We stayed at Grove Fort in the summer and had such a nice trip we booked while we were there for a pre Christmas family visit.
The cottage is very clean, comfortable and spacious. Annette and Ivan are very welcoming (even providing home made scones on arrival) and encourage you to let them know if they can do anything to make your stay even better.
We intend to stay at least once and possibly more in 2019.
Merry Christmas Annette and Ivan and thank you for your kind hospitality.
This is our 2nd stay here and we just love it. Immaculately clean very cosy and annette and ivan are very friendly. We are comimg back soon. Highly reccommend. Thanks again X
We really enjoyed our weekend at Grove fort. The house was lovely and spacious with everything you need provided. Very friendly hosts too. We will be back!
During our two week vacation to Ireland, Northern Ireland, and Scotland we stayed in 5 different homes, and this one was definitely our best stay. We had a very specific purpose for visiting Dromara, to see the place where our ancestors were born. Meeting Annette and staying at Grove Fort means we have reason to return to Dromara. The photos do not do justice to how clean and comfortable this house is. We were a family of 6 (two grandparents, two parents, and two grandchildren) and we had plenty of room. We rarely needed to use the second bathroom, but it was nice to have it if we needed it.
My kids loved meeting the donkey, swinging on the swings, and bouncing on the trampoline. Annette was so responsive to our needs, supporting us in making local connections around our ancestry, providing extra clothespins, and even picking up a bouncy ball for my kids to play with. I couldn't have asked for a better stay.
We regret we never made it to the nearby Mourne Mountains, or the dolman nearby. We could easily have stayed a week, and I wish we had. I suspect we'll be back when our kids are older.
Good proximity to Mourne mountains and other natural amenities. Excellent value, especially off season. Owners live next door and could not have been more helpful.
Very much recommended
