RainbowAn Radhairc provides panoramic views of the adjacent Mourne Mountains with forest clad Slieve Martin displaying the famed Cloughmore Stone.

Gaelic legend claims this 'big stone' was thrown from Co Louth, across Carlingford Lough, by the great Irish warrior Cuchulain, to rest at the top of Slieve Martin.

An Radhairc lies within walking distance of Carlingford Lough, Kilbroney Park and its Fairy Glen and amenities. It is also within a short distance of St Bronaghs ancient Church and graveyard, where the ruins of her monastery and holy well, and offers the perfect location to explore the Mourne region.

Local Activities:

Kilbroney Forest Park Rostrevor: (beside) - A huge expanse of scenic woodland and Public Park providing riverside walks, football pitches, Tennis Courts, barbecue, picnic and children’s play areas and restaurant.

Carlingford Lough: George Bernard Shaw summed it well in declaring Carlingford Bay as "more beautiful than the Bay of Naples and nature has smiled kindly on it".

Cranfield Bay: (6 miles East. A2) - Nearest sandy beach - blue flag quality – suitable for swimming and water activities.

Silent Valley Reservoir: (15 miles North) - Harnessed as a reservoir to capture the sparkling waters cascading from the surrounding Mournes and supplying domestic water to Belfast. The valley features a three-mile scenic trek to enable access to the spectacular Dam and Mourne Wall. Public entry is by foot or shuttle bus.

Castlewellan Forest Park: (22 miles away) - Nature walking, fishing, canoeing, Maze. Downpatrick & Co Down Railway: (34 miles away) – 3km of track – the only full size railway museum operating steam and diesel locomotives.

Armagh Cathedrals: Both deserve a visit to experience their history, design and architecture.

Just inside the door of the Protestant Cathedral the visitor can view the resting place of Brian Boru, the last High King of Ireland. “it bears in the heart of its bosum the ashes of Brian Boru”.

The cottage can be seen on the left as you look. An Radhairc (Irish) is not called 'the view' for no reason! Rotating the view is available by the controls just above the + symbol. Clicking on the arrows on the road enables you to move location.

Click the marker (changes to red on rollover) in the top left for map view. Please note the address provided by Google Maps in the top left corner is not always accurate.

Have fun and we hope you enjoy your holiday ...
