Beautiful self catering accommodation situated in the heart of the countryside

We are delighted that there is light at the end of the lockdown tunnel and that we will be to be able to accept bookings for the self-catering accommodation later in the year when restrictions permit.


Our accommodation offers a homely comfortable atmosphere and looks out onto an apple orchard and if you go to the end of the garden path and look south you can see the Mourne Mountains.


Our Georgian house offers a quiet haven in the beautiful Co Armagh countryside. However, we are within easy travelling distance of the historic city of Armagh where there is lots to see – two Cathedrals, museums, courthouse and libraries.


The self contained apartment on the East wing comprises several bedrooms, bathroom and downstairs shower with wc (both with wonderful views of the orchard!)and a fully fitted kitchen, dining area and lounge.

Crannagael House, owned and occupied by Jane and John Nicholson, is nestled in the heart of the County Armagh countryside and is approximately 3 miles from M1 junction 13 and 5 miles from Portadown on the B28, Moy – Portadown Road.

It is a grade 2 listed Georgian house and is still owned by the same family that built it in the mid 18th century. It is surrounded by gardens, parkland and mature woodland, and the accommodation overlooks an apple orchard – a delight when the blossom is out in May!
