Stayed over the period of the Irish Open,had a really great time, Maureen was a superb host sorting taxis out for our trips to the course. Rooms were excellent and the breakfast is 1st class. If you needed anything staff would do anything to get it for you. I would recommend a stay here as I will be back again

We arrived gone 9pm, admittedly we didn't call ahead to say we would be arriving late, but didn't think it would be an issue. Upon arriving we were greeted in the most unpleasant way which made us feel like naughty children and like we had totally inconvenienced the owner. The lady owner went on and on that we hadn't provided... More

Thank you for your review of The Briers Country House B&B. Whilst we would have preferred to have known your ETA; the tour operator failed to pass along your email address to us. This would have allowed our expectations to have been managed. We encourage breakfast ordering the evening before to keep in line with The Green Tourism Board as... More

With a wedding to attend, my husband and I stayed one night at Briers. Our room was gorgeous, the bed was the most comfortable ever, the en-suite bathroom was amazing! Lovely choices for breakfast, and it set us up for the rest of the day. With the tranquility of the Mourne mountains, and spectacular views, it was the perfect Country... More

A very comfortable guest house, with pleasant hospitality, ideally located for access to The Mournes, Tolleymore, Newcastle and Castlewellan Country Park. We enjoyed an upgrade to one of the newly refurbished rooms which was comfortable, spacious and very well appointed. Breakfast is a grand affair, with a wide variety of options. In addition to the guest rooms, there is a... More

My husband booked a night in the Briers at the last minute and we were so glad he did. Warm welcome, beautifully decorated room with a supremely comfortable bed and a pristine ensuite.
