Margaret’s Cottage

The 15th Century tower house of ‘Margaret’s Castle’ is actually attached to our cottage – hence its name. Walk through our ‘always-open’ black stable door and you’ll be forgiven for thinking you’ve fallen down the rabbit hole.


Ardglass has seven castles, including four medieval tower houses, more than any other town in Ireland, which reflects its importance as Ulster's busiest port in the 15th century.

We don’t do ordinary

We like to think we offer something a little extraordinary. For starters, our cottage is ‘upside down’. We’re perched on the side of the hill you see, and we believe that the best views are to be had the higher up you are.

So you can sit in our upstairs Drawing Room beside the roaring open fire and take in the stunning views for miles and miles and miles. And should you fancy a little company, our resident moggy Michael O’Shea, will happily, if somewhat lazily, oblige.
