Castlewellan
The Essential
To the northwest of Newcastle, elegant Castlewellan stretches out along a shaded street lined with 18C houses. The post office, which is in a shop for children's clothes that doubles as a tobacconist, is something of a curiosity. Take the time to treat yourself to a break and enter one of the friendly pubs dotted around this picturesque village.
