Newcastle is a small coastal settlement situated 2km east of the N11 and on the R761. Historically the town centre developed around the Church of Ireland but in the nineteenth century the town developed further east, on the R761. The latter area contains the commercial element of the settlement. The land zoned in the current County Development Plan has potential to accommodate approximately 211 residential units.
