The Newry and Mourne region
The towns and villages of Mourne country are exciting destinations in their own right, also good bases for discovering the magic of the mountains. Popular resort Newcastle, where Slieve Donard really does 'sweep down to the sea' offers family fun, plus the bonus of mountains and championship golf (Royal County Down) on your doorstep.
Nearby Bryansford and Tollymore are centres for outdoor adventure - from the sublime to the extreme. There is pony-trekking, bouldering, canoeing, abseiling, hillwalking and even Ireland's only mountainboarding facility! Both Tollymore and Castlewellan have outstanding forest parks. Silent Valley, inland from restored harbour hamlet, Annalong, is another gem. Round the rocky coast, past busy fishing port Kilkeel, to Victorian Rostrevor. Its park begins as manicured lawns, but as you climb it becomes an arboretum, river walk and finally a mountain trail offering views across Carlingford Lough.
Blue Flag Cranfield Beach is also nearby.
Located in the Gap of the North, Newry is an excellent shopping city and the Newry and Mourne Museum is also well worth a visit.
Warrenpoint sits at the southern approach to the Mournes and at the point where the Clanrye River and Newry Canal open into Carlingford Lough. There was no town of Warrenpoint up until the beginning of the 19th century. The town was planned and built on a grid system by the landlords in Narrow Water.
The square is one of the largest in Ireland and saw many 'fair days' up until the late 1950s. The town came to prominence in the early 19th century, first as an outport for Newry, developing a thriving timber trade with North America and Canada.
By the mid 1800s Warrenpoint had grown to the 5th largest port in Ireland, in terms of imports and exports, including people. A plaque stands at the corner of the town dock to commemorate the thousands of emigrants who passed through the town in search of a better life.
All year round Warrenpoint offers well known restaurants providing a variety of foods to suit every taste and pocket.
Just outside Warrenpoint is Narrow Water Castle, an excellent example of a tower-house and bawn built about 1568 at the strategic point the Newry or Clanrye River meets Carlingford Lough.
The Magennis Coronation Stone or stone of destiny is located at Bridal Loanan in the town, preserved on its original site. Legend tells how the Magennis clan and all of the sub-clans, who owed allegiance to 'The Magennis', would fill the surrounding countryside while the chieftain of the clan was inaugurated by placing his foot and staff of pwer into slots in the stone.
Warrenpoint Park close to the centre of the town has a magnificent array of flowers and shrubs and the fine Edwardian bandstand is the focus for popular summer band concerts. Facilities include tennis courts and play area.
KIlbroney Forest Park which is situated in nearby Rostrevor (3 mile drive along the coast) is a splendid place to enjoy some outdoor activities.....tennis, horse and carriage rides, and the drive or walk to the "Big Stone. and Hermits Viewpoint." The views are breathtaking.

"Beyond expectations - absolutely stunning"
Located in "The Mournes", an area of Northern Ireland renowned for its natural beauty, Cedar Cottage complements its setting with an excellent layout and exquisite maritime-themed decor. It is very well equipped for a stay of any length for up to four persons. The owners, Norman and Rachel Purdy, have an in-depth knowledge of the area and its many activity possibilities, but have also provided for non-active times with a wide variety of reading and viewing materials and equipment.
We were sorry when our time was up, and have booked for a return visit.

"Absolutely delightful cottage."
Beautifully decorated and fitted out. Everything brand new. Every detail thought of and more. The owners leave tea, milk, bread and butter, eggs and cereal for when you arrive tired and hungry! Pretty garden with view of the sea and hills beyond. Plenty of comfortable seating both in and out. A great location to stay with many scenic drives close at hand. 5 minutes walk to an excellent Spar, local bakers, restaurants etc. Very friendly owners. Wifi worked all the time.

"Cedar Cottage provides luxury, comfort and quirky ideas in a lovely location"
The family visit to Warrenpoint was all the more successful because of this very comfortable and well sited cottage. It was beautifully decorated and had everything that a visitor would have needed including little extras like a welcome pack. The owners are very accommodating and will be on hand to help with any problems. There are bars and places to eat a short walk away and many beautiful places to visit in the vicinity. eg Kilbroney country park.
