Slieve Donard Cottage
Ranked #13 of 18 Newcastle B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 May 2013

Very nice cottage, fitted and furnished to a high standard. There is everything required for a comfortable stay, including wifi. On cool evenings the open fire makes it very cosy indeed. Newcastle town centre is within walking distance, there is also a good pub/ restaurant just five minutes down the road. Convenient for walkers, easy to walk straight on to the hills almost from behind the cottage. A beautiful area well worth visiting. Very friendly and helpful owners too. Hope to be back soon!

We have just had a lovely break at this perfect cottage. Great location and very good facilities; home from home. We also found the owners to be very approachable and there was just nothing too much for them and made us feel really welcome. Perfect for walking in the mountains as well as a short distance from the town. Wonderful views from bedroom window and looking forward to our next trip there.

Nice little cottage, one decent double, and one small single (with twin beds - but it's not big).
Good location for Slieve Donnard (take the bloody bridge route) and other walks in the Mourne region. It's right next to the sea, so the views are lovely.

Off road parking, no real garden to speak of (it's on a big slope at the back), but in the summer I would think it would be lovely to sit in the front of the house and watch the sea.

Newcastle itself isn't great (just my opinion), like many seaside towns, it's a little down on it's luck, although we were there in April so that might be unfair. That's mainly based on a shortage of nice places to eat - but there are a handful of interesting places.

Cottage has a proper fire and full central heating, so nice and warm even in the colder months. Not much mobile signal, but they do provide free wifi, so communications is covered, :-)

We would stay again if we were walking in the area.

Very tastefully decorated cottage, with an historical background. Beautiful views. Immaculately maintained. Good location. We enjoyed a seaweed bath in Soak during our stay - most enjoyable and only a short distance from Widow' s Row.

Quaint cottage that was immaculate and furnished to great standards. About a mile out of town so all amenities close by. This has a breathtaking views. But a little unsure if the back garden would be safe for toddlers. Will def re-book as a couple
