    Have just spent a lovely one night stay at this hotel. We were made very welcome by Maureen The bedroom was newly refurbished and the bed itself was the most comfortable I have ever slept in when away from home bar none. The room was very comfortable and cosy.

    Stayed over the period of the Irish Open, had a really great time, Maureen was a superb host sorting taxis out for our trips to the course. Rooms were excellent and the breakfast is 1st class. If you needed anything staff would do anything to get it for you. I would recommend a stay here as I will be back again.

From the moment that you arrive to the morning of departure you will be made to feel welcome at all times.

Nestled in the heart of South Down, our 18th Century Country House provides an excellent 3 star bed and breakfast base at the foot of the Mourne Mountains whilst still being within easy reach of Newcastle and the many activities it has to offer. Just a 15-minute walk from the town, and less than an hour from the cities of Belfast, Newry and Lisburn, the Briers is in an ideal location for walkers, wedding guests and sight-seers alike.

For the more adventurous, we offer a fantastic location to begin to explore the varied terrain around the area, with plenty of outdoor centres to help you on your way, whilst the luxurious seaweed baths and nearby seaside spas offer a less strenuous way to recharge your batteries. Combined with breath-taking views, spacious and comfortable rooms and ever-friendly service, it’ll feel like a home from home in no time!

We look forward to welcoming you to the Briers Bed & Breakfast Newcastle, County Down, thank you for your interest.
