Rostrevor is a hidden gem and well worth a visit. The Narnia walk is top notch and a real surprise. I reccomend lunch at the old church it was delicious.

Stunning view Prefect wee spot to pull in your car and take in the breathtaking views of the beautiful lough. Safe place for kiddies to stretch their legs after a long car journey and enjoy a picnic
