I booked all three cottages at Drumeenagh for my family to stay the night before my wedding at Bellingham Castle.
The cottages are ideal for location and facilities. Nice and cosy on an exceptionally cold winters night. Caroline couldn’t do enough for us during our stay and made us feel so welcome and we’ll looked after. She also put on a fine breakfast spread the following morning while we were getting ready for the wedding.
We had some bad luck with a car tyre when departing for the wedding and Caroline not only drove my parents to the wedding but also got the car fixed for us and ready to collect from her home the following day!
We can’t thank her enough for all her help and kindness.
I would recommend Drumeenagh to anyone visiting the area for whatever purpose as I know guests will receive a top service and excellent nights sleep.
It’s great to find somewhere that is clean, comfortable and looked after, Caroline and family were really helpful as I used one of the cottages as a base whilst working and traveled around quite a bit. Nice quiet beautiful location.
Beautiful location and cottages are amazing.. Great place for families & couples.. We will be back Caroline!
We arrived to the cottages and the owner had cake and biscuits there for our arrival. Tea and coffee, Milk and juice. Toys for kids. Dvds aswell. The place was very clean indeed. Wifi was fantastic. Really fast. Wonderfull stay here. Would really recommend. Clougherhead beach is a muzt to go too. FNtastic.
This was a great cottage with lots of room, great internet, all the kitchen equipment, room outside for kids (we didn't have any), and so peaceful and quiet.
With gorgeous views over the adjacent acres of land, the beautifully and lovingly restored Drummeenagh Cottages offer the perfect escape for a few days of calming and restorative rest and relaxation. Less than an hour from Dublin in one direction and just over an hour to Belfast in the other, Drummeenagh is also in a perfect location from which to explore this part of Ireland. We went for a drive on our first night to pick up some groceries for our stay (though Caroline had made sure the essentials – and some treats! – were already waiting for us) and happily stumbled upon the lovely seaside village of Blackrock within five minutes before driving a bit further to witness sunset over the ancient ruins of Roche Castle. On another evening, we enjoyed a cozy and quiet meal at The Glyde Inn pub on the River Glyde in the village of Annagassan, also a short drive away from the cottages. All of that and more are within easy access, provided you actually want to leave the cottages!
The fact that I have a family connection to the history to Drummeenagh (my grandfather was born in an upstairs bedroom of the main house in the early 1900’s) just makes an already special place all the more special for me. The home and cottages have long since left my family and are now in the loving and caring hands of Caroline and Paul, who make the perfect custodians and were beyond helpful in making sure our stay was a wonderful one, down to planting my mom and aunts’ favorite flowers outside of the cottage we stayed in. They were also happy to take the time to share their knowledge of the home’s history with us, and eager to hear what my mom and aunts knew about the history of Drummeenagh during their father’s time growing up in the main house.
Even if I didn’t have a past connection to Drummeenagh, I would without hesitation recommend the cottages as a truly beautiful and special place to stay. In fact, I am hoping to return with a group of friends in the near future!
We really like this fine cottage in this calm area of castlebellingham. It was a good Place to Start lot's of Trips to See some of the historical sigthseeingplaces arround. Caroline and Paul are very helpful and so friendly, that we Hope to meet them again sometime. If we Travel again to Ireland, we will visit again :)
