We stayed for 12 nights in Kilbroney, we were camping and had one terrible week of rain. Unfortunately we were in the bottom field of the campsite which is NOT suitable for tents at all, the ground is far too soggy, we had mud running down the hill into our tent. We should have been put in the upper field the ground is a lot more stable there, we were very dissappointed with our pitch, but we stuck it out because it was such a beautiful place and more so we had paid in advance. I gave a rating of "very good" for this campsite, I do think it is a excellent site but where our pitch was let it down, the area is just gorgeous and the people are so friendly. The campsite itself is lovely, the grounds are immaculate, there is a lovely cafe on site, laundry which closes at 11pm, the showers were grand maybe they could update them a little, one of the showers in the ladies block wasn't working the entire time we were there and another flooded and was out of action for 3 days. There was water and electricity for every pitch. My girls loved the playground. Security in the campsite is fantastic and it was great when a couple of other campers were getting a bit loud after midnight were told to calm things down. There is no shop on site but Rostrevor is only a 5 min walk away and there is a couple of shops a butchers and a couple of takeaways here. The best thing about this place has to be the lovely forest walks, its just spectacular, beautiful views.
Kilbroney is a great place as a base too, its only one hour from Belfast and there are lovely beaches with in a half hour drive, and Newry is only 10 mins away.
We will definitely return to Kilbroney but we will book the top field the next time.
