The Stunning Location
County Down is best known for its majestic Mourne Mountains and the surrounding landscape that is perfect for outdoor adventures. The author C.S. Lewis loved the Mournes and reportedly based his depiction of Narnia on the peaks, valleys and forests of these ancient granite mountains. The Carlingford Ferry 15 minute crossing operating from Greencastle to Greenore gives access to Carlingford, the Cooley Peninsula, Ireland’s Ancient East Coast, Dundalk and Dublin saving a 60 minute drive. The local area has been used as key film locations for the award winning HBO series ‘Game of Thrones’ and attracts visitors from across the world. Cranfield’s award winning Blue Flag beach is 9 minutes away by car and Kilkeel Golf Club is 5 minutes away.
Kilkeel has now been put on the International Map for visitors to Ireland as the Queen has conferred on Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle on the occasion of their wedding the titles of Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Earl and Countess of Dumbarton and Baron and Baroness of Kilkeel.
