The Briers Country House

About

Nestled in the heart of South Down, our Eighteenth Century country house provides an excellent base at the foot of the Mourne Mountains whilst still being within easy reach of Newcastle and the many activities it has to offer. Just a 15 minute walk from the town, and less than an hour from the cities of Belfast, Newry and Lisburn, the Briers is in an ideal location for walkers, wedding guests and sightseers alike.

For the more adventurous, we offer a fantastic location to begin to explore the varied terrain around the area, with plenty of outdoor centres to help you on your way, whilst the luxurious seaweed baths and nearby seaside spas offer a less strenuous way to recharge your batteries. Combined with breath taking views, spacious and comfortable rooms and ever friendly service, it will feel like a home from home in no time.

In 2015 The Briers Country House were awarded a Silver Award in the Green Tourism Business Scheme.
