Callaghan’s cottage is a restored farmhouse dating from the mid 1800’s. It has been in the possession of a local farming family for over one hundred years and was restored in the late 1990's to provide NITB 3 star self-catering accommodation as part of the Mountains of Mourne Country Cottages project.
The cottage has been restored with care to maintain the character and key historical features such as sash windows, half doors and an open fireplace. The cottage is situated near the foot of the Mourne Mountains, down a series of country lanes, with views over the Mournes and surrounding countryside. Callaghan’s cottage is a short distance from the other cottages at Hanna’s Close.
The area which stretches between the Mourne Mountains and the Irish Sea is known as the Kingdom of Mourne and has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
It’s safe, quiet environment makes Callaghan’s a great place for children to explore and a great base for family holidays. It is ideally situated to enable you to take advantage of the wide range of activities offered in the local area. These include horse riding, walking, cycling, and a wide range of outdoor activities that can be accessed through three local outdoor centres. A number of beautiful clean, safe beaches are located nearby and there are also many family friendly restaurants and cafes in the area.
Three miles from Callaghan’s, at the mouth of the Kilkeel river lies the fishing port of Kilkeel, the main shopping and business centre of Mourne. The town of Newcastle is approximately a 30 minutes journey by car, as is the city of Newry.
