About this location

The County Down region

County Down

The towns and villages of Mourne country are exciting destinations in their own right, also good bases for discovering the magic of the mountains. Popular resort Newcastle, where Slieve Donard really does 'sweep down to the sea' offers family fun, plus the bonus of mountains and championship golf (Royal County Down) on your doorstep.

Nearby Bryansford and Tollymore are centres for outdoor adventure - from the sublime to the extreme. There is pony-trekking, bouldering, canoeing, abseiling, hillwalking and even Ireland's only mountainboarding facility! Both Tollymore and Castlewellan have outstanding forest parks. Silent Valley, inland from restored harbour hamlet, Annalong, is another gem. Round the rocky coast, past busy fishing port Kilkeel, to Victorian Rostrevor. Its park begins as manicured lawns, but as you climb it becomes an arboretum, river walk and finally a mountain trail offering views across Carlingford Lough.

Blue Flag Cranfield Beach is also nearby.

Located in the Gap of the North, Newry is an excellent shopping city and the Newry and Mourne Museum is also well worth a visit.


Warrenpoint sits at the southern approach to the Mournes and at the point where the Clanrye River and Newry Canal open into Carlingford Lough. There was no town of Warrenpoint up until the beginning of the 19th century. The town was planned and built on a grid system by the landlords in Narrow Water.

The square is one of the largest in Ireland and saw many 'fair days' up until the late 1950s. The town came to prominence in the early 19th century, first as an outport for Newry, developing a thriving timber trade with North America and Canada.

By the mid 1800s Warrenpoint had grown to the 5th largest port in Ireland, in terms of imports and exports, including people. A plaque stands at the corner of the town dock to commemorate the thousands of emigrants who passed through the town in search of a better life.

All year round Warrenpoint offers well known restaurants providing a variety of foods to suit every taste and pocket.

Just outside Warrenpoint is Narrow Water Castle, an excellent example of a tower-house and bawn built about 1568 at the strategic point the Newry or Clanrye River meets Carlingford Lough.

The Magennis Coronation Stone or stone of destiny is located at Bridal Loanan in the town, preserved on its original site. Legend tells how the Magennis clan and all of the sub-clans, who owed allegiance to 'The Magennis', would fill the surrounding countryside while the chieftain of the clan was inaugurated by placing his foot and staff of pwer into slots in the stone.

Warrenpoint Park close to the centre of the town has a magnificent array of flowers and shrubs and the fine Edwardian bandstand is the focus for popular summer band concerts. Facilities include tennis courts and play area.

KIlbroney Forest Park which is situated in nearby Rostrevor (3 mile drive along the coast) is a splendid place to enjoy some outdoor, horse and carriage rides, and the drive or walk to the "Big Stone. and Hermits Viewpoint." The views are breathtaking.

"Our two-week first stay in 2013 guaranteed we would return for longer."

The high standard of amenities, comfort and décor, coupled with the warm hospitality of owners Norman & Rachel Purdy, ensures many repeat visits. Their knowledge of the Mourne area and history, tourist attractions, restaurants, shopping, as well as of "hidden gems", enriches and enhances the experience of guests. Not even the unusual amount of rain this year could dampen our enthusiasm. Perhaps we can encapsulate it best by wishing we could have stayed six months!

"Wonderful cottage"

We loved every minute of our stay at Cedar Cottage! Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, and the owners, Rachel and Norman, were a delight to meet. Thank you for a wonderful stay in your cottage. Hope to be able to return one day. The welcome pack was very much appreciated as well. Only wish there were more than five stars as we would rate at least six!!

"Fantastic Holiday Cottage"

We had a relaxing family holiday in a pristine, top class holiday cottage. We could easily have stayed another week and certainly hope to return one day. The owners were helpful, friendly and thought of every little detail. The lavender shortbread was delicious.

"excellent cottage beautifully appointed"

Cottage was exemplary. Well appointed and clean with up-to-date white goods such as washing machine and fridge and an eye to some of the finer points such as the provision of a needle and thread. Everything was there that was needed for a comfortable and stress-free holiday. The location had a beautiful garden and had quick access to the promenade that overlooked Carlingford Lough. My family was impressed with the eye to detail and the cottage set the example for the rest of our travelling vacation in Ireland. Our compliments to Norman who was the ideal host and extremely helpful in all matters.

"Exceptionally well appointed, and pristine accomodation"

Friendly and extremely helpful owners, ensure that your stay at this cottage, will be a memorable one. The cottage meets the highest standard you might expect at 5 star hotels, and we have no problem recommending it.
If you are looking for accommodation in the South Down area, you need look no further.
Apart from the well appointed cottage, which will meet all your needs, the owners ensure you arrive to find local baked bread, with eggs, tea, coffee, and milk to hand.
Highly recommended.
