“Lovely holiday home in view of the Mourne mountains”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2020

The Jays was spotlessly clean, well equipped throughout and has a nice view of the Mourne mountains from the first floor living room. Extra measures had been taken to ensure we felt comfortable staying away from home in the current Covid circumstances - those were greatly appreciated. Sorry not to be able to meet you in person Judy, but you were attentive by text and made sure we had all we needed to enjoy our stay. We hope to make a return visit soon!

Owner's reply: Thank you very much for your helpful review. At the Jays we are doing our best to ensure "we're good to go" by following tourism and government recommendations to guard against covid. I am so pleased that you felt comfortable staying in the house and would be most happy to welcome you back for a return visit.
