“Fantastic Holiday. Highly Recommend”
Reviewed September 17, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

I stayed here for ten days, this cottage has everything you need and more. Ann the owner couldnt be more helpful. Its got fantastic views and surroundings, a short drive from town. Its so cosy when you settle in, like a perfect little home away from home. Just perfect.

Have stayed here eight times already and have just booked another 10 days. The cottage has everything you need. Just bring yourself and maybe some food, Where the cottage is situated is really beautiful and there is a pathway opposite which takes you up to the top of Slieve Gullion in the beautiful ring of Gullion. It is very peaceful and you can loose yourself in the wonderful scenery. The cottage sleeps four people comfortably and has all amenities you will ever need. Ann and Patsy Hughes are lovely people and we hope we have made firm friends with them

“Breathtaking location, amazing cottage"”
Reviewed October 11, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Stayed at Ballard Cottage for just two nights to attend a family celebration in nearby Camlough but dearly wish we could have stayed longer. Just fifteen minutes out of Newry the cottage is in an idyllic location on the edge of Slieve Gullion surrounded by amazing views and just cows and sheep for company. The cottage itself is a beautiful old farm building with every ammenity that you could need - including an iron and ironing board! Ann, the Proprietor, had put the heating on beforehand so that it was toasty warm and cosy for our arrival. We would love to come back and do some of the amazing walks from right outside the door or just while away the days relaxing looking at the amazing view. Highly recommended!

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
