We stayed in the Bramley Apple cottage while visiting relatives in Northern Ireland. The cottage is a converted stable and has a definite charm to it. All the necessities are there, and the staff was very accommodating. We would recommend this place to anyone traveling this part of Ireland.

Called here for lunch. Excellent service and attention to detail. Nothing was a problem. Food excellent a little pricy but we'll worth it. You get what you pay for so I'd highly recommend a visit. We'll worth visiting pottery shop. Some excellent items for sale.

I called in around 3pm today with my mother, we had just seen the place by chance on our way home from the hospital. We hadn't booked but the place was relatively quite. The menu we were offered stated that afternoon tea was served from 3pm and as there was only really 2 types of sandwiches/desserts served around this time,...

We were at a wedding in the Ballydougan Pottery and we happened to stay over in one of their beautiful cottages. The food and service is fantastic and we can highly recommend this place as a homely alternative to any hotel.

Not quite sure whether my wife and I have stayed at Ballydougan 5 or 6 times, but we have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves every time. The welcome from Sean, Marie and all the Staff is always the same - very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We'll be back again in the Spring!

We stayed here for a very special occasion in July 2013 and were made to feel very welcome . Staff could not have been more attentive. Accommodation was quaint very clean and comfortable. The breakfast next morning was something else. Would thoroughly recommend.

We stayed here during August '13....we booked a 3 bedroom self catering cottage.

The furniture and furnishings were 'house clearance'....not 'shabby chic' just shabby!! 2. The bathroom was grubby with...
