I was in the area mountain biking, and spent a very nice evening in a very comfortable room in Kiltariff. Catherine is an exceptional host, and you can very easily tell she cares very deeply about what she does. The house itself is beautiful and nothing was an issue. I was able to charge an electric car overnight, and also store my bike securely overnight. The breakfast was one of the best I’ve had in a guesthouse. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Kiltariff Hall to anyone. It’s also located in one of the most scenic areas of Nth Ireland. I will definitely be back for more biking, and will definitely be staying in Kiltariff.
Stayed two nights in this lovely house which is unfussy and full of character. The bedrooms are beautiful and with the most comfortable beds. We did the special offer which was excellent value and had a wonderful guided walk in Castlewellan Forest Park too. Catherine was an excellent host and nothing was too much trouble. We visited during Covid and was impressed with the levels of hygine and the cleanliness of every space - it was spotless which gave us the confidence to relax. Definitely worth a visit.
Their home is a beautiful Victoria building built i 1888 by their Great Grandfather. The house has all its original features, with beautiful woodwork throughout. Our bedroom was ensuite with a very comfortable bed and beautifully furnished. On arrival we were treated to a very enjoyable afternoon tea. For breakfast we had the full "Ulster Fry" from the extensive menu which kept us full all day. Dining room was amazing in keeping with rest of house. Evening meal was also available at extra cost but great value, and great quality locally sourced and home grown produce. We especially enjoyed the home grown raspberries, potatoes, and green vegetables. Part of our package included a guided tour. We opted for the Tour of Mullough Bay Nature Reserve. Shelagh's knowledge of birds, plants, and butterfly's was amazing and we finished off with a delicious picnic prepared by Catherine. There were other tours available but this would be hard to beat. Catharine looked after us in the house and coped very well with the Covid Virus regulations making us feel very safe. Great value, great food, great hosts, magic house…
Stayed here for 2 nights and we loved the place. It is a Beautiful country house retaining many original features. Catherine and Sheena were very warm and welcoming and gave us excellent advice on where to explore in South Down. The bedroom was lovely with satellite TV and quality tea & coffee making facilities. Gorgeous en-suite bathroom. Breakfast was fabulous and they catered for us vegans no problem. Served in the most wonderful dining room. I highly recommend this place and we will be returning on our next visit to Ireland.
Whether staying for a night, week or longer, you’re going to feel right at home. Catherine is the consummate host, welcoming you into her beautiful family manor. The rooms are well appointed, the grounds lovely and the breakfast plentiful and delicious. We selected Catherine’s for the location- close to an ancestral area we were exploring. We will return for the hospitality and comfort.
