My fiancee and I decided to stay here after some great reviews. It is certainly in an ideal location but we were made to feel out of place as soon as we checked in by the surly attitude of the landlord. We were only staying there for one night and we were excited abotu arranging our wedding plans in Newcastle. We were out and about throughout most of the day and arrived back around 8:30pm. We were as quiet as we could be sneaking upstairs as if we were back living at home with our parents (we are both in our late 30's). We sat having a chat for about 30 minutes about our plans, etc... I then jumped in the shower and almost immediately heard loud persistent thumping on the door. I rushed to the door because my partner was terrified and was greeted by the landlord saying that if we didnt keep the noise down we would be asked to leave. It was only because it was so late at night that I didn't drive the 2 hour journey home. We checked out 1st thing and were so disgusted with the attitude that we refused breakfast and actually went up town to a lovely little cafe to buy one.

I don't know what kind of people stay here but I definitely wouldn't recommend to anyone with children, those who watch television, have conversations...in fact i would 100% advise anyone to stay away from this B&B. I find it very hard to believe were the noisiest/ worse guests this man has ever had in his B&B, in fact we were paranoid that someone was listening outside in the hallway, so we were trying to whisper or keep our voices as low as possible. To top it all off, someone rang the door bell over and over again (which reverberates extremely loudly around the entire house) at around midnight, so we didn't even get a good night's sleep.
NEVER AGAIN!

I have just returned from a lovely weekend at newcastle and a lovely stay at coolgreeny with a warm welcome this is my 2nd time staying here and would definitely return. The breakfasts are delicious the room was perfect. The location was great in the centre from everything and right beside the sea. I would recommend if anyone was wanting to stay in newcastle to stay at coolgreeny

We are just back from our 4th visit to Coolgreeny House, we were welcomed back with open arms like long lost friends.
It is always a pleasure staying there with Colleen and Colm they say Ireland is the land of a thousand welcomes,
well you could not be made more welcome to this spotless well ran friendly establisment.

You have a choice of 4 different cereals, fruit,yoghurt toast (2 different types of bread) as well as a perfectly cooked breakfast (also a choice of fry up, scrambled or poached eggs)

I mean what else do you need for a nice break than to be in a clean welcoming B&B such as coolgreeny house is. Colm and Colleen open up their home to become yours for the duration of your stay...

We really can't fault it and wouldn't stay anywhere else other than here.

Loved our stay as usual and looking forward to the next time

Lovely location for a bed and breakfast although what let the place down for us was that the overall quality of the beds was extremely poor.Breakfast was also very poor both in relation to what was on offer and the cooked breakfast - --which seemed to be the only thing the hosts where interested in serving --- was fried to within an inch of its life.Sorry,but i doubt very much we would return which is a shame as the setting if very pretty and the location is central to the town and all it has to offer.At the very least we did enjoy the latter.
