We are four sisters who wanted a trip to Northern Ireland for the first time to take in some sights of our ancestor.
The cottage was in a central location for Armagh (grand-mother married in the cathedral), the Mountains of Mourne, the Giant's Causeway and Causeway coastal drive and Belfast. This meant that we were never that far away from where we wanted to visit and managed to make the most of our 4 days here.
The cottage is well equipped, very clean and comfortable. Kathleen is a very thoughtful host and we appreciated the welcome pack on arrival.
Lough Neagh is just a stone's throw away and the local village a few miles away. A car is essential as the cottage is up a lane and quite a distance from amenities.
We stayed here for a trip over to the Cookstown 100 and Kathleen and her husband couldn't have been more welcoming. The cottage was fab, private and quiet with a lovely walk on the doorstep. There were freshly baked scones with butter and jam waiting for us on arrival and fresh farm eggs and bacon. The cottage was spotless and the old mistress stove was well cool. Great value for money and well delighted with our stay, highly recommended! Superb people.
Lovely two week stay in a very comfortable cottage in a great location , we were within an hour from all the tourist attractions. Kathleen gave us a really warm welcome and the welcome pack was amazing.
Probably the most tranquil place that we've ever been. Lovely location with a cottage that had everything you would expect plus more thanks to the kindness and generosity of Kathleen (the owner) and her family.
We used the cottage as a base to explore and revisit other places in Ireland such as the Giants Causeway, Belfast and Newgrange.
Thoroughly recommend the cottage and would certainly use it again if we holidayed in the area again.

Upon arrival we were greeted by Kathleen the owner who showed us quickly around the cottage facilities, and explained the various walks around the cottage and down to the lough.
We found the cottage very comfortable and warm, the quiet location and surrounding land meant the children could run around all day without us having to worry about traffic. There is also quite a selection of books and games to keep them entertained in the evening.
The welcome pack was indeed very welcome as it meant we didn't have to race out shopping straight away, and we could explore the surrounding countryside and nearby towns.
Given its location we found it a perfect place to explore the North Coast, Derry and other attractions such as the Ulster American Folk Park.
We will definitely return.
