We stayed here recently for one night for my cousins wedding and I cannot wait to go back again! It's in a perfect spot in the beautiful Mourne mountains, the beds were really cosy and the lady who runs it is an absolute delight! For her alone I can't wait to go back there! She was so welcoming and kind to us while we were there it really makes the place stand out in my mind (this is the first review I have ever taken the time to write!). My sister had thought breakfast was included in the price and so we all arrived downstairs, starving, hung over and late (she waited for us), to find out we had only toast and cereal. Maurade could obviously sense our dismay and proceeded to cook us a full breakfast, poached eggs fresh from the farm, everything homemade and delicious! Then after that she insisted we had hot cross buns and a pot of tea! I forgot a jumper and was cold so she gave me a cardigan to wear while I ate my breakfast! It reminded me of sitting in my granny's kitchen while she used to try to fry pancakes as quickly as we could eat them! I would definitely recommend people to stay here, I don't know how anyone could call the owner unfriendly! (Just read the bad review someone left) She is possibly the friendliest woman I've ever met! If it is, essentially a hostel then it is the cosiest most homely hostel I have ever stayed in! You can of course clearly see what it's like from the pictures provided. But I do hope, for whoever wrote this review, that this continues to be 'the worst experience of their life'!
