Welcome to our Guest House nestled in the Mournes


Welcome to our Guest House nestled in the heart of Newcastle Country Down!

Thank you for checking out our website and we hope you book with us and an enjoyable and relaxing time and most importantly that you sleep well.

As I’m sure you know The Mourne area is a beautiful location that combines history, natural beauty, and warm hospitality. From the shores of the Irish Sea to the Mourne Mountains, we truly do have it all. And with this brings a wealth of experiences for visitors like yourself to explore and enjoy.

The team and I, are ready to extend a warm welcome, and are on hand to help create a memorable experience where possible. Please do not hesitate in asking us any queries you may have, and we will do our best to ensure your needs are met including recommendations on local attractions, dining experiences, and hidden gems that will make your visit truly unforgettable.

We have recently bought Glassdrumman House (December 2023) and we have embarked on a rigorous renovation plan, to make your experience here a more comfortable and memorable one. 

We hope to open in time for Summer 2024 and we have renamed the property The Brambles to reflect what we are doing at The Briers in Newcastle.

Once again on behalf of myself and the team I would like to thank you for choosing to stay in The Briers and we hope your stay will be filled with joy, relaxation, and a sense of genuine hospitality.
