No. 165 Widow's Row is a Northern Ireland Tourist Board approved property. It is a grade 2 listed cottage in a terrace of 12 houses. The cottages were built for the widow's and children of the fishermen who perished following the fishing disaster that occurred on Friday 13th January 1843.

However within a short walking distance (3 minutes) there is a restaurant and two traditional pubs for your enjoyment. Access to the Mourne Mountains is a 2 min walk from rear of property.

Interaction with guests
I meet all my guests at the property, to give them their keys and show them how everything works and answer any questions they may have. It does not matter what time of day or night my guests arrive I will be happy to meet them. If they need collected at Newcastle Bus Station that is not a problem.
I live within a 15 minute drive away from the cottage, so I am generally on hand, but I am only ever a phone call away.

Our stay at Anne's cottage on Widows' Row, Newcastle was perfect- from the spotlessly clean cottage to the furnishings and the warm welcome; we were so well-looked after. A great visit and we look forward to returning.

Management response:

Thanks Roberta. It was a pleasure having you both to stay. Thank you for your lovely review and please come back again soon. Take care.

We stayed in Anne's cottage for a weekend and found a special place we will definitely be visiting again. Steeped in history and with a wonderful host on hand to bring that history alive this little cottage is a wonderful escape. Immaculately maintained and thoughtfully renovated with Anne's wonderful eye for detail evident everywhere. Strongly recommended.

Management response:

Thank you so much Pauline for such a lovely review. I'm so glad you and Donal enjoyed your stay and the weather held out for you both to climb Slieve Donard. I would love you to visit again you're such a lovely couple. Kindest regards. Anne

We arrived by dark, in the blistery cold but were delighted to enter a cosy, well supplied cottage with the fire ready to light! In the morning we were met with the most spectacularly views across the beautiful blue sea. Ann met us the night we arrived and kindly showed us round the property before leaving us to enjoy every...

Thank you Kayleigh for taking the time to leave such a lovely review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. All of my guests comment on how cosy the cottage is, I suppose with 2 foot thick walls it helps!!! The fire is always set for my guests because that is what I would expect if I came to stay,...

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.
