Amazing scenery. Friendly village with a couple of good pubs. The Cuans Fish and Chips are warmly recommended. At the Alms House Philip had done all he could to accomadate us including the supply of wecoming staples such as bread and milk and an appreciated extra bed.
The Alms house is so much more than the beautiful pictures on trip advisor. Peaceful, historic, calm and comfortable are the words that come to mind. The house is fully stocked with everything you need. We enjoyed our morning tea in the sunroom with the soothing sound of sheep in the back yard. The Mourne mountains can be seen on the horizon. Castle Ward(across the road) allows a quiet walk at sunset or dawn (no crowds). It is handy to Downpatrick and the site of St. Patrick's grave. Strangford Loch is down the road and has a variety of wonderful pubs and history to discover. Belfast is an easy drive only an hour away.
Philip and Elaine are the most wonderful and helpful hosts that you can imagine.
The Alms House is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy a holiday.
