Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Fabulous base
Fabulous cottages. Spacious, clean, very well equipped and quiet. A perfect base for our holiday. The third time we have stayed, and its always perfect. Comfortable beds, spacious rooms and a huge sofa. Tea/coffee and milk provided was a lovely touch. Good shops locally for necessities, easy access to local attractions.

Herrliches Cottage
Wir waren im Cottage 1. Es ist gut und geschmackvoll ausgestattet und sehr sauber. Es ist ein guter Ausgangspunkt für Unternehmungen, egal ob Strand, Wanderungen, Stadtbesichtigungen, historische Stätten. Frau Cowling, die Vermieterin, hat auf jede Anfrage kurzfristig geantwortet. Für uns gab es keinen Grund zur Beanstandung, können wir uneingeschränkt empfehlen. - Alles Bestens!!!

Comfortable base
Good location for sightseeing. Nice outdoor space for good weather. Beach not too far away but roads too dangerous to walk on.

Phantastisch
Eine urgemütliche, gepflegte Ferienwohnug mit einer sehr aufmerksamen und wertschätzenden Vermieterin vor Ort, die uns jeden Extrawunsch innerhalb weniger Stunden erfüllt hat. Die Lage ist großartig: Strandnähe zum Entspannen und gleichzeitig sind Dublin und Belfast unter einer Stunde Fahrzeit unkompliziert erreichbar. Wir werden diese Unterkunft im Freundeskreis unbedingt weiterempfehlen!

A nice country house - perfect accomodation for traveling with family & friends
We booked this nice cottage to visit Dundalk. The host (Caroline) was fantastic. She equipped us with breakfast for the first day since we were arriving late in the evening before. Caroline provided great level of hospitality and all the time ensured to make us feel comfortable. The house was very well equipped - in particular the kitchen inventory provided everything you need. Despite the fact the location is outside of Dundalk (10 km drive) it was not a problem at all to book a taxi (5€ per person only!) to get us straight into Dundalk nightlife which we took advantage of. Only one recommendation for improvement would be to exchange the mattress in the bedroom upstairs to the right - it wasn't very back-friendly..... Other than that everything was great!

Just an awesome place to stay... Wonderful hostess
Just an amazing place to visit. Lots of tourist attractions to visit. Accommodation was central to all the tourist attractions. The accommodation was just the best!!! It was like home away from home, our hostess Caroline went above and beyond to make our stay an experience of a life time, nothing was too much trouble. Caroline was so easy to deal with considering this was done from Australia - prompt return of emails and any question answered straight away. I highly recommend you make Drummeenagh Cottages a must stay experience. Will definitely be back on my next visit. Well done Caroline - You're simply the BEST !!!

Beautiful
My family and I stayed at Drummeenagh Cottages for the week leading up to my wedding at Bellingham Castle. The cottages were so lovely and tastefully decorated. Caroline is a wonderful and very accommodating host! My mother was doing the flowers for our wedding and Caroline went out of her way to ensure there was space for her to work and a cool place to store the flowers. She also noticed one day that we were sitting outside on the lawn and quickly came out with a blanket for us to sit on. I would highly recommend staying here, whether you are attending a wedding nearby, or travelling the surrounding area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
