Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Newcastle - Waterside apartment Dundrum

Luxury 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom waterside apartment with bay and mountain views

This luxury 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom ground floor apartment enjoys fabulous views across Dundrum Bay to the majestic Mourne Mountains. Located right at the water's edge, you can enjoy the beautiful views from the bright and spacious open plan kitchen, dining and living area. These vistas change hourly with the movement of the tides and the changing light, and must be one of the most impressive views in Ireland; at times they are spectacular, especially in the evenings. The apartment benefits from a private patio and pretty garden accessed from the living room through double patio doors. The master bedroom also looks out on to the beautiful bay and impressive mountains while the guest bedroom enjoys delightful private garden views looking out to the bay beyond. The apartment is well equipped with everything you need to ensure a comfortable and relaxing stay with a parking space a few steps from the front door.

Things to do: Whether you are looking for a relaxing get away from it all holiday or an adventure filled holiday, this apartment is the perfect base. It offers a haven for wildlife enthusiasts, bird watchers, photographers, artists and those seeking a variety of outdoor pursuits. Dundrum is a pretty village only 2 minutes walk from the apartment which is set within a small, tasteful development on the South Down coastline. It offers several historical sites including a 13th century De Courcy castle and the bay in which the SS Great Britain, designed by Brunei, was grounded for nearly a year in 1647. it also offers a multitude of nature walks within the beautiful Murlough Bay Nature Reserve as well as inside the castle ruins, all within easy walking distance. There is also a pretty local walk, part way along the old 18th and 19th century railway line (no longer in use) to Downpatrick. The village is well equipped and you can find everything here to meet your needs during your stay - two small supermarkets, a petrol station, pharmacy, off licence, coffee shops, hairdressers, beauty salons and excellent award-winning restaurants, the Bucks Head and the Mourne Seafood Bar.

In nearby Newcastle you can enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities including golf, hiking, cycling, fishing, mountain climbing, canoeing etc. Newcastle is home to the world class gold course, the Royal County Down, which recently hosted the Irish Open. The stunning Slieve Donard Hotel has a luxury spa perfect for a little pampering. Nearby Castlewellan has a beautiful castle, lake and gardens - perfect for walks, cycling and canoeing while the village of Seaforde offers a pretty Tropical Butterfly Farm and garden.

The historic town of Downpatrick with its cathedral and St Patrick's Information Centre is 10 minutes drive away. Just outside of Downpatrick you can visit the National Trust property of Castleward set on the shores of Strangford Lough. From there you can catch a ferry to Portaferry and drive around the Lough taking in the pretty and historic towns and villages of Strangford, Portaferry and Greyabbey. The recently refurbished National Trust property, Mount Stewart, with its beautiful lake and gardens is well worth a visit.

Within a half day's drive you can reach most of the tourist sites in Northern Ireland - Strangford Lough, Antrim Coast and Fermanagh lakes. The city of Belfast has lots to offer and is within 45 minutes drive while Dublin is 2 hours drive away.

About Darian Shotton

The owner of Water's Edge apartment in Dundrum, is a semi retired Physiotherapist & Acupuncturist who, 10 years ago, fell in love with the location, the view and the ever changing light and seasons, all of which can be seen from the living room and bedrooms of the apartment. She felt she simply had to buy it !

Darian was born and brought up in Northern Ireland, but has travelled and lived in many countries throughout the world including Japan, Borneo, North America, Holland and Norway, and she believes the setting within which her Dundrum apartment lies is one of the prettiest she has seen. That, together with the warmth and friendliness of the local people and all the many local activities and attractions, make it a delightful place to holiday in.

Darian is a keen photographer, and many of the photographs which decorate the apartment have been taken by her. Copies of these make a nice momento of your holiday, and many are available for sale either framed or mounted for easy travel. Please enquire if you are interested in a purchase.

Darian hopes that you will have many relaxing and enjoyable days here, and that you will, of course, treat the apartment with the same care as she has done, so that others may enjoy it too. And, having really enjoyed your stay, you can always book to return again - many people do, which is lovely !

Why Darian Shotton chose County Down

This was the "Show Apartment" in the development, so has a delightful setting.

What makes this apartment unique

Wonderful waterside situation with a pretty patio, from where the views of both the sea and the mountains change constantly.

A Jewel at the foot of the Mournes

  • 5 of 5

I must say this is the best VRBO at which we have ever had the pleasure of staying. Due to a mix-up in our booking order, we had some issues at the start of our stay; however, Darian graciously made up for it and made us more than whole. I must say I was very impressed with her generosity, efficiency and hospitality.

Our overall impression of the apartment was that it was very clean and comfortable, well maintained and in a very beautiful location looking out at Dundrum Bay and the Mourne Mountains in the background.

Dundrum is a village located approximately 3 miles from the seaside town of Newcastle and Royal County Down Golf Course, rated the best in the world by Golf Digest. It is approximately 50 minutes drive from Belfast, a wonderful city which has undergone a complete renaissance since the end of the "Troubles" in 1997. The village has a few very nice restaurants and there are many more in Newcastle. For those of you who have never been to the Mournes, they are truly one of the most majestic mountain ranges in all of the UK and Ireland.

I do not hesitate to recommend this apartment and owner to any and all, and will book this apartment again when I return.

COMO EN CASA

  • 5 of 5

LAS DUDAS QUE SIEMPRE SE TIENEN SOBRE SI LAS FOTOS SON FIELES A LA REALIDAD DEL LUGAR SE DISIPAN UNA VEZ SE CRUZA LA PUERTA, TODO ES COMO UNO SE LO PUEDE IMAGINAR, INCLUSO MEJOR, RECOMENDABLE 100%. MUY COMODAMENTE LOCALIZADA A ESCASOS METROS DEL SUPERMERCADO, UN AGRADABLE CAFÉ CON EXCELENTES DESAYUNOS Y UN PAR DE RESTAURANTES MAS. NO HAY PROBLEMAS DE APARCAMIENTO Y SE ENCUENTRA MUY BIEN COMUNICADA COMO PUNTO DE PARTIDA DE EXCURSONES, NOSOTROS YA ESTAMOS PLANEANDO VOLVER.
