I've been here quite often, as a local it's THE place to take friends visiting. The view over the Clanrye river, and Carlingford Loch is a must. The only downside is getting there, either from the Omeath Rd, or Dublin Rd, also the view can be found on postcards, and anyone who visited's camera. All in all, worth the drive. Outstanding.

Its just a small drive up the hill. Once you get there the views are already incredible from the parking lot, but you can walk up a little bit as well for even better views. We were there on a clear day and the river and lough were really beautiful, with Newry sitting in the center of the scene. Lovely place.
