Fabulous 8.6 From 130 reviews

Donard Hotel, Newcastle
The location was fabulous, view from the hotel, of the Mournes was breathtaking, the staff excellent, food, only had breakfast which was excellent, good choices, hotel cleanliness also excellent, only minor, hate to say complaint, but the Hotel is tired, brown bathroom suite!! Very much in need of redecorating, brought up to date, but then price would not be the bargain it is, nearby hotel nearly 3 times the price

Very Good8.0
Old, but Convenient
Pros: Friendly greeting and quick check-in. Hotel is old but clean. Good location, near shops, pubs, and restaurants. Close to seaside promenade. Cons: Hotel is old and a bit tired. Breakfast is good but service is slow, with only one-person waitstaff. Hotel is on busy street, near pubs, so street side rooms are noisy. Bottom Line: May be best choice in Newcastle if you want to stay within walking distance of conveniences.

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!
