Rostrevor Village

Rostrevor is a quaint and charming village, brimming with historical interest and folklore, including the Fairy Glen, Fiddlers Green, Giant Murphy's Grave and, of course, the giant Finn McCool. The village lies at the foot of Slieve Martin, on the shores of Carlingford Lough. Rostrevor is home to the breathtaking Rostrevor Forest and Kilbroney Park; here you can walk the Narnia Trail, climb up to ’The Big Stone’ or, if you are feeling very adventurous, enjoy the extensive mountain bike trails (indeed Rostrevor is widely regarded as one of the most exciting mountain bike destinations in Europe). 

Rostrevor and nearby Warrenpoint play host to numerous festivals including the Guinness International Blues on the Bay Festival, Fiddlers Green International Festival, Sleeping Giants Film Festival, Maiden of the Mournes International Festival, Mournes International Walking Festival and Kilbroney Vintage Show (Europe's largest classic vehicle show).

The Mourne Mountains

Throw on your walking boots and hike the beautiful Mourne Mountains, the highest and most dramatic mountain range in Northern Ireland. Kilbroney River Cottage is the perfect base from which to explore this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and inspiration for C. S. Lewis’ magical world of Narnia.

Things to do

Between the forests parks, beaches, mountains and adventure centres, Rostrevor and the Mourne area is an adventure playground. Activites include hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, cycling, tennis, golf, water sports, horse riding, archery, cooking school, gardens and butterfly house, to name but a few. Rostrevor is also a great base for days trips further afield.
