Co. Down's Moira Guest House Rebranded As Ralph's Moira Following Revamp

Moira Guest House in the Co. Down town of Moira has been rebranded as Ralph's Moira following a six-figure investment and refurbishment by the team behind Lisnacurran Country House, with funding facilities provided by Ulster Bank.

"Bold" And "Eclectic"

Ralph's Moira co-owner Lynne McCabe stated, "The main feature of each room, which instantly demands our guests' attention as soon as they're introduced to the space, is the two-metre tall bespoke headboard. We wanted to work with some of the best local suppliers, so I collaborated with my design partner, Sarah Brankin from The House of Curtains, Moira, on the headboard designs and worked with Balmoral Furniture on their manufacturing.

"Colour was important consideration for us. The brief for Ralph's was to be bold, eclectic and reintroduce textures and vibrant patterns into the space for a sophisticated and unique experience.

"We wanted Ralph's to have impact and leave a lasting impression on our guests in terms of the quality of our product, both upon arrival and as a memory lasting beyond the duration of their stay."

Potential For Further Expansion

Ralph's Moira can accommodate up to 29 guests, and further investment has been earmarked to increase the number of guests it can host.


McCabe said, "We have an opportunity to convert the loft space into to further guest rooms, and there is also potential for future extension of the property."
