Our stay at Tullyquilly Cottage was marked by a simply perfect combination of rural retreat and warm welcome from the host, Danny, and his daughter Ruby Mae. We had to tear ourselves away from the cottage as there was so much to do there, from cooking on the solid Stanley range to experimenting with the musical instruments in the main room. Sitting out in the hot tub whilst the rain pattered on our shoulders was delightful. Each day we were privileged to enjoy vegetables and herbs cultivated in the garden and to eat beautiful fresh eggs. The cottage is in an excellent location a short drive away from the Mournes and the sea. I plan to go back before long. Thank you Danny and Ruby Mae!
we had a nice time at Daniel and ruby's cottage.
Danny was wonderfully welcoming. We felt at home immediately at Tullyquilly. It exceeded all expectations and really is a very special place. From feeding the birds and donkeys through to trampolining and wandering through the beautiful gardens, we all had a fantastic time. I haven't found anywhere else quite like it. A unique little hideaway.
Danny and his daughter Ruby Mae couldn't have been anymore welcoming as hosts. On arrival we were greeted by them both and given the grand tour of their incredibly picturesque organic farm. If like us you are looking for somewhere to escape & recharge you couldn't pick a better place in Tullyquilly Cottage. There is more to do than just recharge though, simple pleasures such as feeding and hanging out with the donkeys, rounding up the chickens and even feeding them if you wish, scenic walks, talking with the friendly locals in Rathfriland (it seems everyone knowns Danny), collecting the hens eggs, playing board games (there are lots) or one of the many musical instruments in the cottage (piano, banjo, guitar, trumpet, violin and cello). In short there is quite a lot to see and do that is just a short drive from Tullyquilly but our advice would be just stay put and soak it all up. By far our best Airbnb experience to date. Danny and Ruby Mae have set the bar high.
Daniel's cottage is a true rural treat! Our group of four adults spent a perfectly tranquil and fun long weekend here, feeding the chickens, playing the instruments and soaking in the fabulous hot tub. The cottage packs in tons of 18th century charm but has all of the modern conveniences you would want. The bed upstairs is very comfortable and by all accounts the sofa bed was too. The sweet country setting is only made sweeter by the flock of busy chickens stirring about in the greenery. We hope to return soon! Thank you Daniel for giving us such a warm welcome and the perfect setting for some great memories!
Danny was very quick to respond and thorough in his communication. We enjoyed our relaxing break at Tullyquilly very much. I can imagine how beautiful the grounds are in summer, but even in winter we enjoyed relaxing in the cottage, playing with the toys, playing on the swing and evenings in the hot tub.
We couldnt have asked for a better time. Danny was the most wonderful host and made us feel so welcome....plus a nice little surprise of a bottle of wine for my birthday stay was just so sweet.
The house was gorgeous, the surrounding scenery was breathtaking and the vibe all round was perfect..couldnt have asked for a better two day break...we lounged beside the fire, cooked on his wonderful range, drove up through the Mourne Mountains and then onto the cost for a long walk with the dogs...spent the mornings feeding the chickens and talking with them before a morning dip in the hottub...i'd go back in a (email hidden)anks daniel for such a wonderful stay!
Our experience at Tullyquilly cottage is one we won't forget. This is the perfect spot for a secluded weekend away. The cottage has everything you need and is kept warm an cosy by the fire. The highlight of our weekend was probably relaxing in the outdoor hot tub on a cold winter night, there's nowhere else you can experience this! Thanks again Danny for your hospitality, we hope to return soon.
I stayed at the charming cottage for a week in December with my partner. It was a perfectly remote and quiet getaway. The countryside was shockingly green even at that time of year. We spent most of our days by the fire. The town in a scenic half hour walk away where you can get essentials. We arrived by bus and taxi from Belfast and had no problem being there without a car.
The cottage was more spacious than I expected. The shower is deliciously hot with great water pressure. The kitchen has everything you need to make a great meal. We ate eggs from the chickens most mornings.
Danny was a warm and generous host. He called me up in the US before I departed and made sure a fire was going in time for our arrival. He left clear instructions on ever part of the house, including rich historical details on the origins of everything from the stove to the cottage beams. He drove us to the bus when we left, which made for an easy departure.
It was a rich experience all around. We' hope to come back and see the place in other seasons as well. Thanks so much, Danny!
We had a lovely time staying at Danny's cottage. Coming from Dublin we wanted a quiet and relaxing time and that's exactly what we got. Danny was very generous with anything he could offer - there was more then enough kitchen utensils, food, fire fuel etc. We really enjoyed the chickens, playing music and there's so much to see around Rathfriland - the coast, mountains, forests. Very much worth the visit and we hope to be back sometime.
Daniel and his beautiful daughter were perfect guests.. We cant speak highly enough about them and hope this is not the last time we have them to stay. Sad to say goodbye.
