I recently pitched a tent at the Kilbroney Park site for three nights and for my purposes it was ideal, as I was using it as a base to hike amongst the Mournes. The site was... read more

we've just returned from two nights camping in Kilbroney in Rostrevor with 3 children aged 11 to 14 and had the perfect weekend. We selected our camp site for our 6 man tent on the official website and paid £38 for 2 nights with electric hook up. The site operates with a key card for entry and use of toilet... More

I would highly recommend Kilbroney Forest Park in Rostrevor for a family camping holiday. This was our second june bank holiday camping here and the weather definitely did not dampen our enjoyment this year. The park is well spread out and very well maintained. We stayed on an electric tenting pitch with 3 other families and we had loads of... More

I recently pitched a tent at the Kilbroney Park site for three nights and for my purposes it was ideal, as I was using it as a base to hike amongst the Mournes. The site was clean, tidy and well-organised. For folk concerned with security, campers have their own key fob providing only them with access to the facilities, it... More

The... More

This point on the side of the mountain is just lovely to look across Carlingford lough and enjoy all the greenery as far as the eyes see beyond Warrenpoint.

Kilbroney is a Council run facility that needs significant investment. There is hardly a level pitch in the place and a number are placed precariuosly on the top of a hill. There is little privacy as occasional walkers and a genteman who offers horse and cart rides, have unlimited access to the caravan area. The WiFi didn't work and the... More

Fantastic park, kids loved it and playground was not crowded even with such great weather. All three kids under 6 loved it. The Narnia trail was great fun for them

Wonderful views from Cloughmore Big stone site looking towards Carlingford Lough. Good facilities on offer, we enjoyed refreshments at the cafe, service quick... More
