“Perfect!”
Reviewed December 13, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

We loved the this modern, yet homely and well appointed cottage. It had all the mod cons, but still had a cosy country feel. The views over the County Down coast and over the Irish Sea were great, with a fantastic view of the sunrise. We'd definitely recommend this place for a short break or holiday.

“A gem in the Mournes”
Reviewed December 9, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Just back from our third visit to the cottages. You feel at home from the very minute you arrive, in fact, I wish my home was as beautiful as the cottages are. They are the perfect tranquil family retreat, even for those of us blessed with teenage daughters where wifi is a must everywhere. Whether golfing, walking, fishing or just getting away from the crowd, I can think of no better place. The cottages are finished to the highest possible standard. Myrtle and John have thought of everything, even down to the scones/tray bakes/eggs on arrival. Looking for dates in 2017 when we can get back again.

“Peace and Tranquility in Beautiful Location”
Reviewed November 2, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Home from home. This was our fourth visit and hopefully won't be our last. These cottages have it all and Myrtle has thought of everything - right down to the welcome pack. Lots of walks in the area be it mountains or beaches. If you book a stay here you will definitely not be disappointed

“Absolutely Brilliant”
Reviewed October 8, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

My husband, 3 month old son and I have just returned from a week's stay at Moolieve cottage. We had the most relaxing stay. We had booked this cottage about 6 months ago knowing we wanted to stay close to home for our first family holiday. It did not disappoint.

Correspondence with Myrtle was excellent - she was very easy to book with and was easily contactable by phone / email during our stay. She went out of her way to welcome us when we arrived and see us off again, even providing yummy homemade scones. These little touches make all the difference.

The cottage was immaculate and definitely lived up to its 4 star status. The underfloor heating and motion sensor lights etc were nice touches. The house had all the amenities you would need and was so comfortable.
We cooked in the cottage several nights without any bother. The cottage is one of 5 in little plot of land. It was so quiet. We were not disturbed at all!

There are plenty of things to do within walking / short driving distance e.g. Walks in silent valley, Mournes, Newcastle, Murlough Beach etc There are quite a few cafes and restaurants that are pretty decent in Newcastle itself (we also loved getting chips in Annalong one night!)

We are very excited to return to Moolieve one day. We had an awesome stay!

“Superb”
Reviewed July 22, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Our first stay at the Kribben Cottages. Moolieve was the best self-catering cottage we have stayed. As mentioned by other reviews the scenery from the cottage was amazing with the sea one side and the stunning Mourne Mountains the other. The cottage was very clean and well equipped. Myrtle the owner was very welcoming and helpful. Looking forward to our next visit. Would highly recommend the Kribben Cottages. Thank you for a wonderful time.

“Excellent standard of accommodation and location”
Reviewed June 8, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Accommodation couldn't be faulted it was clean and well equipped. The views from the cottages were all wonderful and it was nice to have a private seating area. The owner was helpful and welcoming. One small suggestion would be to have a washing line to dry clothes towels as the airer can fall over in the wind. Would definitely recommend.

“The Best Self Catering Accommodation I've Ever Stayed At”
Reviewed March 5, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

My wife and little one are just back from our first stay at Kribben Cottages and it will definitely not be the last! We are looking at dates to go back again already. I was told about the place by a friend so I contacted Myrtle and booked a few days at the beginning or March. We arrived and were greeted by Myrtle where she gave us a quick tour and even gave us some homemade scones and shortbread. We couldn't believe how well the cottage was finished. It has incredibly high spec and gives a great feeling of luxury in a traditional Irish cottage setting. We were even able to bring our dog and spent our days walking in the mountains and our evenings in front of the fire. It was a perfect to get away from it all. There were even push chair friendly walks accessible from the cottage itself.
I don't write reviews often, only when I think they are deserved and this is definitely one of those times. Hope to be back very soon!
