Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a brilliant time in the apartment - the best 'Staycation' we have ever had.....the views from the apartment were just amazing....I could never tire of looking at the water.

The 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms was just perfect for a girly weekend as we each got our own bedrooms so didn't have to listen to anyone else snoring..!! and no queuing for the shower in the mornings or worry about clearing away all our toilitries for the next person waiting to use the bathroom - we all agreed it was just the perfect setup and can't wait to go back again in 2011

Irish Cape Cod getaway

  • 5 of 5

There is a reason this place has amazing reviews all five stars, they are all true. Five of us stayed here for a week when in town for a rowing competition and we all agree it was perfect. It is a delightful, very clean, apartment on the bay. Quiet and peaceful with views of all the wonderful things in Ireland- farms, water and the Mourne mountains. Three bedrooms all with comfortable beds and water views. Three large bathrooms. Lots of parking. Easy very short walk to a small grocery store (Spar) and local restaurants. A great working off point for being able to travel around and see Northern Ireland. Lots to outdoor activities to do right in the area- a short walk up hill to Dundrum castle, nature and beach walk at Murlough Nature Reservation and short drive to Mourne Mountains with all kinds of walks and hikes. Will definitely be returning.

A comfortable space for a family or a small group

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this property many times. It is an apartment building with a combination of renters and full time residents, in the town of Dundrum, overlooking a large lough and the Mourne Mountains, as well as the Balylkinler region across the lough. It is four miles from Newcastle, a summer resort appealing to couples and families, with a large beach and many ice cream parlors across the street. The area has mountains, many bays for finding local fish dinners, and easy access to Belfast and the Giants' Causeway. Dundrum itself has an excellent budget friendly seafood restaurant, and across the street a more upscale dinner restaurant with excellent cooking and fine wines. It is very close to the Saint Patrick trail which is a big attraction for many visitors.

Fantastic accommodation

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a fantastic setting and the photos are very accurate.

Property was spotless and Lisa did every thing she could to get us in to the property earlier.

Would certainly recommend this to anyone interested in a peaceful and fascinating setting. I am not a bird watched but found myself with the binoculars checking out the grey herons, oystercatchers and the delightful seal who came to entertain most evenings about 9pm.

The Seafood Bar was excellent, the Spar convenient (nice bread).

The National Trust carpark at Murlough was great and a pretty setting that allowed a short walk to the beach or a walk in to Dundrum or Newcastle or a relaxing picnic in the carpark area.

Tollymore Forest has always been a favourite of mine and it did not disappoint.

All in all a great place to stay.

Stunning apartment and facilities....

  • 5 of 5

Well worth a visit, the apartment was very clean, spacious and very well equipped. Ideally situated for all facilities, local small village which had two amazing restaurants. Local town only 5 minutes drive away for all groceries and general shopping. The views of Dundrum bay at dawn and dusk where stunning and it was a pleasure to stay there, if fact we could not fault the venue or the meet and greet that we received in any form. I would certainly highly recommend the apartment and would certainly return.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. We're delighted you enjoyed your stay - like you we just love the views of the bay and never grow tired of the ebb and flow of the tide. Look forward to welcoming you back again! Many thanks.

Roomy, comfortable with wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the Quays was ideal for the four of us, using the two large ensuite bedrooms with large double beds. There was space to spare in the large hallway the family bathroom and the kitchen/ diner, plus a balcony to contemplate the tidal waters and sea birds. Dundrum is a small but well appointed village with good restaurants (we ate at both the Bucks Head and the Mourne seafood bar, both very good) and shops to support whatever we needed. It is well situated close to Newcastle and close enough to visit Belfast which we did. Also plenty of local sights nearby, with lovely visits to Tollymore Forest and Dundrum Castle. Thoroughly recommended.

Dundrum is a small village located on Dundrum Bay, at the foot of the Mourne Mountains. This area is recognised as both an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and one of the finest places on the island of Ireland to see a wonderful range of wildlife. Within 10 minutes drive there is an extensive range of activities, whatever your age or interests, including Golf at the world famous Royal County Down golf course, (a mere 5 minutes away); horse riding, both in the forests surrounding the area as well as exhilarating beach rides; and of course, with such a stunning mountain range, hill walkers are spoilt for choice. However, if you are looking to unwind, then look no further. It’s peaceful location and stunning views encourage you to switch off your Blackberry, unplug the TV and simply watch the fantastic display of sea bird acrobatics, seals bobbing past your window and the ever changing landscape created by the ebb and flow of the twice daily tide – all from the comfort of your balcony.

Golf: Royal County Down is one of the oldest Golf Clubs in Ireland with traditions dating back for more than one hundred years. Situated in Newcastle, where in the immortal words of Percy French, 'The Mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea', Royal County Down is not only a fine test of golf but has accompanying scenery that is spellbinding.

Alongside the Championship Links, Royal County Down has a second course, The Annesley Links. Laid out beneath the same massive, almost menacing backdrop, the Annesley Links is nowhere near as intimidating or as formidable a challenge as the Championship Links, but then it was never intended to be. It is a course for everyone.
