About the neighbourhood
Newcastle, Castlewellan and the Mourne area generally, lends itself to a host of outdoor activities for all ages, however, with such beautiful scenery to walk or drive through, it can also be a joy to relax in.

Children can enjoy rolling down hills , climbing trees, jumping over stepping stones across rivers. There is also a children's play area within the fenced picnic area. Many specimen trees can be found in the arboretum. Those who are interested may also wish to look for Game of Throne locations.
