Planning a golf trip to N. Ireland for June 2012 and have Royal County Down on my must play list. I am a 48 year-old male and will most likely be by myself. In addition to playing golf I like to enjoy a good meal and a pint or two in the evening. There is limited information available on Newcastle, so I am wondering if it is a decent place to stay for a couple nights while I tackle Royal County Down.
Any thoughts on Newcastle as a place to stay would be greatly appreciated.
