About this location
The County Down region
County Down offers a perfect blend of history, culture, scenic attractions and plenty of things to do. From high wild mountain passes to rich green pastures, curving sandy beaches to picturesque harbours and villages, County Down has them all.
Sailor, golfer, walker, angler, rider, photographer or artist, you will find relaxation and pleasure in abundance. Whether you've packed the kids' buckets and spades or a pair of stout hiking boots, Co Down is guaranteed to provide a marvellous holiday.
Whether you just take long walks on the strand and absorb the stunning views of the Mourne Mountains or you schedule a new activity for every day, we think there is something for everyone in this beautiful area:
• Tyrella offers a fantastic safe sandy beach ideal for walkers, artists and for family play.
• The Burren is a terrific base for a golfing tour. There are five good – two, world renowned – courses within a 10 mile radius and a links gem on the Ards peninsula that you reach via the Strangford/Portaferry ferry. From the world famous Royal County Down and the stunning coastal scenery of Ardglass, to the local member clubs and pay-to-play courses, there are two constants – a warm welcome and sporting courses that you will want to tell everyone about.
• For epicureans, there are numerous restaurants, gastro pubs and cafes in the immediate area at Dundrum, Strangford and Killinchy offering great dining based on the excellent local produce.
• Have a day at the races in Downpatrick at the racecourse.
• Newcastle offers traditional seaside family fun, plus the bonus of the mountains of Mourne and championship golf (Royal County Down).
• Nearby Tollymore and Castlewellan have outstanding forest parks offering pony-trekking, bouldering, canoeing, abseiling, hillwalking and even Ireland's only mountainboarding facility!
• At Strangford you can take the ferry across the lough to Portaferry, to visit the aquarium and the Ards peninsular

"Great house, excellent location."
We stayed at the Burren for a weekend to celebrate my husband's birthday. The house is fantastic, plenty of room and with everything you could possibly need. It's only about ten miles from the mournes which is great for anyone interested in climbing. Dundrum and Downpatrick are also only a few miles away for restaurants and shops.
Great house close to the beach. Will definitely be back!
Thank you for taking the time to review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at The Burren.

"A fantastic house in a beautiful location."
Pleasant and efficient communication with the owners ensured we had a good feeling about the house before setting foot in it. When we arrived we weren't disappointed: a large, bright, well decorated house with stunning views of the mountains. A private pathway led down to the beach, which we had to ourselves. We didn't want to leave!
Thank you for your generous review - we hope to see you again soon

"Fabulous house, perfect location, loved it!!"
The house is beautiful and the beach being so close is great (even with the mucky walk as we were there after the rain). We were with a group of friends on the Friday night and then our families joined us on the Saturday, house and location were perfect for both, our kids loved it. The booking process and the flexibility of the owners was also great. The price may not be the lowest but the facilities and location are definitely worth it. We thoroughly recommend this property and hope to be back. Enjoy!!
Thank you for your generous review. You'll be glad to know that we have just upgraded the path to the beach so in future it will offer a smoother and cleaner walk to the beach after heavy rain!

"Lovely home in a Fantastic location"
We stayed at the Burren over Easter with children and extended family. The house really felt like a home. It was very well equipped and was very clean. It was a super base to sight-see around the Mournes and Co. Down. We hope to return next year and have already recommended it to friends.
Thank you very much for kind review - we are so glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you again soon.
