Donard Hotel, Newcastle
Great Old Hotel.
We loved the Donard. The staff couldn’t have been nicer. We had a huge room with a great view. The hotel is quite old but it has charm. The shower was great. The Italian restaurant on the next corner was fabulous. Royal County Down golf course is a short drive away.

Outstanding staff and location
Hotel was easy to find in a great location next to a fabulous restaurant. The staff were the nicest and went out of their way to make us welcome. Even went above and beyond a goofy request that I made to fulfill it. Room was wonderful with a great bathroom. Only negative I can say is that the bed was not very comfortable. But also not the worst we stayed in in Ireland. Newcastle was a beautiful town. They also made us breakfast at 630 am because we needed to get to Dublin airport early. Normally they don’t serve until 8 but they insisted. That was fantastic!

I would recommend the Donard very highly. It has a lovely family feel and the room was traditional but very spacious. Fab breakfast but overall the staff make it - so helpful and kind - nothing was too much trouble. Particular thanks to Pat and Tash - loved it
