My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Slieve Donard on New Years Eve, and what can I say, everything was just perfect from start to finish! The very run up to our wedding was completely stress free, all the T's where crossed and I's dotted before we even had a chance to ask any questions! We were...

Would just like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved for the service provided in such an excellent establishment! This was my first (off hopefully many more) night’s stay in the Slieve Donard Resort & Spa and the experience was second to none.

We had an excellent stay at the slieve donard resort and spa. On arrival, our room wasn't ready but we were early. We were allowed to access the spa but there was no robes provided. We had to go back up to reception and ask. These were given to us and they apologised for the inconvenience. The cocktails is the...

We raised an issue with the front of house manager whilst we were at the hotel. We were extremely unsatisfied with our stay due to many aspects. When arriving in our room the level of cleanliness was nowhere near a 4* hotel standard. There were sweets leftover on the floor from previous occupants, scum/dirt around the shower and sink (we...

A beautiful hotel with beautiful views (although sadly our bedroom only had views of the hotel roofs) I would recommend you give yourself plenty of time to enjoy the pool area but check what classes if any are on ( pool can get very busy) we also enjoyed our cocktails

Slieve Donard is right on the beachfront at Newcastle, County Down. The views of the Mourne mountains, the sea and beach are stunning and quite unique in my view. It is a large hotel and I have stayed in both the older style and newly renovated rooms. Both have been good and the beds have been exceptionally comfortable. My experience...

This week we had a 3 day conference at the Slieve Donard and we were treated like we were the only guests in the hotel. Great refurbished conference room, all the tech support we asked for, free wifi. Food was fabulous. Especially dinner in the restaurant. Couldn't fault it. Rooms offer luxury bedding and huge beds, robes, slippers and lovely...

As expected it was amazing again. Great spa. Spacious room ( although it was noticeable smaller than my last superior double room). Great view of the sea from the room. Room was right beside the lift and only woke once at 8 am from people passing. Comfy beds. Nice breakfast. Pleasant staff. Stayed in a lot of hotels and this...

Once again we spent our wedding anniversary at Slieve Donard. We were not disappointed. Fabulous Christmas atmosphere. Staff very friendly and helpful as always. Very comfortable bed. A nice touch getting treats left on a slate with Anniversary wishes. We enjoyed using pool and jacuzzi before heading out for dinner. I love the Slieve Donard breakfast especially the porridge with...
