We really enjoyed our time at this beautiful cottage. Very clean and well kept. Modern large kitchen. Cosy living room. Very comfortable beds, very fresh and clean. Plenty of towels for all but a bath mat would be fab for the shower room as doors don't quite close. Only 1 TV in the cottage isn't quite enough. We had gran parents, parents and gran kids so after busy days out it would have been nice for gran parents to watch news etc and kids their own programmes... maybe extra 1 in main bedroom or kitchen. Would have been nice for lawn to have been mowed too... overall a beautiful cottage, good value for money.
Having stayed in this cottage in the past the only good thing about it now is that was it was clean.
TV didn’t work, no answer to the numbers given except the ex housekeeper who tried to help us. The owners didn’t answer their phones or reply to text.
Barney's Cottage is nearer the village of Maghera than Dundrum, in a beautiful setting near the foot of the Mountains of Mourne. The cottage has a few others around it, including the 'big house' but apart from that you would not have known anyone else was there. The accommodation was extremely good - very warm, comfortable and good quality. It was more like a home from home. I loved the big kitchen, the facility to light a fire, the relaxing lounge, and 7 (!) beds, but spread apart, if you need some quiet time to yourself. There was a double with bathroom on the ground floor, which would be handy for anyone with an older or disabled member of the family. Only complaints, the overhead light and lamp in the kitchen had no bulbs in them, which made the room quite dull, and the inside door shelf on the fridge was broken, making it a bit awkward for storing bottles. There is a lovely view of the Mournes from the front, with a spacious garden to enjoy in better weather. Lots to do in Dundrum and Newcastle, even on a dismal day. Recommend the chippie in Dundrum and the wonderful Mourne Seafood Bar. Hope to be back!
