Not long back from a 5 day stay over the half term break in the Carriages, and already looking forward to my next visit. This is a beautiful appartment which has been tastefully furnished with high quality furniture and, most importantly, is very clean. There is a very good range of cooking equipment but with the good selection of restaurants and lovely coffee shops available nearby it is difficult not to be tempted to eat out. I was, however, able to cook easily for a family of four in the excellent kitchen. Our host, Tony, was very welcoming and helpful and could not have been kinder to us. He went above and beyond the call of duty. Everything that we could need had been thoughtfully provided including a selection of DVDs to keep both the children and ourselves entertained in the evening. The view from the bedrooms was great. You could sit up in bed with a good book and look up at the mountains or watch the golfers at Royal Co Down. There is lots to do in the area, even in October/November. We were fortunate enough to arrive in time for a massive fireworks display and the weather was good enough to allow us to enjoy a walk on the beach. The children really enjoyed climbing trees in Tollymore and are anxious for a return visit when all the attractions in Newcastle are in full swing. I would definitely recommend it- great hospitality and lovely accomodation.

This apartment is really a fantastic find with really stunning views from the bedrooms. We had such a great week in the apartment and cannot wait to return. The furnishings are top class and the apartment was spotlessly clean. The owner Tony is a true gentleman, and he went out of his way to assist us with everything that we needed.
7 The Carriages is undoubtedly one of the best private rentals we have ever stayed in and deserves 5* for everything that is offered.
Looking forward to the next visit :)
