“Lovely Cottage, Stunning Location, Excellent Stay”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We arrived from our drive from Dublin airport and got the keys as described from the key coded lock at the door.

We were so pleased that we had chosen an authentic rustic cottage, with real log fireplace in a cosy living room, a great fully equipped kitchen with even some basic essentials to get us going, and lovely rustic bedrooms with en-suites to all.

The cottage has wifi and digital tv and a good supply of CD's for the music system and a well stocked book case (if you get the time to read in between all the great walks you can go on from the cottage!).

We were lucky with the weather and enjoyed the decking area in the back garden. The views from the cottage are amazing, the Coolie mountains one side and the Salt water Marshes on the other.

We lit the prepared log fire one evening and sung irish ditties to really give us an irish themed holiday!

The cottage is well situated to Dundalk (about 10 min drive to centre) and very close to attractions such as The Fitzpatrick pub, Magic mountain and the Long Womans grave, all which we visited.

We were also welcomed heartily by the neighbour whom also looks after the linen and cleaning and she was helpful in directions to places, and to ask her if there were any problems. The cottage was very clean, had plenty of linen, iron and ironing boards, and all the basic equipment you'd need for a short rural stay.

We will be returning to McEvoy Cottage next year and spend longer to explore and look forward to it!

“Comfortable and enjoyable stay”
Reviewed 22 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed at McEvoy house in June 2016 while attending a family wedding at Ballymacscalon Hotel. We house was conveniently near the hotel (c. 5 mins drive) and also very near Dundalk town and Carlingford. The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed for a very enjoyable stay.

“Great location close to Dundalk - a real Irish cottage!”
Reviewed 8 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My husband and some friends of ours rented the cottage on a trip ro Dundalk for a wedding at Darver Castle. Accomodations are limited in the town so the cottage was perfect for a real taste of Ireland! We would stay again. Everything went smoothly with the rental. The place was in good condition.

Don't expect shampoo, conditioner, etc... need to bring that!!

Two couples enjoyed their relaxing and comfortable stay at the McEvoy Cottage. It truly is a beautiful spot and easy access to Dundalk and the Cooley Peninsula. The accommodations were great and they even had a grill! Just sitting in the cozy kitchen with the beautiful view of the Mountains of Mourne was delightful. I would say with humor, that guests should be asked not to feed the dogs, but I must admit I adored them!
