Lovingly restored, great attention was paid to retaining the original stonework and the end result is three cottages with exceptional character and old world charm, both featuring many period items. All furniture and fittings were especially chosen and designed to give a relaxed country feeling, with both cottages boasting extremely comfortable family sized accommodation. The three double bedrooms in both Dovedale are all on suite and are further complimented by traditional features such as pine floors, wood burning stoves and private furnished gardens, complete with patio and barbecue areas. Recent visitors from all around the world have experienced the charm Golfkeel has to offer, travelling from as far as North America, Australia, mainland Europe and the UK. Dovedale Cottage is wheelchair friendly with Category 1 Status in the National Accessible Scheme for wheelchair users and others with mobility problems. This central location is an excellent base for exploring Northern Ireland combined with all the modern conveniences needed to make a comfortable base off the main Dublin / Belfast road. For those who like to sit and relax a small Library of books is available to read and enjoy.Parking is also available for six cars and the gardens cover over one third of a acre so there is plenty of room for the kids to play in safety and a large patio is located at the side of the house for the BBQ Oonagh and John extend a warm welcome to all their visitors and endeavour to make visitors stays as comfortable and stress free as possible. We look forward to meeting with you soon. More
