“Excellent, first class cottage & service.”
Reviewed 4 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Stayed in Crannoge cottage with partner and two dogs - all of us were made welcome. Clean, comfortable, spacious, stylish accommodation. Surrounded by the spectacular Mournes with views to the sea. Wood stove pumps out heat and comfy bed; we slept well. Small supermarket/petrol station in Annalong which is just around the corner. Utility area plus sink - great for dog bowls.

Will be returning with friends and would highly recommend.

“First class cottages”
Reviewed 2 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

As mentioned in other reviews, the views from the cottages is fantastic. The quality and finish to the cottages superb. This was our first trip as a family. New born and dog plus a few friends. The trip was very relaxing, everything spotless. Great base for those wanting to go walking, we just wanted to relax and unwind in new surroundings. It worked.

Hoping to get booked in again for December and again in Easter. I couldn't fault the staff and the cottages.

“This is an excellent place to stay. 5 star,with 5 star treatment by owner”
Reviewed 5 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This is a beautiful and picturesque location in 5 star accommodation. The welcome by Myrtle and husband John is so warm and friendly. Also the scones and buns left in the cottage on arrival is a nice touch. Cottage is well and tastefully decorated with plenty of space both inside and outside the cottage. Have already recommended Kribben cottages to many friends and family and we will be back again soon. Thanks Jim,Lynda and Aaron Matchett.

“Perfect weekend escape.”
Reviewed 1 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Outstanding group of cottages at the foot of the Mournes. Perfect base for both adventure and relaxation...we walked to the top of Donard and on into newcastle from the cottage as well as enjoying the serenity of the spa in the slieve donard hotel. A warm welcome from the owners who couldn't do enough for us. Highly recommended... we will be back!

We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at Kribben Cottages. We have many beautiful walks from the Cottages, from a gentle stroll or for the more energetic a hike to the top of Donard. Well done on reaching the summit of Donard, maybe you'll try Binnan next time!! We loved having you stay with us and look forward to welcoming you back soon:)

Absolute Luxury from the electric gates to the wine glasses!
Set between the Mountains of Mourne and the Irish Sea Kribben Cottages are VERY deserving of their 4* status!
The bathrooms & showers are something really special and the decor throughout is both rustic and top class.
Even when it was blowing a gale outside (and is wasn't half!) The cottage was 'roasting' warm inside - we actually had to turn the underfloor heating off completely and just enjoyed the peat burning in the potbelly stove! Lush!
We were a LARGE group (20+) and took 4/5 cottages - to celebrate a special birthday. There were travellers from all over the world (Australia, NZ, NY, Germany & France) and the unanimous opinion were 'Kribben Cottages' are just fabulous!
The finer points: The Beds are MASSIVE - and VERY comfortable. The cottages are VERY well equiped (inc. a nice wee wheaten loaf there to welcome us!) Nice touch! They are 'spotlessly clean', and spacious inside. The 3 x 'cottages' have 2 bedrooms each and 2 x 'houses' have 3 bedrooms.
Funny, when reading the 'Visitors Books' EVERYONE said they would 'Definitely return to Kribben Cottages again'.... and the owners Myrtle & John just cannot do enough for every single person who stays there!
If you are looking for a VERY special retreat - but not a million miles from convenience shops (and The Harbour Bar - for lovely Guinness and SUPER food) then look no further!
5+++Stars all the way!
