Fabulous SHOREFRONT (uninterrupted panoramic views) property on the beach of Carlingford Lough - officially listed as a European 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' (quote: 'Each AONB has been designated for special attention by reason of their high qualities. These include their flora, fauna, historical and cultural associations as well as scenic views. AONB landscapes range from rugged coastline to water meadows to gentle downland and upland moors.'). Plus, home to the ancient epic legend of Cuchulainn and the Brown Bull of Cooley! Look it up! Fancy a month in Ireland, getting to know your heritage, trace your ancestors, some fantastic shopping, meeting the locals, or just traveling around the most beautiful country in the world?

Fancy a month in Ireland, getting to know your heritage, trace your ancestors, some fantastic shopping, meeting the locals, or just traveling around the most beautiful country in the world? This is the holiday destination for you! An hour from Dublin or Belfast and mid-way between the two, on the east coast, this GEM of a property is a 2-bed, 2-storey house, built in 1727 (nearly-300 year old home), which has been recently gutted and totally renovated, fully restored with many original features and furnished to make you feel right at home. Sea views from the kitchen, living room and master bedroom. Walk out your front door to stunning views of the Mountains of Mourne, have your morning cup of tea listening to the waves and plan your day hiking, pleasure-crafting, taking in the local medieval sights, taking the ferry from your front door to across the lough to Warrenpoint for an afternoon of wining and dining, shopping in Ireland's premier shopping district (Newry is 6 miles/a world away) or simply strolling to the shop for the newspaper and to take some air along the shorefront among the most breath-taking views of the best landscape in Ireland. This location cannot be beaten. The house is the first stone house to ever have been built in the village. No 1 Shore Road is one of four houses built in 1727 that comprise 'The Coastguards'; famous buildings scattered along the coastlines of Ireland built to guard seafarers and house generations of landed English gentry (and later Irish rebels)! This house is steeped in history and, in the hands of its current owner, has been lovingly restored to its former glory as a cosy dwelling with an open-fire and original pane glass sash windows and shutters looking out over the sea - at night-time, boats reflecting their lights in the water pass silently along the lough. When you enter the house, an open plan 50-foot view meets you at the front door. There is a huge kitchen, with all mod cons, and a warm wooden welcoming vaulted ceiling, dining table that seats 6-8, ceiling to floor windows overlooking a 50-foot back garden with trees and a small patio area for al fresco dining, and a down feather plush red couch with a heavy set 4x4ft coffee table and chairs. The living room is carpeted with a leather sofa and chairs and coffee table. The fireplace hearth was specially hand-made by a local artisan to fit the larger than normal fireplace. This house has been lovingly restored. The bathroom downstairs has an electrically heated (instant hot water) two-person bath, and upstairs there are two double bedrooms; a smaller bedroom to the rear, with a wrought-iron double bed and fitted wardrobe and cupboards, overlooking the garden and Cooley mountain range and the master bedroom, the width of the house to the front, with two large sash windows overlooking the sea, an original cast iron (dipped and painted) fireplace, sanded and stained floorboards and an en suite with a bath and shower. Public transport runs every hour from Dublin airport to Newry (10 mins taxi ride away) and from Belfast Bus Station. There is also a bus that runs from Newry to Omeath and along the coastline to Carlingford and Greenore. This is the perfect retreat for anyone wanting to soak up the natural beauty of the best of Ireland's scenery, engage in water sports, seek out medieval Ireland, or anyone wanting to have a fantastic base an hour from the two main airports at Dublin and Belfast, for exploring this magical island, or just wanting to hide away to finish a novel or other pursuit, with just the landscape and the locals in the pubs for company. This limited-time opportunity would happily be a spectacular home to a group of 1 - 4 adults (two double beds), with additional options for children. If this sounds like the perfect place for your two-week, 1-month, 3-month (or longer) holiday, email me with your requirements. I'm flexible and I am keen to make you happy, so any requests, just ask. Looking forward to hearing from you, Regards, Suzanne More

Thanks Alyson. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes, it is an old house; much of the furniture and kitchen are rustic and in keeping with that; Aga range, wooden floorboards, etc. We’re working on the garden as we speak. Hope your travels back went smoothly....More

About the neighbourhood
An EU Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the place is breath-taking. But there are virtually no tourists as it's an unknown, local idyll. An ideal spot for walkers/cyclists (greenway walk at the front door is 7 miles to the medieval village of Carlingford along the water's edge and stunning views) and hikers (the mountain park 1 mile from the house up gorgeous terrain to Slieve Foy mountain park -- from the top of the mountain down into Carlingford is 45 mins, all down hill). Get a taxi to the look out post at the top, if you're not into hiking per se. Or walk 20 mins from the house to the park and up the hill, another 30 mins, and then downhill, 45 mins. Or simply stroll on the beach at the front door. It's gorgeous.
Getting around
Cafe, pubs, hotel restaurant, pharmacy, post office, coal distributor (petrol station), liquor store (beside the pub) and convenience store (inside petrol Mace station), all 2 mins walk in the village. For a bigger grocery shop or high end shopping, it's 6 miles to Newry to a shopping hub, two large shopping centres and all transport links.
