“Just Heaven”
Reviewed October 9, 2018 for a stay in September 2018

What can I say. A home from home. Fantastic location. Cozy intimate and atmospheric accommodation. Great walk way into carlingford. Just the idea location and accommodation for a totally relaxing girly weekend with friends. Sooo much work has gone into maintaining the character of the cottage. I always come home totally rejuvenated. Thank you soooo much Gerard

“All the comforts of home in a unique, beautiful setting.”

Old Essmore cottage is the perfect vacation rental. Its location is convenient to many attractions and the view across the street never gets old. The owner, Gerald, made us feel like old friends. He was on site when we arrived after a very long journey from the USA and greeted us with a table set with a beautiful breakfast and many necessary food items to get us started. We thoroughly enjoyed the extensive music selection as well as the very well equipped modern kitchen. Having wifi was a bonus! We have family in the area so when we return to Ireland, we hope to be able to stay in this wonderful cottage again.

“Old Essmore Cottage”
Reviewed January 31, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Stayed in Gerard & Maureens holiday home in Omeath from 27th-29th January 17, what an amazing home and brilliant location, 5 minute drive from Carlingford with so much to do.

The house was spotless clean and so cozy just like a home from home.

We can't wait for the summer to spend a week in this lovely house.

Thanks again to Gerard and Maureen for letting us stay in your home!!

Uploaded is a photo of the view from the house!

“Beautiful modern cottage with wonderful scenery”
Reviewed October 2, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Just back from a lovely long weekend stay in Old Essmore Cottage and I had to write a review as a thank you to Gerard and Maureen for allowing me to experience their stunning holiday home.
First of all, the cottage is in the perfect location. As it is just a short trip to both Newry and Carlingford, we were able to travel conveniently to shop for essentials using sterling and enjoy the great nightlife and beautiful restaurants that Carlingford has to offer. This, combined with the tranquil setting of the cottage, was perfect to be able to sightsee and relax. (The view of the river and lough in front of the Mourne mountains directly in front of the house is breathtaking!)
The facilities in the house were all modern and clean. The cooker was huge which was so useful to cook different foods at the same time. There was also a washing machine, tumble drier and iron etc, everything that we needed. The rooms were beautifully decorated and had an authentic Irish cottage feel.
We hope to come back to Old Essmore Cottage very soon, next time definitely for longer!
