The County Down region
Rostrevor is a village and townland in County Down, Northern Ireland. It is within the Newry and Mourne District Council area. It lies at the foot of Slieve Martin on the coast of Carlingford Lough. The Kilbroney River flows through the village.
Kilbroney Forrest Park
There are few parklands in existence which could surpass the beauty of Kilbroney Park. Here mountain, stream, sea-lough and valley conjure up a scenic wonderland. The 97 acres which form Kilbroney Park lie close to the shore of Carlingford Lough in the shadow of the forest-clad Slieve Martin. As a backdrop to Kilbroney Park stands the impressive 4,000 acre Rostrevor Forest rising sharply from 30m to 500m above sea level. Planted in 1931 mostly with coniferous species, the forest has a breathtaking two mile forest drive providing panoramic views over Carlingford Lough, an old oak plantation dating from the 18th Century, the famous 40 tonnes "Cloughmore" or "Big Stone" and a host of animals ranging from grouse and irish jays to pine martens, red and grey squirrels, foxes and badgers.The park offers a wide range of facilities and services, which include tennis courts, childrens play area, playing fields, an aboretum, barbeque and picnic areas and cafÃ©. Open spaces and pathways in Kilbroney Park allow relaxing strolls and links directly into the forest park where trails lead through oakwoods and planted slopes of sitka spruce, douglas, fir and pine.
The Cloughmore car park at the end of the forest drive, 230 metres above sea level provides views of the surrounding forest and is a good starting point for the three waymarked trails. The trails vary in length from 1.25 miles to 4.5 miles, and take the visitor to various areas within the forest to enjoy the many magnificent views and beauty of the woodlands. Events held in the park inculde the Vintage Car show (June), Fiddlers Green International music festival (last week in July), many walking and hill climbing challenges, Kilbroney Stages Rally and Mourne Way marathon.

Rostrevor Mountain Bike Trails - Hosting World Police & Fire Games Mountain Biking 2nd August to 4th August 2013
On the shores of Carlingford Lough, the Rostrevor Mountain Bike Trails powered by Chain Reaction Cycles offer some challenging mountain biking where efforts are rewarded with incredible coastal views and exhilarating singletrack descents.
With a mouth watering 27km red trail and a hair raising 19km black trail Rostrevor is believed by many to be the top spot for mountain biking in Ireland.
When you add not just one but two purpose-built downhill trails to the mix, there's no denying it… Rostrevor is a mountain bikers' haven!

Just back from a weeks holiday at the property. We were very pleased in every respect. Each room is spacious and immaculate. It also has an extremely private back garden with lawn and spacious sunny deck area which overlooks open fields and hills. The area is stunning with a lovely atmosphere. We can't wait to return in the Autumn. The log burner in the lounge and the friendly local pubs, cafe's and restaurants make this a 12 month holiday destination. Highly recommended.
Thank you, I am so delighted that you and your family had a great holiday. Rostrevor is a wonderful place with so much to offer.
