The unassuming but pleasant town of Newcastle sits proudly on the broad sweep of one of the most magnificent bays in the whole of Ireland. Visitors stay in the hostels here since it is the major gateway to the Mourne Mountains. It sits in the shadow of Northern Ireland's highest and best known peak, Slieve Donard. Outdoor activities proliferate in the area and as well as the Mournes themselves, there is good walking around the historic Donard Park, Tollymore Forest Park, and in the Silent Valley area where there are tracks suitable for all ages and abilities. Mountain biking and horse riding are also popular in the area and there are a number of companies and outfitters who will help you to get out and explore. At the northern end of the bay there is a world-famous golf course with a spa hotel if you are in the mood for some real luxury.

Newcastle itself has a traditional seaside feel to it and out of season it can be quiet and the Newcastle hostels a little empty. The town has a number of saltwater swimming pools dotted along the front and the beach itself is impressive, although a little stony. The town has all the facilities required by a traveler. There are banks and plenty of shops, a good selection of cafes and takeaways, not to mention a large number of traditional-style pubs, where you can enjoy plenty of craic with the locals whilst sampling a few pints of Guinness! The town is the perfect stop-off between Dublin and Belfast and has more than enough attractions to keep even the fussiest traveler occupied for a day or two.
