Wonderful bed and breakfast. Hosts, James and Jill couldn't be more welcoming, helpful and kind. Every whim catered for! Abundance of local knowledge!....Lots of humour and interesting stories! You eat the delicious and wholesome breakfast, you don't have to eat again til tomorrow!! The best B&B I have ever stayed in....and I have stayed in a good few! I could... More

Great little retreat in a beautiful part of the world. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and a little sing song over breakfast. Highly recommended! If you get the chance, ask the gaffer for one of his LPs - you'll not be disappointed! A+++

I encountered a wholly unexpected level of friendship and the experience of being welcomed into the family complemented a comfortable stay in a B&B set in a beautiful location facing the water - a memorable stay!

My partner and I were in Warrenpoint for business and decided to stay over and make a night of it rather than drive home. I found the oyster catcher online and was attracted by the great reviews. We both love Rostrevor and have spent a few nights there in the past. Its a very beatiful and friendly village. We arrived... More

I basically live in hotel's and bed and breakfasts between thursday and sunday, so, have gotten used to to the idea of them. they don't surprise me. The Oystercatcher surprised me. the views on the shore road were staggering, but on arrival at the house, I was led up to my enormous room, with an equally large bathroom by James... More

The reviews prompted me to book. On arrival we were taken to our room which was a converted garage with its own access through French doors or through the kitchen. The first thing we found was a blob of toothpaste in the toilet sink obviously from the previous occupants. You then start to look round. There was dust behind the... More

Dear Duncan I was disappointed and rather shocked to read your review. I did not respond sooner because Bernie my wee gem of a housekeeper / cook who is very well known locally alerted me to the review and as she was 'mortified' she needed some time before she came back and thought 'everybody would be laughing at her!'. As... More

Picturesque, relaxing and peaceful location, accompanied by beautiful weather. The Oystercatcher and its proprietor, James, added much to a very enjoyable weekend. Clean and welcoming, with a superb breakfast which meant lunch was not required. Not only was James a good cook, but his mix of interesting and quirky tales kept a smile on our faces. An enjoyable experience with... More

James is brilliant. He went over and above to make me comfortable. Great food, warm when I needed to be warm, cool fresh breeze from Carlingford Lough and windows with a view to the Seapatrick Ferry coming in from Heysham. Rostrevor is well positioned for Newcastle, The Mountains of Mourne, rural County Down, and the south of Ireland - all... More

We had a great weekend in Rostrevor and the hospitality in the Oystercatcher only added to the experience. Warm spacious comfortable room with its own entrance. Excellent host with a great sense of humour and remarkable musical talent. First class breakfast. Everything A1. Will definitely call back !. The CD was superb too !!
