Rostrevor is a picturesque village nestling beneath the majestic Mourne Mountains on the eastern shores of Carlingford Lough. Despite its petite size, Rostrevor is popular among holiday-makers, campers and caravanners not only because of its idyllic location but for its sailing, hillside forests and folk music. The 4,000-acre Rostrevor Forest is filled mainly with coniferous trees, and visitors climbing through it by car or on foot are rewarded with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside from the Cloughmore Stone. This enormous boulder, standing almost 1,000 feet above the village, comes from the Ice Age but is more often associated, through local folklore, with the legendary giant Finn McCool. Below the sweeping heights of Rostrevor Forest lie the 91-acre Kilbroney Forest Park, with inviting walks and outdoor facilities, and the Oakwood National Nature Reserve, a smaller but older woodland. Nearby, a clearing called Fiddler's Green is the setting for an annual week-long festival of traditional Irish folk music, culture and craic, where families with children are promised a safe, fun and friendly experience. In Kilbroney Cemetery, history lives on in the ruins of an ancient church named after St Bronagh and a 5th Century cross thought to mark her grave.
