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

Great location for a beginner hike our first mountain climb. Can be as challenging or as relaxing as you want.

We recently stayed one night in Kilbroney caravan park in our motorhome and that was enough, the site alocated to us was so sloped we couldn't level the van even with ramps, we then asked the staff if we could move to one of the free level sites but were told no they are all booked, we also phoned a...

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

We have stayed at Kilbroney a few times now and never been disappointed. Nice 10 minute walk into Rostrevor, nice walks around the park itself (although do watch out for speeding mountain bikes!). Staff are very helpful, facilities spotlessly clean. Kids love it there so that means some peace and quiet for us - win, win!

This council run Caravan Park is in a beautiful location very close to Rostrevor Village which is about 20 minutes walk through Kilbroney Park. There are forest walks, cycling trails, playground and picnic areas very close by. The Caravan Park is well run and maintained. The caravan pitches are hardstanding, each with electricity and water but be aware that some... More

Lovely spot with some great activities, open spaces and walks as long as you don't mind the constant and steady flow of mountain bikes flying past you. We also had an ambulance show up to take somebody away. The view from the top car park is perfect for a picnic and the walk to cloughmore stone worth the sweat but... More

We had our first tent camping trip here over the Easter weekend, With twins aged 4 and a 9 year old. Weather was ok with on/ off rain showers. The campsite itself was brilliant and the toilet/ showers appeared to be cleaned in morning and night, they were not always clean though but this was down to the users themselves.... More

Have stayed on campsite here previously. Brilliant for walking, freedom. Our dog, in particular, loves this area.
