We stayed one night in the Harbour House Inn in Newcastle during our trip to Ireland. I was so pleasantly surprised to find out it was right on the water, and there was so much to do and see all within walking distance. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and they had parking around the back. Very comfortable, clean... More

Late night, music, mountains, sea...close to good access to mourns.or to sea if you prefer. BELFAST easy drive there now back in a day. Newcastle my favourite childhood holiday spot. Try the outdoor 'rock pool' down the road a bit. A cracker 😊

Meal was absolutely amazing, reasonably priced and delicious. Entertainment was great and atmosphere very relaxed. Views of the harbour are stunning regardless of the weather and the bar was very authentic and full of character. Staff were incredibly friendly helpful and accommodating. Will definitely be back.

Whilst this is a well kept and nicely situated pub overlooking the bay, the quality of the food is a bit lacking. We decided to eat here and were advised the food would be 20 minutes or so, but 1 hour and 10 mins later and having to ask where it was our food finally arrived with no real concern... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our property is on the South Promenade at Newcastle Harbour: The harbour is among the most richly historic areas of Newcastle. Home to many longstanding families, the area around the pier has a long association with the sea. The origins of the current harbour date back to the 1820's, when a new pier was created by Lord Annesley to replace the old one. One of the chief functions of the pier was to act as a loading point for Mourne granite, which was quarried in the hills above the harbour. If you stand on the shorter arm of the pier and look up towards the mountain you can see a path cut through the trees leading to the now defunct quarry on Millstone Mountain. In the last century, stone was quarried here and dispatched down this track to the harbour by railtrucks. It was loaded on to ships (known as Stone Boats) and used to build docks in Belfast and Liverpool and the courthouse gaol in nearby Downpatrick ... more   less
