A fantastic place to stay. Lovely clean & cosy rooms, brilliant food & the second best Guinness ive ever tasted. The bar/restaurant is lovely , with a really nice clientele. Breakfast in the morning was excellent , with plenty of choice, great coffee choices & the friendliest service in the industry. Flagstaff could not be more helpful , especially the chap doing the breakfasts in the morning.

I've been here quite often, as a local it's THE place to take friends visiting. The view over the Clanrye river, and Carlingford Loch is a must. The only downside is getting there, either from the Omeath Rd, or Dublin Rd, also the view can be found on postcards, and anyone who visited's camera. All in all, worth the drive. Outstanding.

Its just a small drive up the hill. Once you get there the views are already incredible from the parking lot, but you can walk up a little bit as well for even better views. We were there on a clear day and the river and lough were really beautiful, with Newry sitting in the center of the scene. Lovely place.

On a clear day you have a stunning view of Carlingford Lough, Cooley pennisula and Mourne mountains all rolled into one.

This is one of the finest scenic viewpoints in all of Ireland. It shows Carlingford Lough which is an excellent example of a glacial feature. At low tide the sill at the mouth is easily identified as is the deep depression in the centre.
However this is just one of several geological features covering S Armagh and S Down, glacial and volcanic, that can be seen from this point. This is a must do for anybody visiting this area. Would you fancy a guided tour? Contact me!
