Annalong Main Street is where most of the shops are situated such as the small local branch of 'Nisa' (formally known as 'Holmes', but it has the local name of 'Sydney's'), a beauty salon ("Country Beauty") and a hairdresser ("GI Hair"). There is also a pub at the very bottom of the main street named the 'Harbour Inn' as it is right beside the harbour; it was recently burnt down but has been rebuilt with a sort of 'Western' theme. There are many old cottages and houses in the harbour area but new estates have been built on the outskirts of the village. Along the main road to Kilkeel and Newcastle there is a small café named "Top Nosh" which has an excellent reputation, a 'Centra' supermarket and another pub called the "Halfway House" although the Harbour Inn would attract more people due to that fact it serves a beautiful meal, this pub should not be passed by - it also has recently been refurbished and offers a clean and friendly atmosphere with a good selection of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
The village was once engaged in exporting dressed granite and is now a fishing and holiday resort. Annalong Primary School is in the village and Annalong Community Development Association was established in 1994. Annalong Presbyterian Church is situated on the main Newcastle to Kilkeel road. It was established in 1840 and the Meeting House was ready for use by 1842.
