The cottage is spacious, spotless and very tastefully furnished. Myrtle couldn't have been more friendly and helpful with her tips about the area. We felt very much at home and look forward to our next visit.

“fabulous”
Reviewed 20 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We actually stayed in seefin cottage, but it is basically the same as this. Myrtle is so .friendly, nothing is a problem. Home-based goodies on arrival. We've stayed in a lot of holiday homes but this was one of the best. So well presented, comfortable and well equipped. Fantastic llocation and scenery as well. We'll definitely be back again

“Luxury Cottage in The Mournes”
Reviewed 14 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Just back from a fantastic family holiday in Rourke's Cottage. It was spotlessly clean and had every thing we needed and more. Gorgeous bathroom, constant hot water and well equipped kitchen. We had our elderly father with us and the downstairs bedroom with ensuite was perfect for him. Myrtle couldn't have been more helpful and friendly, going out of her to accommodate us with the arrangements. There are fantastic walks from the door and plenty of interesting places to visit. Will be back!

Many thanks for your great review. We were delighted to be able to accommodate your Dad. The large ground floor bedroom and en-suite is a big advantage and we are really pleased your Dad was happy and enjoyed his stay at Kribben Cottages. We enjoyed chatting to him and look forward to you all returning soon. Myrtle:)

Reviewed 4 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

These cottages were an absolute joy to stay in. The facilities in and around the cottages were well equipped, modern and very spacious. So sad that my stay is over. I would certainly think about coming back for another stupendous stay.

“Fantastic Holiday Cottage”
Reviewed 9 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had another fabulous stay in Kribben Cottages and I would highly recommend them as comfortable, modern, spotlessly clean and cozy holiday accomodation. The cottages are very well equipped with all the cooking facilities you could possibly need for a family. Bathrooms were a highlight for our family - lovely showers and bath!!
We were able to walk up the hill at the back of the house and on through the high mournes to Newcastle for cake and coffee which was an added bonus - so a great location for hill walkers.

Hi Guys thanks for the great review and of course for staying with us again. We are really lucky to be situated in the beautiful Mourne Mountains with so many great walks and hikes right on our doorstep. Maybe on your next visit you can climb Slieve Binnian, I'll supply the cake and coffee on your return! Regards Myrtle
