Lifeboats have been stationed in Dundrum bay for over 180 years and the crews have been honoured with 36 awards for gallantry. The RNLI's Newcastle Lifeboat Station was opened in 1854 following numerous wrecks (including the stranding of the Great Britian in 1846). The Earl of Annesley MP paid for the boathouse. The station operates two lifeboats – an inshore D class lifeboat and an all-weather Mersey class lifeboat.
