                      Golf: Royal County Down is one of the oldest and most renowned Golf Clubs in Ireland with traditions dating back for more than one hundred years. In 2007 the Walker Cup matches were held here. Situated in Newcastle, where in the immortal words of Percy French, 'The Mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea', Royal County Down is not only a fine test of golf but has accompanying scenery that is spellbinding. Alongside the Championship Links, Royal County Down has a second course, The Annesley Links. Laid out beneath the same massive, almost menacing backdrop, the Annesley Links is nowhere near as intimidating or as formidable a challenge as the Championship Links, but then it was never intended to be. It is a course for everyone. (Extracts from the official Royal County Down Golf Course website). For further details tel: (028) 4372 3314

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: Our wonderful Bayview Apartment is owned by my husband and I. We have 2 children aged 5 and 7 years. My husband is an artist and I am self-employed. I manage this apartment and our other rental properties in Greyabbey and the South of France. I also work freelance as a management consultant within the voluntary sector. We live in Belfast. Our other holiday rental propertiies are: 'Rose Cottage' Greyabbey, Northern Ireland, listing no. 1130644, 'Jasmin Villa', St Paul de Vence, South of France, listing no. 486700 and 'Mimosa Villa', St Paul de Vence, South of France, listing no. 18909. We pride ourselves in offering a 'home from home' experience for our guests by ensuring our properties are comfortable, stylish and well equipped.

                      Why the Owner Chose Newcastle:
                      Simply....the views are second to none! We have travelled the world and stayed in many wonderful places but the view of the mountains and the bay at Dundrum captured our heart. We plan to retire there and can't imagine ourselves ever parting with it! It has been our pleasure to share it with guests from all around the world and many return each year, sometimes twice or three times a year to enjoy it! I think it has captured their heart also!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      The apartment is one of only three properties at The Quay which have floor to ceiling corner windows taking in both the views of the Bay and the Mountains. We may be bias but we believe we chose the best spot! It is bright and spacious and as soon as you walk in through the doors, we guarantee you will relax! It is totally calm and peaceful and it wouldn't be hard to lose track of time kicking back and enjoying the ever changing views. We take pride in how we present the apartment for our guests and the furnishings, artwork, bedlinen etc are all of good quality. Believe me, we want you to have a wonderful experience and to enjoy your stay at the apartment as much as we do!
