The Dunes, Downs Road, Newcastle, County Down


Information about The Dunes

Introduction - Luxury Coastal Living

The Dunes is a boutique collection of just six coastal two-bedroom and three bedroom apartments located on the seafront in Newcastle, Co. Down.

This unparalleled location is in a central but peaceful area of this marine spa town which is as famous for its landscape as the lifestyle on offer, not least the Royal County Down Golf Course, which is just a few minutes walk away.

Residents can enjoy an area of outstanding natural beauty, one that is defined by the Irish Sea, the Mourne Mountains, sweeping beaches and an abundance of unspoilt forest parks and countryside.

Location - A Coastal Culture with Modern Convenience

Newcastle is the focal point of a vibrant coastal culture continually modernising while retaining an artisan heritage packed with character and blended by a close-knit community spirit.

Located on the southeast coast of County Down, Newcastle provides dramatic 360° panoramic views framed by the country’s most beautiful natural assets, including the Mourne Mountains, Murlough Nature Reserve, Tyrella Beach, Tollymore Forest Park, and the Irish sea.

The natural beauty of the area – its rugged coastline, sweeping sandy beaches, quiet dunes and fabulous walks, is a big attraction. Equally, the town itself has as much to offer as the landscape which surrounds it.

The Dunes offers an unrivalled lifestyle, from cosy fireside meals and Spa days at the Slieve Donard Hotel to salt-air forest, beach and mountain walks or a round of golf at the world-renowned Royal County Down. For those who love the outdoors, the shoreline provides an array of water-based pursuits such as sailing, paddle-boarding, and kayaking. The town has a seawater swimming club that has become immensely popular over the past few years. The coastal culture that Newcastle offers is perfect for relaxing and unwinding or for restoring and refreshing, all of which are essential elements of physical and mental wellbeing.

Foodie Heaven

Newcastle and surrounding areas have an exceptional culinary reputation and boast some of Ireland’s top food and drinks venues. The award-winning Brunel’s Restaurant is less than a minute’s walk from The Dunes, and the famed Mourne Seafood is a short drive away in nearby Dundrum. Local restaurants, pubs and cafes are passionate about using the highest quality local fare to offer fresh, local and seasonal cuisine.

Royal County Down Golf Course

You are a ten-minute walk away from one of the best golf courses in the world, located in the most naturally beautiful links settings. Occupying part of the Murlough Nature Reserve and set against the magnificent backdrop of the Mountains of Mourne, the links stretch along the shores of Dundrum Bay, zigzagging back and forth to provide a different vista from virtually every hole.


Every property within The Dunes has a luxury interior and eclectic richness inspired by the location’s natural beauty and which embraces these most stunning surroundings.

From the imposing granite mountains to the gentle marram grass dunes and sandy beaches, each home sits in harmony with this unique diversity through complementing styles and tactile textures that create cohesive and beautifully realised homes.

Each interior boasts a neutral colour palette and wood accents with an abundance of natural light that makes each space feel even bigger and brighter. Residents will enjoy a high-end finish upon which to add individual style through their own furniture and accessories.

The Dunes represents a high-end meditative approach to home living using a contemporary style with a traditional twist that ushers in an inviting and satisfying atmosphere.
