Katies Cottage is a delightful countryside cottage, set in the stunning surroundings of Killeavy, Northern Ireland.

With its magnificent views and flexible sleeping arrangements, this homey accommodation is the perfect location for groups of four or five searching for a relaxing retreat to the countryside.

Be welcomed into the charming hallway and take a seat on the pretty wooden bench as you take off your shoes and coats and make your way through to the airy sitting room, where you can admire the remarkable original brick fireplace with traditional woodburning stove whilst making yourself at home on the sofas and chatting to friends about your plans for the day as the TV flickers in the background.

Two tranquil bedrooms have been decorated with calming neutral tones and refreshing green decor, making these rooms the perfect place to rest your head at the end of an eventful day.

The super-king-size bedroom can be transformed into two single beds upon request, whilst the second of the bedrooms is home to three singles that can be arranged into a super-king-size bed along with one single upon request; both boast breath-taking views of Slieve Gullion and the historic Killeavy Old Churches.

Unwind in the traditional roll top bath as you soak up the suds and indulge in some you time.

As the day draws to a close, head on through to the pleasant kitchen and prepare a delicious home-cooked meal for the whole group to delight in around the dinner table, as you pop open the champagne and toast to the days to come.

Head out into the enclosed gravel garden and breath in the fresh countryside air as you take in the stunning scenery and appreciate the true beauty of Northern Ireland.

Enjoy a hike up Slieve Gullion to the viewing platform and visit the historic passage-tomb.

Hop in the car to the nearby city of Newry to see the imposing Cathedral and wander the galleries of Bagenal's Castle, the local museum.

For an exciting escape to Northern Ireland, stay at Katies Cottage.

About the location


Newcastle 21.1 miles; Belfast 38.5 miles

This Northern Ireland city is bustling with life and vibrancy, known as the ‘Gateway to the North’, it sits tight among the natural beauty of the towering Mourne Mountains and the Ring of Gullion AONB. It is a well-established shopper’s haven, with shopping centres such as The Quays and The Buttercrane, housing all the major stores and fine eateries you could ask for, while many independent stores offer a variety of unique souvenirs. Bagenal’s Castle boasts an interesting history comprising a 16th-century fortified tower and a 19th-century warehouse, now home to the Tourist Office and a museum, which are well worth a visit. Once you have explored the city centre to your hearts content, enjoy a scenic drive along the Mourne Coastal Route to find a sweeping range of grand peaks intertwined with many walking and cycling trails, one of the most beautiful corners of Northern Ireland. For Game of Thrones fans, Westeros comes to life in this part of the country, where the White Walkers once marched through the Haunted Forest or as the locals know it, Tollymore Forest Park shadowed by The Mournes. Further afield is the thriving city of Belfast with a number of attractions to discover, such as its Botanic Gardens, its hilltop castle, the grand City Hall building and St. George’s 19th-century Market, as well as the fascinating Titanic museum showcasing hands-on displays and interactive galleries. You are also just a stone’s throw away from the magical landscapes of Ireland’s Ancient East, home to a series of festivals, historic sites and mesmerising landscapes framed by the River Shannon and the Irish Sea. Find your escape in this fabulous city, for an experience you won’t forget in a hurry.
