Everything about the Slieve Donard Resort & Spa spells luxury. This magnificent 115 year old building, formerly a railway hotel, is the perfect spot for some well-earned pamper and play. There’s a world-leading ESPA Spa on site, offering every therapy you can think of. The globally renowned Royal County Down golf course is right on the doorstep. And the hotel overlooks a long and winding beach – perfect for your little bucket and spade brigade – in the heart of seaside town Newcastle, and all framed by the Mourne mountains sweeping down to the sea. Lie back in lounges with roaring open fires, catch up in cozy bars, dine in delightful surroundings. This hotel is beautiful, historic, romantic & opulent. But it’s also home to all things fun. Come and enjoy it.
Many of Slieve Donard’s delightful 178 rooms offer picture postcard vistas across gardens, golf course, mountains or coastline. Recently completely refurbished,’traditionally tasteful’ is how the hotel describes its style. Comfortable, functional & inviting, with the fluffiest, yummiest duvets draped over comfortable King Coil beds.

Tea and afternoons go together like the Slieve Donard and the sea… perfection! Steaming teapot and cup of the finest tea, pretty plates piled high with dainty sandwiches and sweet treats. A ceremony for winding down and catching up – with sugar lumps and a beautiful seaside view…
On the Map: Newcastle is located in County Down on the east coast of Northern Ireland. The A2 road, connecting the cities of Newry (to the west), and Belfast (to the north), passes right through town.
Voted Northern Ireland’s best kept town a few years ago, Newcastle offers activities to interest all ages. Steeped in history, Newcastle has for many years been one of the most popular resorts in the country. The combination of a long, clean, tidy beach to one side and the overbearing sulking mountains of Mourne to the other gives the place a special feeling which many poets and artists have tried to convey over the years. However one can only truly appreciate the unparalleled beauty of the town by experiencing it first hand. The nearby Royal County Down Golf Club is believed by many to be among the most beautiful and competitive courses anywhere, indeed many professional players have included it among their top ten courses in the world.
