Nestled along a sandy coastline and overlooking the Mountains of Mourne, Slieve Donard offers guests a uniquely Northern Irish experience. From stylish suites with jaw-dropping sea views to a world-class golf course right on the doorstep, you won’t need to look any further to find the perfect place for a relaxing getaway. 

Built during the Victorian era in 1896, Slieve Donard was originally built by the Belfast and County Down Railway as an “end of the line” luxury holiday destination. It typified the idea of Victorian grandeur and luxury, complete with its very own bakery, vegetable gardens, Drawing Room, Grand Coffee Room and Writing Room. 

In 2021 Slieve Donard became the first Marine & Lawn Hotels & Resorts property in Northern Ireland and the fourth hotel in the collection. Today, passengers travel from around the globe to enjoy its traditional comforts and modern-day facilities.
