“Perfect home from home”
Reviewed 19 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The Jays has everything that you could possibly think of need when you are away from home. Judy leaves fresh flowers, milk and Barnbrack for your arrival. The house is absolutely spotless and is a total joy to stay in. Less than a minute away from the beautiful Tollymore Forest park with all its wonderful walks and trails. Less than 10 minutes drive from the wonderful seaside town of Newcastle, the Jays is the perfect base to explore Newry and Mourne. There is a reason that this was our sixth year here.....a delightful home from home. Thanks again Judy!!!!

“Great house in a great location”

Myself, husband and children had a fantastic weekend in this lovely house. It is spotless, well maintained and equipped. We arrived on a wet stormy Friday night after a long drive from Cork to a warm welcome from Judy, the house was toasty, the fire set and lamps lit - the stress of the drive just melted away.
The weather brightened the following day and my husband enjoyed and endured the Mourne mountain run. Myself and kids had fun in the gorgeous Tollymore Park which is literally on the doorstep and looked spectacular with the autumn foliage. We had a lovely meal in Newcastle that evening and returned to our home away from home to enjoy the board games and dvds that were thoughtfully provided in the house. The house is very comfortable and would provide an ideal base to explore the rest of the county. Our only regret was that our stay was so short.

“Amazing house in a fantastic location”

This house is beautifully presented in a cul-de-sac right at the foot of the mourne mountains facing the exit from tollymore forest.

Myself my wife and our 3 children had a great week here. There is everything in the house that anyone could need for a break away.

Judy who owns the house was fantastic before and throughout our stay providing a gift basket on our arrival and additional items for our 3 year old including a stair guard and bed guard.

We will definately be back here again, anyone would be better pushed to find a holiday rental.
