This is one of the finest scenic viewpoints in all of Ireland. It shows Carlingford Lough which is an excellent example of a glacial feature. At low tide the sill at the mouth is easily identified as is the deep depression in the centre.
However this is just one of several geological features covering S Armagh and S Down, glacial and volcanic, that can be seen from this point. This is a must do for anybody visiting this area. Would you fancy a guided tour? Contact me!

Hopefully you will get a clear day when you visit but in any case this place is beautiful and relaxing. Wasn’t too busy when we visited but it was still popular with locals and tourists alike. Don’t follow google maps to closely as mine sent us around Flagstaff three times!! Make sure you visit the nearby dolmen as well.

Flagstaff always takes my breath away. Lovely quiet place with spectacular views of Co Down and o'meath area. View from Newry to as far as greenore and greencastle. Place for picnic and able to play games on grass area.

Although in pain after a long days cycling we went up here. Glad we did as the view is impressive looking down from above
