  • Great place for kids to let their imaginations run wild. Beautiful views and picnic area.
  • The village of Dundrum is great for walkers. There are greenway lanes through out the place. There is a coastal walk that takes you to the Nation Trusts Mourlough Nature Reserve. Above the village is the Ruin Castle. Good free parking & toilets.
  • Great place for an exploration with the kids.
  • In some fashion I carry the Magennis name, and being here was nothing short of magical. The views of the bay are beyond beautiful.
  • Always a pleasant walk leading to time of poignant reflection on the history of mankind. Offers exceptional views of the Dundrum Bay and Newcastle sea front as well as the Mourne mountains
