Pros: It is reasonably priced and the proprietor, James Curran, is very affable.
Cons: More shelves in bath.
Location: Rostrevor is very scenic. The big stone near Kilbroney Park is interesting, but the road and trail leading to it are not well marked.
The Oystercatcher is a very small B & B. Just 3-4 guest rooms. It is almost like staying with friends or relatives.

Will be spectacular in summer

Pros: The host and the facility.
Cons: The grounds.
Location: Was there for a christening therefore no time to explore.
James the proprietor is an excellent host and Bernie can cook up a storm of a breakfast. The room was unclusterd yet had every thing. The bathroom was well equipped and will put many hotels to shame. The property has a view to die for. Will definitely return.

The best accommodation of this type I ever stayed in. The owners are very friendly and you couldn't wish for better hosts. If I am ever in that neck of the woods again I will go out of my way to go back. Excellent

We only decided to book and travel 18 hours before departure to watch the Ulster Juniors cross country qualifying event in Kilbroney Park.

Fabulous location!

We really enjoyed our stay at The Oystercatcher which was quirky and different. In a great location across the road from the Loch, our first floor twin room had a fabulous view looking out across the water towards the mountains near Carlingford. Very laid back atmosphere, so probably most suited to walkers/cyclists/artists/musicians/young outdoor types; if you are looking for a corporate hotel with marble and tiles everywhere, this is probably not for you, but if you want somewhere unique, different, comfortable and with superb breakfasts, then go for it!

Fantastic Host

Lovely location with fantastic views of Newry River and southern Ireland. Not to mention the edge of the Mourne mountains. B&B facilities as expected with a very filling breakfast. Wished we had booked more nights here. Will definitely visit again if back in Ireland. Owner quite a character.
