Went to Ireland to see Van in an intimate setting and this was the venue. Located in Newcastle Northern Ireland the Slieve Donard Resort was delightful. Like all of Ireland the staff was friendly and personable. The concert was superb. My wife visited the spa and was totally stress free the rest of the trip even with my left side... More

Is it acceptable to have to phone the duty receptionist at 1.30 on a Tuesday morning to complain about the unacceptable noise from the bar area, to be told that she cannot hear it because she's sitting in a 'back' office? The Duty Porter made no scrap of difference re intervening. By 3:00 the last of the revellers were finally... More

I have visited the hotel many times over the years, primarily for business events. This time we were there for a family wedding. The hotel showed their excellence in customer service before the event when, for reasons of ill health, it looked like rooms may not be needed. When the situation was explained, there was no argument, no claims of... More

We love this hotel. The situation and views from it are amazing. The beds and pillows are very comfortable. The pool is lovely but the jacuzzi has to be the best ever. The buffet breakfast had a great selection for everyone however if hotel is busy try and get down as early as possible to avoid the 'rush'. Great memories... More

We got married in Newcastle, not at the Slieve Donard, but we stayed at the hotel for four nights before and after. Not quite what I was expecting from a five star resort-- it was truly a mixed experience. I'd give it a 3.5, but rounded up since there was more good than bad. The Good: - In honor of... More

This hotel was really nice, the rooms were a good size with a view of the sea and mountains. We loved it so much that we are booked to go back in Feb 2017. The staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good although we had to wait 20 minutes to be seated because they were so busy.
