Janet Hamilton purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Janet Hamilton chose Newcastle

Simply....the views are second to none! We have travelled the world and stayed in many wonderful places but the view of the mountains and the bay at Dundrum captured our heart. We plan to retire there and can't imagine ourselves ever parting with it! It has been our pleasure to share it with guests from all around the world and many return each year, sometimes twice or three times a year to enjoy it! I think it has captured their heart also!

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is one of only three properties at The Quay which have floor to ceiling corner windows taking in both the views of the Bay and the Mountains. We may be bias but we believe we chose the best spot! It is bright and spacious and as soon as you walk in through the doors, we guarantee you will relax! It is totally calm and peaceful and it wouldn't be hard to lose track of time kicking back and enjoying the ever changing views. We take pride in how we present the apartment for our guests and the furnishings, artwork, bedlinen etc are all of good quality. Believe me, we want you to have a wonderful experience and to enjoy your stay at the apartment as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We received these lovely comments on a "thank you" card from our recent guests "Dear Janet, We had a really lovely holiday at your wonderful apartment. It is so comfortable and convenient and we will never forget the views of the bay and mountains. There are so many nice places close to Dundrum and we enjoyed walks at Murlough and around the mountains and the weather was mainly good. Many thanks for everything. Best wishes to you and your family"

A stunning property, ideal for a relaxing stay with all your home comforts.

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is beautiful. We all had a great sleep each evening as the beds were very comfortable. Location is fantastic as it’s quiet but convenient to shops and restaurants. Views out over the bay are stunning and we have enjoyed listening to the wind blow as we relax in the sofa. We will definitely be back!

A perfect Christmas shared with family

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the apartment many many times now; and so when we decided to go away for Christmas 2017, this was the logical place. This time we brought one of our parents and also one of our grownup children with us, both of whom have never been to the apartment before.

It was genuinely an absolute treat to watch their faces as they arrived, and walked into the living room, and to watch their overjoyed faces at seeing the luxurious apartment with the truely awesome outside sea and mountain views. It's just what we felt when we first arrived; and it still never fails to impress us. It was really good to share it with others.

What else can I say? The apartment is tastefully decorated, and has beautiful individual art work on the walls. The large L-shaped leather settee (something new since our Halloween 2017 visit!) is fantastically comfortable, and is just the location to watch the constantly changing and unfolding tidal scene that lie just beyond the large open windows.

The owner, Janet, is very friendly and always quickly answers any questions that are emailed. The complimentary bottle of wine and savouries that you see on your arrival is a much appreciated personal touch.

This apartment never fails to impress.

This spacious, luxury 3 bedroom apartment offers stunning, uninterrupted mountain and bay views. This is a superb spot for bird-watching and seal-spotting. There is a beach right at your doorstep and you are a short walk to the nature reserve of Murlough Bay and the ruins of Dundrum castle which offers superb views and is great for picnics. The nearby village contains a supermarket, antique shops, beauty salons and some renowned restaurants. You're in Ireland so there are plenty of pubs within walking distance! A short drive away will take you to the town of Newcastle at the foot of the Mournes and Castlewellan where you have access to any number of outdoor activities, golf, fishing, mountain climbing, canoeing, abseiling, sailing, mountain biking, tennis etc. Newcastle has a heated outdoor swimming pool during the summer months. You are a 30 minute drive to Strangford Lough, 40 minutes to Belfast ,1.5 hrs to the stunning Antrim Coast and Giants Causeway and 2 hours to Dublin.

Golf: Royal County Down is one of the oldest and most renowned Golf Clubs in Ireland with traditions dating back for more than one hundred years. In 2007 the Walker Cup matches were held here. 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. (Extracts from the official Royal County Down Golf Course website). For further details tel: (028) 4372 3314
