I really enjoyed every aspect of my stay at the Enniskeen. My mountainside room had wonderful views of the mountains of Mourne. The room, with ensuite bathroom, was spotlessly clean and had all the comforts expected. Enjoyed the coffee and tea making facilities in the room too. A special highlight was the food. Really tasty, wholesome and unpretentious food. The quality of the meat dishes, in particular, was superb. The staff too were universally friendly and helpful with every query or request. You felt really valued, not just another guest.
The hotel itself is beautifully set in large private grounds and within a few minutes drive to Newcastle. I had much to occupy myself during my stay. Tullymore forest park is within a few minutes drive from the hotel. Golf, mountainbiking, pony trekking, hiking are just a few of the activities I discovered locally. A few days were spent relaxing around the hotel with a good book and a glass or two of wine! I hope to return again soon.
