Northern Ireland region

Northern Ireland is a country of beauty and variety; and no part of it combines so much of each in so neat and compact an area as the heart of Down. Famous for its links with St Patrick, Co. Down is one of N. Ireland's most scenic and legend-steeped locales.

From Downpatrick, reputed burial site of Ireland's Patron Saint, Bangor, home to one of Ireland's largest marinas, and Newcastle, gateway to the Mourne Mountains, Co. Down packs a lot into its eminently explorable environs.

The Ards Peninsula, Strangford Lough andCarlingford Lough provide picturesque seascapes, not least the pictured Mount Stewart House and Gardens - a National Trust property hugging Strangford's shore. And those Mournes afford fantastic rambling, climbing and picnicing opportunities.

Check out Portaferry's Exploris, NI's only Aquarium, and the Brontë Homeland near Banbridge - birthplace of Patrick Bronte, whose three daughters became great novelists, inspired them by tales of his youth in the Bann Valley. The quiet river valley from Banbridge to Rathfriland is nowadays called The Bronte Country.

In County Down you will find a concentration of delights for which you would motor many miles in other places - firm, clean beaches; shoals of sea fish and rivers full of game and coarse fish; championship-standard golf; superb forest parks; cathedrals; castles and gardens: boating. bird-watching, walking and pony trekking, mountain climbing and rambling, watersports, cycling and mountain biking to name but a few.




Newcastle

At Newcastle you step off the beach on to the mountain slopes - at the foot of Northern Ireland's highest peak, Slieve Donard (2,796 ft). You can step off the same five-mile beach on to Royal County Down Golf Course and its easier companion course the Mourne Golf Course. The harbour is full of sailing boats and fishing trips are bookable.You can walk from one end of town to the other along the award winning promenade. The Tropicana has outdoor fun pools and an adventure playground. Exhibitions and Summer shows are shown at the adjacent Newcastle Centre. The recreation grounds include a bowling green children's boating pool, tennis and miniature golf, while beautiful Donard Park tempts you to walk by the cascading Glen River up into the heart of the mountains. Visit Castlewellan forest park and enter the Peace Maze. It is the world's largest permanent hedge maze representing the path to a peaceful future for Northern Ireland. Planted in 2000 with community involvement, it is maturing quickly and visitors attempt to solve their way to the peace bell in the centre of the maze.

Newcastle and the surrounding areas offer to many attractions to mention. There is a vast amount of tourist information available at the cottage and the local Tourist Information Office at Central Promenade can answer any queries you may have.

“A cosy gem in the heart of the mournes”

Reviewed 16 Feb 2016

We were met by Anne who made us feel very welcome. The cottage had all the charm you would expect from a property of its age, but with all the modern comfort and cleanliness of home. The location was fantastic for touring the surrounding area. Thank you Anne!

Thank you Joan for your lovely review. I'm so pleased that you and Eric and the little dog enjoyed your stay. The fire will always be set for you if you ever decide to return. It would be a pleasure to see you again and no one has ever left the house so tidy, so thank you for that also. Kindest Regards Anne

“Beyond expectations - full of special touches to make a home from home”

Reviewed 19 Jan 2016

Gorgeous cottage perched above the bay overlooking Newcastle. Every detail thought through and we were so touched by the Christmas decorations and firewood. Lovely on every level.

Thanks Karen for taking the time to leave your review. So glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you both back again in the future. Kindest Regards Anne

“Absolutely fabulous, spotlessly clean cottage”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2015

I stayed here for 4 nights with my husband, 5 year old daughter and my 10month old. Anne met us from our taxi and couldn't have been mote friendly and welcoming. She showed us where everything was, and how everything worked. The cottage has a lovely cosy lounge with a real fire (we were lucky with the weather so didn't need to use it), plenty of seating and amazing sea views. There is a useful porch for storing shoes, buggy etc. The kitchen diner is large and was perfect for us for eating. It's fully equipped with everything you might need. Upstairs, there is a bathroom with bath and shower, and two double bedrooms. The front master bedroom is beautiful and the bed was so comfy. I loved that you could see the sea from bed!! Anne provided everything we requested including high chair, stair gate and travel cot. 5 min walk down the hill is the Harbour Inn, we had food here and it was very family friendly. A 15-20 min walk takes you into Newcastle centre. Here there are lots of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Highly recommend Nikis Kitchen, food here was great. There are also amusement arcades, play parks and two outdoor swimming pools. The view from the cottage across the bay was amazing, there is a terraced area outside perfect for admiring the view. Overall, the cottage is like a home from home. We really didn't want to leave and will definitely be visiting again. Anne was a perfect host and nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend staying here. Thanks Anne x

Thank you Laura for such a lovely review of the cottage and Newcastle. I'm so pleased your lovely family enjoyed staying at Widows Row and it would be a pleasure to have you back anytime. It is never any trouble to provide everything for the children and if there was anything else you may have needed you just had to ask. It gives me great pleasure to make my guests stay as enjoyable as possible, and I am delighted you had a good time. Take care.

“Beautiful cottage with breathtaking view of the sea.”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2015

Everything you could need for a self catering holiday. Warm welcome from Anne even though we arrived late. Absolutely spotless and very well equipped, all very comfortable and with stunning views.

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a lovely review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay, sorry about the weather though. I know it wasn't great for Richard's golf. Take care. Anne

“Beautiful view at a home from home”

Reviewed 21 Jul 2015

We only had a quick 2 night stay at this lovely house. We stayed with our 18mth old who was catered for before we got there as Anne had already fitted a stair gate and got the high chair etc ready. The house was kitted out with all you need to simply move in. Tea in the kitchen and toiletries in the bathroom. A very clean house and warm welcome from Anne on arrival. There is a pub, restaurant and shop all within 5 mins walk.

Thanks Lee for taking the time to leave a great review. Much appreciated. I'm so pleased that you and your family enjoyed your stay. You'll just have to come back for a longer visit next time. Take care. Anne

Great location in Newcastle - beautiful views. Owner has everything you will need and is most accommodating. One of our favorite places we stayed.

I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Widows Row cottage. Thanks for leaving the review, much appreciated. Anne

“Relaxing, beautiful cottage”

Reviewed 10 Mar 2015

Widows Row is a fab place to stay, Fantastic views from the living room over the ocean, out the back mountain walks, very relaxing and cosy , I certainly will be back

Thanks Valerie for your review. So glad you enjoyed your stay and found the cottage to your liking. Also it was very important that wee Ralphie enjoyed his doggie holiday as well. Hope to see you both back again at Widows Row.

“Great place to stay”

Reviewed 21 Feb 2015

We rented the cottage on Widows Row for ten days to cover the period around our wedding anniversary. The location is perfect for walking in the Mournes (the Granite Trail starts pretty much outside the back door!) and there is a strong sense of history in the area (the clue is in the name). The cottage itself was absolutely picture perfect for the two of us - very well thought through in terms of what has been done to it to provide all the necessities of 21st century life whilst retaining all the charm of the 19th century building that it is. We had a brilliant time and explored the town of Newcastle as well as the smaller villages that surround it including Annalong (worth a visit to walk along the coastal path and follow up with a meal or even a coffee in the Harbour Inn); Castlewellan (for the lake walks followed by a visit to Hillyard House coffee shop); Dundrum (the walks along the old railway line to Ardilea Bridge and coffee afterwards in the Blue Bay Cafe) and several others. As you can tell, we walked a lot and took in the coffee shops even more - Niki's Kitchen in Newcastle just has to be mentioned. Our stay in the cottage was fantastic and we look forward to re-visiting it.

Barry, thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a great review, not only of the cottage, but also the surrounding area. So glad that you and Margaret decided to spend you anniversary in Widows Row and I look forward to welcoming you again anytime you wish. Take Care. Anne

“Fabulous cottage holiday”

Reviewed 27 Dec 2014

Beautiful cottage, tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. Fully equipped kitchen made cooking Christmas dinner easy, comfortable bedrooms, cosy living room with open fire. Good heating system and excellent wifi. Panoramic view of sea from front window. Beautifully decorated for Christmas. Great home from home holiday.

Anne, thank you so much for such a great, and extremely prompt, review. I'm really pleased that you enjoyed Christmas in the cottage and that it provided you with everything you needed. Every year I have guests staying over the Christmas and New Year holidays and they always tell me it is just perfect place to spend those days. So it makes me very happy that other people enjoy the cottage at these special times of the year. Thank you again for spending your Christmas in Widows Row and maybe I will see you again in the future. Take Care and best wishes for 2015

“A little Seaside Paradise”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2014

We decided that a family holiday was needed as we had been spent a few years renovating an old house, looking through Gumtree one evening we came across, Windows Row Holiday Cottage, situated over-looking the Atlantic located at the edge of Newcastle Town, we made a booking and spent the first two weeks of July, 2014. The cottage was simply spotless, and both the living room and master bedroom offered views that need to be seen to be believed, the kitchen was large and could cope easily with my wife, myself and our two children, Anna, the owner of the cottage is a lovely lady and couldn't do enough for us, we enjoyed her beautiful Holiday Cottage so much that we have once again booked two weeks in 2015. Newcastle and the scenery is possibly the most prettiest part of the country and there are many attractions, events and activities for both adults and children, we loved our stay in this beautiful, peaceful Holiday Cottage and would highly recommend to other couples and families, thank you Anna, see you in 2015.

Louis & Gail, apologies for not replying to your review sooner. The summer season was hectic and there appears to be no let up as the year progresses, which is always a good sign. I was delighted with you review and so glad you found the cottage to your liking and even more delighted that I'll be seeing you again in 2015. It was a pleasure having such a wonderful family to stay. Take care and see you next year!
