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

Wonderful place to unwind

  • 5 of 5

This appartment never fails to impress. My fourth visit and I am already looking forward to my next visit. The view towards the Mourne Mountains is stunning and the ebb and flow of the tide in the inlet is entrancing. Being on the balcony watching the sunrise is pure joy. The appartment itself is spotlessly clean and comfortably roomy. Local shops and restaurants are a short walk away. It is just about perfect.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this lovely review! We are always so delighted when guests not only fall in love with the apartment and what it offers, but they enjoy it so much that they come back time after time. We must be doing something right! Hope to see you back again - maybe even for that big birthday you mentioned!

Lovely apartment with a terrific view.

A well kept apartment in a quiet development,with a lovely view of Dundrum Bay.

Very close to lovely day outings and to Belfast,Downpatrick & Lisburn. Co. Down is full of charming towns and scenic drives. Wonderful walks & hikes in Castlewellan and Tollymore park,and the Silent Valley.

Very suitable for a family or two couples,Well laid out floor plan for privacy.

The apartment is well maintained and the welcome is as expected in Ireland!

The owner is very responsive to queries etc.

Enjoy!

It's really become our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We have continually returned to this apartment because it is THE perfect place to relax. As soon as we walk through the front door the views of the bay takes all the stress away. We have two boys 18 and 16 who always enjoy returning here (crazy I know, think it has to do with Bayside Catch fantastic chipper!) This year, their father along with the two boys, decided to tackle the highest of the Mourne mountains. This they achieved, and to see their faces after their accomplishment was joyful. Along with it being a great bonding experience, they can look up at the mountain and claim it!! Seeing the pictures from the top, the views are breath taking, thoroughly recommend here for a holiday.

Very comfortable, nicely proportioned apartment with a beautiful outlook

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was very comfortable with two or three nice restaurants in the village and many more five minutes down the road in Newcastle. Local shops adequate for basics but again a much wider choice (Tesco etc ) in Newcastle.

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.
