While planing a walking trip on the Newry Canal 3 years ago - we struck gold when we booked room No 5 in lovely GreyGables.Having stayed in everything from a Michelin Star Hotel to a tent in all varied parts of the globe - we know the real deal in an overnight and GreyGables with the utterly charming Moreen at the helm just cannot be outshone. Walk into the fabulously spacious purpose build house and instantly want to stay for longer than you planned.
The house is spotless with esquisite furnishings and the kitchen is an absolute pleasure to cook an evening meal in as everything in the house is top quality. There are no list of rules and regulations. You come and go as you please. Breakfast is always delightful experience as nothing is too much trouble for Moreen in making it so. She is an oracle on local knowledge and is entertaining and great company over a leisurely cuppa.
Since our first visit there we have looked for excuses to go visit again. We are just after coming back from our 4th visit as it is ideally situated to encapture a whole variety of activities and places to visit.
When the next adventure becons North we know exactly where we will be staying.
We would both wholeheartly recommend Moreen's lovely GreyGables as the only place to stay.
