We were walking by this place when we heard how happy everyone sounded inside, so we called in on spec and had the most wonderful night. The atmosphere inside was superb and we ended up spending the entire night here. We took part in the charity quiz which was raising money for a local youths football club and ended up... More

My husband and I stayed for only one night thankfully. The room had a lovely view of the sea but the decor was dingy, the room smelt strongly of disinfectant as if to mask another odour and someone's dress was hanging in the wardrobe. The bathroom was not clean. There were long brown hairs in the bath and the shower... More

Dear Cathy Apologies for any inconvenience caused during your stay. Unfortunately due to the shape of the building we do have rooms with slanted roofs, though we hope the view of Dundrum Bay makes up for this. We do use bleach for cleaning and no other reason. We are very sorry the room was not up to our usual standards... More

Had a lovely meal here after a charity walk up the hill. Got the steak deal (2 X steaks with sides and bottle of wine) and food was all delicious. Steak was perfect, chips great and chilli potatoes to die for! Lovely staff and great value for money - would definitely revisit & recommend!

Booked for my wife's birthday. If you like seafood, this restaurant is hard to beat.Fish dishes were super fresh, beautifully presented with just the right size of portion for us. The non fish eaters in the party had a more limited menu but their food was equally up to the high standard of the other dishes. If you are in... More

Visited this place last night, given it was a bank holiday we knew the place would be busy and it was, thankfully we got a table in a corner area with a reasonable view of the harbour area. Within a 10 minutes of sitting down the server came and took our order. I ordered the seafood chowder and my husband... More

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

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
