Newcastle is about 23 miles from Newry and you could go Lisburn, Ballynahinch, Newcastle, Newry,

Its about 40mins drive from Newcastle to Newry

Yes its a seaside town at the foot of the Mourne mountains made famous by the Percy French song.

Don McLean dose a nice version if you want to hear it.

You can go the coastal route from Newry through Warrenpoint, Rostrevor and Kilkeel which is a nice, scenic drive.

hi there, Bobby, we're taking your tour in Belfast. Could you tell me the easiest way to get from Newry to Newcastle? We're starting out from Dublin and trying to sort out the easiest day to do with without a car.
