One of the fastest growing cities on the island of Ireland, Newry enjoys a vibrant and boisterous setting nestled in the picturesque Ring of Gullion.

Never has the phrase “the best of both worlds” been so fitting. With an avalanche of top retailers and two major shopping centres pulsing through its centre, Newry, a city drenched in history, is literally minutes away from some of the most stunning countryside in Ireland.

Off the beaten track is the splendour of Flagstaff Viewpoint - many would argue it plays host the best view anywhere on the island on a clear day. If you’re lucky enough to have the weather on your side, it might be hard to argue with that assessment.

As Carlingford Lough comes majestically into view, you’ll get a glimpse of what can be accessed with ease thanks to Newry’s supreme road network. 

Newry’s reputation as a gateway to cross border beauty spots and energetic towns is fully justified, but it’s a gateway for people there as well. Huge numbers of commuters and customers from far and wide visited the city throughout 2016 and it’s easy to see why.

Whether you’re looking for fashion, food, jewellery, homewear or toys, Newry has the perfect mix of retailers, choice and value for money. 

Visit the Buttercrane and Quays Shopping Centres for high street labels and leading brands or head to the Cathedral and Creamery Quarters for an intimate personal shopping experience. 

From fine dining to contemporary bars and bistros serving the finest cuisine with exceptional value, Newry offers something for everyone.

No trip to Newry is complete without a visit to Bagenal’s Castle, a sixteenth century fortified house and adjoining nineteenth century warehouse which houses Newry and Mourne Museum and Newry Visitor Information Centre.

Newry was granted city status in 2002 and continues to hit new milestones all the time - it even claims to have the biggest indoor go-karting track in Europe. 

If you’re a thrill-seeking adventurer or simply want to absorb your surroundings, a choice of established hotels are ready to cater for you.

Newry City’s 4* Canal Court Hotel and Francis Court Hotel are optimum choices for a Christmas getaway, and right now you can make the most of fantastic seasonal offers. 

This Christmas in Newry looks to the be best yet and with the creation of the Newry Business Improvement District (BID) this city will go from strength to strength in 2017. 

Every street is brimming with secrets and there are many quirky shops offering something a little bit different, while classy boutiques and cafes allow you to soak up the special atmosphere emanating throughout Newry.  

So get down and experience all that Newry has to offer for yourself this Christmas. For more information visit www.newry.com
