This is a 19th century Irish cottage which has been renovated in 2013 to offer old world atmosphere blended with 21st century comfort. The cottage is located on a quiet countryside road, about five miles from Newry in County Down (approx one hour thirty minutes from Dublin and Belfast airports) within easy reach of the famous Mourne Mountains and five minutes drive from the shores of Carlingford Lough. The house is surrounded by a little garden and an old orchard and offers self catering accommodation with a living room, a modern fitted kitchen, two bedrooms, (one ensuite with wheelchair access) and a bathroom. The living room has a comfortable sofa bed which extends the accommodation to up to six people. The house is designed for comfort with underfloor heating throughout and, for those wintry days when you need to see a real fire, you can snuggle up in front of a cosy wood burning stove in the living room.

The area is ideal for walking or cycling on country roads and the nearby town of Warrenpoint (5 minutes by car) offers a selection of excellent eating places.

Self catering bookings welcome with a minimum of two nights stay.

The Newry and Mourne region

Sally's Garden cottage nestles in an idyllic rural area of County Down, just one hour and ten minutes from Dublin or Belfast airports and within half an hour's drive from some of Ireland's most spectacular scenic locations including the famed Mountains of Mourne, The Cooley Peninsula, Carlingford Lough and Kilbroney Park in Rostrevor.

Day trips to the Giant's Causeway and New Grange are also well within reach and if you prefer to relax in the area, there's even a 5000 year old dolmen within sight of the front door!


For those who prefer to walk or cycle, the area offers a lacework of quiet country roads and lanes, ideal for rambling along to explore at your leisure.

And when you've had your look around the area, there's a guarantee of a snug warm house with under floor heating and a wood burning stove for those times when you need to see a real fire.

There is a family run supermarket to stock up on food supplies within a minute by car or five minutes walk and if shopping in a larger scale is your preference, then the city of Newry with two major shopping centres is just fifteen minutes drive away.

Mountain biking, golf, angling and water activities are all within a fifteen minute drive of Sally's Garden Cottage and the Burren area is laced with beautiful little roads for a walk or a longer ramble.

There is a children's playground within a five minutes walk in the Village Green and nearby you can delve into the 5000 year history of area in the Burren Heritage Centre.

In the Heritage Centre there are early evening traditional music sessions on Sundays and the South Down area is noted for some excellent music sessions and music festivals.


For occasions when you'd like to go out to eat, the nearby town of Warrenpoint (five minutes by car) offers a number of excellent restaurants.

The cottage is surrounded by a little garden, a patio with table and chairs for outdoor eating and an old orchard where you can relax under the apple trees within the shelter of a laurel hedge .

Sally's Garden Cottage offers self -catering accommodation with a living room, a modern fitted kitchen, two bedrooms, (one ensuite with wheelchair access) and a bathroom. There is also an airy hall with plenty of natural light where you can view the hills across the valley or even paint your masterpiece!

The living room has a comfortable sofa bed and a reclining two seater, specially tempting for the end of a long day when you can sit by the fire and literally put your feet up in County Down!
