The County Down region

Down is remarkable for its many low, beautifully cultivated hills. However, in south County Down, the rugged Mountains of Mourne, formed from stark granite, offer a striking contrast to this arable land. Here, Slieve Donard rises to a height of 848 metres. Slieve Croob tops another group of hills in the centre of County Down.

To the east, the Ards Peninsula forms a barrier between the sea and an almost land-locked Strangford Lough. With a history spanning 7000 years, County Down has many important archaeological sites and ancient monuments, together with attractions for the sportsman, the climber and the walker.

Strangford

Downpatrick is the administrative centre of Historic Down District, and with a population of 10,113 has the highest populous in Down. There are many sites to visit in this town and its surrounds. Downpatrick is home to Down County Museum, Down Cathedral and adjacent to is the final resting place of Saint Patrick, along with Saints Brigid and Colmcille. Downpatrick Race Course is home of the Ulster National, and plays host to a series of meetings throughout the year.

I stayed at Slievemoyle Cottages with a group of friends in late May 2014. The cottages were easy to find from the main road from Downpatrick to Strangford. Greer and Maureen could not have been more … More

"Lovely and cosy accommodation, friendly owners and beautiful surroundings"

Twelve of us (6 adults, 4 kids and 2 babies) had great time staying in two of the cottages. The cottages have been beautifully renovated in a way that retains the character of the original buildings. We felt very welcomed with a fire ready to light in the wood burner and a basket of local jam, wheaten bread, milk and butter. Maureen and Greer were really helpful in the many emails we exchanged running up to our stay and Maureen couldn't have been be any more helpful on our arrival. Our kids had a fantastic time roaming the surrounding fields and being accompanied at all times by the Greer's lovely dog Max. We had plenty to do, even in wet weather, as the cottages are within easy driving distance to all sorts of places and attractions such Newcastle, the Mourne mountains, Murlough Beach, Tullymore Forest Park, Castle Espie and a short ferry journey as foot passengers to Portaferry brought us to the aquarium. I would thoroughly recommend and will most certainly be back!

Thank you so much for your lovely review! It was great to have you stay and we love to hear that guests have enjoyed themselves. We and Max are looking forward to seeing you again in the near future! Kind regards, Maureen and Greer Lowe
