Enniskeen Country House Hotel
Ranked #4 of 16 Hotels in Newcastle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 June 2011

The Enniskeen House Hotel is unspoilt jewel of a hotel with the sea on one side and the Mourne Mountains on the other. For friendliness, home comforts, good food and tranquillity the Enniskeen Hotel is second to none.

Having stayed there with my children when they were small, I am now retuning with a grown-up family and their children. Whatever their age, everyone loves this hotel and we really look forward to our next stay.

Two generations of my family have been staying at the Enniskeen Hotel on an irregular basis for more than 30 years and we have never been disappointed.

The family and staff could not be more helpful and friendly and we had a range of delicious meals from full dinner and high tea to bar snacks. The home-made wheaten bread is in a class of its own! We stayed in the turret room with views over the Mourne Mountains and the glittering sea. It was completely relaxing and bliss

The setting is stunning - Tollymore Forest Park is less than 10 mins away but the woodland which runs down to the Shimna river in the hotel grounds is enchanting, full of wild flowers along the tree-lined paths and perfect for a short walk and a gentle gradient for older family members .

I stayed at the Enniskeen Hotel this September and was bowled over by the freindly, helpful and excellent staff. The location was fantastic at the edge of the Mourne Mountains, the whole place was comfortable and homely. The food was well priced and of excellent quality. Even with a bit of a thick head from a slight overindulgence of Guinness I thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast as well. I will most certainly return.

We recently visited this hotel for four days to attend a family wedding.
We found the hotel warm and welcoming. A pleasure to be their guests.
The views from all the rooms were stunning. The food was prompt and tasty.
The staff were friendly and most helpful. Notheing was too much trouble for them.
We would certainly recommend this venue to our family and friends and we would definately stay there again.

stayed one night..views from hotel fabulous and grounds beautiful .hotel itself is old and worn..rooms need a total update,although very clean.The whole experience is a throw back to the eighties..even the menus. The food is expensive and is not adequate for the prices charged. ie...one well dried out salmon.,quarter of a tomatoe and several peas.£11.50..Potatoes or chips extra at £2.50 The breakfast is ok and included in the price of a stay but service is slow.
