There was 6 couples. The cottage was beautifully presented and Maura had left a beautiful welcome pack along with fresh flowers. The Cottage was beautifully clean and spacious. We had a bbq on the Friday night and there are menus of local restaurants and pubs in the hall. Plenty of games provided for wet days! Beautiful view of Carlingford Lough. Will defiantly stay again!!! Loved it.

“Stunning sea view and high quality accommodation”
Reviewed 30 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My daughter and I stayed with siblings and grandparents and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Warrenpoint. The house is beautifully furnished and well equipped, everything that you need for a self catering stay. Linen, towels and a welcome pack was provided which is ideal for self catering.

“A wee gem in Warrenpoint ”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Stayed here for a week with my good lady, 2 kids (1 toddler and 1 baby) and a few other family members. The cottage is situated on the seafront and is a very short walk from the town centre. The first thing you notice when entering the cottage is that the furniture, fixtures and fittings are of a very high standard. It's a beautiful place. Every room is spacious and well kitted out, especially the bedrooms. The gardens are lovely and there's even a garage you can use, although estate cars or bigger are gonna be a squeeze!

The positives of this house are too many to list. In fact, if you were looking for something to complain about, you'd be hard pushed. We found that the best bedrooms for the nippers were on the 2nd (top) floor. This made it a bit of a trek if we had to deal with them after they had gone to bed. That's a very personal thing though and the stairs were good exercise.

The view from the house, especially the master bedroom is absolutely fantastic. It looks right out over Carlingford Lough. The problem with being so close to the border though is that you pick up the Republic networks rather than the UK ones so calling can be expensive and 3/4 G is right out.

Maura, the owner, lives next door and is on hand if you have any problems, or want a good yarn!

Brilliant place. We will be back.

“Stayed here for 12 days for daughter' s marriage”
Reviewed 20 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Excellent location and large cottage .
The host Maura was very welcoming.
The appointments though could be done with more.
They had only one set of towels and bedsheets so it is inconvenient for a long stay, as the host said that to change the towels and sheets we would have to use the washing machine but the drier is a way bit out in a detached garage which with the Irish weather if it is raining, it is a hassle to get the laundry dry .
The vacuum cleaner us also not operational and we had hired a cleaning lady locally to help us keep the place clean and she also mentioned that the vacuum cleaner was not effective at all.
Wifi is very sketchy, but that was poor in other cottGes we stAyed in Warrenpoint too. So must be a local fault being close to the Irish border. The cottage is central to everything in Warrenpoint,.
I would definitely recommend the owner to invest in extra linen and towels. To rate this cottage to 5 stars, specially if you stY for a linger period of over a week.
Other than that the place is gorgeous, , views breathtaking, views, very comfortable rooms,, bedrooms are upstairs no bedrooms on main floor if you have an elderly person needing to climb stairs,

“Fabulous Birthday celebrations at Dolly's”
Reviewed 16 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Six very happy girls ( ladies} have just returned from this wonderful house, Maura and her daughter Maya made us feel at home from the minute we arrived at this idyllic cottage overlooking Warrenpoint seafront ...the view is stunning and we where blessed with beautiful sunny weather... The cottage is exceptional and the finish to detail is a true reflection to the friendship that Maura had with its previous owner Dolly! from the fresh flowers, the scent of which filled the whole down stairs to the very generously filled welcome basket in the kitchen we couldn't have asked for better! Maura is a warm and friendly host and made sure we had everything that we needed and more... and as some of us girls are getting on a bit there was no rush for us to depart to early on our last day!
We all had an exceptional time, the 60th birthday celebrations went extremely well even if our singing might have filtered through the walls ! The girls want to say a massive thank-you to you Maura for your wonderful hospitality and kindness we will definitely be back very soon x....
