Opening date 1999

The Quays Newry is a major retail and leisure centre situated in Newry, County Down and is one of Northern Ireland's top shopping destinations.

Opened in 1999, the centre was constructed on the site of the old coal yards which served the Albert Basin. An old warehouse, which was part of these yards was incorporated into the centre and is now used as office and retail space.

The centre has experienced shoppers from the Republic of Ireland, who cross the border to Newry to buy cheaper goods due to difference in currency. This remarkable increase in cross-border trade has become so widespread that it has lent its name to a general phenomenon known as the Newry effect.

The centre also contains a 10 screen Omniplex cinema.
