One Shore Street of Donaghadee, Co. Down, has been given a five star-grading by Tourism NI.
Dating back to the 1800s and currently owned by Karen Bolleboom, the building has undergone a transformation to create a place for visitors to relax and unwind.
In a statement on Tourism NI's website, Tourism NI quality and standards manager Samantha Corr said, "We are thrilled to award Karen this well-deserved five-star grading for her luxurious guest accommodation. We congratulate Karen on achieving this level of quality and helping to send a strong message to our visitors on the standard available within the Northern Ireland tourism accommodation offering."

Meanwhile, Bolleboom commented, "What an amazing first year for One Shore Street. We opened our five bedroom luxury guest accommodation last December, having completely renovated a seafront period property in Donaghadee. We've already welcomed guests from all over the world, who are enjoying the buzz in Donaghadee's bars, restaurants, cafés and the newly-opened Copeland Distillery. The property is also available for exclusive hire and we have enjoyed hosting birthday parties, pop-up foodie events and wedding guests.
"Donaghadee is also an ideal base to explore the Mournes, tour the peninsula and sample the famous fresh seafood from Strangford Lough. Receiving five stars from Tourism NI has rounded off our first year perfectly and is the icing on the cake."
