Holiday Rental House
Ballard Cottage self catering accommodation is situated just a few miles west of Newry City. It nestles on the slopes of Slieve Gullion in an area of unspoilt natural beauty. A tranquil oasis and peaceful retreat from our stress filled world. This 19 century Irish Cottage has been tastefully restored. The exterior preserves many traditional features whilst the inside benefits from a 21st century makeover. It's an ideal place to relax and unwind. With its peaceful surroundings and breath-taking views it is the perfect place to take a vacation and explore this historic region. Slieve Gullion Adventure Park, Courtyard, Park Café and Forest Drive just 2 miles from the cottage. ...Ballard Cottage self catering accommodation is situated just a few miles west of Newry City.

Had a wonderful stay at Ballard Cottage. House is in a fab location, away from it all, literally. It is modern and very clean, yet homely, with plenty of charm. Ann is a wonderful host and made us feel very welcome. Highly recommend this cottage.
