About Peter Brannigan

This home is owned by a brother and sister that grew up in the South Down area and we have extensive family in and around the town of Newcastle.

Peter Brannigan purchased this bungalow in 1997

Why Peter Brannigan chose County Down

Our family are from the Newcastle area and this has been our family home since the 1990's. We grew up in Downpatrick, a historic town 14 miles from Newcastle. One of us lives locally and the other lives in the USA, visiting and staying in this home as often as is possible.

What makes this bungalow unique

This home is ideally situated for relaxed exploration, golf enthusiasts (Royal County Down, Ardglass, Downpatirck and Kilkeel Golf Courses) and those wishing to enjoy the stunning scenery and amenities available in the South Down area. The location is perfect for people of all ages since the walk to the center of town is totally flat and takes about 7 minutes.

It is also ideal for those with or without cars given the extensive bus system from the town and the wealth of amenities available within walking distance of the house.

Tollymore Forest park is about a mile away and is perfect for family picnics, hiking or relaxing with beautiful mountain views. Explore the Hermits Cave and the Stepping Stones across the river.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I would highly recommend this house, me and my friends stayed for a weekend break. As soon as I walked through the door the owner Joan welcomed me and showed me around the house. It was in brilliant condition, very cosy. Also she went through everything I needed to know. She also kindly left some refreshments. It was the lowest price I looked at and was definitely the best refurbished. It was brilliant to find that it was only a few minutes walk from Newcastle town and beach. I had an amazing time here and I will be back for sure. I would recommend this place for any breaks away or a family break. I had a ball.

Wonderful Newcastle Stay!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great time spending 3 nights in Newcastle. The property is exactly as described and Peter and Joan are wonderful hosts. Joan spent a good deal of time showing us around and provided a nice welcome package of goodies. Our family of 5 had more than enough room and we loved that the cottage was walking distance to the center of town. We went on a number of strolls around Newcastle and it was nice not having to get into the car to go to the market or a restaurant. Royal County Down was spectacular and is just a few minutes away. Tolleymore Forest Park was a big hit with our children. And we thoroughly enjoyed walking along the beach promenade. We'd highly recommend the cottage and we can't wait to come back again in the future.

Owner's Response: John,

It was a pleasure welcoming you and your family to our home.

I am glad that you were able to realize your goal of playing Royal County Down, the venue for next years Irish Open of course. As you correctly point out it is ideal for not having to use the car all the time, being so close to the main promenade.
We certainly would love to have both your family and golfing friends back for a future stay.

Your review is very much appreciated and hopefully it summarizes well what other families from the USA can expect when they stay in the house.

Peter and Joan

Lovely, comfortable holiday home

  • 5 out of 5
We had an excellent stay in this well equipped, spacious holiday home. We experienced a warm, friendly Irish welcome on arrival and found the house clean and comfortable. It was especially nice having a large conservatory to relax in.
There is a country park right on the doorstep which was great for jogging and leisurely strolls and my daughter and her partner were delighted that it had been used for filming scenes in Game of Thrones. Thanks for a lovely stay.
