Noreen and Jean-Paul understand what matters - in Life and how to run a successful B&B! Warm welcome, good local advice, beautiful decor, comfortable bed, quality linen, peaceful location and a feast for breakfast! Their attention to detail is impressive but their enthusiasm and kindness are priceless!

Very nice house in a quiet, beautiful country location. Jean Paul was really kind and helpful and he made us feel very welcome. He gave us advice on where to have dinner and what to visit (Newcastle and the Mourne Mountains). Large, cosy and comfortable bedroom, great breakfast with plenty of choice. Warmly recommended.
