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.

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.

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.

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.

About Josie Crozier

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 Josie Crozier chose Newcastle

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

A lovely place to be for our start to a Northern Ireland holiday .

  • 5 of 5

A sunny and very convenient location for our travels. Enjoyed the down of Dundrum, the views, restaurants and surrounding area for 5 days. A good choice for two traveling couples!

Excellent accommodation in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

We had never booked accommodation like this online before and really didn't know what to expect, but I have to say we were very impressed. We have an 18 month old and self catering was the best option for us plus we love being by the sea. A high chair had been left out and there was a travel cot, the owner also left some wine and goodies which we thought was a really nice touch. The place was clean and there were plenty of towels and bits and pieces in the kitchen and bathroom to use. We got lovely weather so got to sit on the patio, the views are amazing and you are 5 minute walk from some lovely restaurants and shops. We liked it so much we booked it again for July, would highly recommend.

Great location. Attractive and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Attractive apartment with a wonderful view. Clean and comfortable and well-equipped. Advance information was comprehensive and very helpful. Everything made for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

If I was being "picky" I would make the following observations:

>It would have been good to have had a few more TV channels - most people are used nowadays to at least the Freeview channels;

>A shelf in the en-suite shower would have been helpful;

>Up-to-date tourist leaflets are a must in holiday homes - I went to the Newcastle Information Centre which is only a few miles down the road and easily got a bundle of free 2018 info - hopefully this will help those who came after us.

But these are just meant to be helpful comments - overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would unreservedly recommend the apartment to others.

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Very nice apartment and lots of room. My shoe fell out of my suitcase when I closed it up and off the backside of the bed. I did not realize this until our next destination which was 4 hours away. I contacted Josie and she is going to mail to me. She is very sweet to do this. Thank you Josie.
