Wee bit hard to find as signage is inadequate. But once found a short drive upwards from Bernish Viewpoint which is also a spectacular viewing spot with a car park. The Cairn has a limited parking area. It's well preserved and makes one think of...More

This neolitiic court grave is close to Bernish viewpoint and set in the Ring of Gullion not far from another such grave at Clontygora. Both striking but the views around Ballymacdermot are spectacular.

I don't know much about the history of the ancient ruins here but on a good day the views are stunning a drive around this area you will find ancient churches and graves, a forest park and camlough lake a really beautiful part of Ireland.

This is a nice place to drive too and look about. It is also very quiet at times which is great. The formation of the stones is impressive

Excellent ancient burial tomb views around are beautiful it's just a pity some people keep dumping beds, washing machines, and trash around on a regular basis and as usual Newry and Mourne council don't do anything about it. We should try harder to make the...More
