Downshire Cottage

27 Downshire Road, Holywood, Co Down, BT18 9LX
Red front door


Downshire Cottage is a charming red bricked terrace house located in the heart of Holywood town centre. It was originally built as a labour's cottage for people working at Belfast Docks, however it has been extended, modernised and equipped to accommodate today's tourist/visitors, whist retaining its original features and sense of charm in a cosy cottage atmosphere.

On the ground floor there is a charming living / dining area with a real flame gas fire and a well-equipped modern kitchen with range cooker. On the first floor there is a double room and a twin room and a large bathroom. There is a converted attic room accessible by fixed loft ladder.

One of the Cottage's main advantages is its fantastic location, just off Holywood High Street. It provides an ideal base for those with transport as it comes with its own car park space. It is also a great option for those travelling on foot as it has doorstep convenience to the vibrant town centre of Holywood. This attractive, bustling town boasts numerous boutiques, art galleries, gift shops, and a fabulous selection of award winning bars and restaurants, all within a 1-minute walk from Downshire Cottage.

The cottage is a 5-10 minute stroll from the scenic coastal path and playpark at Seapark, and guests are ideally placed to explore the rest of North Down, Belfast and beyond, as access to transport, both bus and rail, is a 1-2 minute walk from the cottage. The George Best Belfast City Airport is a 5-minute drive from the cottage.
