This was our second stay at the fantastic Oystercatcher. It is a home from home and far more than a traditional BnB.Wonderful bed and breakfast. Hosts, James couldn't be more welcoming, helpful and kind. Every whim catered for! Abundance of local knowledge!....Lots of humour and interesting stories! You eat the delicious and wholesome breakfast, you don't have to eat again... More

Wonderful place! Beautiful cottage, the host was really welcoming and the rooms were a great size and really clean. Managed to get a room that sleeps 3 people which we had struggled with previously. Great spot right on the sea front. Friendly village and a 5 minute drive from the busier Warren Point. The lady that makes the breakfasts was... More

Very impressed with the location and the B&B, James is a great host with plenty of local knowledge and makes you feel very welcome and at home ! A very well furnished house with magnificent views of the coastline and mountains , I will be back again and have already recommended the Oystercatcher to my friends & family.

Just back from 3 nights in The Oystercatcher. Loved it here. I can understand why it is known as the best in Rostrevor. Lovely King size room with very large bathroom and private balcony with views of Carlingford Lough. Very clean, comfortable and homely. Excellent breakfasts and very friendly people. Thanks James and Bernie for your wonderful hospitality. Will definitely... More

I stayed at the oystercatcher for a night with my partner and mum. The B&B is on a lovely little square facing the beautiful Carlingford lough, backed by Kilbroney forest. The area is quiet, but less than 10 minutes walk take you into the centre of Rostrevor with its little pubs and lovely restaurants. The owners, James and Bernie are... More

The host, James, says he has opened his home as a B&B to meet interesting people. And it's the personal warmth and conversation that mark The Oystercatcher out as a place I'd recommend with a heart and a half. It's informal, relaxed, and extremely friendly. The setting is fabulous... The roof patio overlooking Carlingford Lough is perfect for sipping prosecco... More
