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!
