The Slieve Donard Resort and Spa in Newcastle, Northern Ireland has been acquired by Adventurous Journeys (AJ) Capital Partners.
The property was acquired from Hastings Hotels, Northern Ireland’s largest independent hotel operator, which has operated the property since 1972.

Howard Hastings, Managing Director of Hastings Hotels, said: âThis investment is a strong sign of confidence in the local market by a major international hotel operator with exciting ambitions for Slieve Donard in the years to come.
“I am confident that AJ Capital Partners will appreciate the hotel’s legacy and that, under their leadership, it will continue to thrive and maintain its reputation as an iconic destination in Northern Ireland.”
