First of all don't walk to the town from the Country House. £3 taxi or half an Hour walk. Choose the first option. On arrival greeted by a very polite young man. Who helped us in whatever we needed. Rooms very clean and tidy as well as the whole of the house. A very relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. 2 Minute taxi to the main street on the coast where there was plenty of places to have food and drink. £65 per night was very reasonable as other places on the coast were far more expensive. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone not wishing to pay over the odds on one of the other hotels in the town. Also to note Very good Ulster Breakfast and hot water bottles in your bed for when you arrive home after your night out...which is a nice touch.

- Nestled in the heart of South Down, our 18th Century Country House provides an excellent base at the foot of the Mourne Mountains whilst still being within easy reach of Newcastle and the many activities it has to offer.

For the more adventurous, we offer a fantastic location to begin to explore the varied terrain around the area, with plenty of outdoor centres to help you on your way, whilst the luxurious seaweed baths and nearby seaside spas offer a less strenuous way to recharge your batteries.
