Reviewed 12 April 2014

This B&B is fine if you are going to be tucked up in bed by 9pm. For somewhere that is based in the centre of a town with a very very noisy bar/night club at the end of the street, its seems ironic that the owners are not keen on young people who might want to stay out late or have a few drinks. Dont get me wrong, we were not rowdy by any means however we were made to feel uncomfortable from the beginning, and when we checked out the owner was down right rude. I have never met anyone in the "hospitality business" who had so few social skills. I would really really REALLY not recommend this place. There are really nice places very close by which were less expensive and would definitly have been more welcoming. I wish I had taken other peoples advice and stayed elsewhere, we will never go back near this place again!

My wife and I were visiting my parents and stayed in Coolgreeny. (We live in upstate New York.) We were impressed by the comfort and level of service in this charming and accessible home. Colum and family were very accommodating and went out of their way to make sure we had a comfortable and relaxing stay. My parents are ill and unpredictable, so we were coming in and leaving at all hours. Everyone did all they could and more to accommodate our needs and we had a wonderful stay here. This is a cozy and friendly place, and my wife and I will definitely be staying there on our next trip to Newcastle. Thanks very much to all at Coolgreeny House!

I loved Coolgreeney so much I had to go back for my 4th visit this yr I couldn't have asked for a much bigger welcome than we got it wasn't long lost friends more like family. Colum welcomed us with his big hello & even bigger smile. And as usual nothing was to much trouble for any of them. The breakfast was lovely as well as the room. Really cant wait to go back could be very soon hope they have a really happy yr xxx

Just spent one evening at the Coolgreeney House in Newcastle, Ireland. Wonderful room amazing view of the beach / ocean. Owner was very, very pleasant. Gave us privacy and cooked us a wonderful irish breakfast. Would absolutely stay there again.

Coleen and Colum run a lovely cosy guesthouse right on the beautiful seafront. Delicious cooked breakfasts and spacious clean and comfortable rooms. We will definitely return to delight in their company again!

My friends and I stayed for two nights (5 of us in total) Colleen was at the door to feel welcome us, she took the time to talk with us in mornings while taking our breakfast orders and had time to answer all and any questions we had at other times. Colm cooked us an excellent breakfast. we had expected to feel cramped with 5 people and only two rooms but we had plenty of room and rooms were bright and extremely clean, would definately return, thank you both

Room Tip: was just good all round from start to finish you can't go wrong

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!
