Kieran et Ursula sont des hôtes très prévenants ! on se sent chez eux comme à la maison :)) le partage est total et sans compter ! je n'oublierai pas cette "route mystérieuse" demandez lui de vous la faire partager :)) merci encore ...
Pascal and his wife were lovely guests and Pascal must have Irish blood in him because he had some great stories to tell, I'm only sorry my French wasn't up to his English but he was very gracious did his best to help me when I didn't understand. Keep up with the flying but also keep your parachute handy! A bientot et bon vacances, slainte Kieran & Ursula
Ideally situated for walking trips in the Mountains of Mourne, Kieran and Ursula's home is an amazing place. Surrounded by quiet countryside and with amazing views (Irish weather permitting) of the nearby mountains.
We were welcomed into their home like members of the family and spent a delightful evening chatting to them over a welcoming coffee and toast.
They advised us on where to go locally and Ursula even led us to the start of a trek into the mountains the next day. (Beyond the call of duty).
The local town is small, but we were welcomed into the pub and spent a delightful evening with the locals.
I'd have no hesitation in recommending a stay here.
Unfortunately I was away when Berni and his wife Carmen were staying with us but Ursula said I would have enjoyed his company. He is a talented musician and full of 'Craic' and chat, sociable and friendly, Ursula said I would have enjoyed his company, Buen Camino en Irlanda de Norte to you both, Luego, Kieran & Ursula
Nous avons été super bien accueillis par Kirian et Ursula. Kirian parle un peu le français et nous a donné d'excellents conseils pour passer un bon séjour. Il nous a même emmenés voir les curiosités locales. La chambre est confortable et nous avions une salle de bain pour nous. Le petit déjeuner est copieux et varié. Excellente adresse chez des gens charmants et disponibles. Hélène et Philippe
Thanks Ursula and Kieran for their wellcome, kindness and disponibility.
We very really enjoyed the "magic road", the mountain walks are close and very beautiful.
We 'll still keep an excellent memory of that stay.

This was one of the best places we visited. Our hosts went out of their way to make us feel welcome and oriented us to the area. Such a beautiful part of the country; great walking.
Jim and his wife were lovely guests and joined in on a family celebration meal with wit and wisdom. They would be welcome back anytime, by the 'way' folks I'm not long back from finishing my last leg of the Camino, so Buen Camino to you both round Ireland and back home, Slainte, Kieran & Ursula
The two best hosts you could ask for. We honestly felt like we were staying with family. Two perfect rooms, separate bathroom and a great selection for breakfast. Couldnt recommend this place enough. We actually wanted an excuse to stay another night. Thanks for having us. :-)
What lovely girls, it was like having our own daughters in for the craic. They were back home for a wedding and Ursula reckoned they looked lovely heading out. I missed them going and we hope they had a great day at the wedding, there's a saying that 'the going to a wedding is the makings of another' , all the very best to you lovely young ladies, xox Kieran & Ursula
My husband and I started an important family visit to Ireland with a short 3-day walking holiday in the Mournes. We chose Kieran and Ursula's B&B because of the location and we were completely satisfied with the facilities. But Kieran and Ursula provided much more than a comfortable bed and delicious breakfast. We were warmly welcomed, and given a wealth of information about local walks and places of interest - Kieran even took us on a "magical" tour. On our next visit, to the Mournes, there is no doubt we would like to stay with this wonderful family again! Thank you, Kieran and Ursula and all the family.
