The coastal path built on the old railway line is a pleasant route for walking and stretches for miles. Dundrum has an array of glorious coastal and nearby mountain walks.

This beach continues all the way to Newcastle where the new promenade built to great acclaim stretches the full length of the town.

Murlough Beach is great for children or for those who like to walk. You would find it hard to find a more beautiful view anywhere else on the Mourne coastal route.

Mary and Noel are great and very welcoming hosts. We were greeted by Noel who showed us around the apartment and advised us on local options for dinner. The apartment is very spacious, and while there was only two of us a baby, there is plenty of room for a big family with three large rooms and great kitchen! Will be back when the weather gets better!
The apartment was everything we hoped for - impeccable throughout and of course the stunning view of Dundrum Bay.
We had a fantastic weekend away with our young sons and we all loved staying in your lovely apartment! It has a lovely warm, tranquil feel about it and waking up to those views is something else! We look forward to returning in the future! Deborah & Jamie
We had a fabulous short break in Dundrum, the apartment was everything we could have hoped for and more. Mary and Noel were extremely welcoming and helpful with advice about what to see and do in the area. We will be back!
We were met by the owner who showed us around. The apartment was spacious and the decor and fittings were lovely. Everything we needed for a perfect stay was there. The beds were very comfortable and we ate breakfast on the balcony looking out over the water and listening to the water slapping against the boats....idyllic!
This apartment has everything....wonderful views over the Mountains of Mourne and the estuary with ever changing tides, birdlife and boat life, beautiful, welcoming décor and a great location. The owner has considered every detail in furnishing the apartment including a picnic basket, beach towel, games and books. The area is fascinating and the local eateries are all good or better. Dundrum Castle on a fine day offers more amazing views as does a drive through the Mountains and a visit to Tollymore Forest. Our whole holiday was first class and the apartment and its views will stay with us forever.
