Stopped a few times just to reflect on the history of the place. Pity it's beside a busy dual carriage way. Not a lot of ground around it. I also reflected on the useless waste of life when soldiers were massacred in a bomb attack and an innocent man was subsequently shot in the panic when he came down a... More

This apartment is totally amazing,lush and very grand. On arrival the host,Ramona,gives you a very warm welcome and a quick run down on where everything is and how it all works;amenities,internet, games,tourist information etc. But as a guest one is immediately overwhelmed by the grandure and instantly feels regal as if they belong to the aristocracy...especially on the grounds of...

lovely venue, very picturesque. I was here for my friends wedding, beautiful ceremony, terrific day. Outside catering needed but great venue for big grand occasions. I'm told some of the hip locals also organise indie/ rock gigs here. perfect use for such a beautiful back drop. I should also advise that there are local legends of ghost sightings here. There...

Very nice grounds and a beautiful building. I've been many times over the years, however, the last time we went, we were asked to leave as the Castle is privately owned. There looked to be an event in the courtyard, so I'm assuming that was the real reason we were asked to leave.

We arrived to see the Wedding fayre. This was well planned and an enjoyable experience. The one thing that let it down was the accessibility. My mother, suffering from Leukaemia, found the amount of stairs difficult to traverse. The staff were friendly and helpful and very good craic. A fabulous place to visit and spend a few hours.

With the sun rising in the centre of the lough during December the Castle is a good subject to capture. Desmond Daly

A nice stop on way to Warrenpoint. Small picnic area. Interesting but not spectacular. Has bad memories of soldiers murdered during troubles. Still awaiting a bridge to cross to eire.

Took the family to see the Castle on a fine summers day. Legend has it that there is a tunnel leading from the keep to the castle!! We had a picnic in the grounds and the kids ran around. It is now a wedding venue and residential area. Worth a visit.

The apartment offered us the perfect winter break. With its open fire, Christmas tree, dining table and beautiful decor. The pictures are fab but what one experiences when walking into the property is priceless. We loved every minute of it and will definitely come back for another stay! Ramona, the manger of the property was so helpful and dealt with... More
