'NITB Self-Catering Premises of the Year 2002 - 2003 & 2004 - 2005'. Golfkeel the perfect ...
Dovedale Self Catering Cottage is ideal for the business and holiday traveller alike.
All of the detached cottages each circa 1,800 square feet over two storeys are set in their own private grounds and gardens, with secure on-site parking for 6 cars.
Located one mile from the town of Banbridge at 15 Ballykeel Road, Ballykeel, Banbridge Co Down the tranquil and peaceful surroundings offer spectacular panoramic views of the rolling countryside.
And the Mountains of Mourne, ensuring a stress-free, relaxing break where you can unwind, while still only twenty five minutes drive from the bustle of Belfast.
In 2000 under the guidance of owners Oonagh & John O'Neill, Golfkeel was sympathetically converted from barns dating back over 240 years.
Lovingly restored, great attention was paid to retaining the original stonework and the end result is two cottages with exceptional character and old world charm, both featuring many period items.
All furniture and fittings were especially chosen and designed to give a relaxed country feeling, with both cottages boasting extremely comfortable family sized accommodation.
The three double bedrooms in Dovedale, Oatfield and The Loft are all en-suite and are further complimented by traditional features such as pine floors, wood burning stoves and private furnished gardens, complete with patio and barbecue areas.
All units have been awarded 5 Star Status by the Northern Ireland Tourist Board the highest and most sought after accolade. Recent visitors from all around the world have experienced the charm Golfkeel has to offer, travelling from as far as North America, Australia, mainland Europe and the UK.
Dovedale Cottage & Oatfield Cottage are both wheelchair friendly with Category 1 Status in the National Accessible Scheme for wheelchair users and others with mobility problems.
This central location is an excellent base for exploring Northern Ireland combined with all the modern conveniences needed to make a comfortable base off the main Dublin / Belfast road.
For those who like to sit and relax a small Library of books is available to read and enjoy.
Parking is also available for six cars and the gardens cover over one third of a acre so there is plenty of room for the kids to play in safety and a large patio is located at the side of the house for the BBQ.
Small library available and golf clubs and fishing equipment available for hire on site. Bicycles available for hire. Electricity and oil included in price.
Also note 3 Cottages are located on this site so we can cater for up to 18 Adults at any one time plus small children.
Oonagh and John extend a warm welcome to all their visitors and endeavour to make visitors stays as comfortable and stress free as possible.
We look forward to meeting with you soon.
