My wife and I spent a night at the Briers. This BB does not live up to the Trip Advisor reviews. As a frequent traveller and member of Trip Advisor we felt that this BB was average at best.
I am sure the new owner, Maureen, is doing her best to update and make the guest house her own. She is a very pleasant person who is working hard to improve the BB. I hope in time this will come to happen as the setting is terrific.
The rooms and facilities at this B&B are adequate at best.
Grata location to the Mourns Mountains and the Tollymore Forest Park.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestled in the heart of South Down, our 18th Century Country House provides an excellent base at the foot of the Mourne Mountains whilst still being within easy reach of Newcastle and the many activities it has to offer. Just a 15 minute walk from the town, and less than an hour from the cities of Belfast, Newry and Lisburn, the Briers is in an ideal location for walkers, wedding guests and sight-seers alike. For the more adventurous, we offer a fantastic location to begin to explore the varied terrain around the area, with plenty of outdoor centres to help you on your way, whilst the luxurious seaweed baths and nearby seaside spas offer a less strenuous way to recharge your batteries. Combined with breath-taking views, spacious and comfortable rooms and ever-friendly service, it'll feel like a home from home in no time! ... more less
