“Perfect place for a family holiday”
Reviewed December 20, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

Had a really lovely stay here, beautiful scenery. Kids loved the rabbits in the mornings. Really clean and well maintained inside the house feels like home with everything you need and more. Excellent shower comfy memory foam beds and a great owner who had the essentials in the fridge and the heat on to warm the house. Also was nice that the owner put up some Christmas decorations to make our stay even more memorable as we went to santa's cottage not far from it. Will definatly be back as we all really enjoyed it and didn't want to leave.

“A smashing place to stay!”
Reviewed October 27, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Only a short walk (uphill) from the centre of Rostrevor; Kilbroney Cottage is an ideal location for a stay in the Mourne area.

The Cottage itself has 3 Bedrooms; only 1 is a double. The only slight downside for those whose Children prefer a Bath; there isn't one! The Walk in Shower in the Bathroom is excellent though!

The Kitchen is well equipped, including a Dishwasher; with the Washing Machine in a small 'Utility Room'.

There are two very comfortable Sitting Rooms; one with a TV and DVD Player.

The rear of the Cottage has an outlook onto Fields; the Front to the start of The Mountains of Mourne.

The Owner, Aidan, made us very welcome and had supplied Tea / Coffee / Milk / Fresh Orange / Bread / Butter so that we had the means for Breakfast; as were arriving in the late Evening.

Aidan also, very thoughtfully, supplied a Bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, which was nicely Chilled; and very welcome after our journey!!

We, (my Wife, Brother in Law and I) had a very comfortable 4 Night stay!
