This place seems to be one of a country chic houses magazine! It's extremely romantic and peaceful. It's owned by an old lovely couple. The breakfast is a homemade dream! We'll never forget our staying here.

Ourselves and another couple stayed overnight at the lodge during April '14 after participating in the "St.Patrick's Edurance ride" in Dwnptrk. On our arrival Liz & John were most welcoming, even kindly allowing us to fill their drive with our parked horseboxes and vehicles, followed by tea and yummy home made pavlova!! The rooms were lovely and clean and the... More

We stayed with Lis and John for the last week in their lovely home. Both are elderly and worked hard everyday to make you feel comfortable and at home. We loved every breakfast with so much variety and choice. The view every day was breath taking they live in a unique part of North Ireland with the statue of Saint... More

Found Liz's place about 6.30 at night when we were looking for somewhere to stay. We followed a sign off the main road and then up a long lane way. Liza opened us with open arms and had a wonderful room for us. She sent us down to the local Irish Pub for dinner which was also a step back... More

Our group of friends stayed two nights at Swan Lodge. We found our accommodations to be comfortable, attractive and sparkling clean. John and Liz love to cook and it shows in their delicious offerings for breakfast. It was a good base for touring Belfast, providing a quiet, restful place to be at the end of the day. It's one of...

We are two couples staying in the area to visit relatives and historic sites. Staying in one place makes sense so we opted for Swan Lodge. We remained there for 4 nights. If we want to enjoy Irish cuisine, this is the place. The rooms are comfortable and clean with all the amenities. Liz and John were perfect hosts. I... More

We stayed here in June 2013 after our grandaughters wedding and a two week tour of Northern Ireland. The first nights experience was enough for us to decide to stay three more nights. We agree entirely with the good reports of swan lodge and John and Liz. Everything and I mean everything you may need is provided in the bedrooms... More
