A bracing Victorian cold-water bathing station, Newcastle is the main center for visitors to the hills. There's a good selection of cafés, pubs, and restaurants to choose from after a walk along the elegant seafront promenade. The visitor information center, at 10–14 Central Promenade, is well stocked with information on local attractions, and books and maps of walking and biking trails in the Mourne Mountains and forest parks. A mountain-biking trail map is available for £2.
