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.

This cosy cottage is situated at the harbour area of Newcastle with spectacular uninterrupted views of Dundrum bay. It is approximately a 15 minute leisurely walk to Newcastle town centre. 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.

Accommodation comprises 2 double bedrooms (sleeping maximum of 4 people and a travel cot is available for child up to two years of age), stair-gate & highchair also...

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.

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.
