4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9
Dundrum, County Down, Northern Ireland
The 4 star Downshire Manor Apartment comprises half of the former Downshire Hotel and, as such, is bursting with original period features. The house has been lovingly restored in a classic yet homely style and the roof terrace showcases a stunning sea view. It has the potential to sleep eight people comfortably and provides ample space for all guests and their needs.

This fine Georgian building is also in a prime location, cosily nestled between the Mourne Mountains and the golden beaches of Dundrum Bay. The village of Dundrum itself boasts a coffee shop, two award winning restaurants, several pubs and plenty of local shops to stock up on supplies. Newcastle and the Royal County Down Golf Course can be reached in a matter of minutes via bus.

Karen and Pat were very kind and thoughtful-- they even baked a cake for our birthday celebrations. The apartment feels very much like a home and there was more than enough space for our family of six-- including a large kitchen, parlor, sitting...
