Kiltariff Hall Country House

Kiltariff Hall is a Victorian Country House on the outskirts of the small market town of Rathfriland. 

 Kiltariff Hall is a Victorian Country House on the outskirts of the small market town of Rathfriland. Built by our great-grandfather William Fegan in 1888, the house is set at the end of a short drive and is surrounded by mature oak, sycamore and pine trees. It is run by myself Catherine and my sister Shelagh and we grew up in Kiltariff when it was a working farm. We are both passionate and knowledgeable about the Mourne area and believe that providing good locally produced food is key to ensuring guests enjoy their stay.  I am passionate about using locally sourced produce and guests can enjoy homemade preserves, soft fruit and vegetables from the walled garden. 

Upstairs the bedrooms are comfortable with well-appointed en-suite bathrooms. The Red Kite Room has a bath and power rain shower and The Blue room has a shower as well as an extra-long king size bed. There are exquisite views of the Mourne Mountains from one side of the house. Guests are welcome to enjoy the mature garden and relax on the terrace.

A recent guest described Kiltariff as ” Off the beaten track, but close to everything “. As we are on the edge of the Mourne Mountains we can provide you with maps and directions for most of the walks. Wildlife enthusiasts will not be disappointed. Tours are available from RedKiteToursni as well as general bird watching/wildlife guided walks. The award winning Murlough National Nature Reserve and Blue Flag Beach is next to the picturesque seaside town of Newcastle, which inspired Percy French to write “The Mountains of Mourne,” and is 20 mins drive away. Many Game of Thrones® filming locations, such as Castle Ward, Inch Abbey and Tollymore Forest Park are close by. Tollymore,Castlewellan and Kilbroney Forest Parks also have world class bike trails and there are many golf courses nearby.

Dinner is available on request with 24 hours notice for a minimum of 2 people.

We operate the following Tourism NI Welcome Schemes – Cyclists, Golfers, Walkers, Mountain Bikers, Film Crew.
