A city in Northern Ireland that is slashed in half by the Clanrye River, Newry sits only 55km from Belfast and 108km from the bustling big smoke of Dublin. Newry is on the small side, as it only has a population of around the 26,967 mark, so you should have no trouble meeting up with the locals in a cafe or a coworking venue. The city was founded beside a Cistercian monastery in 1144 and is one of Ireland's oldest towns. Originally a market town that became a garrison and then in 1742 a port city, Newry is known as the "Gap in the North", due to its closeness to the border of the Republic of Ireland.
Known as being a shopaholics dream location, Newry is the best provincial shopping town in the north of Ireland with hordes crossing the border to buy cheaper goods due to the currency difference. This cross-border trade is so widespread that it has been named "the Newry effect" with The New York Times describing the town as "the hottest shopping spot within the European Union's open borders, a place where consumers armed with euros enjoy a currency discount averaging 30 percent or more". As a consequence there is traffic chaos that has become a political bouncing ball.
Newry itself may not be a tech hub, but coworking venues are the place to escape the marauding bargain-hunters.
