About this location
The County Down region
Greencastle is simply unique! and in a designated area of "Outstanding Natural Beauty" It has its own castle to explore (built circa 1200AD) and there is an ancient Motte just behind the holiday home. Kilkeel (6 miles away) is a fishing town with a working fleet of fishing trawlers in the harbour. Freshly caught fish can be bought during the week in the harbour area. Many of the local restaurants in Kilkeel, Warrenpoint and Rostrevor have fish on the menu. Kilkeel has a good swimming pool and the leisure centre also offers tennis courts, squash courts and a gym. Both Kilkeel and Kilbroney offer great park/play areas for younger children.
The Mourne Mountains allow easy access for numerous mountain trails and there are Forest parks at Tollymore and Kilbroney. A blue flag beach is just around the corner at Cranfield. Fishing from the rocks is a popular pass time. Greencastle is one of the last truly unspoilt hidden gems of Ireland.
Greencastle itself has a small local harbour that houses the two tug boats and two pilot boats that work with the large ships going into Greenore/Warrenpoint harbours. It is relaxing to sit at the large window in the living room and watch the 'traffic' out in the channel as well as watching the activities of the seals, Brent geese, Herons and Housemartins.
The road to the holiday house is a cul-de-sac so only local traffic uses it.
