The large front bay window overlooks the sandy beach, and picturesque harbour with wooden pier while the rear views of the majestic Mourne Mountains are equally inspiring. Off the landing are a family bathroom with both a bath and a walk-in shower, and a large master bedroom with an ensuite. On the ground floor are a fully equipped large kitchen-diner with a table that can seat 10; a bedroom with a double bed and a bunk room with 2 bunkbeds that sleep 4.There are wardrobes, drawers and a TV in all 3 bedrooms. The house has large enclosed front and rear gardens, a boathouse/garage and a lot of parking space.

The local area offers mountain treks, forest parks, fishing, horse riding, nature watching, a picturesque castle, golf courses and a variety of beaches including the award-winning blue flag beach at Cranfield.

From the comfort of the living room you can view the colony of seals and terns on the offshore island and in the evenings the light from the local lighthouse.

Kilkeel is the nearest town (6 miles away) and has a supermarket, fast food outlets, a petrol station and an indoor swimming pool.

Newry has a multiscreen cinema and a direct rail link to Dublin-Belfast.

This really is the ideal location for a magical family holiday or a relaxing break from the pressures of everyday life.

The County Down region

Greencastle is simply unique! and in a designated area of "Outstanding Natural Beauty" It has its own castle to explore (built circa 1200AD) and there is an ancient Motte just behind the holiday home. Kilkeel (6 miles away) is a fishing town with a working fleet of fishing trawlers in the harbour. Freshly caught fish can be bought during the week in the harbour area. Many of the local restaurants in Kilkeel, Warrenpoint and Rostrevor have fish on the menu. Kilkeel has a good swimming pool and the leisure centre also offers tennis courts, squash courts and a gym. Both Kilkeel and Kilbroney offer great park/play areas for younger children.

The Mourne Mountains allow easy access for numerous mountain trails and there are Forest parks at Tollymore and Kilbroney. A blue flag beach is just around the corner at Cranfield. Fishing from the rocks is a popular pass time. Greencastle is one of the last truly unspoilt hidden gems of Ireland.

Kilkeel

Greencastle itself has a small local harbour that houses the two tug boats and two pilot boats that work with the large ships going into Greenore/Warrenpoint harbours. It is relaxing to sit at the large window in the living room and watch the 'traffic' out in the channel as well as watching the activities of the seals, Brent geese, Herons and Housemartins.

The road to the holiday house is a cul-de-sac so only local traffic uses it.
