General information

Newry Visitor Information Centre

Newry Visitor Information Centre is situated in Bagenal's Castle, a 16th century house and adjoining 19th Century warehouse sympathetically restored to house Newry & Mourne Museum and the Visitor Information Centre.

During restoration work on the Castle many original features were uncovered including fireplaces, windows, doorways, gun loops and a bread oven. These have been interpreted for the visitor and drawings were commissioned to illustrate how the various living quarters of the castle would have functioned in the 16th century.

The Museum's exhibitions trace the social and political history of the Newry and Mourne area from the prehistoric period up to the early 21st century.

Newry Visitor Information Centre offers visitors free information on places to visit, tours, transport, accommodation, activities and events . It has also a pretty retail area where visitors can purchase local crafts, produce and souvenirs.
