- Business Tourism Conference Space Provider Narrative: The Castle and grounds are a perfect venue for professional people to get together for conferences and formal or informal gatherings. The large dining room can become a dark room for film and computer projections and can seat up to sixty people. The grounds and forest are perfect for relaxing walks between lectures. A range of meals and snacks can be served and barbeques on the lawn may be arranged. Carrying on the tradition established by the entrepreneurs of the Victorian era in Warrenpoint, the castle and grounds offer a meeting place, as well as a place to relax. There is still over 300 acres of parkland and farm-land plus another 400 acres of forest, lakes and woods. Parking is ample at the property and the venue is accessible from both Dublin and Belfast, situated near the border town of Newry. Driving time from Dublin Airport is around 1 hour and takes just under an hour to travel from the city of Belfast via the M1 motorway.

Narrow Water CastleNewry Down - Northern Ireland
Excellent example of a tower-house and bawn built about 1568 at a point where the Newry River meets Carlingford Lough, a strategic spot. (Children under 16 years must be accompanied by an adult).
There has been a keep on this site since 1212. It was originally built by Hugh de Lacy, first Earl of Ulster, to prevent attacks on Newry via the river, as part of the area's Norman fortifications. The original was destroyed in the 1641 Rebellion.
