The walking opportunities here are immense. It's good that cyclists stick to their own tracks and don't interfere with the walkers.We did have trouble finding the start of our planned walk, which added a lot of extra walking to our trip. This was due to a vital signpost having been knocked down and lying in the bushes.Perhaps that could be... More

Very secure site. Felt safe leaving tents unattended and the onsite maintenance people went round several times a day cleaning the area of litter and stuff. was a bit wary when a group of people turned up with a saw and axe and started chopping wood for a fire...dunno what happened cause we left and they hadn't lit it when...

We camped here recently with friends and will do our best to make it back another time. The park itself is relaxed yet there is a great buzz about it with families and friends just enjoying themselves. The shower/toilet block is clean and warm which can be difficult to get on some camping grounds. The walking trails from here are... More

This park is located close to the shores of Carlingford Lough. It's hilly, so not so good for a stroll. The car park at the bottom, near the campsite, leaves walkers with a lot of uphill to contend with. The viewing point at the top is pleasant, but not exceptional. Beware of the track to the left at the top... More

We spent a fabulous afternoon here, loved the scenery and thought the whole place was stunning. We drove to the top car park, parked and hiked the short but very steep climb up to the Big Stone. What fantastic views - across the water and over towards the hills the views are amazing. It was peaceful and quiet up there... More

Arrived at Kilbroney park just after 2 today, admittedly I was a bit nervous most of the reviews I have read have been very positive, the negative though were just that. Well heres my honest and frank opinion! There is nothing negative, on arrival I was met by friendly helpful staff, given the rules and honestly not hard to follow,... More
