the location was great overlooking the fishing harbour the house was spotless and everything you need was inside , great location if you are out and about co down and the mountains good places to eat , and if you like your fish and chips a great shop two mins away. I will return to harbour view that's for sure thanks gillan
The house has a great view over the harbour. We were also treated to snow which made the scene quite magical. We enjoyed runs along the Mourne coast road. The house was lovely and cosy. We Recommend it to anyone visiting that area of Northern Ireland.
Great location with fishing boats and seals in the harbour. Seafood restaurant just across the road very good. House had plenty of room and clean and tidy. Weather mixed but didn't make any difference still had great time. Thank you Gillian
This year has seen our third holiday stay in harbour view.
It is always clean,fresh and well kept.
The owner is from the local area and is very helpful.
Many good places close by and other neighbouring villages if you enjoy dineing out.
In general a lovley area with lots to do for adults and kids alike.
We always enjoy our stay here.
The house was brilliant everything there that we needed, beautiful setting, we will be back! Very reasonably priced as well.
Having read the last review on tripadvisor I almost didn't book. But I decided to take the reviews on an overall basis. I can report that I'm glad I did. Our stay at Harbour View was everything we had hoped for - comfortable, well equipped, homely and picturesque.
We stayed for two weeks and found the owners to be very helpful and considerate. On one occasion I asked about the location of fishing tackle shops nearby and no more than fifteen minutes later the owner turned up with rod and gear for me and my son as well as advice on where to try. There was also a minor issue with the heating which was resolved very swiftly.
The house itself is a few steps away from the working harbour as the name suggests. You can see the boats, seals and fishermen from the house. The village has a lovely award winning seafood restaurant just across the road from the house. There is also a chip shop a few doors up and a chemist and garage with a wee shop and off license. Nearby you can find the Portaferry Aquarium, Kearney Fishing Village owned by the National Trust. There are many beautiful beaches nearby also.
This house was much bigger than we expected and catered for our needs well. We found it spotlessly clean and well maintained. Would recommend without hesitation.
