms are modern, well decorated and spacious. There is plenty of car parking space and the surrounding countryside ensures a quiet and peaceful stay.
Brian does an excellent Ulster Fry - try it for breakfast, and it will set you up for the day!

A lovely warm reception from Suzan and Brian. Extensive breakfast menu, food was excellent and brought with a warm smile. We really enjoyed our stay. Rooms were bright, large and very cosy with a great view of the Mourne mountains. The cottage is large and on its on grounds, and is also very private, lots of space to relax in, very quiet and tranquil. Beautiful gardens surrounding cottage. Perfect for a week end away from the big city. This cottage i feel is very special and is a must see!. Five minutes from the town centre. My partner and i hope to be back very soon!

The house is situated in a very peaceful, charming spot. Check-in times are from 4-6 which is a bit limiting. Suzan is very kind and helpful. The rooms were large and breakfast was very good. Nice lounge areas are available. You can't walk to town and it's about 6 pounds by cab. Suzan said it shouldn't cost that much but that's what we were charged. The town is very charming. We're really glad we stayed here. Very peaceful.
