As passing through A2 Newcastle, this attraction was well marked and easy to visit. For us it was a disappointment to realize that it's only ruins, but a good mark from ancient times from 12th century. Best was the sights over threes towards sea &...More

Been a long long time since i visited here last. It is still as beautiful. Nice to see the attendant taking pride so early on a Sunday morning when we visited picking up the litter some thoughtless person had left behind.

We climbed around the castle ruins (self guided tour) and loved the area and the view. Cromwell had his way with this castle and dismantled most of it, but what is left is really worth the visit.

A nicely maintained Norman castle ruin with good explanations provided. Safe and well kept grounds, a nice castle forest walk around the castle mount. From the castle you have wonderful and breath-taking views over Murlough beaches and the magnificent Mourne Mountains. When passing through this...More

I stayed in Newcastle for a night and the castle was one of many sights to see. It's a pretty 12th Century castle ruin, typical of hundreds of others throughout Ireland, and it's worth a look. It's easily accessible.

Dundrum Castle, Co. Down is in ruins, but it’s obvious that it was a massive structure in its day. There is no charge for entry, and plenty of free parking, o that will please everyone, but please wear sensible shoes. It was wet and slippery...More

An old ruin at the end of a cul de sac in the village of Dundrum. Good views over the inner and outer bays and the south of the village. The Mourne Mountains are seen to full advantage from the upper parts of the ruins....More
