Hastings Slieve Donard Resort & Spa

This famous hotel stands beneath the Mountains of Mourne in six acres of public grounds, adjacent to the beach and the Royal County Down Golf Links. The Victorian holiday hotel par excellence, the Slieve Donard first opened in 1897 and has been the leading place to stay in Newcastle ever since.


Hastings Hotels are renowned for their high standards – including regular refurbishment, immaculate maintenance and good housekeeping - and this ‘grand old lady’ of the group has recently been treated to a major makeover, which has brought a freshness while always having respect for the old building.


Both public areas and guest rooms are furnished with style and finished to a high standard - and all the bathrooms still sport one of the famous yellow Hastings’ ducks!


The hotel is perfectly positioned for exploring the Mournes or a golfing holiday and is well known for its wide range of special short breaks, which can be very good value - excellent on-site facilities include the hotel’s Elysium health club and Spa, and the nearby Tollymore Forest Park provides excellent walking.
