Sorry no pets. Newcastle, the gateway to the Kingdom of Mourne, has a proud and colourful history stretching back over 400 years. Immortalised in the words of the Percy French song, “Where the Mountains of Mourne Sweep Down to the Sea” it has grown during the past four centuries from being an insignificant fishing village to its position today as the premier tourist resort in Northern Ireland. The key factor in Newcastle’s popularity has always been its unique location. Bordered on one side by the calm waters of Dundrum Bay and on the other side by the sweeping panorama of the Mourn Mountains. Newcastle is home to one of the most highly-rated and challenging golf courses in the world. Royal County Down has regularly featured among the Top Ten courses in the world selected by professional golfers and golf writers, and it remains one of the town’s biggest attractions. First laid out as a 9 hole course by Tom Morris of the famous St. Andrews course in August 1880, it was expanded to accommodate 18 holes a decade later. The neighbouring Mourne Golf Club was opened in 1909, and in the years before the Second World War’ the course regularly hosted The Irish Open Amateur, The Irish Open and the British Ladies’ Open Championships.
