The room itself was perfect - warm and cosy with all the necessities. I got a lovely greeting on arrival but was surprised that I was the only person staying and that the place was not staffed at all. I did not feel safe staying in such an isolated building totally alone, and as a result did not sleep well.... More

Great location if you want to hike in the Mourne Mountains! The staff was not only very friendly but also provided us with tips for hiking tours. Both Mairead and her sister were extremely friendly and welcoming and made our stay unforgettable. We will definitely come back when we have the chance!

In Sept I had the pleasure of staying a night at Mourne Lodge Co Down, run by the amazing Mairead White MBE. My son and I found this country accommodation all that we needed, but the experience of watching this lady training and encouraging her young local workers (all students, I think) was simply superb! This stay really added to... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Mourne Lodge. The hostel is far lovelier than the word hostel implies. It really felt like a home away from home. It was clean, warm and well equipped. Mairead looked after us beautifully and we felt so spoilt. The hostel itself is spotless and well signposted with a local shop a quick walk... More

This is an excellent community run accommodation in the heart of the Mournes. Our large family group (20 of us ranging from 11 years to 79 years!) stayed one night and we were catered for very well. Mairead and her staff are warm and welcoming and very helpful. The bedrooms vary in size from twin and doubles to larger shared... More

Thank you for your kind comments and so glad you all enjoyed your stay with us. One of our rooms have an interconnecting door and we use that more often as a family room where children can be close to parents but not using the same bedroom. This works well most of the time. You enjoyed great weather which added... More

This is a well run hostel, the facilities are simple and basic, but everything is clean and comfortable. Above all it's friendly, it's like old-fashioned travelling used to be - everyone talks to each other as we meet briefly on our journeys.
