100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Tollymore Gate Lodge, built in 1802 is tucked inside the Bryansford Gate of Tollymore Forest Park.

Recently fully refurbished with a well equipped kitchen, comfortable parlour complete with wood burning stove, two spacious bedrooms with king size beds and open fires.

Tollymore, previously the home of the Roden Family, lies amongst the northern foothills of the magnificent Mourne Mountains, long recognised as Northern Ireland’s best hillwalking destination.

The space
The gate lodge has a sheltered garden with a sunny aspect which looks out onto the Mournes. Step out through the garden gate into more than 1,500 acres of magnificent parkland ideal for walkers of every ability. Alternatively, the park can be your starting point for exploring the Mournes.

The Forest Park is one of the principle locations for the Game of Thrones HBO/SKY drama and GOT tour buses visit Tollymore daily. In strolling quietly through the wilder parts of the park you can encounter fallow deer, red squirrels, pine martens, magnificent red kites and birds of prey soaring overhead.

Belfast author, CS Lewis, a frequent visitor to the park was so taken by its magic that he used it as a model for his “through the wardrobe” fantasy land of Narnia. His seven book collection, The Chronicles of Narnia has to date sold more than 100 million copies in 47 languages.

Where you’ll be

County Down, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom

Bryansford is small quiet village 3miles/5km from the town of Newcastle where in the words of Percy Ffrench 'the Mountains of Mourne sweep to the sea'.
Newcastle is home to the world renowned Royal County Down Golf Course with it's two outstanding links courses. The Championship Course will be hosting the 116th Women's Amateur Championship from 11-15 June 2019 and in July competitors in The Open scheduled to take place Royal Portrush Golf Club will practice at RCD prior to the competition in Portrush.
Murlough Nature Reserve with its magnificent walks is 5 miles away. Stroll along the beach and return through the reserve to enjoy the flora, fauna and magnificent views of Slieve Donard and the Mourne Mountains. Ponies, cattle and rabbits can be seen grazing and if you're lucky you will hear (and possibly see) a cuckoo.
Tollymore National Outdoor Centre is 1 mile from the gate lodge or a 15 min stroll through the park. Here you can enjoy the Hot Rock Climbing Wall or enrol in Mountaineering, Rock Climbing or Canoeing Courses. Outdoors Activity Training Courses are also available.
Castlwellan Forest Park is 5 miles away. It is home to the world renowned Annesley Garden Arboretum and its 43( at the most recent count) Champion Trees including Northern Ireland's Tree of the Year 2018, the stunning multi stemmed Giant Redwood with it's amazing 19 trunks, a fabulous place for a walk anytime of year where you will always find something of interest to see. If you're lucky you will spot a red squirrel or two. Rumour has it there are quite a few reds in the Annesley Garden at present.
Seaforde's Tropical Butterfly House is also well worth a visit.
These are just samples of some of the fantastic things to do in our locality and what make it unique.
