What our lovely guests have said

Wendy is a great host, we enjoyed very much our stay with family and friends, the kids had a lovely time too. Beautiful place, clean and with homely feeling. Highly recommend for the getaway.

VasilisaJune 2023

The house was extremely clean and well stocked for our every need. We were a group of 6 and it was very spacious for us to all fit comfortably. Rave reviews all round for the comfy beds and amazing shower! We found it to be a quiet and safe location while still being close to the town. Wendy and Manus were perfect hosts, very friendly and helpful, with smooth communication and easy check in / out. We would highly recommend!

LauraMay 2023

This was the most perfect and amazing place to stay. Loved it. House is beautiful and so close to Mourne Mountains. Thanks for everything! We will be back.

GráinneJuly 2023

Wendy couldn’t do enough. Food and milk etc waiting for us. As an Airbnb should be. Excellent and thank you.


Wendy is a great host. Her place is beautiful and equipped with everything we needed. Great communication at all times, she even checked in on us. Highly recommended.

ProkashJuly 2023

Wendy was a fantastic host - personable, super responsive and well prepared. She made us feel very welcome and presented us with an immaculately clean (and larger than expected from the photos) home, replete with helpful instruction binders, spare towels, complimentary drinks and freshly cut flowers from the garden. Coolmilish is comfortable, spacious and the mealtime views are simply to die for- I can’t recommend it highly enough, and we would certainly love to stay again in the future.


Wendy was a great host, very responsive and very flexible, her place is immaculate and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. If going back to the area would love to stay there again.


We had a great two nights in Newry. Wendy our host was very helpful and provided lots of information on places to eat and things to do around Newry. She met us on arrival and made us very welcome. The house was fabulous. It was.spotlessly clean and very spacious. The kitchen was very well equipped for us to cook for the 7 of us. There were games for the kids to make use of and the wi fi was good and fast which gave us parents some much needed peace at times!! I would definitely recommend Wendy as a host. Anyone that books her house will not be disappointed. Thank you Wendy!

Wendy was a great host, very quick to respond and very friendly. She made sure we were comfortable and at home and reached out to make sure my elderly Nan was comfortable. Place was spotlessly clean and very nice with everything you could want or need. Nice added touches like bread and milk and snacks and flowers, picked from the garden were lovely. Highly recommend and would love to stay again.

JamesJuly 2023

Wendy was very helpful, flexible with the check in and check out, the house very clean and as expectation. I would recommend 100%

AntoineJuly 2023

Lovely house and the most comfortable bed I’ve slept in for a long time. Wendy very kindly provided brea, milk, jam and drinks for when we arrived. One tiny teething problem; this is a new airbnb , but it was rectified very quickly. Would definitely stay here again.

DawnAugust 2023

Wendy’s place was the perfect location for our travels to Belfast, Dark Hedges & Kinbane Castle and then onto Dublin after checking out. This was just what we needed after our adventures. It was clean, peaceful, great showers and a good night’s rest. The yard is beautiful with flowers and hydrangeas plus real plants in the home & flowers. I felt at home. Wish we could have had more time but our goal was to see as much as possible of Ireland and eat Irish food in 12 days. Wendy left us snacks; cookies and milk were my favourite. She suggested several places to eat. She was wonderful. Thanks India
