The house has a great view over the harbour. We were also treated to snow which made the scene quite magical. We enjoyed runs along the Mourne coast road. The house was lovely and cosy. We Recommend it to anyone visiting that area of Northern Ireland.
Great location with fishing boats and seals in the harbour. Seafood restaurant just across the road very good. House had plenty of room and clean and tidy. Weather mixed but didn't make any difference still had great time. Thank you Gillian
This year has seen our third holiday stay in harbour view.
It is always clean,fresh and well kept.
The owner is from the local area and is very helpful.
Many good places close by and other neighbouring villages if you enjoy dineing out.
In general a lovley area with lots to do for adults and kids alike.
We always enjoy our stay here.
The house was brilliant everything there that we needed, beautiful setting, we will be back! Very reasonably priced as well.
Having read the last review on tripadvisor I almost didn't book. But I decided to take the reviews on an overall basis. I can report that I'm glad I did. Our stay at Harbour View was everything we had hoped for - comfortable, well equipped, homely and picturesque.
We stayed for two weeks and found the owners to be very helpful and considerate. On one occasion I asked about the location of fishing tackle shops nearby and no more than fifteen minutes later the owner turned up with rod and gear for me and my son as well as advice on where to try. There was also a minor issue with the heating which was resolved very swiftly.
The house itself is a few steps away from the working harbour as the name suggests. You can see the boats, seals and fishermen from the house. The village has a lovely award winning seafood restaurant just across the road from the house. There is also a chip shop a few doors up and a chemist and garage with a wee shop and off license. Nearby you can find the Portaferry Aquarium, Kearney Fishing Village owned by the National Trust. There are many beautiful beaches nearby also.
This house was much bigger than we expected and catered for our needs well. We found it spotlessly clean and well maintained. Would recommend without hesitation.
The location is great , parking outside front door.
Directly opposite front door is a working harbour. To the right is a sandy beach.
We stayed for 4 weeks mid December 2016 to mid January 2017.
The weather was very mild for winter ,which allowed for lovely walks around the harbour, beach and coastal pathway, which well lite at night.
Best sea food restaurant in northern ireland 2016, across the road from the house and local fish & chip shop about 2 mins, local grocery shop a couple of minutes further.
Gilliam ( the owner) was very welcoming and friendly,she lives locally and available if needed. Allowing for total privacy if required.
Harbour view had all the kitchen items etc and bedding, towels you could want
House is modern, very warm and we would recommend this holiday home to anyone.
House is very reasonably priced for the comfort and freedom required to fully have a home from home holiday.
We would visit again and would recommend to friends.
