“best irish cottage”
Reviewed 1 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

My family & I stayed 4 nights,the information to reach the cottage & key collection was very clear & easy,the pictures/description of house are also matching.
The house is set in a rurual location overlooking Carlingford bay,the views are outstanding as is the house. Shops are nearby in the village of Omeath, these can be easily reached by walking or car.The towns of Newry & Dundalk are not too far as is the village of Carlingford.
As for the house it has everything you require,one extra bonus was sky tv,it had the movies & sports channels,this was good for the kids in the evening.
Having stayed at various holiday cottages this one was is the best,I can't wait to book up again.
On a final note,the owners are very helpful,all questions answered and very good communication,they left us to enjoy the house but still made themselves accessible.

“Great spot for a relaxing break with friends.”
Reviewed 16 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Myself and 7 friends stayed in the cottage for 3 nights in July, the house is absolutely beautiful with all the mod cons you could need. The best thing about the house was its stunning location, great views and a lovely secluded garden where we spent most of our time relaxing. Just a short drive from Carlingford town where we had a gorgeous meal in hte Kingfisher restaurant. Perfect for a relaxing girly getaway.

“Great house great views great location !”
Reviewed 15 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Just back from a 2 day stay in this gorgeous house! The views are exceptional and the house is fully equipped for everything you need. Would definitely recommend it!!! The owner is a pleasure to deal with and is very helpful. It was perfect for our group as all we wanted was a relaxing break away and with omeath located a few minutes away and it being 4km from carlingford it was ideal! Would most certainly go back again.
