“Wished we'd booked a longer stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

Only stayed one night with husband and daughter as we were doing a tour of NI. Perfect location if you looking to tackle the Mournes. The upstairs decking/swing area is lovely to sit out and enjoy the fantastic view. James is a great host with many a story and provides a very hearty breakfast. So much so that we left reluctantly 2hrs later than planned after breakfast with new routes to take from his local knowledge. We did still time to get up and down Donard though.
My daughter enjoyed playing with the new family addition - kitten. If we go back to complete more of the Mournes will definitely stay here again.

Great hosts, great rooms and great food, it felt like coming home. Near the sea and 5 minutes to walk to the village. Here you can enjoy both nature and Irish pubs with great Music .We will return to this place :-)

My daughter and I stayed here for a one night stay.It is in a perfect location,for visiting this area.We had the bottom two rooms which were adjoining.They were clean and spacious although not ensuite,the bathroom was just down the corridor.The breakfast was great,there was a lovely fruit smoothie freshly made for each person on the table.The owner is very friendly and approachable.The views are fabulous,a check in is a must!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Oystercatcher. The room was spacious with modern decor. Our room also had the advantage of having it's own entrance from the side of the house. James, the owner, was warm and charming and made our stay memorable with his many stories. We would definitely recommend this B&B.

The area surrounding Carlingford Lough is spectacular, the Mountains of Mourne are magnificent and staying at The Oystercatcher is ideal. It is so conveniently situated for the scenic coastal route and provides the visitor with all that could be required and more. James is the most welcoming host and very entertaining. He will provide you with whatever you request and his breakfasts are the best. We spent several days exploring the area - Annalong, Kilkeel, Newcastle are all very well worth a visit and a short drive from The Oystercatcher. Strangford Lough is also spectcular and should be seen. Conversation with James and other guests is part of the experience and well worthwhile. We will go again as soon as we can.

GREAT. Warm welcome! Lovely house and rooms. We were looked after well. James is a very entertaining and outgoing person. We just enjoyed our early morning conversation. Hope it had been as much for him too. ELIANE + EDGAR, Switzerland
