Mairead is a delight to meet and a wealth of knowledge about the area, she was very accommodating and welcoming .We had a comfortable stay in the room. It was nice to have the choice to have breakfast cooked for us or to make our own in the fully equipped communal kitchen/lounge. The scenery around the area is fantastic ....

Last month a group of 12 of us stayed at the lodge. The owner was so accomodating. She made each of us very comfortable and was not bothered by how many teenagers we had with us. She even made us homemade dessert one night which was delicious, i must say. The kitchen and lounge area are extremely cozy with a...

Thank you for this excellent review. It all helps to develop our community business. While it was a busy weekend for us, the weather was pleasant and I know you all enjoyed an evening by the barbeque and in the Mourne moonlight! Do visit us again and tell your friends.

We stayed here with our dog and it was amazing. Mairead is a wonderful host. Never had a host make us so at home. Every community needs a person like her. The dog loves being in the heart of the mountains. I will recommend this place to everyone I know.

It's hard to find accommodation that welcomes pets. The Mourne lodge welcomed us and our dog and we had a great time. Mairead and the staff were friendly and...

Sinead and I stumbled across the lodge late on a Saturday night, keen to find a bed for the night. We called Mairead and she was kind enough to come over and give us a room for the night.
