About the neighbourhood
At Newcastle you step off the beach on to the mountain slopes - at the foot of Northern Ireland's highest peak, Slieve Donard (2,796 ft). You can step off the same five-mile beach on to Royal County Down Golf Course and its easier companion course the Mourne Golf Course. The harbour is full of sailing boats and fishing trips are bookable.You can walk from one end of town to the other along the award winning promenade. The Tropicana has outdoor fun pools and an adventure playground. Exhibitions and Summer shows are shown at the adjacent Newcastle Centre. The recreation grounds include a bowling green children's boating pool, tennis and miniature golf, while beautiful Donard Park tempts you to walk by the cascading Glen River up into the heart of the mountains. Visit Castlewellan forest park...
