Welcome to

Greenhill YMCA National Outdoor and Residential Centre

Greenhill YMCA is an outdoor learning and residential centre set in a beautiful 17 acre site on the slopes of Slieve Donard Mountain in the heart of the Kingdom of Mourne. With panoramic views over the town of Newcastle and Dundrum Bay, with the Mountains behind and the Sea in front, and views that have to be seen to be believed.

YMCA has been delivering outdoor programs on the Greenhill site for over 100 years. Our dedicated team of local and international staff make Greenhill YMCA the ideal place for any young person to reach their full potential.

Our range of accommodation allows us to provide a variety of residential experiences.  Add to this our expanding range of activities and you really have to look no further.

Whether you are looking for a full activity packed residential or a more relaxed and easy going stay without activities, Greenhill can offer personalised programs to suit your group’s individual needs and budgets.
