About this property
Tucked away in the town of Downpatrick, in County Down, Sliabh Amharc is a wonderful holiday home from which to explore the true delights of Northern Ireland. Sliabh Amharc offers a group of seven with a welcoming and well-presented home-from-home, whilst enjoying close proximity to an abundance of amenities and attractions. Park up in either of the two off-road parking spaces provided before unloading your bags and making your way inside this lovely dwelling to begin your staycation. A lengthy journey calls for some well-deserved rest, so upon entry, kick off your shoes in the hallway and make your way through to the spacious sitting room, where you'll find a high-quality leather suite gathered in front of the television, enticing you to put your feet up and unwind with a family-favourite. Move through the property to the kitchen, well-equipped with a good selection of appliances and stylishly-appointed with an elegant kitchen island, providing a lovely spot to share a bottle of wine as the designated chef whips up delectable meals to be enjoyed in the dining room, with seating for all of the group. As day draws to night, pour in the bubbles and prepare for bed with an indulgent soak in the tub, or if you'd prefer, make use of the spacious walk-in shower for a quick rinse before heading upstairs to rest your head. Settled on the first floor are four well-presented bedrooms, comprising two king-size rooms, a super-king-size with the added benefit of its very own en-suite bathroom, and an intimate single room, ideal for an escape away from the excitement. Thought to be the home of Saint Patrick, the town of Downpatrick is steeped in fascinating history waiting to be explored, including The Saint Patrick Centre, the landmark of Struell Wells and the Gothic structure of Down Cathedral, believed to be the burial site of the patron saint. Avid golfers will delight with a visit to St Patrick's Golf Club, whilst Downpatrick Racecourse offers the perfect excuse to get dressed up to the nines and try your luck on the horses! Refuel following a day of excitement with your choice of pub, restaurant, cafe or takeaway, or head to the local shop to pick up some last minute ingredients to rustle up a hearty meal from the comfort of your holiday home. Pack up your beach-going essentials and head to the glorious sands of Tyrella Beach, where you can spend lazy afternoons lounging amongst the sands with a good book in hand, or take to the waters and paddle the shores of the Irish Sea. Further inland, lose yourself amongst the hedged maze at Seaforde Gardens & Tropical Butterfly House, or discover the serene indoor jungle, home to a vibrant collection of free-flying butterflies ranging from Blue Morpho to the Scarlett Peacock and the Tree Nymph. Well placed for experiencing the delights of Northern Ireland, Sliabh Amharc is the perfect base for a memorable getaway.
