Make a booking now at Slieve Donard. If you fancy indulging in a bit of first class luxury in Northern Ireland, the Slieve Donard Resort and Spa is the place to find it. Firstly, it’s part of the Hastings Group of hotels, which guarantees high levels of service in all areas. Secondly, its reputation as a destination hotel for its fine dining and spa climbs higher each year. Six acres of stunning private grounds is the natural environment, with backdrop of the Mountains of Mourne. Spectacular view from the hotel’s windows and gardens. Stroll through the gardens, then carry on for a brisk walk along a strand of golden beach just yards away. Royal County Down golf links close by means plenty of space to knock a tiny ball around if you so choose. The heart of the seaside town of Newcastle, with its elegant atmosphere, busy little shops and boutiques, is a short walk away.
Originally a Victorian Railway Hotel building of grandeur, built 115 years ago. The mega million pound refurbishment and spa addition has taken nothing of that gentile Victorian character away. Red brick creates a majestic façade of turrets and tall tower rising into the sky. Striking architecture, easily spotted on the drive in round the coast toward Newcastle. A team of consummate professionals are ready and waiting to greet you. And unlike some hotels that have this kind of reputation for luxury, you won’t find a stuffy atmosphere here. Genuine Irish hospitality abounds within these walls. Slieve Donard has been in the Hastings group for forty years.
The 181 bedrooms are equipped to the highest standards. Characterful interior design, sensual fabrics, and modern colours are used to great effect at all levels of accommodation. Standard rooms have a very contemporary feel, carried through to their bathrooms as well. Luxury rooms have more space for relaxation. All rooms have flat screen tv and tea and coffee making facilities. The six suites here are hard to beat. King Coil beds and generously thick duvets mean the comfiest night’s sleep ever, a sitting room area complete with cosy fire and flat screen tv and a dressing space with huge wardrobes. Spacious bathrooms have all the extras – fluffy robes and slippers and toileteries.
Enjoy refreshments in the Drawing Room with homely fire, newspapers and chessboards. Learn about the history of Slieve Donard in their small museum, showing old artefacts and photographs of the hotel and take home a gift in the gift shop within the hotel.
The Hastings Group commitment to sourcing the best local produce is showcased at the highest level of dining in The Oak Restaurant. Breakfast is a pleasurable hot and cold buffet, begging to be browed, with local ingredients flagged along the way. Dinner can also be taken here on a booking basis. Open to guests and non residents. The Grand Ballroom and Chandelier Room can take large parties for weddngs, celebrations and corporate affairs. A selection of smaller rooms are there for intimate gatherings and business meetings. The conference suite is fully equipped technologically for a successful meeting or presentation.
