Dundrum translates from the Irish Dun Droma as fort of the ridge.

Murlough National Nature Reserve is situated between Dundrum and Newcastle and is owned by the National Trust.

Dundrum Horn sculpture adopts the theme of the Tonn Rural, the mythical wave associated with Dundrum and takes inspiration from the earliest trumpets indigenous to Ireland. It represent the wave's mythical annunciating roar and is embellished with text and images representing life in Dundrum today. The mouth piece becomes a sonic ear piece through which the actual sounds of the bay are concentrated and amplified, the trumpet also has a visual aspect where you can look through scope and see the framed bay.

The ever popular TV presenter and comedian, Patrick Kielty, was born and raised in Dundrum.
