Murlough Country House Experiences

This is one of Irelands best examples of a grade 2 listed Georgian residence. Steeped in character and charm it is surrounded by the spectacular Murlough National Nature Reserve with the magnificent Mourne Mountains as a backdrop. It is a haven to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature as well as a wide range of outdoor activities on your doorstep.

Murlough Country House is the former Murlough Farm which sits on the shores of Dundrum inner bay. This beautiful period dwelling dates to the 1750’s being originally  built as the land agents home overseeing the Downshire estate. This was on the site of a Jacobean dwelling. The house is steeped in history having once being quarters for American officers running a secret wartime aerodrome at Murlough. The new owners all have connections with the village and a passion to support the local economy. They engaged local companies and trades to complete the restoration work. Murlough Country House is a unique, quirky, boutique residence for special events. It will provide much needed additional accommodation to the increasingly ‘in vogue’ Dundrum Village, with the award winning Dundrum Inn, the Buckshead and Mourne sea food Restaurants.
