Directions to Dundrum Bay Holiday Homes from Dublin
From Dublin follow N1Motorway north to Dundalk and continue on the same motorway when it becomes the A1 as it enters Northern Ireland and continue on to Newry
The best way through Newry avoiding the City centre is to not take the first turn off for Newry, the junction with the A2, but to drive on and come off at the next slip road, the Junction with the A25 and A27. At this slip-road drive down off the motorway, keep to the right of slip road and go round the roundabout under the motorway to the 3rd turn-off following the signs for Downpatrick and Newcastle and on to the A27. Drive down a short distance to another roundabout, known locally as the ‘Five-ways’, recognisable with a MacDonald’s on the roundabout and a B and Q store. Drive round the roundabout past Macdonald’s and the B and Q along the A28, the Armagh Road and later Canal Street, towards Newry city centre. The end of this road becomes one-way and you are directed left and over a bridge towards Newry Court House.
At the Court House there are two adjacent mini-roundabouts, at the first roundabout turn right and at the second mini-roundabout turn left onto B8 following signs for Newcastle, on your right as you make this turn should be a restaurant called the Brass Monkey. Drive up a sweeping a left and then right hand bend out of Newry on the Rathfriland Road, about a mile out you come to a mini-roundabout, drive straight on, not turning left as some traffic may do so.
Drive about 10 mile to village of Hilltown passing through the smaller village of Mayobridge on the way.
At bottom of hill in Hilltown the main road sweeps left but you turn right onto B180 following signs for Bryansford. About one mile out of Hilltown just past a Country Pub and old style Petrol Station the road forks, take the left fork, which should be sign-posted for Bryansford and Newcastle and is still the B180.
The road will be quite twisty and the mountains will be on your right hand side as you drive along. Drive through the village of Bryansford continuing around a bad bend and down a hill and a little further on the B180 comes up to a staggered crossroads. Go across this junction by turning right and then immediately left, it should be sign-posted for Dundrum.
Pass through the village of Maghera the road literally curls around the pub in the centre of the village, The Maghera Inn which was Pub of the Year 2007. Continue to the end of the B180 where it comes out on to the busy A24 Belfast to Newcastle road.
Turn left on to this road and you almost immediately enter the village of Dundrum. The Holiday Homes are half way through the village on the right hand side; the gates are 20 metres before the only Telephone Box on the main street and opposite a disused Pub on the left, called the Ben Verrey. The gates are electronically controlled and opened by the same key that opens your allocated house door. For late arrivals this key is generally to be found in a little key safe by the front door, the key safe code will be issued prior to arrival.
